In honor of today being World Cocktail Day I figured it would be the perfect time to tell you about Shaker & Spoon, a cocktail subscription club that I tried out this month! Shaker & Spoon sends you everything you need to make 3 different cocktail recipes (4 of each, 12 cocktails total). We’re talking syrups, bitters, garnishes, mixers, citrus—everything is included besides the alcohol. Each month is based on a different spirit, so you have the opportunity to try something new with each box. It also makes a great gift for the cocktail lovers in your life.
This month was the agave blanco box. Tequila! My favorite.It was stocked with produce, syrups, bitters, chiles, and even a little bottle of tajin to rim glasses.The easy to follow recipe cards give you all the info you need from instructions to what type of glass to use. The first recipe I tried was a refreshing cocktail made with cucumber, chili pepper, and limes.
The next one is a Mexican version of a moscow mule. It was made with a delicious Mexican spice syrup and ginger beer.
Last but not least, a spicy recipe featuring mole bitters, habanero shrub, and agave!
Thirsty yet? You can sign up now and receive $20 off any subscription with the discount code ‘melodrama’!
The next box is Sake (the Japanese fermented rice liquor) and Shaker & Spoon will be donating a portion of proceeds to the Helen David Relief Fund, which assists women in the bar industry who are fighting breast cancer. If you’d like to further support this great cause and will be in Las Vegas on May 19th, you can attend the annual For the Love Of Cocktails event! They will be raising money for the HDRF and showcasing 35 cocktails by bartenders from around the country.
