GIFT IDEA: BAR KIT FOR HIM BY EMILY ALDER
One of my go-to gifts for my husband and father is a nice bottle of Irish Whiskey or Scotch. It’s something that I know they enjoy and something that can bring us all together around the table or in the hot tub.
While I love the idea of a simple go to gift, it’s nice to liven things up a bit so I recently put together a DIY Bar Kits that was a little more personalized. A nice Irish Whiskey (Tullamore Dew is Matts favorite), a flavored soda or syrup, ice mold, muddler, metal straws, and some fresh fruit to garnish it off.
Basically, a spinoff of the Moscow mule, this kit provides the majority of ingredients for a Irish Mule. Our Irish mule recipe usually goes a little like
2.5 oz. Irish Whiskey
Ginger Beer or Ginger Syrup with Soda Water
Juice from one lemon, lime, or tangerine
Stirred over ice
