Last-Minute Twin Cities Food Holiday Gifts


Published:

This just arrived in the office—looks like somebody's father-in-law will be making out quite nicely this year. If you haven't yet ordered your Northern Waters Smokehaus smoked fish, smoked meats, and salumi you may need to make a trip to Duluth. Here are a few quick ideas, alcoholic and sweet, for last-minute holiday shopping:

45th Parallel Vodka, Bourbon, or Limoncello
Slip one of these Wisconsin-made spirts into a stocking—or leave it with the cookies for Santa.

Phillips Ginka
Minnesota's family run spirits company just released this "happy blend" of vodka and gin—useful for making James Bond's famous Vesper.

Minnesota Breweries' Winter Beers
DeRusha suggested a few great options. Lift Bridge Brewing's Biscotti? A Belgian ale with the slight sweetness of the Italian cookie? Delicious!

Craftmade Toffee
Handmade artisan toffee. New flavors—Mexican quicos, chai, Thai chili-lime—coming out all the time.

St. Croix Chocolates
This tiny Marine on St. Croix chocolate shop makes some of the most indulgent—and gorgeous!—truffles and bars in the metro.
