High Desert Botanicals

Carson City, NV
High Desert Botanicals is a small shop run by Janel Johnson and Reese Tietje of Carson City. We started making bitters kits in April 2013 when we first tried to make our own cocktail bitters at home. We didn't have much luck finding milk thistle seed and burdock root in the supermarket and had to order them online in huge quantities. We knew we would never be able to use all of those ingredients before they became stale and realized that there might be other people out there who want to experiment with making their own bitters but don't want to order a ton of weird herbs. We make these kits so other people can have fun with bitters without a huge investment.
Homemade Cocktail Mixers Box, from $37.50
Homemade Cocktail Mixers Box

Create bespoke mixers for your home bar. Each box includes the ingredients and instructions to make one cocktail mixer, a piece of specialty glassware, a garnish, and a drink recipe. The mixers will be an assortment of bitters, syrups, infused spirits, and specialty liqueurs. Glassware will include unique dasher bottles, syrup bottles, drinkware, and other barware. Garnishes include flavored salts, flavored sugars, freeze-dried fruits and flowers, or specialty garnish hardware. Our recipes cover a wide variety of drinks from the classic old-fashioned to funky tiki concoctions. Our kits include all of the specialized ingredients you will need but may also require common ingredients such as vodka, sugar, and fresh fruits. Homemade mixers are free from artificial colors and flavors and many can be made with alternative sweeteners such as stevia or honey. Box does not include alcohol.
