I have a good friend who moved away and is still sort of making her apartment a home. I’m thinking I want to get her liquor for a housewarming gift. What are the very basics that everyone should have? We’re young and we like mixed drinks, so I’ll be getting rum and vodka… and that’s where my creativity ends. Suggestions for different kinds of alcohol as well as things like shakers, glasses, mixes or whatever else you think is appropriate would be appreciated.
As for brands, I’m not looking to spend too much but if you think a particular brand is a shining example of everything that’s good about alcohol, recommend it and I’ll see what I can do. Thanks, guys!
