Summer is the time of impromptu gatherings, new neighbors moving into the neighborhood, and family cookouts — and all of these occasions certainly call for celebration! I love a curated hostess or welcome gift, and I put this cocktail gift together recently and just knew I had to share it. This Vodka Limoncello Cocktail gift is easy to throw together and the drink itself is summertime in a glass!
The best part? You can gift the ingredients on their own, or find a basket or ice bucket to tie it all together (this lucite ice bucket has been a favorite on the DoSayGive Gift Guide for years!). If you want to spend a bit less, wrap the ingredients in cellophane, add crinkle paper and a bow and you’re all set. See our holiday cocktail gift post for wrapping inspiration!

The cocktail recipe is courtesy of my friend CC Boone — and it is truly delicious! It’s the perfect refreshing cocktail for hot summer days or barbecues. Just write the recipe on a notecard and add it to the gift!
