Season’s Sippings

Spread some real cheer at holiday parties with these local drink options.

Heinen’s Growlers

The Brewer's Table at Heinen's offers the chance to enjoy draft-only craft beers from area brewers such as Buckeye Brewing Co. and Thirsty Dog at home. "You can find these little jewels and treasures that evolve and change frequently," says Heinen's wine and beer buyer Ed Thompkins. Like fine wine, craft beers pair well with food, and growlers are perfect for sharing. $3 growler, $8-$20 for fill-ups, available at Avon, Bainbridge, Brecksville, Mayfield Village, Rocky River and Strongsville locations.

Beach Blonde mix

Try it with equal parts Malibu cranberry/cherry rum and a splash of cranberry, says Budapest Blonde owner and North Royalton resident Ilona Simon. "People are always buying cranberries around the holidays and never know what to do with them. They make a cool garnish for this drink," she says. "It's very fun and pretty." $6.99, sold at Buehler's, Heinen's and various independent liquor stores.
