Best liquor gifts 2022

The Best Liquor Gifts 2022

Most of us love gifting. Giving something to someone special makes us feel great. However, if you are like most people, the finding the best gift part isn’t as enjoyable. You can take the easy way out and give someone a gift card, but that just seems impersonal and not very thoughtful. So what is a great gift that most people would enjoy? Liquor!

 

Liquor gifts are really the best. If you’ve spent an evening or two with someone, you probably know what they like to drink. Liquor gifts are guaranteed to be gifts they’ll use, and the best part is they can enjoy the gift with others.

 

To make it even easier for those that are gifting-challenged, we’ve created a list of the best liquor gifts of 2022.

$239.99

 

Although this is a 2021 limited edition bottle, it was introduced with a limited supply in late 2021 making it one of top liquor gifts for 2022. Not only is this an extraordinary tequila aged for 7 years in French oak barrels, but the bottle itself is a masterpiece. The artwork is created by an LA-based artist, Ramona Pacheco.

This took the number 1 spot for the Whisky Advocate’s Whisky of the year. A collaboration between Parks and Rec star Nick Offerman and Lagavulin brings this 11 year whiskey finished in Guinness beer casks. This younger expression (aged 11 years) is not typical of Lagavulin, however, it brings about a brighter and more playful flavor.

Whispering Angel Rosé

Chateau D'Esclans - Whispering Angel Caves D' Esclans Rose - 750 ml

When we think of good rosé, we can’t help but think of Whispering Angel. In the heart of Provence, in an idyllic Tuscan villa-style chateau, lies the Chateau d ‘Esclans from where this beautiful rosé hails. Given 92pts by James Suckling, he describes it as “Very pale apricot-pink color. Delicate aromas of sliced apple, pink grapefruit, peach, cream and stones follow through to a medium body and crisp acidity”. And most critics agree that this one of the best rosé’s in its class.

Wine Pairings For Fall Dishes

Best Wine Pairings for Fall Dishes

 

Everyone looks forward to enjoying savory comfort foods in the fall. Take your favorite fall foods to the next level by pairing them with a wine that will elevate the flavor of your meal.

 

CHARDONNAY PAIRINGS

 

Chardonnay pairings

 

Chardonnay is versatile wine. With rich, buttery flavors and some acidity, it pairs beautifully with roasted chickenpan-fried salmon, mashed potatoes, and grilled veggies.

 

Some of our top picks are Hess Select Chardonnay, Butter Chardonnay, and Bonterra Organic Chardonnay

 

 

PINOT NOIR PAIRINGS

 

Pinot Noir Pairings

 

A Thanksgiving meal isn’t complete without a great Pinot Noir.  With notes of black cherry, raspberry, tobacco, and back tea, this flavorful yet relatively lighter red can pair great with almost any fall dish, especially roasted Turkey, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted pork loin.

 

Some of our top picks are Sanford Santa Rita Hills Pinot NoirCoppola Diamond Pinot Noir,  and J. Lohr Pinot Noir.

 

 

ROSÉ PAIRINGS

 

Rose wine pairings

 

Rosé compromises between the extremes of red and white — less intense than a big, tannic, mouth-busting red, but with more depth than a super-light white. And it covers a range of flavor –  light and fruity, to spicier and darker. That’s why rosé can be paired with all kinds of food! Try rosé with a grilled corn and asparagus saladwarm baked brie, and cranberry cheesecake is even more delicious with a sparkling rosé.

 

Some of our top picks are Whispering Angel Rosé, Chloe Rosé,  and for sparkling – Mionetto Sparkling Rosé.

 

 

CABERNET SAUVIGNON PAIRINGS

 

Cabernet Sauvignon pairings

 

It’s no surprise that Cabernet Sauvignon is a favorite in the food world. Its bold flavor and dark fruit notes truly enhance the flavors of hearty dishes. We recommend pairing it with braised beef short rib (or any beef dish), sausage pizza and charcuterie and cheese board.

 

Some of our top picks are J Lohr Hilltop Cabernet SauvignonJosh Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon,  and Groth Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Whatever your craving may be, we have the perfect wine pairing for your favorite fall dishes.

What Are The Best Canned Margaritas?

Ok so you’ve seen a ton of new pre-made margarita cocktails and maybe you’re curious if any of them are actually good? We did all the “research” for you – yes yes, we tasted a bunch of the canned/ready to drink margaritas on the market and made a list of the best ones for you.

 

These beverages are perfect for the summer…you can throw them in a beach bag or a cooler and have a margarita ready to drink without the hassle of mixing one up yourself.

 

Two Chicks Sparkling Citrus Margarita 

 

Two Chicks Sparkling Citrus Margarita - 4pk

 

This is a slightly sweet and very well-balanced with the traditional citrusy flavors of a classic margarita. The subtle agave flavor immediately comes through and has a refreshing and tangy finish. We love this cocktail because you get two servings in a can with 5% alcohol by volume (abv) per serving. We recommend this poured over ice but it’s just as tasty out of the can. What we love about this is it also makes a great mixer. Since the abv on this isn’t wildly high, you can definitely mix this with tequila if you’re looking for a stronger drink.

 

On The Rocks Margarita Cocktail Made with Hornitos Tequila

 

On the Rocks Margarita 375ml

This is definitely one of the more premium ready to drink margarita cocktails. The sleek, fancy glass bottle sets the tone for  what you’re about to experience. This cocktail is made with Hornitos, a mid range tequila, which would be our recommendation when making your own margarita at home. This cocktail has a 20% abv, similar to what you would expect from a margarita at a bar. As the name says, we highly recommend drinking this on the rocks.

 

Cutwater Margarita

 

Cutwater Lime Tequila Margarita 4pk cans 12oz

Tart, a bit sweet with a hint of orange. This canned margarita is made with real tequila and triple sec and lime, exactly the type of ingredients you would find in a classic margarita. It contains 12.5% abv so you’ll definitely get a slight buzz from one can. We recommend pouring this over ice and adding a squeeze of lime.

 

Miami Cocktails Copper Pot Margarita

 

This awesome cocktail is made from blue weber agave wine. Yes, you can make wine from agave! You would never know this is a wine-based cocktail though…the flavor profile is very much similar to a tequila-based cocktail but you’ll get more of a “wine buzz”. We love this cocktail that comes in a 750ml bottle because it’s high in abv (12%) but only 100 calories/serving! It’s also gluten-free and organic so you won’t feel too guilty about drinking this one.

 

If you’re like me and call your tequila on the rocks with a splash of lime juice “a margarita,” then I have the best canned tequila beverages for you. Mamitas Tequila & Lime and Compa Lemon Lime Tequila & Soda are more of a tequila & soda with a splash of lime beverages. Both being around 100 calories each and practically no sugar, they are super easy to sip on.

 

 If you have a favorite canned margarita, we’d love to hear about it! Email us at hello@sipsyla.com and let us know why you love it so much.
