The 8th Day of Christmas: Cocktails & Beer

Fill those gift bags with lots of Christmas cheer! We've got tons of options for cocktail connoisseurs, winos and beer lovers!


Shopping for a special someone interested in the craft brewery and distillery scene? We have the perfect way to aid them on their quest -- and help you score as the best gift giver of the season!  Craft Notes is a combo guide/journal/passport that provides info on eighteen carefully selected locations that make up an impressive part of the local craft culture.  With tasty information, a place to record personal notes, and a free specialty beer or drink waiting at each spot this is an unbelievable value worth several times over the $25 purchase price.  Craft Notes will no doubt see you toasted and your thoughtfulness remembered again and again. 

Someone once said they'd like to buy the world a drink.  Well, in case you'd like to toast the world with a drink, Bibelot has just the thing!  A beautiful set of six toasting flutes each fashioned with its own individual gracefully gilded script: Cheers, Skol, Sante, Chin Chin, Salute and Prost.  To all the world this Christmas and in the year to come: Peace and Cheers!

The Twin Cities have much to offer adventurous drinkers as well as their hosts. Bibelot is proud to offer Minneapolis' own line of unique handcrafted mixers by The Twisted Shrub.  Apple cider vinegar, fruit and pure cane sugar along with your own creative ideas combine to make an unforgettable drinking experience -- be it mixed with seltzer, soda water, champagne or more.  Four fantastic flavors to choose from, or why not choose all? Pineapple Habanero (possibly combined with bourbon), Peach Habanero (add whiskey), Apple Ginger (maybe vodka), and last but not least Strawberry Lime (perhaps soda, or even tequila).  You simply can't go wrong. 

Bartending 101.  These bar glasses by Kikkerland will make even the most novice mixologist look, and more importantly, taste like a pro.  In sets of four, either 8 oz. or 16 oz, 4 separate recipes are printed directly on each glass giving you sixteen practically foolproof opportunities to impress.  Within each set, there is a glass featuring Gin (think Salty Dog or Bees Knees), Rum (Mojito or Dark and Stormy among others), Vodka (Bloody Mary, White Russian) and of course Whiskey (maybe a Dinah or perhaps a classic Whiskey Sour).   Give these bartending glasses as a gift and then check in regularly on your student's progress!

There is a certain art to hosting the perfect cocktail party.  A certain art and a definite style. Add some flair and turn your everyday gathering into an absolute Mad-Men-inspired bash with hip cocktail stirrers sure to set a mood.  Faceted gems crafted from genuine plastic, bronze trophies, glittery gold stars shiny Christmas trees and Santas -- all of these are available to decorate the stirrer blending your very own highball.  And please, please don't forget the colorfully mischievous monkeys waiting to hang by their curly tails!

Finally, during this season of love and goodwill, there is much to be thankful for. Spread that feeling of gratitude and appreciation with these beautiful stemless wine glasses imprinted in gold leaf with the sentiment "Give Thanks".  

And, as always, we at Bibelot are thankful for YOU!
