Taste Cocktails can only be describes as a little box of happiness. When my box arrived in the post, I gave a little whoop as I knew when the weekend came, it would be cocktail night. And EVERYONE loves cocktail night.
Taste Cocktails offer boxes of bar-quality spirits with handy recipe cards through the post. Think graze boxes but bigger and full of spirits. You can buy a box as a one-off or you can subscribe to their service and really get to know the difference between a Singapore sling and a mudslide.
The weekend rolled around and we opened our box. Which I might add, was very well presented. You can see what I mean below. I’m a sucker for something that well-packaged. Who isn’t?
We’d opted for The Daiquiri Box and the recipe card soon had us mixing up three different types of daiquiris. The classic, the Hemmingway and the Canchanchara. I’m not going to spoil the surprise and tell you what’s in them, although if you are a daiquiri fan, you’ll know the classic recipe off by heart. Each box has a modern twist and ours was that we were using rum from Panama and not the traditional Cuban rum.
I had a personal favourite and it was the Canchanchara, although it took a good long mix to get the honey to blend.
I’m not going to reveal any more as I don’t want to ruin what surprise your box might bring, but I would suggest you go online now and order yourself a little box of happiness. Then you too can be having a little informal cocktail party next weekend (no dress required). Each box makes 5 – 6 drinks.
And hey, it’s Christmas coming up. Why not think outside the box and get a box of Taste Cocktails for that special someone. It’s definitely a present they’ll share with you!
Single boxes start at £29 and monthly subscriptions from £22, for year-round cocktails. Right now the company are crowd funding, so you can own a piece of the company when you buy a kit.
Disclosure: Taste Cocktails sent me The Daiquiri Box to try, but as always, my opinions are my own.
