Sneak Peek

September 2020's Kanpai! Box

The official toast for September is Kanpai! And—since the word translates to “empty your glass”—our imaginative bartenders devised their cocktails to make that an enjoyably effortless task for you. These recipes traverse a bit more territory than the noble, unadorned highball, but our aim to honor the clean taste of Japanese whisky is all the same. Join us for this journey to Japan, and let’s discover our next favorite whisky together!

Questions

Q: Are you able to order the glasses shown with the cocktail?Asked by Julie H., June 2020

No. They do sell some bar sets / tools on their site, but no glasses.

Q: Is there a reason this box doesn’t have the “gorge as a gift” subscription option?Asked by Jenny D., December 2019

Shaker & Spoon answered...December 2019

Our gift subscriptions are set up differently from the ones offered on the
Cratejoy Marketplace, so they are only available on our site, because the
Marketplace is not able to offer them at this time.

The way our gift system works is that we send your giftee an email—on
whatever day you wish—to notify them of your gift (with a personal message
from you), and then they'll be prompted to claim their gift, creating their
account and providing their preferred shipping address.

We do things this way for a few important reasons. Firstly, our boxes are
perishable and need to be refrigerated on the day that they arrive, so we
want the people receiving our boxes to know to expect them. And secondly,
people are sometimes quite particular about the liquor they want and don't
want...

Q: If I can’t find Pisco what can I useAsked by Malena K., September 2019

Shaker & Spoon answered...September 2019

Grappa is the most comparable thing to pisco flavor-wise! Just make sure
it's around 40% ABV.

Copper & Kings and a few other domestic distilleries also have some unaged
grape distillate (sometimes places will call it "white brandy") that will
work.

You could try white tequila or grappa. We had to ask our liquor store to order it for us since they don’t normally carry it. We’d never heard of Pisco before receiving our S&S box. It’s a smooth and pleasant liquor. Really glad we tried it, we ended up buying another bottle.

by Michelle, September 2019

I asked the same question! I was told to go with an aged rum.
Aged something like 5–8 years. :)

Q: Does the box recommend a specific brand for the featured spirit of the month? Asked by Adrienne P., August 2020

They have a " Have on Hand" section of their website, which makes recommendations of what to have on hand for the upcoming box. This section frequently has one or two specific brands that would work well the the recipes, as well as recommended tolls and glassware.

Our son gave us a gift subscription and then renewed it when we said how much we enjoyed it. We have recommended the monthly box to so many people and intend to give subscriptions as gifts to friends. Not only are the boxes well crafted and details, but the company has amazing customer service. We have done an awful lot of subscription boxes ranging from wine, clothes, and personal items to snacks and bespoke gifts. This is the first one that we have wanted to stick with!

Highly recommend this box!

I've actually ordered two boxes, so this review counts for both of them. They are gifts for my parents and my BF and her husband. THEY LOVE THEM! I have received nothing but raves for these boxes...now some drinks were more popular than others, that I will say. However, considering the age difference in the couples, finding a gift that works for different generations with varying tastes...this worked! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! If I personally drank hard liquor, I'd order it for myself just based on how much they love it ;-)

I suspected a cocktail sub box from New York might result in an experience akin to reading a high fashion magazine and I wasn't disappointed. From specialized recipes to flavors completely new to me to the delightful bottles with all the exotic syrups and drops, the box felt like a very fancy pick-me-up that I needed. The recipe cards include a glossary and make drink mixing easy to understand, fun, and quick. Each box has a theme surrounding one particular type of alcohol with three different drinks to mix. Some of the drinks are a little too flavorful for my underdeveloped palette, but the whole experience has overall been a gastronomical delight.

January 2019's Brandy, She's So Fine Box

Our expedition into Canadian territory required just two things: a bottle of the country’s rye whisky, and a thirst for creative cocktails.

August 2019's Pisco Fever Box

August 2019's Pisco Fever Box

You may be familiar with pisco’s subtle floral and fruity flavors and the traditional Punch and Sour to which it lends its name, but with this box, we had a few other ideas on how to keep it flowing this August. Yes, we came down with another case of Pisco Fever right on time for summer—and the only known cure is relaxation with three refreshing cocktails.

September 2019's Scotchtember Box

September 2019's Scotchtember Box

Scotchtember: a brand new month for your calendar, and our chance to show off and celebrate Scotch in a new light. It was an expedition for a month-long discovery of some all-new ways to enjoy Scotch, featuring Caer Maiko Ferguson’s Japanese-inspired highball, Robert Sickler’s rich, decadent concoction, and Aaron DeFeo’s floral, spiced, and herbal old fashioned!

For November’s box, we featured cocktails that celebrated all things natural and wild.

December 2019's Party Punch: Bourbon & Bubbles Box

Just in the nick of time, Party Punch: Bourbon & Bubbles made its way through the workshop to arrive for holiday celebrations. With rich, oaky bourbon and effervescent sparkling wine as their foundation, the three classy and nuanced concoctions soared from there, taking punch's traditional five segments of flavor and expanding on them in delightfully surprising ways.
