moscow mule gift kit | www.prettyplainjanes.comYou know those people who always give such fabulous gifts?  Packaged perfectly and filled with things you didn’t know you wanted yet love.  My mom is that person.  Year after year she manages to put together the most thoughtful gift sets that are impossible not to feel special receiving.  A particular favorite would be her cocktail kits.  A fun container filled with everything you need to make one heck of a drink.  This year I decided to have a go at it.  Say hello to the “Moscow Mule kit”.

Items you will need:

  • ginger beer
  • vodka
  • lime
  • Moscow Mule mug (found here, here or here)
  • container large enough to hold all items (TJ Maxx and Home Goods are good stores to check out for boxes)
  • newspaper

Fill the bottom of container with newspaper and place items on top in a visually pleasing fashion.  The recipe for a Moscow Mule could not be simpler (squeeze lime, pour vodka over ice and top with ginger beer).  And because this is the gift giving season here is a free printable of the recipe just for you!

    I’m hoping that I have friends or relatives who read your blog and notice just how neat I think this gift is ;-)
    Can you tell me where you found your ginger beer?

      Hi Cindy! We found the ginger beer local at Collins Fine Foods! But I am sure any specialty beer carrier will have some. Hope you receive a cocktail kit. ;) – brandy j

      Hope you enjoyed it Cindy! Some people us simple syrup to sweeten it – we found it was light and refreshing without it though. :) – brandy j
