How do you shop for gifts? Are you a mall shopper? An onine shopper? Do you prefer boutiques to national chains? Maybe you are a crafter, an artist or a builder? Me? I prefer homemade gifts, to give out and to receive. But not everyone has a sweet tooth or wants a box of cookies or chocolates. So, what do you do?

Here’s a great gift idea for the bar keep that you know and love.

Pomegranate Infused Vodka Detail

This is something the hubby and I started last year with our influx of pomegranates. We soaked pomegranate arils in vodka for two weeks, then filtered out the fruit. Super easy. Fruity flavor. Gorgeous color.

You can also do this with plums, lemons, oranges and many other types of fruit. If you like to spice it up, add some cloves or cinnamon sticks.

Labels for Pomegranate Vodka by FamilySpice.com

The labels I made were inspired by Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites. He used pre-cut Avery labels. I made my tags myself. It all depends on how crafty you are feeling.
