Mother's Day Gift Guide

MothersDay

Mother's Day is coming! Have you gotten a gift yet? My favorite Mother's Day gift is of course a bottle of Jackson Morgan and a vase of fresh blooms, but I have several other ideas for every mom's style. 

I love a fun bar cart, fancy earrings, barware, cocktail napkins, cookbook, high tech water bottle, or an everyday tote. I tend to gift something that my mother would not typically purchase for herself that would be considered a treat.

Mini Bottles

Last fall we released new sizes in our bottles. How fun are our new mini bottles? Perfect for rough travel days.

Next time you find yourself on a flight, trying mixing Jackson Morgan (mini bottle size) with coffee.

How to Create a Brunch Coffee Bar

For Jackson Morgan's Easter Brunch, we already shared recipes for spiked banana bread and iced coffee. We swapped out our usual bar cart for a coffee bar. This set up is easy and you can use items you already own. 

How to Create a Coffee Bar: 

  • Pick a theme, for our coffee bar we chose bright colors for spring. 
  • Use coffee mugs you already own and mix and match. We used a variety of Ashley Brooke Design's mugs. Everyone picked their favorite saying to sip on coffee. 
  • Pick your favorite liquor, we of course had our spring flavors of Jackson Morgan (banana pudding and salted caramel). We also had champagne for mimosas. 
  • For your mixers, use carafes. We had iced coffee, hot coffee (we kept the hot coffee near the coffee maker), and orange juice. 
  • Include fun items such as paper straws, hazelnut wafers (for coffee stirrers), tray, flowers, and artwork. 
  • Have alternative drinks such as sparkling water for between cocktails.

Cheers!  

 

 

Adult Easter Basket

Easter is around the corner, children should not be the only ones who receive Easter baskets. Why not make an "adult" Easter basket? Show your besties some love with an assortment of spring treats. 

For our adult basket, we included fancy chocolates from William-Sonoma including a chocolate bunny, jelly beans, chocolate eggs, and speckled eggs. A "Hello Sunshine" mug from Ashley Brooke Designs. Last but not least a bottle of Jackson Morgan in banana pudding. You could also include candles, cocktail glasses, coffee beans, a favorite movie, or nail polish. 

Cheers! 

Banana Iced Coffee

With the start of Spring, we have traded in our traditional hot coffee for iced coffee. For brunch or an afternoon pick me up, this coffee cocktail is our go to treat. Simply add Jackson Morgan banana pudding to your favorite iced coffee. 

Ingredients:

·   8 oz Iced Coffee

·   1 1/2 Oz Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding

Directions:

Pour iced coffee over ice, then add in Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding and stir. 

Cheers!

 

Spiked Banana Bread

For my Easter brunch, I made banana bread and spiked it with Jackson Morgan's banana pudding flavor. I cheated (a little) and used William-Sonoma's banana bread mix. I love banana bread, but sometimes I do not have time to make it from scratch, and this mix saved the day.  

For the banana bread recipe (per William-Sonoma's instructions on the back of the mix), I swapped out 1/3 cup water for 1/3 cup Jackson Morgan in banana pudding. It was a crowd favorite and one of my favorite parts of my brunch. 

Cheers! 

Easter Brunch

It is hard to believe Easter is around the corner! I put together an easy and fun brunch to celebrate the occasion. Our family always gets together over Easter weekend and my mother hosts a lovely brunch and everyone dresses in their Sunday best. I wanted the focus of my brunch to be great company and food. 

For the menu, I had family classics such as a honey ham, deviled eggs, red potatoes, and quiche. I also mixed it up and had spiked banana bread, Callie's Hot Little Biscuits, specked yellow cake, fruit tarts, nest brownies from William-Sonoma, and tea sandwiches. I will be sharing several of those recipes later on The Sip. 

How do you celebrate Easter?

Spring Bar Refresh

Spring

Although it is still technically winter, this weekend temperatures were in the 70's in Tennessee, which means it is time to add a few touches of spring to my bar area. Jackson Morgan's newest flavor, banana pudding is the perfect spring drink and looks lovely on any bar.

Below are a few of my favorite items to refresh your bar area for spring, I LOVE the pineapple decanter and adorable Easter pillow. A boxwood wreath is always a favorite, new artwork can freshen up any space, and paper straws are an inexpensive way to change decor with the seasons. The navy bar from Serena and Lily is part bar cart and part party bucket which will transition well for summer entertaining. 

What is your favorite decor items to freshen up your home with the seasons?

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for the Guys

Valentine's Day always comes across as a girls holiday, but we cannot forget about the guys. I always struggle finding the right present amongst all of the pink and red candy and heart shaped gifts. 

What guy would not love a cooler paired with a bottle of Jackson Morgan? We found this green Yeti cooler that would work well for tailgating or even hunting trips. Our whipped orange flavor is always a winner with men. A rugged vest or insulated cup that works with both hot or cold drinks also make great gifts for Valentine's Day. 

Cheers! 

Check out our gift guide for the hostess too! 

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Valentine's Day is around the corner and we have a series of curated gift guides. A bottle of Jackson Morgan makes the perfect gift by itself, but paired with a hostess gift makes it a home run. 

I centered this gift guide around the hostess. It is no secret that I love to host a fun cocktail party and these gifts would be perfect for any gathering. Valentine's Day would not be complete without a party dress (p.s. this Draper James dress is on sale!). 

I love this fun embellished apron from Bon Aprontit, there is nothing worse than having to cover up a pretty dress with an ugly apron. Another favorite is Birdie's hostess slippers. These slippers are not your grandmother's slipper especially with the tassel accent. You cannot go wrong with monogram linen cocktail napkins, these Shop Lettermade napkins are a personal favorite. Lastly, what girl would not love a blush Le Creuset dutch oven, which also makes a great gift basket for a cocktail shaker and a bottle of Jackson Morgan.
