We have exciting news! Tomorrow morning [Saturday December 19th] we will be joining Rena Sarigianopoulos on KARE11 at 8:45 a.m. to share a few fun and easy holiday hostess gifts wrapped in simple yet meaningful ways. You don’t want to miss all the fun things we have up our sleeves tomorrow morning! In the meantime, we wanted to share with you our favorite hostess gift this season…

A nice candle or flowers are always appreciated by a hostess, but what if you could gift something super thoughtful and useful? … and absolutely yummy? Yes, Please!

Heidi over at Foodie Crush concocted the perfect pickle-infused vodka. Why so perfect, you ask? Because not only does it look pretty in a lovely container, but it can be used in this amazing Bloody Mary recipe the morning after.


Pickle Infused Vodka:

  • 3 parts vodka [1.5 cups]
  • 1 parts pickle juice [1/2 cup] – use any kind of pickles you like!
  • A few pickle spears and vegetables [carrots and red peppers]

In a stylish container, [We like these from Weck or these from Ikea!] Combine the pickle juice with the vodka and gently mix them together. Add a pickle spear or two and a few vegetable pieces.  Place the bottle[s] in a cool, dark place for 3 days. Chill in the fridge a few hours before your event.

Before heading out the door, wrap a piece of twine casually around the neck of the bottle a few times and add a pretty gift tag! As you hand over your gift, remind her to use it in her Bloody Mary in the morning!

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow morning at 8:45 on KARE11 to see other great ideas for gifting holiday hostesses!
