Mini Liquor Bottle Favor Ideas!
1 – Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin
Why we love this – It’s one of the most popular premium gins on the market, so it’s readily available and quite affordable. Plus, it’s very mixable with any gin cocktail. [Why we really love it? The gorgeous blue bottle!]
Where to buy – Try your local wine stores or check for outlets in your locality via Wine Searcher.
2 – Mini Patron Tequila Silver (50ml mini size)
Why we love this – It’s the perfect ingredient for those margaritas your guests can mix up afterwards. Plus again, the bottle is so pretty!
3 – Verdi Spumante (187 ml mini size)
Why we love this – This light, fresh sparkling wine from Italy makes a delightfully classy favor to impress guests with.
4 – Personalized labels on mini Jack Daniels whiskey bottles
Why we love this – The labels make a great personal touch, and the chosen quote says exactly what the couple wanted it to say!
Where to buy – The Jack Daniels you can find easily. The labels were DIYed by the bride using a custom template ordered from etsy, sheet labels purchased online, and printing at a local FedEx Office store. You can do the same!
5 – Mini Bailey’s Irish Cream (50ml mini size)
Why we love this – Such a classic! Plus you can enclose a recipe card for your favorite dessert or drink using Bailey’s.
6 – Firefly Sweet Tea Flavored Vodka
Why we love this – A well-loved local beverage from South Carolina, it captures the genteel Southern spirit with a little kick to it!
7 – Coke with Maker’s Mark Bourbon Whiskey (mini bottles)
Why we love this – How cool would these Bourbon and Coke favors be for a casual at-home or rustic/Western-themed wedding?
Not too out of reach after all, right? Enjoy your liquor wedding favors. Your guests certainly will!
A Note About Buying Online
When purchasing any kind of liquor on the web, do understand that many states have shipping restrictions. So it’s probably best to check your local stores, too. In this way, if anything should happen you can still opt for a returning and/or exchanging your purchase with the vendor. Purchasing in bulk also complicates the matter, which is why it may be best to opt for a local source.
Creating Your Own Liquor Favors
Making liquor bottle favors on your own is also another practical option. In this way, you can personalize them accordingly. To do this, you’d need to buy small empty bottles*, a funnel for pouring the desired drink, and then affix your own labels*. It may be a bit messy so you will need help from at least 2 people especially if you are making bottles for 50+ guests. But if this is too cumbersome for you, you may want to consider a non-alcoholic option such as ready to give Martinelli’s sparkling apple cider (8.4 fl. oz). *Amazon affiliate links.
