Corks? Corkscrews? Decanters? So last millennium. Stacked Wines ($15) does away with all of those — and the traditional wine glass — by packaging 750ml of fruity, sunshine-ready wine in four individual stemless glasses, allowing the package to mimic a traditional bottle of wine — and take up a similar amount of space — while removing the need for any tools, accessories, or extra glassware.

We've seen plenty of trends, styles, and drinks reemerge years after they were first popular, but none quite as old as mead. A modern take on the ancient drink, HoneyMaker Mead ($TBA) is still made from honey, clear, pure water and a proprietary yeast strain, but is available in a variety of flavors, including Lavender, Blueberry, Semi Sweet, Dry Hopped, and the ever popular Elderberry. Gold chalice not included, but highly recommended.
Feeling a little less than chipper after last night's drinking escapades? Start your recovery off right with some Charleston Bloody Mary Mix ($10). Available in Original and Bold & Spicy varieties, these tasty mixes include a number of premium Lowcountry ingredients, including Worcestershire, sea salt, ground peppercorn, tarragon, thyme, rice vinegar, habanero mash, and celery seed. Just add vodka.
If the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup, consider spoiling yourself with a Wrecking Ball Coffee Subscription ($115). This high-end, six-month subscription provides you with a new 12 oz. bag of freshly-roasted beans each month, letting you savor whatever flavor the merry band of coffee-roasting geeks at Wrecking Ball are most enjoying at the moment.
It's not hard to find a place to get a bloody mary, but finding a good one? A far more difficult task. Apparently, so did the guys at Stu's, who you might know from their Spicy Garlic Pickles. The result is Stu's This Is Bloody Mary ($8). This powerful seasoning is designed to be used in concert with tomato juice and vodka to create a bold, flavorful drink that will send your celery stalk running for cover.
