Let’s face it, we can always find an excuse to raise a glass of cheer.

Whether you are celebrating an upcoming wedding, new baby, promotion, Teacher Appreciation Day or simply the fact that the weekend has arrived, here are a few stylish ways to enjoy the perfect toast.

For the pinot noir lover, Copper Cane Wines offers a fabulous selection from California, including Belle Glos. The distinctive region provides an ideal climate for wine growing with its combination of soil type, sunlight, and varying amount of fog. The Belle Glos 2022 Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir boasts a deep purple color with aromas of warm blackberry pie, raspberry, licorice, and white pepper. The velvety texture is finished off with hints of dry cherry, crushed lavender and chocolate covered blueberries.

For the free-spirited wine connoisseur, be sure to check out Planeta’s Frappato DOC Vittoria. The Sicilian grape produces a rare wine since there are less than 2,000 acres of Frappato planted worldwide, with most of that acreage located in Sicily. Tasting notes of the cherry-colored wine include hints of white pepper and tobacco along with red fruit.

With so many Hollywood actors and musicians looking to create their own celebrity-backed wine and spirits, we knew it was only a matter of time before Grammy-nominated Jeremih would come up with his own creation. Inspired by his chart-topping debut hit single, “Birthday Sex,” the wine with the same name is a collaboration between the artist and Napa Valley/Sonoma winemaker Russell Bevan. Described as a “naked” Chardonnay with risqué bottle design, the light yet flavorful wine features a delicious combination of oak nuances and fruit flavors.

The folks at Glasvin know just how important glassware is when it comes to elevating a wine sipping experience. Popular picks from their handblown glassware sets include The Champagne designed for sipping bubbly or sparkling wine, The Prestige created for red wines, and, our favorite, The Obsession, a Burgundy-style glass designed to maximize aromas.

If you prefer cocktails over a glass of vino, the folks at Bark & Barware have a fun Premium Smokeshow Cocktail Smoker Kit with Torch that is perfect for entertaining. Whether you are looking for a host or hostess gift or simply want to treat yourself, the set arrives in a natural wood box and contains silver tools and six different flavors of wood chips. The whiskey smoker set includes a smoker kit with torch where you can create your own smoking cocktail while the aged and charred bourbon smoker kit provides a smoky flavor with every easy creation.

Another favorite for spirits lover is Mijenta, an additive-free, sustainable tequila, that just introduced their newest limited-edition expression, Cristalino. The latest launch features notes of maple, caramel, coffee, coconut, toffee, and fruity hints of citrus and honey combined with cooked agave for a smooth taste.
