You may think of Wigle as whiskey only, but the distillery has a range of spirits for the holidays. So if you still need a last-minute gift (or just want some for yourself), here are six holiday spirits to try. Plus, impress your friends and family with these two cocktail recipes using grappa aka a spirit that is made from grape pomace (what’s left when you squeeze the fruit to make wine).
Basically, it's best to stay inside this morning and into the early afternoon. Pittsburgh will be under a winter storm warning until 1 p.m., which means “significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected or occurring. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.” P.S. Did you know you can tweet questions at the National Weather Service Pittsburgh and they'll answer? Get the latest tweets from the NWS here.
