OUR TIPS FOR A HOMEMADE BLOODY MARY GIFT BASKET

We are in the midst of the season of sharing and spreading love. And here at Demitri’s, we don’t know a better way to show some love than with the gift of drink.

A homemade Bloody Mary gift basket is a fun, creative, and useful gift for any drink-lover on your list. 

We know that the gift idea is the easy part. But actually executing it? Well, that can be tough—especially with homemade ideas. 

If you’re wondering what exactly would go into your DIY gift basket, we’ve got you covered. Follow our expert tips below for the ultimate Bloody Mary Basket. 

Demitri’s Homemade Bloody Mary Basket Checklist. 

  1. Vodka

A Bloody Mary is only as potent as its liquor. And if you want to make an impression, you should shop one of the following:

Remember that most vodka brands are already laced with unique flavors. You should prioritize brands that aren’t pre-flavored so that it can blend well with any Bloody Mary recipe or mix. 

  1. Mason Jar

While Bloody Mary’s can be served in a glass of any shape and size, the mason jar is the coolest way to enjoy one. Find fun mason jar to include in your gift basket—you could even go so far as to customize it with stickers or paint! 

Try including a large mason jar mixing, and smaller jars for serving. 

  1. Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings

No Bloody Mary gift basket is every complete with a Bloody Mary seasoning from Demitri’s. Whether you choose a classic recipe or go for the more complex Chilies and Peppers, Chipotle Habanero, or Extra Horseradish sauce, you can never go wrong. 

  1. Snacks

Bloody Mary’s on an empty stomach? Now that’s no fun. Fill up your basket with the recipient’s favorite snacks sure to fuel the drunchies. You can put the snacks in the mason jars for added flair. Curious as to what food pairs best with Bloodys? Check out this blog from Stu’s Kitchen.

  1. Garnish

Everyone’s already used to the usual celery stick or onion Bloody Mary garnish. Boring! Why not add some inspiration to your Bloody Mary gift basket, and give a garnish to remember?

Try incorporating crab cake, jalapeno, pizza, sausages, olives, and more! 

  1. Include a note

To top it all off, your DIY Bloody Mary gift basket needs a personal touch. Include a hand-made note or drinks-themed card. Bonus points if you end the note with “I Bloody Love You.” Don’t worry, you can copy us. We won’t tell.

Voila! You did it! Now tie these fillings neat with a bow and watch the recipient’s eyes light up with joy. Maybe giving really is the best part of the holidays.
