Gift Idea for Him – Infused Bourbon with DIY Tag

Need a last minute Father’s Day gift idea that uses things you might already have at home? Infused bourbon to the rescue! Today we’re whipping up a quick apple pie bourbon recipe and have a free printable gift tag to go right along with it.

  • 1 chopped apple (we used honeycrisp)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle bourbon
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup (which is just water and sugar – you can make your own)
  • 8 oz mason jars (this recipe will fill three with a little left over – you can always use bigger jars!)


  • Southern Living free printable tags (you get four of the apple/cinammon tags)
  • trimmer – I am OBSESSED with my Fiskars Rotary Trimmer. OBSESSED.
  • scissors
  • Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker
  • patterned paper (we used a wood pattern)
  • twine
  • WRMK crop-a-dile or hole punch



  • Follow this easy recipe and let your concoction sit at room temperature for three to four days, then pour in to the mason jars and seal. Then you are ready to make your tag


  • Print tags and trim 1 5/8″ of the right edge of the entire page, then trim tags on the cut lines and make a pennant cut on the other end of each tag.
  • Run all of the tags (printed side up) through your Xyron Sticker Maker.
  • Cut patterned paper in to 1 3/8″ x 4 1/4″ strips, then center tags on to patterned paper and make a pennant cut on one end to match the shape of the tag.
  • Punch a hole on the flat edge of the tag, string through twine and wrap around the lid of the mason jar, then tie to secure.
