December is upon us and it’s a frenzy of gift giving and holiday parties! If there’s one thing my mom taught me, it’s that you should never arrive to a party empty handed – and to ditch the go-to supermarket flowers. I want to share with you the easiest DIY hostess gift. The Moscow Mule Gift Basket!
Gift baskets are everywhere during the holidays, but why buy one when you can make one for cheaper? And I guarantee it will be so much cuter! Wait until I show you how easy it was to throw together this Moscow Mule gift basket by shopping at only BevMo!
Moscow Mule Gift Basket: How to Make The Basket
Nothing goes hand in hand quite like Moscow Mules and the holidays. I don’t know if it’s the seasonal ginger flavor, but when the temps dip down, I am always craving one of these signature cold drinks. And whipping up one of these cocktails could not be any simpler. That’s why it makes for the perfect hostess gift.
Creating this Moscow Mule gift basket was so easy. I found everything I needed at BevMo!, lime included! They even had a great assortment of copper mugs to choose from. Because drinking this ginger concoction only seems appropriate when done out of copper mugs! I chose these beautiful hammered cups that came in a set of 2 for under $20 – perfect!
Why Are Moscow Mules Served in Copper Cups?
You must be wondering why Moscow Mules are served in copper mugs. The answer has to do with keeping the beverage extra cold and the icy sensation that the copper has when it reaches your lips. You can read more here from HomeWetBar.com.
