Give the gift of a rich bourbon, tart cider, or tasty cocktail this holiday season!

A. Atlanta Hard Cider Co. Pomegranate Craft Cider

Give the gift of a locally made cider this year! This beautiful blush pomegranate drink is everything you need in a cider: it’s crisp, sweet, tart, and refreshing. Don’t like pomegranate? It also comes in honey! $11.99 for a six-pack, Tower Beer, Wine, and Spirits; 2161 Piedmont Rd. NE; 404-881-0902; in person and online: buckhead.towerwinespirits.com.

B. Legends 100 Proof Bourbon

At 50% ABV, this Georgia-made bourbon is not for the faint of heart, but with slight overtones of caramel, chocolate, and rye with a hint of cocoa, it goes down creamy and warm. $66.99 for 750ml, Tower Beer, Wine, and Spirits.

C. Portland Syrups Beverage Mixers

Make a delicious and unique cocktail with ease with these delicious mixers. A little drop into your beverage goes a long way to add flavor and depth. Flavors include strawberry lemon-lime, mojito, mango habanero, root beer, ginger, spicy ginger, hibiscus cardamom, rose cordial, vanilla-spice rooibos, bright chai, marionberry, and citrus-passion. $10.99 for 100ml, Citizen Supply at Ponce City Market; 675 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE; 678-705-9145; in person.

D. Rivulet Pecan Liqueur

If you’ve never tasted notes of pecan in your holiday cocktail, you’re missing out. This world-class luxury liqueur makes for a perfect holiday gift — drink it neat; on the rocks; in a Brown Recluse with cynar and brown ale; or a Southern Manhattan with bourbon, orange bitters, and a twist. $31.99 for 750ml, Tower Beer, Wine, and Spirits.

E. Johnnie Walker 12 Days of Discovery

What better way to count down the 12 Days of Christmas than with whiskey?

F. Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon

There’s no better time than the holidays to splurge on a nice wine! Wine critic James Suckling gave this Chilean wine a score of 100 points, calling it “a testimony to balance, harmony, and transparency in a great red.” Want to make it even more special? You can get a custom message engraved on the bottle for $20 extra. $99.99, Tower Beer, Wine, and Spirits.
