For those of you who can’t wait for Christmas, we’ve got something that’s going to knock your socks off (literally).
We’ve seen a lot of advent calendars, from using the traditional piece of chocolate to count down the days until Christmas, to even slices of cheese (yum!). But a new Tequila Advent Calendar by Drinks By The Dram is giving all other advent calendars a run for its money.
Honestly, the lead-up to the holidays can be a little stressful (hello, last-minute gifts, attempting to find the best ugly holiday sweater, and trying not to eat all the cookies at the holiday party). And this is the perfect way to take the edge off.
As you might’ve guessed, the Tequila Advent Calendar hides a 30-ml bottle of tequila behind each number of days in December instead of your average piece of candy. So every day leading up to the holiday literally feels like Christmas morning (err, well, Christmas evening, perhaps).The best part about this advent calendar is that you won’t be finding any cheap, standard tequilas. Drinks by the Dram is known for their upscale aste in alcohol, and this advent calendar is no different.
