Booze is a gift you can’t go wrong with. It’s pretty safe for everyone (except maybe your alcoholic cousin) because you can give them something you know they’ll love, or encourage them to try something new. Here are our favorite winter sips and accoutrements to enhance your imbibing. If you’re lucky, the recipient might even pop the bottle and share a glass with you. How’s that for a self-serving present?
