It’s not too early to start thinking about holiday gifts. One that you’ll want to keep on your radar is the three-bottle gift pack of grape-based mixers from Stolen Fruit. The Sonoma-based company launched just a few months ago with five different alcohol-free blends, for both cocktails and mocktails, made with a blend of verjus—the fresh-pressed juice from green grapes—varietal grape juice and grape skins. The holiday pack ($54) includes Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc; Blood Orange Muscat; and Hibiscus Grenache.

Stolen Fruit makes mixology foolproof and delicious. For a sophisticated non-alohcohlic beverage, simply combine 2 ounces of the mixer with 6 ounces of sparkling water, stir and, if you’d like, garnish with a wedge of orange, lime or grapefruit for a garnish. For a spiked version, reduce the sparkling water to 4 ounces and add 2 ounces of your favorite spirit. Stolen Fruit makes both wine lovers and craft-cocktail aficionados happy. Adding to their versatility, the mixers are food friendly, pairing beautifully with every type of cuisine, from teriyaki salmon to grilled ribeye. stolenfruit.com

This is the kind of cocktail you don’t want to attempt to reproduce at home. To create that rosemary mint foam you will need both a nitrous-oxide whipper and an eyedropper (to dispense precisely two drops of rosemary essential oil). It’s the type of complex specialty drink you can find only at specialty bars, in this case the newcomer Mezcal Bar, which is tucked behind a curtain at the West Hollywood restaurant Laurel Hardware, and features nearly 100 different Mezcals sourced from more than 50 distillers.
