Last-Minute DIY Holiday Food Gifts

BlogHer Original Post

Even as winter's chill descends upon us, there's still plenty of DIY gifts you can concoct in time for the big holiday. Here's a few ideas for gifts, some of which can be whipped up in mere minutes.


Infusions and Liqueurs
There's just enough time to get a nice limoncello started; they'll need to let it age in the bottle a little past Christmas, so think of it as the gift that keeps on giving. Think outside the box of lemons! Try it with other citrus, like my favorite, grapefruit for a pompelmocello.

For something a little different, try this milk liqueur. Lemon causes the milk solids to curdle, which when strained out leave a sweet liqueur with an amazingly rich mouthfeel.

Got some serious cocktailians on your list? Whip up a batch or two of your own bitters. You can be sure you'll be rewarded with a very special tipple.
