Candy cane-colored straws for your holiday cocktails
Should we be worried that our annual holiday gift picks keep veering toward cocktail shakers? And ice buckets? And coasters painted with recipes for Cosmos and White Russians?
Hmmm. Among the picks in our first round of home and garden gift picks were these bits of holiday cheer. For those who need to down their drinks with festive party straws and a clear conscience, the witty crew at Kikkerland came up with biodegradable paper sippers whose candy-cane coloring comes courtesy of food-safe soy ink. We picked up a box (144 straws) at the Paper Source for $6.95. We're not sure what vodka residue does to a compost pile (happier kale?), but try it and tell us how it goes.
