Twin Liquors

Talk about entertaining made easy! In each Cocktail Combo Pack you will find two products conveniently packaged together to help you create unique and inspiring cocktails. Try something new or just stock up on the essential spirits of your favorite cocktails.

The Cadillac Margarita Cocktail Combo Pack for $39.99 includes 375 ml of Don Julio Blanco tequila and 375 ml of Grand Marnier liqueur. Need the recipe? Shake 2 oz. tequila, 1 oz, Grand Marnier, and 2-3 oz. fresh lime juice with ice. Strain over fresh ice in a festive glass with an optional salted rim, then garnish with lime wheel and start drinking!

Nine Banded Whiskey

Looking for the perfect gift for the bourbon lover in your life? Nine Banded Whiskey's Wheated Bourbon is crafted from a unique blend of wheat, corn, and malted barley and is brought to life with limestone-filtered water from the Texas Hill Country. It’s smooth. It’s real. And that's worth raising your glass.


Give the gift of home improvement this holiday season with a Brixos gift card. Gift cards can be used toward any project request, from handyman work to remodeling to even hanging Christmas lights. Brixos works closely with homeowners on the design of their space, then manages the work from start to finish. All you have to do is approve your project plans and enjoy the results. Big or small, Brixos can do it for you.

Austin Cocktails

Lift your spirits with this season’s coolest line of sparkling canned cocktails, brought to you by two sisters out of Austin. At 12.5 % ABV, the cocktails are made in small batches with real spirits, real ingredients, and a splash of seltzer water. The drinks are low carb and easy to crack open anytime. They also make the perfect host gift and are a safe single-serve cocktail for your holiday festivities. So while you can forget the cocktail prep, you can also remember you are supporting small business. Available in Cucumber Vodka Sparkling Mojito, Ruby Red Sparkling Cocktail, and Bergamot Orange Sparkling Margarita at Twin Liquors, Spec's, and Alamo City Liquor.
