Sometimes it takes a Holiday “spirit” to get into the Holiday spirit, am I right? Even someone who has everything can appreciate a bottle of liquor. What makes it even better is having everything you need to complete the perfect cocktail including the: booze, mixers, glasses, and even the recipe card! I have included my budget saving secrets and some free recipe cards ready to print in a 5×7 size.
Moscow Mule- This is a popular cocktail made from vodka, ginger beer, and limes; and is traditionally served in copper cups.
You can use a crate, box, basket, or any container to build your masterpiece. Second-hand stores are a great place to find baskets and they can look brand new with a coat of spray paint. Simply arrange the ingredients with a bit of tissue paper and share the holiday “spirit”!
Here is what the recipe card looks like. You can use the 5×7 Moscow Mule PDF to print one for your basket.
Irish Mule- The Irish mule is exactly like the Moscow Mule, except you replace the vodka with Irish Whisky.

Wine Basket- A basket filled with crackers, salami, cheese, nuts, chocolate, wine, olives, a cheese board, a corkscrew and a bottle of wine.
You can use our 5×7 Wine-derful PDF to complete your gift basket.
Margarita Basket- The list wouldn’t be complete without a margarita basket, filled with traditional margarita glasses, rim salt, tequila, and lime! You could also include a lime squeezer or some cute ice cube trays.

Although I didn’t put together a gift baskets for the all-so-famous Cosmopolitan, I did put together a 5×7 Cosmopolitan PDF recipe card for you. The basket could contain: vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, lemons, martini glasses, a cocktail shaker, etc.
The best way to spread Holiday cheer, is giving a cocktail that isn’t just beer! (Although a beer basket with pretzels, peanuts, and some beer steins would be pretty darn fun too!)
Raise a glass and share some cheer(s)
