My thanks to Shaker & Spoon for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Shaker & Spoon is a subscription box that solves the toughest challenges of a home bar with great ingredients and interesting recipes. Every box is built around a different spirit, and showcases various styles of cocktail-making. Each box arrives with 3 brand-new, original recipes created by world-class bartenders, and enough ingredients (syrups, bitters, mixers, garnishes) for 12 cocktails — 4 from each recipe. It’s perfect for get-togethers and special gifts. All you need to bring is the alcohol, and the box will use up the whole bottle for all 12 drinks.
I got their rye kit last month and the recipes were excellent. The instructions were clear, the ingredients were perfect, and all three cocktails were delicious and interesting. (I particularly liked their “Sugar and Spice”, an interesting twist on the Old Fashioned.)
If you love making (and drinking) cocktails and are looking to expand your repertoire, you should sign up for Shaker & Spoon.
