VANCOUVER -- It is the time of year to get in to the holiday spirit and to get all the gifts ready for under the tree.

On CTV Morning Live, Krissy Vann travelled to the Signature BC Liquor Store at 39th and Cambie to learn about some holiday favourites.

The top picks were:

  • Dalmore Principal Collection 12-Year-Old Luxury Gift Set
  • Aperol Bespoke Glass Holiday Gift Pack
  • Macallan Sherry Oak 12-Year-Old (BCL Select)
  • Adictivo Tequila Extra Anejo

Category manager Kim Giesbrecht joined the show to highlight top wine gifts in a variety of price points.

For those that are looking to gift something with a more personal touch, award-winning bartender David Wolowidnyk joined the show with an idea.

Wolowidnyk suggested creating a batch cocktail. He created the Vancouver Cocktail on CTV Morning Live.

This cocktail uses Long Table London Dry Gin, Martini Rosso and Benedictine B and B.

On the show Wolowidnyk shared the fascinating local history of the drink.
