"For the 5 by 5 I wanted to make a cocktail with tropical notes and use bourbon instead of rum or tequila. So many times we leave whiskey out of the mix with summer cocktails, but bourbon and whiskey thrive in summer sours. They’ve got enough punch with flavor and proof to stay present in the drink, but can also blend beautifully with the most common tropical flavors like mango, pineapple, and coconut." -Heather Wibbels, Whiskey Mixologist and Content Creator at Cocktail

Q: Are these recipes gluten free?Asked by Maggie R., September 2019
Hi Maggie, thanks for reaching out! Our recipes are typically 100% gluten free, given that our mixes are and that liquor is generally gluten free. We do feature other syrups, garnishes or spices in our boxes that may not be gluten-free, but the best would be to review the ingredient labels just to be sure. Please feel free to reach out should you have any other questions!

Q: I’m not a big fan of whiskey. Is it possible to replace boxes that I don’t like?Asked by Heather L., June 2021
Hi Shannon, Thank you for reaching out to us. We are glad of your interest in our Cocktail box . The way our boxes work is we have 1 recipe per month curated by our partner Mixologist. It's a great way for people to explore different kinds of drinks during their subscription period. In the event that the recipe of the month would not suit your taste, you can either skip a month or we can send you one of our standard boxes or previous month's box( if in stock) as an alternative. For any other requests or questions, feel free to send us an email. Thank you. Cheers!
The boxes come well equipped and the drinks are easy and exciting to create. These are great gift to anyone who enjoys learning and making new drinks! Shipment was exactly as explained on website! Fast delivery!
This was a gift for some young 20-somethings. They thoroughly enjoy receiving and "using" their gift every month. It's simple and fun, plus opens up the palate to options that one might not otherwise try,
This was a gift for my inlaws for Christmas and they thoroughly enjoyed every box! They would send photos of them enjoying their cocktails, learned there is more to life than gin and tonics and beer, and learned about new ingredients and a little mixology. Would order this for them again.
After 6 months: I liked the quality but I became tired of the repetitive flavor profiles. The box always included a sweet, thick, homemade fruity mixer, as well as tonic and dried fruit garnish. Heavy on mango and ginger during my time. I was not disappointed but needed a break.
Not worth the price.
Three of my five orders we’ve gotten so far were basically the same or similar. I am not a fan of smoky flavor so to get 2 of 5 orders with a “smoky flavor xyz” ingredient was a bummer. Also the shipment I received today was missing the basil salt/sugar packet and items were not even properly placed into the protective foam, like it was rushed or didn’t care. Not renewing.
This box was sadly a huge disappointment. It was a gift for my brother n law and we ended up paying a 100.00 for three months (the package without the liquor). The first box came and was one mixer that looked artisinal but then a can of Dole pineapple juice (seriously a .99 cent can) and then dried pineapples. Just out of control not worth it, I'm honestly shocked that it even has as high of a review that it does on this site. Do yourself a favor and avoid buying this.
This is a great gift idea. It was fun and exciting to make your drinks together. Such a great way to bond.
loved the branding - it's well done - and nothing came out of place! Nice gift idea, my mom loved it! Excited to taste the recipe!
Great gift and the shipping is on time. The monthly boxes are well-curated and packed. We love it!

I’m an ex-pro surfer turned surfboard builder who was fortunate enough to travel the world seeing and learning about different cultures of life. Coming from a small town like New Smyrna it was eye-opening to and amazing to experience these types of things without being in the classroom. I’m into Latin life it’s so adventurous and fun hence the margarita style drink we have come up with for this one.
Lindsay & Morgan Vandygriff, sisters from Austin, TX helped us curate this months box. They have a passion for exploring local food & beverages and we are thrilled to work with them! “Moscow Mules have always been a favorite of our family & we always keep ingredients on hand at our lake house. We decided to give our recipe a local flair using Tito’s Vodka. We love pairing this with the Spicy Ginger Mule mix to give you a warming sensation, [perfect for the winter!]"
Irene is the go-to guide for information on all the exciting events and dining adventures going on in the Hudson Valley, New York City, Connecticut and nearby areas. “I was inspired by the flavors and laid back vibe of the tropics. I love to spread the word about fine dining, craft cocktails and fun. I look for natural ingredients and if possible local farms in the Hudson Valley. Don't be afraid to experiment with new combinations of flavors.”
"It's perfect for February since Valentine's nonsense is floating around everywhere. It's a gift to yourself, bright, vibrant and bubbly. I do appreciate how the ACC Watermelon Mojito combines natural ingredients so you don't have to stress chop watermelon and wrangle a ton of mint. You can make a treat for yourself in a simple 1-2-3!" - Dan Magro Everything Box: 4 x Camarena Blanco Tequila 1 x Watermelon Mojito 1 x Goslings ginger beer Various Rose Petals Bar Spoon
