Cocktail Gifts for the Party Animal

Party Animal

Known for his fun-loving and inclusive nature, this extrovert always finds a reason to celebrate. He throws elaborate extravaganzas to bring people together, especially on holidays. This selection accompanies specific occasions: Cinco de Mayo, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, Kentucky Derby, and Independence Day. Our kits can handle the Party Animal’s lengthy guest list, serving at least 12 and usually 16+ drinks. By contrast, most of our peer offerings are comprised of mini bottles serving 2-4.

Cocktail Gifts for those that Love Christmas

Santa’s Little Helper

Already sipping egg nog in October, Santa's Little Helper never complains about ‘holiday creep.' She strings lights up the day after (or on) thanksgiving and her Christmas tree is always on point. Make the most of the holidays and give her a way to keep the spirit going.

Cocktail Gifts for the Island Dreamer

Island Dreamer

Why choose between wanderlust and the real world? The Island Dreamer appreciates relaxing escapes more than most. He can be found flipping through Condé Nast Traveler or customizing his screensaver with old vacation snapshots. Infusing a summery spirit into dreary winter months, our tropical kits are the best way to satisfy his exotic tastes. Short of booking a flight to Fiji.

Cocktail Gifts for Spice Lovers

Fire-Breather

Possessing an unquenchable zest for life, the Fire-Breather isn’t afraid of a little spice. She abides by Oscar Wilde’s mantra: Everything in moderation, even moderation. The Fire-Breather worshipped sriracha before it was cool. But if you’re tempted to pick up a few bottles of ubiquitous hot sauce, remember: she loathes bandwagons and values originality.

Cocktail Gifts for the Vintage Lover

Vintage Lover

Like clothing, people, and heartbreak, most things get better with time. You can find the Vintage Lover re-arranging his vinyl collection or searching for ephemera on eBay. These concoctions exude character and a vintage quality that doesn’t require a trip to the thrift store.

Cocktail Gifts for the Romantic

The Romantic

This type appreciates classic literature, soft lighting schemes, and handwritten notes. Delicate by nature and somewhat shy, the Romantic embodies F. Scott Fitzgerald’s characterization: “She achieved the elusiveness that gives hidden significance to the least significant remarks.” Despite her intimidatingly impeccable taste and tendency to notice everything, the solution is simple. A thoughtful, personalized gift always wins the day.

Cocktail Gifts for the Protagonist

The Protagonist

This type is magnetically charming. The Protagonist has an affinity for jazz, pocket squares, well-delivered witticisms, and late nights with smoky drinks in smokier rooms. He projects the rare poise, grace, and humble confidence of someone embracing - not manufacturing - his leading man status. This quintessential gentleman is classically handsome and imminently likeable, with a sensitivity that suggests hidden depths worth exploring. The Protagonist shares Don Draper’s multi-layered worldliness, effect on women, and preference for Old Fashioneds.

Cocktail Gifts for the Southern Belle

Southern Belle

If your special someone is a Southerner (or Southern at heart), we’ve got you covered. These cocktails will transport your Belle or Gentleman to the days of outdoor barbecues, seersucker, and sundresses. The Kentucky Derby may be five months away, but it’s never too early to lock down a world-class signature beverage for the annual soiree.

Cocktail Gifts for the Traditionalist

Traditionalist

Just the classics, please. This type is impervious to trends and exudes the old-world elegance of black-and-white movies. Traditionalists recognize the inherent luxury of well-crafted staples when choosing clothing, cuisine, and - yes - cocktails. If you’re shopping for the James Bond or Audrey Hepburn in your life, look no further.

Cocktail Gifts for the Marathoner

Marathoner

These low-alcohol cocktails are for the guy who paces himself over a night of drinking. This type views parties as marathons not sprints. Maybe he’s in training for an actual race. With these kits, the Marathoner can join the fun without compromising taste or fearing a hangover.

Just pour these year-round favorites, break out the h’orderves, and press play.
