Love a craft cocktail? Know someone who does?  Let me introduce you to my favorite new gift idea: The Bittermilk Jar Bar.  

This set complete with creative mixers and mason jar shaker is the perfect complement to your at-home bar.  My sister gave it to me for my birthday and I’ve been going through the mixers one by one and have been delighted with each one!

I may have a future in Mixology.  Or is that the Bittermilk talking?

"Bittermilk mixers are made for cocktail enthusiasts by bartenders with real ingredients.  By hand.  In the good ol’ South.  (Charleston, SC to be exact.)  As a southerner and a foodie, myself, that combo is a winner!"

Bittermilk mixers are made for cocktail enthusiasts by bartenders with real ingredients.  By hand.  In the good ol’ South.  (Charleston, SC to be exact.)  As a southerner and a foodie, myself, that combo is a winner!

My favorite combination thus far?  Equal amounts of No. 5 Bittermilk Charred Grapefruit Tonic and Vodka over ice, then fill ‘er up with Grapefruit Sparkling Water.  Perfection.

Next up on my list to try is the No. 6 Oaxacan Old Fashioned. Pronounced “weh-HAH-ken, it’s recommended to mix this with a hit of mezcal and lime.  Fiesta anyone?

The set comes with six mixers and a four-piece shaker that allows you to measure, shake and strain right from the jar.  And who doesn’t love a mason jar?

Don’t tell anybody, but I’ll be buying several for my guy-relatives this Christmas.  Then, I’ll be inviting myself over to their place!
