How to Create the Perfect Drink Box
A few weeks back I was scheduled to attend a womens wellness retreat in Oregon that was hosted by my Personal Trainer, Megan Dahlman from Strong Mommas. Picture a big beautiful home with a view and 15 amazing women cooking, hiking, working out, and just generally enjoying time together.
Life gets in the way sometimes.
I decided to send the ladies a gift, if I couldn't be there in person I could at least be there in 'spirit'. #seewhatIdidthere
I put together a box of all the ingredients and tools to make Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas. I knew this was a spicy group of ladies that would appreciate a good soft cocktail...especially a Margarita. I imagined them standing around the kitchen raising their glass and toasting to their freedom - no changing of diapers, no grocery shopping, no shuttling of small humans anywhere, and maybe the chance to rest and laugh.
The box was so much fun to put together! Now I'm trying to figure out how I can make more and send them as gifts - surely Khloe Kardashian could have used one of these when she was pregnant?
It was so fun to see the ladies celebrating with the drinks but truly, I had the best time putting it together. It would make a wonderful hostess gift or a treat for a girl's weekend. And for you 'creative, pay attention to the details kind of girls'...can we talk about the chalkboard recipe that Erin from Yay Parties! put together? The icing on the cake:)
Here's what you'll need if you'd like to put together your own Spicy Grapefruit Margarita drink box:

The box is missing two key ingredients - orange juice and grapefruit juice. While fresh squeezed is always best and I would have loved to have included the fruit in the box it just didn't make sense for that many people. For efficiency, store bought was the way to go (that would have been a lot of juicing!!).
If I can help you with a drink box feel free to reach out! Or any fun ideas for other boxes...a non-alcoholic sangria perhaps? Or maybe a Cucumber Basil Cooler?
Life doesn't always work out how we plan but friends, how lucky we are to be a part of it all.
