DIY Classic Cocktail Kit, Wrapped and Ready to Give
For the entertainers who have it all, or for the guy on your list who doesn't seem to want or need anything, the Reed Street Bottle Shop in Coxsackie is here to help you finish up your shopping list. They've got these prepackaged, ready-to-give Cocktail Gift Packs. Each pack contains all the ingredients you need to make a classic cocktail, such as a gin martini, vodka martini, Manhattan, or elderflower-and-prosecco sparkler. Each pack comes complete with a recipe card and mixing instructions. Done and done.
Or maybe you just need a host or hostess gift to bring to a holiday party? Shopkeeper Susan Baldaserini knows just what you need: "We think bubbles are always a good idea. We've got a nice line up of pet nats (both domestic and French), and some stellar French sparklers—both from the Champagne region and some fun(ky) options from Savoie and the Jura."
Reed Street Bottle Shop is located at 34 Reed Street in Coxsackie, NY, (518) 731-6326. Please check their website for their tasting calendar and their hours, and follow the shop on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
