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 allergic to juniper/gin. Can I customize my box each month to make sure I don't get a cocktail with gin?Asked by Amy S., January 2020
Hi Amy! Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately we are unable to customize boxes at this time, given that we are still a growing company. But the above response from Robert is right! You are able to order an "Everything but the Booze Box" and if a recipe contains gin you can use vodka or tequila. Please don't hesitate to reach out again and cheers!
Not in my experience no. You could get everything but the booze box and then provide the booze yourself avoiding gin.
Q: Does someone need to be there to sign for the package?Asked by Laura A., December 2019
For the Everything Box someone is required to sign for the package! For the Everything But the Booze Box, someone does not need to sign for the package.
I gifted three months of the Everything Box subscription to my dad for Father's Day. He has loved every cocktail! He tends to prefer margaritas and tequila cocktails but he enjoyed trying new, different concoctions. The box arrives nicely organized with everything needed to create the cocktail - beverage components and the recipe. I might have to get him the same thing next Father's Day, too!
I think this gift is a fantastic idea and gifted a 6 month subscription to my husband for Father's Day. Unfortunately 2 of the 4 drinks we have received so far are chalk full of an overwhelming amount of ginger. We have enjoyed the other 2 drinks and we enjoy ginger, but these 2 drinks have been unpalatable.
I got my first box (the ginger orange with mezcal and gin martinis) the drinks were easy to prepare and, frankly, the best part was that despite the fact that it was 7pm, I was in my PJs, in my livingroom, toddlers finally put to sleep, taking a sip of the drink (out of a plastic cup instead of a proper glass) transported me IMMEDIATELY back to my previous life as a decked out, dressed up, single twenty/thirty-something with a social life at the cool & and amazingly interesting bars and restaurants of NYC. I never thought I'd have that experience again--of having a really, really interesting and delicious drink just because I felt like it--and yet, here I was, re-experiencing my previous life in the comfort of my own home, without even having to hail a cab, hire a babysitter. Really fun and tasty. Thank you!
Purchased this as a trial because I was bored with the same old thing. My first box was really yummy. Never would have ordered this drink in any venue but having it delivered, gave it a try. Super happy to have broken out of my routine. If I had to purchase all this separately, I would probably have spent more but I never would actually have done it. Will be making the drinks for the Christmas party coming up.
Received 4 samplers of Jim Beam, a small bitters bottle, a syrup, a seasonal tasting mixer and spice for topping. It was suppose to make 4 drinks and it did. Will be subscribing to more months now as my trial was a huge hit!
I've only received 1 box so far and it was the harvest punch. I've had 3 of the 4 so far and it was quite good.
Good enough that I'll be looking into cocktails I can make myself at home.
My exboyfriend was a bartender and I loved having random drinks made - but when we broke up I realized I probably won't use the ingredients for most of the weird drinks. That's why I love this box! It comes with everything I need to make the drinks (including alcohol so I can try new types without being worried I'll have to eventually finish it).
These boxes also make great gifts - I just gave my most recent one to my dad for Fathers Day because I forgot to get him a gift and it happened to come in the mail. He was ecstatic! The alcohol included definitely makes this box worth it!
Terrific Blueberry Gin drink, my favorite part of your crate is that you include the liquor, and not the produce.
Such a fun box to receive. Can make a different cocktail every month which is a great way to learn about different liquors and ways to use them! The packaging is really great-everything came very neatly and their flavors are delicious. I also reached out to their customer service and they responded right way. This would be a great gift!
This box is wonderful! I got it as a gift for my step mom & she loved it! Everything is packaged nicely & she said she has been enjoying the drink creations!
This is awesome!! I can’t wait to get it every month and try the new drinks!! A couple of the drinks are my favorites now!!

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!]"
