Jam while you mix!
Let's get organized.
Here's what you'll need (in addition to what's in your box) to make this month's drinks.
- Orange peel
Be ready to whip up this batch of zero-proof concoctions by refrigerating your liquid ingredients in advance. For the “Howl” cocktail, steep both Teatulia teabags together in 8 oz. of boiling water, and refrigerate them in advance for use in the recipe
Tools & Glassware
- Wine glass or champagne flute
Please note, the above are optional!
Don't have a shaker? Mix it up in a drinking glass with a spoon! Don't have a jigger? Use a shot glass or tablespoon measure. No fresh juice? These are just suggestions on how to get the most variation out of your box, but you can get creative on your own and experiment!
Ready. Set. Mix!
- 1.5 oz. Kentucky 74
- .5 oz Apple Cranberry Smash
- 2 oz. AVEC Ginger
- Dried Apple garnish oz.
In a shaker with ice, combine Kentucky 74, Apple Cranberry Smash, AVEC Ginger. Stir vigorously to chill, then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a dried apple slice clipped to the rim of glass. If this drink packs too much of a punch for you, you can turn it into a highball by adding a couple of ounces of club soda and serving it in a tall glass with ice.
- 3 oz. Kentucky 74
4 oz. pre-brewed, chilled vanilla rooibos tea
1 SAYSO Old Fashioned Sachet
Optional: dash of bitters (aromatic, orange, ginger turmeric, or anything you have lying around!)
In a shaker, mix Kentucky 74 with brewed tea (include bitters if desired). Steep the SAYSO sachet in the shaker for at least 3 minutes. Once steeped, extract the liquid from the sachet into the shaker, add ice, and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Strain into two ice-filled tumblers and garnish with orange peel.
- Joni Rouge
ONI Verjus Drink Rouge -JONI Rouge is a non-alcoholic, lightly sparkling drink and mixer. Warm, earthy notes of herbs and spices including allspice, cardamom and rosemary balance the crisp, naturally tart sip of verjus.
Enjoy chilled straight from the can, with a dash of bitters, or make it a lighter spritz by mixing in club soda and a lemon twist. Cheers!
