This August, we’re inviting you on a tropical vacation – and you don’t even have to leave your house. Our “Freebird” box has everything you need to mix up refreshing zero-proof versions of our favorite rum-based cocktails, plus accessories that will take your home bartending to the next level. Take a look at what we’ve put together for you this month.
Fluere Spiced Cane
August’s featured ingredient is a Spiced Cane Dark Roast Spirit from Fluere. Its bold notes of chocolate and coffee balance out the sweetness of sugar cane and tonka bean, all blending together to create a top-notch rum alternative. Enjoy it in our NA takes on a Jungle Bird, a Dark and Stormy, and a daiquiri, or get creative with your own unique recipes. The full-sized bottle gives you plenty to experiment with.
Ish Lime Daiquiri
Winner of the 2022 L.A. Sprit Awards Gold Metal, this Lime Daiquiri from Ish is a delicious zero-proof twist on a summer favorite. The taste of dark Rum is balanced with raw sugar and sour limes, mainly sourced from Mexico. In addition, Ish uses a unique distillate using the shells from chili seeds to provide the satisfying heat we all love from our cocktails. Each can contains enough for two servings, so it’s the perfect drink to share with friends.
Stappi Red Bitter Aperitif
An Italian classic, Stappi’s Red Bitter Aperitif is a fantastic sub in for Campari. The production of this aperitif is based out of the small Italian town of Sant’Elena Sannita, and they pride themselves on using high-quality ingredients and natural extracts in their recipes. It has an herbal, aromatic flavor and a beautiful red color that brightens up any cocktail you add it to.
Gosling’s Ginger Beer
There’s a reason why Gosling’s is the number one ginger beer in the US. With a perfect balance of sweetness and tang, it was specifically designed to pair with rum (or a rum alternative) making it a staple in all kinds of cocktails. We love it in a Dark and Stormy.
Bragg Pineapple Cayenne Apple Cider Vinegar Shot
Looking for a daily dose of wellness that doesn’t skimp on flavor? Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is blended with honey and spices for an instant prebiotic pick-me-up that functions the same as a shrub. We’ve incorporated their Pineapple Cayenne flavor into this month’s drinks for a bright, bold flavor that you can feel good about drinking.
Hotel Starlino Maraschino Cherries
Hotel Starlino is all about quality. Their all-natural Maraschino cherries are matured for two weeks in their natural Marasca juice and then rested for another week to achieve their peak flavor. The end result is a rich, sweet garnish that will bring a little extra luxury to your cocktails.
The “Freebird” box also includes a Lewis bag and mallet – handy bartending tools that help you elevate your drinks with perfectly crushed ice. In addition to bringing a sense of sophistication and personalization to this month’s cocktails, it’s also just really fun to use. July’s box sold out fast, so don’t wait to order this month.
