Quick Last Minute Gifts
Updated: Mar 5
So, what fun things do you have planned for the longest night of the year? Last year we had a jolly old time making Reindeer Root Beer for friends and neighbors.
All it takes is googly eyes, red pom poms attached with a hot glue gun and dark brown pipe cleaners to twist on top of the bottle. Then we enclose a message: We’re “rootn” that you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”
We could not resist dressing the winter ale bottles to bring as hostess gifts.They are always a big hit!
