Tis the (sipping) season

Merry Drinkmas! Yes, it’s time again for the 12 bottles of Christmas, our annual gift guide to all things sip-worthy. As in years past, we’ve included bottles of many kinds — wine, spirits, cider, you name it — at a variety of price points. Keep in mind that during this most festive of seasons, you’re allowed to buy a gift for yourself, too. And if you’re looking for other suggestions, don’t forget our 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012 editions of the 12 Bottles of Christmas. Happy shopping (and happy holidays)!

The red bottle

For nearly 200 years, the good folks of Peter Heering, a Danish distiller, have been crafting a sweet, cherry-flavored sip that’s known simply as Cherry Heering. While the red-hued drink has had a somewhat grandmotherly reputation — Queen Elizabeth II is said to be a fan — it’s caught on of late with the hipster set, especially because of the fact it works so well in a variety of cocktails. (And it’s a must-have for making a Singapore Sling.) For the holidays, the brand has come out with a special packaging ($30) that includes a bottle and two limited-edition glasses.
