It’s that time of year again. That right, the time of year where I get to show you all the exciting new spirits, supplies, gizmos and gadgets that would make any bar enthusiast shake with glee! And let’s face it, who doesn’t like fancy drinking supplies. I know I do. So whether you’re the one making the drinks, sipping the drinks, or both (like me) this guide is my gift to you.

Can you please make a tutorial on Home bar setup ideas or something related to it?

First of all, obsessed with that seltzer bottle but what I mean to say is that I’m obsessed with this entire guide (and all your cocktails for that matter). I seriously love that you included Bittermilk. Tastiest cocktail mixers, ever.

So many interesting things in this gift guide! That growler is the coolest!
