Shaker & Spoon Winter Bourbon Box Review

Shaker & Spoon Winter Bourbon Box Review

Shaker & Spoon is a cocktail subscription that sends everything to make three cocktails, minus the alcohol.  Boxes are $40.00/month and the box comes with 3 recipes to make 12 drinks (4 from each recipe) and all the ingredients (minus the alcohol) to make each drink.  The winter box was themed around bourbon, so I knew my husband would be more than willing to review this box.

The Details:

Cost: $40.00/month, $110.00/3 months.

Coupon: Use the coupon FIRST10 to save 10% on your 1st box.

What’s in the box? Each box comes with 3 recipes to make 12 drinks (4 from each recipe) and all the ingredients (minus the alcohol, we used Makers Mark ) to make each drink.  You will need to have a shaker and measuring spoons.

Shaker & Spoon shipped in a polymailer bag and came in a little brown box.

043

First Look.

070

There was an introduction to the box and a list of everything in the box.  This box featured a special free bonus, a channel knife.

074

There were two pages of cocktail glossary definitions, so you will know the terms used in the recipes.

075

There were also directions for different techniques.

067

There was some produce in the box and all of it arrived fresh and stayed fresh for a long time. The little berries in the front are Inca berries and the product in the back is oolong tea.

062

Syrups and Bitters: There were several bitters and syrups included for the recipes.  I was impressed that each bottle protected and nothing broke in the box.

063

Anais pods and Sugar The anais pods and sugar were the final ingredients included in the box.

Channel Knife

Channel Knife Boxes normal don’t include tools, so gettin this channel knife was a special bonus.  This makes part of the garnish for one of the drinks.

Oolong Toddy

Oolong Toddy: This drink combines bourbon, tea, honey, and lemon.  It is made to be served warm.

083

Taste Impressions: This had a citrus taste and the bourbon settled to the bottom, which made this drink pretty strong.

Fire in Your Belly

Fire in Your Belly: For this drink, you make an Old Fashioned, and adding hellfire tincure.

094

Taste Impressions: This definitely had a sour taste, really too much sour with the bourbon. This was not my husband’s favorite.

Inca Berry Sour:

Inca Berry Sour:  For this drink, Inca berries are added to bourbon for an added citrus flavor.

087

Taste Impressions: This was sweet with a bit of sour, my husband thought it could have been even better with more lemon.  Overall, this was a nice drink.  The stones in the drink are actually ice cube stones and didn’t come with the box.

081

Final Thought: This was a great box and my husband especially loved reviewing it.  There was more than enough ingredients to make at least 12 drinks, if not more.  This would make a great box to get for parties.  If you want to subscribe, use this link with the coupon FIRST10 to save 10% on your 1st box.
