At just 50 milliliters a pop, liquor miniatures or mini-bottles (or whatever you like to call them) make for great stocking stuffers – regardless of whether you’re choosing something family members can indulge in later or want to surprise them with something perfect for tossing in their morning mimosa (or coffee) right then and there; it is the holidays, after all!
Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rosé
What better way to enjoy Christmas morning than with a mimosa?! Mini bottles of champagne or sparkling wine are a fun, easy route for any stocking stuffer. This one in particular by Martini & Rossi is extra sweet and flavorful; any rosé lover in your life will appreciate seeing one of these in their stocking this year!
Crystal Head Vodka
This popular vodka maintains its edge even in the mini version! This extremely clean vodka is made with no additives and the finest Newfoundland deep aquifer water. The cool skull bottle is undoubtedly the best part and looks even better in 50mL.
Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
Love it or hate it, Fireball continues to be a perennial crowd-pleaser. And although it may not be the first drink you want to see on Christmas morning, if it doesn’t get downed at some point throughout the day, your holiday probably wasn’t as festive as it could have been!
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Though it may be a bit aggressive for a Christmas morning coffee addition, this yummy blend of Caribbean Rums in a quaint old-fashioned jug-handled bottle looks great nonetheless! Buy this for your rum-loving friend – the spiced factor makes this one a definite winner, and a slight step above Bacardi. Serve in any of your favorite Rum-based cocktails.
For most of us, coffee is the first beverage you’ll seek on December 25. Therefore, this most-popular coffee-flavored liquor has you covered straight out of the stocking – whether you need something to add to your cup of joe or just want to get that coffee taste on your tongue!
Baileys Irish Cream
No miniature is better prepared to immediately go into action on Christmas morning than Baileys! Tried-and-true friend of the holiday morning coffee routine, this is a must for anyone’s stocking stuffer list.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel
It might be the most utilitarian choice, but you really can’t go wrong gifting a miniature of Jack Daniel’s; especially for your whiskey-loving friends and family. There are several options and variations of whiskey to get here, but sticking with the Single Barrel assures good flavor without breaking the bank.
This is the cream of the crop for any gin lovers you know – mostly because there aren’t too many gin brands that come in miniature size and this is probably the most common. We have seen a few miniature Hendricks out there, though!
This list wouldn’t be complete without at least one vodka on it! Grey Goose is the ultimate chic vodka, and the mini version makes for a fun holiday mixer with a splash of soda water or tonic and lime.
This light, fresh tequila is a favorite of tequila connoisseurs worldwide. It’s the perfect ingredient in your favorite Christmas Day margarita or tossed into your favorite holiday cocktail; it’s also delicious neat or on the rocks.
Sangria Lolea No. 1
This yummy artisanal (red or white) sangria is made with high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo red wines, fresh orange, and lemon juice, and a touch of cinnamon; not to mention they come in adorable 50mL bottles that are perfectly festive and ready to enjoy! Simply serve cold and drink up.
For those who consider an Irish coffee a bit much in the morning, maybe “Frenching up” your coffee is more your style. Grand Marnier is another one of those mini-bottles that scores bonus points for its recognizable packaging, and it’s still a pretty festive liquor to enjoy on a busy Christmas morning.
