diy cactus drink stirrer sticks


Cacti are all the rage right now and since I’m an Arizona native, I have a love for these prickly plants! Living next door to my parents and across the street from our oldest brother, I am constantly hosting impromptu get togethers and wanted to spruce up my drinks a bit without too much fuss. These DIY Cactus Drink Stirrer Sticks are cute enough for a Friendsday Night in with the girls but still masculine enough for my brother to mix his drink with!

The sparkling IZZE® is of course delicious on its own but adding a zesty lemon gives it that prickly taste and the pear adds the perfect amount of sweetness to it.
