What makes the holidays more enjoyable than a glass of good wine with dinner? And before dinner? And after dinner? And maybe after, after dinner?
The great thing about the holidays isn’t simply that they bring people together on their own, but that they inspire us to partake in food and libations that are prone to facilitating that togetherness. There are a lot of organic ways to have a little liquid fun this holiday season, with everything from organic wine to organic gin being available at most local stores.
Organic wine is really one of those little extras that you can do for the holidays, and since it is such an extraneous addition I think it’s worth the extra money. The great thing about organic wines is that they are much less expensive than they used to be, and it’s definitely possible to find a couple great varieties that won’t put you in the poor house. Organic spirits may cost you a little more than the wine, but that can vary wildly from place to place.
Keep in mind that you may be able to get a better deal on organic wines if you buy them online. Some states have strict restrictions on whether people can have alcohol mailed to them, so you’ll need to look into your local laws to see if it’s even possible. If you find that it is legal to have alcohol shipped to you where you live, it would be smart to get some investment from other people that will be at your get-together. This is because buying in bulk will generally save you money, and getting others to pitch in will make sure you all pay a decent rate.
There are a lot of ways that we can all act more environmentally responsible during the holidays. While the holidays may be a time where we let ourselves forget about our waistlines for a month, they don’t have to be a time during which we abdicate our responsibility to care for the Earth.
