CRAFT: Whiskey Tasting Set

My husband is always coming up with crazy "crafts" for me to do that are man-friendly.  This particular project was for a whiskey tasting party he was having with  my brothers.  This so-called party involved tasting whiskey, smoking cigars and playing video games.  I watched scary movies alone in bed (my idea of a perfect evening!)

This set was inspired by one we found at Crate and Barrel.  Of course, as soon as I saw it, I said, "I could make something better!"  I bought the glasses at Marshall's for ridiculously cheap.  The tray was found at an estate sale for $1... and painted with chalkboard paint.  The most expensive part of this project (aside from the whiskey) was the chalk markers.  Seriously, though, they're worth every cent!  If you have chalkboard paint anywhere in your home, you MUST get chalk markers!  

When labeling your whiskeys make sure to include the location of the distillery.  Apparently, this is an important part of whiskey drinking.  If it's on the bottle, include the years aged, as well.  

Check out the photos and get some inspiration for your man and his buds!

  2. This is a great idea! My husband would love to host a party like this.

  3. What a fun way to make your own version on the cheap! I'd love it if you stopped by and linked up at Thrifty to Nifty Thursdays at A Jennuine Life.

  4. this is the coolest - my husband would LOVE this! He's a bourbon fan. We spent 8 years in Louisville - how could he not be? :)
