Spirits
(From left to right)

USA | Snap liqueur $30; hitimewine.net
This aromatic mo-lasses cordial from Pennsylvania evokes freshly baked gingersnaps. Drink alone or mix with aged rum and top with ginger beer.

Mexico | Casa Dragones Tequila $275; wallywine.com
This blue-agave-based sipping tequila, laced with añejo that's spent five years in oak barrels, is bright and fruity at the outset and vanilla- and pepper-tinged at the finish.

Peru | Encanto Pisco $36; caskstore.com
A blend of three grapes, this clean, mellow pisco has loads more complexity than the firewater gathering dust at your liquor store. Make a pisco sour with it or nurse it neat, like the fine brandy it is.

France | Paul-Marie & Fils Tres Vieux Pineau des Charentes $90; leduwines.com
This slightly sweet fortified wine from the Cognac region is aged for 25 years, giving it the richness of vintage champagne. Serve it chilled as a dessert wine.
