If you're anything like me you have a gift list for Christmas that's a mile long and a bank account that's about half a mile short!  To solve my holiday gift giving insolvency I make a lot of my gifts.

In the days before I became The Martini Diva I did what a lot of people do and made cookies, but being the "Normal Challenged Artist" that I am I had to do them a little differently.  I made what I call my Pop Art Diva Cookies and gave those out to a large part of my list. People loved them but they are a ton of work and I just don't have the time to make them anymore.

When I started doing vodka and liqueur infusions and publishing articles on them I realized I had the perfect, easy replacement for the now famous "Pop Art Diva Cookies", home made liqueurs and infusions.  I also make a lot of my own cocktail rimmers and salts and these are ideal are gifts by themselves or in tandem with a homemade liqueur!

As several of the liquor infusions take some time to distill you want to get on them soon. If you start your infusions right now they will all be ready just in time for your holiday gifting or for your own holiday parties!

You will want to get some pretty, decorative bottlesfor your creations, some ribbons and some customizable holiday labels for them, read my articles, gather your ingredients and tools and then you're ready to start brewing away for the holidays!

Here are my recipes for several popular liqueurs, flavored salts & sugars and my special Candied Nutz recipe as well.  All of these make wonderful, tasty and original Christmas and holiday gifts for friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.  Make a few extra for hostess gifts and spares for the person(s) you forgot to put on your original gift list!!
