Want to be everyone’s favourite house guest this Summer?!
If you’ve ever thrown a party of your own, you know just how much work it takes to prepare all the food, get the house cleaned, and stocking up the fridge and bar with plenty of refreshments in time for your friends to arrive. Well, on your next invite to a BBQ or house party, make sure you bring the hostess (or host) a little gift of thanks, so that they too, can sit back, enjoy an iced-cold adult beverage and have a good time!
This DIY Summer Cocktail Hostess Basket, packed with the youthful taste of Henry’s Hard Soda accompanied by cocktail accessories, is just the way to help the hostess kick it up a notch! Is also acts as a great reminder that even though (some of us, me!) are way past our twenties and much prefer to host lunch time BBQs over wild nights out, doesn’t mean our parties have to be boring and dull!
Henry’s Hard Soda is all new to Canada, made with real cane sugar are available in both orange and grape soda flavours. They are the perfect party companion to spike up (ABV: 4.2%) your favourite classic Summer time beverage or dessert recipes with an adult punch (think orange soda ice-cream floats, and grape flavoured ice-pops or granitas!).
For this simple DIY gift basket, I picked up some outdoor entertaining must-haves such as a picnic basket, outdoor blanket, plastic drinkware, a large sized drink dispenser, and cocktail accessories. I then filled the drink dispenser with bottles of Henry’s Hard Soda and a few fun hand written cocktail recipe cards! I was also able to grab a small bouquet of edible flowers that are both fantastic as home decor and cocktail garnish.
The next time you’re tempted to bring over a bottle of wine, swap that idea out with this beautifully curated gift basket for your friends. I guarantee that you’ll be the talk of town and plus, these bright coloured adult sodas are just that much more festive and fun! After all, we all want to live life hard-ish, am I right?
