The holidays are here, and with so many holiday parties on the horizon, it’s easy to leave the drinks to the last minute! Let me help you find all the best drinks to serve to all your guests this holiday season!
Redd's Apple Ale
Beer is in the midst of a renaissance. Consumers have larger and more specialized selections, they care more about food and beer pairings, and beer connoisseurs are on the rise. What‘s a person who is a non-beer drinker to do? One solution is to start with refreshing beers that are easy to drink and offer a little extra flavor.
An excellent beverage to serve for non-beer drinkers this holiday season is Redd’s Apple Ale, an apple-flavored beer at five percent alcohol per volume with low malt and bitterness cues. This gives it a crisp, clean finish and allows the natural apple flavor to come through for a perfectly balanced sweet and refreshing taste. Crisp like an apple, brewed like a beer, Redd’s Apple Ale is the perfect holiday gift as it is also available in Strawberry and Green Apple flavors at retailers nationwide.
Redd’s is a beer, not a cider. A cider is made using fermented apples juice (similar to wine). Beers are brewed.
Redd’s Apple Ale is available in 6 and 12-pack bottles, 12-pack cans and 16 ounce single serve cans at 5 percent alcohol by volume and only has 165 calories per 12 ounce bottle serving. Redd’s Apple Ale is available in three different flavors: apple (the original), strawberry and green apple

Crystal Head Vodka
Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander wanted to craft a vessel worthy of one of the world’s purest vodkas. A symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment, to hold their award-winning white spirit of super natural purity. High quality peaches and cream corn and the pristine waters of Newfoundland are used to produce Crystal Head.
Crystal Head contains no additives. No glycerol, citrus oils or sugars. Nothing is added to enhance or mask the taste. The vodka is distilled 4 times then filtered 7 times, of which 3 are through semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds.
The result is a naturally smooth, ultra-premium vodka, held in a bottle designed by world-renowned artist John Alexander.
You can purchase Crystal Head Vodka at a local spirits retailer
