How to Bottle Your Own Cocktails

Written by Becky

Josh and I have a new favorite thing – bottling cocktails. Its easy… super easy and so fun to show up to a party or gathering with a box filled with bottles of our own concoction. Our latest potion was a Caramel Apple Cider Cocktails, made with top shelf ingredients from Liberty Heights Fresh and perfect for the Thanksgiving Holiday season (recipe to come tomorrow). These bottled cocktails will pretty much guarantee your status as the best party guest. Here are the steps for bottling your own holiday cocktails.

1. Gather materials: bottles (we use 6 ounce clear bottles – ask your local home-brewing store what they have available), caps and a big red bottle bottle capper (you can find these a stores that sell beer making kits). You will also need something to mix your cocktail in (we used a large jar) and a cocktail spoon, as well as a strainer (any kind will do) and a small flask funnel or something you can use to pour the drink into the bottle.

  1. Hey Becky! Does your local home brewing store have a website? I have found it very hard to find clear soda/beer bottles online that don’t have those expensive stoppers on them. Lots of amber, but no clear.

  2. Sorry, scratch that. I realized from doing some further searching that the little guys you have are called champagne bottles, and you’re right – I found some at my own local home brewing store online. 🙂 I can’t wait to try this myself!!!
