Gift giving on a budget: Bacardi birthdays

My baby cousin turned 18 years old last month – all 6’2 of him. Here in Quebec, this is quite the momentous occasion as you have reached legal drinking age. As a result, many Canadian teenagers and those from the northeast USA flock to Montreal to celebrate their 18th birthdays on the pubs of Crescent Street.

I picked up a shot glass adorned with the Quebec flag ($4) and a mini shooter ($3), and for $5, I sent the package via snail mail. While he wasn’t joining us in the la belle province to party, I hope I gave him a legitimate case to drink Bacardi on his birthday.
