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.

  1. What a fun box to give or receive! All of these cocktails sound incredibly delish! In the summer I really enjoy a frozen daiquiri went we are out in the hot/heat or in the pool. I make a huge batch and keep them in the freezer, top with a bit of soda water and enjoy. This really would be a fantastic Christmas gift!!! It’s gorgeously put together and I love that the recipe cards come with, so you can make them again! How cool!

      I know. It’s such a good idea. I hate the thought of buying big bottles of spirits that sit around forever. But with these you can try something new out without committing to a big bottle. Mmm your frozen daiquiri sounds lovely. That makes me want summer back. Waah! Where did it go Nikki?

  2. This looks amazing! I am a lover of cocktail night – I didn’t even know this was a thing!!! our son gets graze boxes so maybe mummy needs one of these – yep I can justify it!

    • Sally Sally says:

      Me too. It’s such a nice thing to do with friends or your other half. Yes exactly graze boxes for grown ups. What could be better than that?

  3. What a great idea! I love that they send you minis of everything. Sometimes I want to try a new cocktail but don’t fancy the idea of buying a whole bottle of spirit or liqueur that’ll just linger in the cupboard getting sticky after a couple of cocktails.

    • Sally Sally says:

      Oh yes I know exactly what you mean Robyn. Why do the bottles in the cupboard always get sticky? Yes much nicer. It makes about 5 – 6 drinks so perfect for two of you to try a few each.

  4. What a great gift idea – although I would probably be tempted to keep it for myself or at least do a taste test LOL:) Thank you for the opportunity to link up and see you next week.

      It’s quite usual isn’t it Sue? You should give it to a friend and then wait for them to invite you round for cocktail night. Te he!
