That's the Spirit

In a season normally filled with celebratory causes to raise a glass, we also have some not-so-jubilant reasons to pour ourselves a drink this year. For better or worse — and perhaps predictably and understandably — Americans have been drinking more in 2020. If you know someone who's safely and responsibly using the occasional cocktail to get through, well, life right now, here are some gifts that can ensure they do so in style, like Don Draper from the show "Mad Men." Cheers!
