Extra Cuervo Reserves for the Holidays

Everybody becomes inundated with interchangeable liquor presents for the holidays, so it's tough to make your boozy gift stand out without looking like a pretentious boob. Separate yourself from the scotch/wine-gifting hordes and keep it real by offering up Jose Cuervo's fine tequilas.

Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia: Until 1995 this award-winning Cuervo was only available to the distiller's family, friends, and shockingly loyal housekeepers. Each hand-blown bottle holds 100% agave tequila that's been aged in oak barrels and mixed with 30-year-old batches. Best served in a snifter, or even on the rocks with a twist, it's a drink to be savored like a fine brandy, and only to be given to those who matter most -- not the people who you quietly wish illness upon.

Perfect for:Your father, favorite uncle, newly canonized saints, you

Jose Cuervo Tradicional: Rested in oak barrels for an authentic, smooth taste, the award-winning Jose Cuervo Tradicional is the #1 100% agave reposado tequila in Mexico. Its flavor, much like Ted Williams, springs to life after it's been placed in the freezer, but unlike Ted, should be sipped as a frozen shot. All those celebrating or lamenting this holiday season will surely be thankful for this one gift they'll keep enjoying once the piles of socks and sweaters get sifted through.

Perfect for:Your boss who looks the other way, your new brother-in-law coping with your insane sister, first-time parents desperate for a delicious break from mountains of soiled diapers.

To spare you the trip into a dusty Mexican cellar, Jose Cuervo has made getting one of these easy -- all that's left for you to do is decide which person in your life deserves it the most. Save the wine and scotch this year for the people you secretly despise.

Drink responsibly or this holiday could be your last.
