DIY Cocktail Infusion Kits

for fun cocktails and mocktails

Need an easy and inexpensive gift for the holiday season? We are loving these DIY cocktail infusion kits. We’ve got something for every taste profile and if you don’t drink alcohol these are just as delicious as mocktails! Just add water instead of spirits.


16 oz. Mason Jars
Dehydrated Fruits and Spices

The Process

The process is extremely easy. Dry fresh fruit in a dehydrator or you can use the oven like we did here. Add a combination of fruit and spice to a mason jar. Include a tag with instructions, tie a bow and voila – you have a gift for everyone on your list. All they need to do is add their favorite spirit or water and let it steep for 3 days. You can even include a small bottle of the appropriate liquor.
