What’s inside the Smokeshow?

What’s inside the Smokeshow?

Inside our March box, the Smokeshow,  you’ll discover ingredients for two tantalizingly smoky mocktails and one vibrant ready-to-drink option. Let’s uncover the exceptional ingredients that make the Smokeshow a true standout!

Cut Above Mezcal

Introducing the featured ingredient of this month’s box: the award-winning Cut Above Mezcal. Mezcal is one of the fastest-growing and most sought-after spirits in the U.S. The defining trait of Cut Above Mezcal is a balanced, roasted smokiness. It brings a complex and distinct flavor that compliments the earthy, floral, and fruitiness also found in the spirit without being overpowering. 

Cut Above Agave Blanco

For those who may not be into the smoky profile, we wanted to ensure this month’s feature drink could also be tested with another option. Enter Cut Above’s Agave Blaco. Crafted with all-natural ingredients, Cut Above blends cubeba pepper, Mexican lime oil, Italian chinotto, quassia, Angelica, and grapefruit extracts to perfection, creating a smooth and vibrant agave blanco. This bottle captures the beloved smoothness and depth that has made it a timeless classic in the world of spirits, offering a delightful alternative for those seeking a different agave experience.

Tart Cherry Juice

We were so inspired by the viral “Sleepy Girl Mocktail” trend that we couldn’t resist putting our own unique spin on it with an RTB twist! It’s important to note that while our rendition of the Sleepy Girl mocktail deviates from the original recipe by omitting magnesium, we’ve crafted an equally delightful alternative called the “Fireside” for our second drink of the month. Featuring Orchard Bay’s Tart Cherry Juice, this beverage delivers a burst of fresh-from-the-orchard flavor. Made from all-natural ingredients, gluten-free, and GMO-free, this juice is packed with natural antioxidants. This versatile ingredient can be savored on its own or incorporated into a mocktail for a refreshing twist.

Lapsang Souchong Tea  – Oliver Pluff & Co

To complement our tart cherry juice in the Fireside cocktail, we’ve enlisted Oliver Pluff & Co’s Lapsang Souchong black tea. Renowned for its bold, smoky flavor profile, this tea lends a unique depth and complexity to zero-proof drinks like none other. Oliver Pluff & Co. stands as another award-winning addition to this month’s box, boasting a steadfast dedication to America’s tea heritage. Each product is meticulously handpicked and proudly made in America, reflecting their commitment to quality and tradition. 

Improv Booze-Free Tropical Mai Tai

For our ready-to-drink option in this month’s box, we’re featuring Improv’s Booze-Free Tropical Mai Tai. With enticing notes of caramel, coconut, oak, and citrus, this refreshing concoction will most likely transport you to a sun-soaked day at the beach. Dress it up with your favorite garnish—we suggest a pineapple wedge and leaves, though feel free to get creative! 

This box also includes lemon juice, honey, and honeycomb to enhance your mixology endeavors (you’ll have to wait for the recipes to see what they’re for!) As a friendly reminder, Raising the Bar offers detailed recipes in our monthly cocktail kits, but we encourage you to unleash your creativity and personalize each drink to your taste. Let our recipes serve as a springboard for your imagination. Don’t miss out on this one — subscribe today to secure your Smokeshow box before it’s gone!
