My sister-in-law recently turned the big 2-1, and I wanted to put together a fun treat for her to enjoy for her birthday. Instead of buying her a straight up bottle of booze to commemorate the occasion, I opted to make a fun gift basket for her to take back to her apartment this summer as she gears up for her last year of college so she can make her own Adult Cherry Coke. I love the #ShareaCoke campaign with Coca-Cola, so I thought I’d take it literally and incorporate it into her gift! (Luckily, this year’s Coke campaign is bigger than ever with 1000 names printed on bottles available at Walmart, so I knew I would find her name!)
Putting this basket together was super easy. I visited my local Walmart with their new Coca-Cola display up near the front of the store. They also had a wide, organized selection in the coolers near the check-out lanes as well as in the pop aisle (or soda, depending on where you are from). Then, I grabbed the REESE’s Peanut Butter Cups with the cute names on them at the check-out lanes (which are exclusive to Walmart). The personalization on both of these items makes for a fun gift for sure!
To round up my supplies, I grabbed a couple of cherry flavored vodkas, cherries and a cute cup with a straw, as well as a basket. (I had the crinkle paper and bow in my stash at home.) And here is the finished product- ta daaaa!
1 ounce cherry vodka (vanilla or black cherry would work well too!)
4 marachino cherries
splash of marachino cherry juice
8 ounces Coca-Cola (Diet works well too!)
- Fill a glass with ice. Add vodka, cherries, and maraschino cherry juice to each glass.
- Pour cola into glass. Stir to combine.
Who would you Share a Coke with? I’d love to hear your comments and ideas!
