I have been beyond impressed with Shaker & Spoon. I purchased a 3 month subscription for Valentines Day for my husband. It's been fun to share these cocktails in front of a fire on cold winter nights in Chicago! The drinks have been delicious and great quality. The box does not include the alcohol as regulations do not allow the shipment of alcohol, however I just picked up a bottle of whatever liquor was being featured that month and we pretty much went through the bottle by the end of the month. Everything else is inside, which includes unusual ingredients that I could not have found in the store. They also allow you to skip a box if you are not fond of the featured liquor or switch it out for a previous box. Regarding the price, I got it at a discounted price as a Cratejoy feature. It's probably about the same as you would spend in a bar, but allows you to make quality and interesting cocktails at home without the hassle of digging up new recipes and finding the unusual ingredients which you would have to purcase at higher quantity thus higher cost. To top it off, the customer service has been excellent with quick responses from the team with several questions I had at the onset. This makes a fantastic gift for the cocktail lover!
