I'm sure you'd agree that alcohol is always a welcome hostess gift, no? I love looking for alternatives to the classic standby of wine, though. This mint infused bourbon is super easy, and still has that homemade touch that proves you put some thought behind it. Even better, it comes with cute free printable labels. This is just a starting point, as the combinations are literally endless. I'm intrigued by the idea of using herbs or vanilla, and maybe a more neutral spirit, like vodka. Head over to House of Earnest for the how-to and downloadable labels!
