You know when you think of a great gift idea and not only do you need to jump on it, but also you need to share it with the world?
My boyfriend Ben’s birthday is this week and while it is already hard enough to think of Christmas presents for dudes, it’s also hard when someone’s bday falls so close to Christmas.
He LOVES Old-Fashioned cocktails (who doesn’t?) and usually orders one when we go out. Well, I thought – why not bring him the necessary tools to make a custom Old Fashioned at home? This is a great last-minute gift idea you can tailor to anyone on your list. For example, get them all the ingredients for a French 75, an Arnold Palmer, or any other specialty cocktail that your friend may not have all the ingredients on hand for .
For Ben’s Old-Fashioned Cocktail Kit I included the following:
- Sealed Jar of Brown Sugar
- Decent Bourbon (Jefferson’s)
- An Orange
- Woodford Reserve Cherries (ordered online, just go to the store for Maraschino cherries if you’re in a rush!)
- Cocktail bitters
Ben had the necessary ice cube makers and nice rocks glasses already, but consider if your friend may need a little something extra in their basket!
