Drinkhackers 2013 Holiday Gift Guide - Best Alcohol/Spirits for Christmas

Case Study Image

Back again by popular demand, it’s the Drinkhacker holiday gift guide — or our “best stuff of the year awards” if you want to go that route. As usual, this list is filtered through the lens of the holidays, designed to help you decide what you might buy for the loved ones on your shopping list, should they be whiskey, rum, tequila, or other spirits fans.

The offerings below are but a small selection of our favorite spirits from the last year, with an eye toward things you might actually be able to find on the market (no Pappy on this list… what would be the point?). Got alternatives to suggest or gift ideas you think we missed? Chime in in the comments, please!

Happy holidays to all of you! As always, thanks for reading the blog!

Have leftover brown sugar from all that Thanksgiving baking? Turn it into a sweet seasonal cocktail with Art in the Age’s Snap craft spirit. Cheers to the holidays!

Brown Sugar Snap Swizzle

1 part Snap
1 oz. brown sugar syrup
3 dashes orange bitters
2 oz. sparkling wine

To make the brown sugar syrup, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of brown sugar in a sauce pan over medium-high heat and stir to dissolve the sugar. Cover, remove from heat and let cool. Store in a glass bottle and refrigerate for up to two weeks.

To make the cocktail, combine all ingredients except the sparking wine and shake with ice cubes. Fine-strain into a chilled flute, top with sparkling wine and garnish with an orange twist.

Philly's 38 Best Independent Boutiques, Fall 2013

Case Study Image

It's now time to update the Indie 38, our annual list of the 38 best independent boutiques around the city. Like last time, to make number more manageable, we've excluded consignment and vintage shops and stores younger than six months old.

For today's list, we cleared Concrete Polish (reborn as Ritual Ritual), Franklin Square (closed), and Nice Things Handmade to make room for Mushmina, Art Star, and Hello World. Got an addition to the list—or a subtraction, for that matter? We'll be updating the map periodically, so let us know your thoughts in the comments section. You can also email us at


The only store in Philly with its own in-house line of liqueurs, woodsy-vibed Art in the Age supplies both genders with clothing and accessories from a mix of indie and American labels like Penfield, Steven Alan, and Woolrich.
