Every year I am trying to figure out how to make the perfect gift for friends and family. And this year thanks to ZingZang, my friends and family will enjoy my awesome gift basket.

You see, I love to smoke a lot of different foods: meats, cheeses, nuts and fishes. But not all foods make great items for my homemade gifts. Even though they all are delicious.

This year I made a wonderful gift basket with some of my recently smoked treats and eats, such as my beef snack sticks, smoked nuts and smoked cheeses.

I also love to include cans of ZingZang Margarita and Bloody Mary mixes. The ZingZang mixes helps to make an awesome gift basket that is the envy of all of the friends of my friends and family.

But first thing first, while assembling my gift basket, I needed to make myself a Margarita and a Bloody Mary. For each can, you will want to use 1 ½ ounces of your favorite spirit.

For the margarita I either use mezcal or tequila. For my Bloody Mary, it is always vodka. Garnish as you desire.

For my gift basket this year I included the following items:

  • Basket
  • Tissue paper
  • Two packs of smoked beef snack sticks
  • Smoked jalapeno cheddar cheese
  • Smoked candied walnuts
  • Wine stoppers
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Mezcal/tequila sipping glass
  • Tequila and Vodka
  • ZingZang Margarita and Bloody Mary mixes

I start by first taking tissue paper and lining my basket. I then carefully place all of the items in the basket so that when my family and friends see this amazing gift basket, they will no doubt want to open up a can of ZingZang mix and share one with me. I call that a win-win, especially when they are smiling.

So, for this holiday season, no doubt ZingZang you should really check out.
