About Me
Keeping Employees Productive

Last year, I realized that a few of our employees did not have the best intentions when they came to work. It seemed like their goal was to slack off and avoid work, and it was really frustrating. I realized that I had to do something in order to make things right, so I started working with them to train them. I also installed a camera system and explained the consequences of their actions. Within about six months, we were able to completely overhaul things, and it made a huge difference. This blog is all about keeping employees productive and on track, so that you can keep your company viable.

Spruce Up Your Holiday Gifts: How To Create The Perfect Cocktail Gift Crates

Grace Hanson

With the holidays just around the corner, you've probably started making your gift lists. If that's the case, don't forget to include a few cocktail gift crates. If you're like most people, you don't think of cocktails when you envision holiday gift crates, but you should. Cocktails are the perfect way to spruce up a holiday gift crate. You do need to make sure that you get the ingredients right though. It's the extra ingredients that you add to the gift crates that sets them apart from all the rest. If you've decided to add cocktail gift crates to your holiday gift-giving list, here are four items you need to add to the crates. 


If you're going to give someone a cocktail gift crates this year, don't forget to add the recipes. Your friends and loved ones may enjoy an evening cocktail, but that doesn't mean they know how to mix them. If they do know how to mix a few of their favorite cocktails, they may be ready to try something new. Either way, adding a few cocktail recipes to their gift crates will provide them with the perfect opportunity to mix up a few different cocktails. Don't forget to include the ingredients to go with any of the recipes you place in the crates. 

Bar Tools

If a few of your friends and family members are going to get cocktail gift crates from you this year, make sure you include bar tools in the crates. Adding tools like jiggers, bar spoons, and Hawthorne strainers is the perfect way to complete your cocktail gift crates. To ensure a truly complete cocktail gift crate, don't forget to include a shaker. 


If you want to set your cocktail gift crates apart from all the rest, be sure to include plenty of garnishes with your gift. Garnishes add the finishing touch to any cocktail. Some garnishes to add to the crates include olives, maraschino cherries, and citrus fruit, as well as sugar and salts for the rims. It's also a good idea to add garnish picks to the crate. That way, the garnish assortment is complete. 


Finally, if you're going to give cocktail gift crates to your friends and family members this year, add a generous supply of appetizers. No cocktail gift crate is complete without an assortment of snacks and appetizers. Appetizer selections can include anything from mixed nuts to cheese and crackers.
