Groomsmen Gifts: Custom Cocktail Kits

Michael and I got a little crafty with the groomsmen gifts by making custom cocktail kits.  For the life of me, I can't seem to track down where I originally found the idea (which was on a blog, naturally), but we ended up doing two different cocktails.  One used citrus and vanilla-infused bourbon; while the other utilized bacon-infused whiskey.  The corresponding cocktail for the citrus-vanilla-infused bourbon was a Manhattan Bianco.  For the bacon-infused whiskey, we went with both an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan.

We used this tutorial for infusing the bourbon and this one for infusing the whiskey.

Once everything had infused, we funnelled all the necessary ingredients for each drink into bottles I ordered from the Sunburst Bottle Company.  We labeled them with custom tags and topped it off with fresh fruit and the relevant recipes.   So that the groomsmen would have a little something that they could keep even after the cocktails had been imbibed, we threw in monogrammed rocks glasses that I ordered from Gunther Gifts.
