I posted my first video today. It’s an unboxing of the shipment from Shaker and Spoon. This is a subscription service that sends you all that you need to make 3 different cocktails. All you have to buy is the bottle of booze.
This first one was for November and it is Mezcal Month. So I had to buy a bottle of Mezcal Reposado. If you watch the video you can see all the stuff they sent me. But basically, it was:
Barefoot Botanicals White Sage Hydrosol
Dashfire Lemon Bitters
FloraLuna Cherry Vanilla Bitters
Blake Hill Wild Rose Infused Strawberry Jam
Brooklyn Crafted Lemon Lime Ginger Beer
Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade
Mother shrub Pineapple
Crispy pineapple slices
We’ve only made one cocktail so far, it’s the Abstract Distraction, which we thought was apt since we were watching election results.
It was delicious. It was slightly sweet with a rose flavor. Very refreshing and light. I would have thought it was more of a summer drink. But since it was almost 75 degrees on this lovely November day, it fit right in.
If you want to try it, use this link and you will get 50% off your first box (they’re normally about $50).
