Past Boxes from High Desert Botanicals
August features our light and bright Lemon Pepper mini bitters kit with the Bohr Atomizer to mist the bitters over a drink for maximum olfactory pleasure. Pair the lemon pepper bitters with black Hawaiian lava salt for a striking gin fizz.
Get your home bar ready for a backyard luau! July's Box features ingredients for making falernum (rum flavored with spices and almonds, a staple of tiki recipes) plus one of our exclusive black 10 oz tiki mugs.
Spice up your cocktails with the chilis and chocolate! Based on the sweet, spicy sauce from Oaxaca, our Mole Negro Bitters pair well with mezcal and tequila. To serve them up, we're including our 136 Dasher, named for the refractive index of ethanol, and a garnish of freeze-dried limes. Unlike hard, brown, oven-dried citrus, freeze-dried retains its color and flavor with a light, crisp texture.
The September box features ingredients to make hibiscus and elderflower cordials, two Italian swing-top bottles with self-closing pour spouts, freeze-dried lemon slices, and natural straws made from real straw. Each box has ingredients to make two flavors of syrups or two flavors of infused spirits. The Bormioli glass bottles have lids for storage and pour spouts for serving. The straws are made from real straw, which is biodegradable but won't dissolve in your drink.
it's starting to feel like fall in our October box with bitters and garnish for Old-Fashioneds. Sarsaparilla bitters and maple-spice sugar cubes pair perfectly with bourbon for an earthy, sweet, spice cocktail. A tall, elegant dasher bottle is a great way to serve up these bitters.
November's box features ingredients to craft sweet or dry vermouth, plus a limited-edition Ball mason jar with a shaker/strainer cap and freeze-dried blood oranges to garnish your small-batch Negronis. Skip the stale vermouth from the green bottle, craft your own fresh vermouth with brandy and wine or hard cider. Shake up a Negroni and top it with a light, crispy slice of blood orange.
Get cozy this winter—serve up drinks with a dash of dark chocolate bitters. Crushed peppermint and toffee candy for rimming the glass gives a sweet boost to every sip. The festive dasher will look great on your bar all year long. Our Dark Chocolate Bitters Kit features fair-trade Ecuadorian Arriba (AKA Nacional) cocoa beans that we've roasted in small batches for the perfect flavor, along with complimentary spices such as black cardamom and roasted chicory.
Keep the winter chill at bay with a tasty hot toddy. Features four herbal teas to pair with different types of whiskey, 4 oz of California wildflower honey, a wooden honey dipper, cinnamon sticks, and a tempered glass footed mug by ARC Cardinal. Perfect for sipping by the fire!
Step up your brunch Bloody Mary game with this month's box. February's box highlights savory, herbal celery bitters and garnishes that complement both qualities. Includes a Spicy Celery Mini Bitters Kit, an Anaxilaus dasher bottle, a tin of smoked salt, and freeze-dried lemon slices. Unlike oven-dried citrus, these have a light, crispy texture and retain their bright, fresh flavor. We cut a notch before drying so they will perch on the rim of your glass.
It's all about ginger this month! The March box includes kits to make ginger beer and ginger ale, freeze-dried lime slices, and a copper-plated Mule mug. Recipes include Mule variations, Dark & Stormy, and a frozen ginger peach bourbon slushie. Your choice of sweetener, no artificial colors or flavors.
Mix bittersweet Amaro Camparish and sparkling water for a refreshing summer aperitif. Garnish with a crisp, fragrant, freeze-dried blood orange slice and sip through a 100% natural and biodegradable straw that won't dissolve in your drink like a paper straw. Camparish Kit includes dried citrus peel, herbs, and citric acid. Recipe requires vodka, water, sugar, and optional food coloring.
