Gifts For The Cocktail Enthusiast
For those that love to try their hand at making cocktails – what’s more versatile than using vodka as the base to build upon? Grey Goose Vodka has created some amazing gift sets this year that would be perfect! The gift boxes vary from Grey Goose's VX, which is vodka with a hint of precious cognac to their cocktail sampler with 3 premium flavours: l'Orange, Cherry Noir and La Poir. Here’s a great recipe to get them started in their cocktail making adventures:
Grey Goose Fireside
2 parts Grey Goose Vodka
2 tsp organic maple syrup
1 pint of salt
1 rosemary sprig
Top with fresh pink grapefruit juice
Gifts For The Oenophile
For those who enjoy their glasses of wine, what’s better than sipping it out of a breathable wine glass by Eisch where it makes decanting a thing of the past. Or if they’ve already gotten a lovely set of glasses, let them experiment with a wine subscription. Where every month a new set of wines will be delivered to them and allow them to try new exciting varietals or wineries that they may not have tasted before.
Gifts For The Chef
For that somebody on your list always trying to create new dishes and experimenting with different flavours the ‘Try the World’ subscription allows them to use their imagination every month when they receive a box filled with eight different goodies from a specific country. The country will change monthly and an expert chef will choose items unique to that location. Recipes and stories accompany the items so you can learn more about that regions cuisine.
Gifts For The Food Conoisseur
For those that are on team eat, a lovely night out at one of Calgary’s many fine restaurants is always a treat. But with so many what’s a good one to pick? Luckily I can help a bit with that. I have TWO Gift Cards to GIVEAWAY! One is for the newly opened Oliver & Bonacini’s The Guild Restaurant on Stephen Avenue. The second is for Starbelly in south Calgary, where they have recently welcomed their new executive Chef. Leave a comment to be entered! If you’re looking at other potential restaurants, maybe one of my restaurant reviews can help with your decision! There are so many great offerings in Calgary that you’ll be pleased no matter what the choice.
I wish all those good luck with trying to find that special someone their perfect gift! There's truly nothing more exciting that the holidays. Hope you guys all get to enjoy!
