Gifts to DIY & Gifts to Buy: For the Home Bartender

Not everyone has the time or inclination to make gifts, so in the ramp-up to the holidays this year I decided to do a gift guide with both gifts to buy and gifts to DIY. Since drinks are on my mind after posting about infused alcohols yesterday, I’m starting with ideas for the home bartender, that person in your life who loves to mix up fancy concoctions. Really, though, these would be good for pretty much anyone who drinks alcohol. For example, I always have trouble shopping for the men in my life, but I’m pretty sure they’d all appreciate booze-related gifts. Whether you buy or DIY, this gift-guide for the mixologist has you covered.
