What’s in the Pink Velvet?
As we bid farewell to 2023, we present our grand finale: the Pink Velvet box. This kit features three bold, refreshing, and downright delicious recipes. The star is our Pink Velvet concoction, skillfully crafted with FLUÉRE raspberry zero-proof spirit. With its bold floral and piney profile, this drink gracefully dances on the palate. Adding a refreshing and sophisticated twist, Grapefruit Hella Bitters & Soda creates a fusion of botanicals and bubbles that’s truly satisfying. Now, let’s dive into the contents of this month’s box.
FLUÈRE invites you to embrace comfort with their exceptional non-alcoholic spirits, crafted for those exploring the “Sober Curious” lifestyle. Drawing inspiration from ancient Romans, they use hydro steam distillation to extract delightful flavors from botanicals, embodying a commitment to a smooth and continuous experience. Our featured ingredient this month is the Pink Gin alternative – a delightful blend of floral and piney notes from juniper, a lively citrus kick from lime peel, and the sweet notes of fresh raspberry.
Discover the exceptional flavor of Bitters & Soda, a premium sparkling apéritif that achieves its refreshing taste from a carefully cultivated Gentian Tincture in the South of France. With its unsweetened profile and notes of ripe grapefruit, allspice, and bitter root, it offers a sophisticated and dynamic experience for your non-alcoholic sipping pleasure. Whether enjoyed alone or blended into light mocktails, this ingredient complements the FLUÈRE raspberry blend in our featured drink, adding a dry burst of flavor to your non-alcoholic mixology adventure.
SAYSO, a familiar face in our monthly boxes, brings simplicity and innovation to the table. Co-founded by Alison & Chloe, SAYSO addresses the challenge of achieving bar-quality cocktails at home with the introduction of cocktail teabags. Designed for easy steeping in spirits, these tea bags offer a balanced drink experience. Savor the low-calorie, low-sugar Cardamom Paloma Sachet, expertly crafted as the perfect companion for one of this month’s additional cocktails—our delightful Pretty in Pink Paloma.
Tilden, founded by Vanessa and Mariah, emerged from a joint quest for sophisticated non-alcoholic options. Together, they crafted Tilden as a response, creating non-alcoholic social beverages for genuine moments. Each cocktail is carefully designed for a flavorful experience from the first sip to the last. Tilden introduces a transformative non-alcoholic cocktail experience with their ready-to-serve Tandem, perfect for pouring over ice and savoring a delightful sensory journey. With under 35 calories, low sugar, and free of added sugars, colors, and preservatives, Tilden redefines the art of celebration and can be found in our “Wishes in Tandem” cocktail.
Enhance your beverage experience with Sacred Plant Co’s Dried Rosa Canina Petals, a beautiful garnish that perfectly complements our feature drink. Harvested in small batches, these premium botanicals are known for their soothing and uplifting properties, playing a significant role in European, Ayurvedic, and Chinese herbal practices. Versatile in skincare, teas, and culinary creations, these aromatic petals add an elevated aesthetic and flavor profile of your drinks.
This month’s box also includes a pink ice ball tray—an elegant addition to your cocktail collection. Elevate your Pink Velvet concoction by adding dried rose petals to the freezing water for a subtle touch of sophistication. For any leftover FLUÈRE, mix it with club soda and a squeeze of lemon or tonic for a refreshing drink. Finally, we’ve included two sparklers – ring in the New Year or light up the doldrums of winter as you bring some sparkle to your life!
