For Christmas this year, a few lucky people got some homemade Kahlua! I was SO excited about this when I came across the post HERE! I literally picked up the things that day and made it. There’s nothing that I love better than really easy recipes for things you’d think were complicated. This recipe is so simple! I followed it exactly, since I’d never made it before, and though I haven’t tried it yet, it smells amazing! The bottles were actually root beer bottles that I had saved, and sanitized (in my dishwasher). My favorite thing about this gift was the way I packaged it all up!! It came out soooo adorable! I made the labels on PicMonkey (you can download them for free if you click the links that follow the picture! 🙂 ), and stuck it on with some striped washi tape. For the tops, I actually purchased them online last summer, because I wanted to make some strawberry wine (never did though!). I didn’t want to have to buy a corker, and then corks and anything else that would’ve been needed, so I looked around and found out that, though ugly, these little plastic corks were perfect for sealing a bottle for up to 2 years or something like that. I decorated them with an adhesive sheet of cork (that I purchased from Michaels in the the scrapbook paper section (I actually had some left over from when I made my vacation jar). I stamped a little heart on some paper, put it through my Xyron, and it went from ugly to adorable! To finish the bottles off, I wrote out a recipe for a White Russian, and tied it on with some bakers twine 🙂
