The Perfect Holiday Gift and Drink


It’s no surprise I love a good drink during the Holidays so today’s post is coming to you thanks to La Croix and their awesome Holiday Variety Pack – can you say yum!?


I have to say, buying presents for your family is sometimes hard. After the 30+ years of knowing them AND buying Holiday and birthday presents it sometimes feels like you have given every single gift known to man. Well, enter La Croix! Thanks to La Croix I found the most perfect present for my sister-in-law, Kristin, and we found some great drinks to make during our Christmas celebration this weekend! Oh and this whole pack is $7.50 YES FOLKS, it’s $7.50! It’s a no brainer for a gift AND you can get it at your local Chicagoland Mariano’s!!

(PS…I was trying a few new things with my DSL camera and I might have had an epic fail. Sorry guys! I’m still learning but I promise I’m working on getting better!!)

Our family likes to have fun! Ok, wait, that’s a total and complete understatement…our family like to PARTY and when I say party I specifically mean drinking. We can probably drink your family under the table (we are Irish and German after all) and our Christmas celebrations usually go into the wee hours of the morning drinking anything and everything from my parents bar. The majority of us have hangovers in the morning (a sign of a good time not bad choices!) but we always walk away with the best memories of that year’s celebration.







Besides playing all different types of games, we love making different kinds of drinks and thanks to the La Croix Holiday Variety Pack, we never ran out of drink ideas this year! I’ve shared some of mine and my sister-in-laws favorite drinks to make with the La Croix Holiday Variety Pack and we hope you make them at your next family get together!
