Order by June 11th to get this box!
Q: There is no alcohol included, correct? Is there an option to get alcohol?Asked by Terry M., December 2022
Our boxes do not include alcohol for a host of reasons, and if you're interested we'd love for you to read our blog post found on our site titled "Why No Alcohol?" We get this question a lot, and we do understand! The short answer is that liquor laws are complicated and vary by state, and shipping would become quite expensive. We thought it'd be better to share our unique recipes and ingredients while allowing folks to purchase the liquor locally according to their budget and preferred brands. It also tends to be the easiest ingredient to find, and usually, only one bottle is needed :) This also helps you expand your home bar, so you can impress all your guests with your mixology skills!
Q: I know June is Vodka what are the next few months of alcohol? Is there a place we can go look and check out?Asked by Patty R., May 2022
There actually isn't a place to learn this ahead of time, and that's by design! We like to keep an air of mystery surrounding our boxes until it's time for the big reveal. Where's the fun without a little intrigue, right? :) But we will announce our boxes one at a time, and the announcement will occur several weeks before the box is due to ship. So this should give you plenty of time to prepare, and also to decide if you'd rather skip the box!
Q: Is anything perishable? This is a Christmas present, and I want to know if I can put it under the tree or need to stick it in the fridgeAsked by Grace A., December 2021
Some boxes include fresh lemons or limes, so be sure to remove those before putting it under the tree!
Q: Can you get a 3-4 month subscription? Or say 4 x a year?Asked by Lynn H., November 2021
We don't offer this kind of subscription, but we do offer a month-to-month, 3, 6, and 12-month subscription term length. And the great thing about all of our plans is that you remain in total control of your experience! You can always elect to skip any boxes that you'd rather not receive, and that way can space out your shipments however you see fit. Since each box revolves around a different spirit, we find it works best to tailor your preferences based on the boxes as they're revealed, rather than being set to arrive in particular months of the year.
Gave this as a gift and got to try some of the cocktails. The cachaca box was really fun! Really interesting combinations and usually some ingredients leftover for another batch of cocktails.
You will not find recipes like these on Pinterest. I love that I don’t have to curate the obscure ingredients myself. Very happy with this gift!
So here was the coolest thing about this-
These were all alcohol that we wouldn’t normally drink. The only draw back is that the ingredients are so very specialized I can’t just run out to the store and pick them up. Still it was a fun experiment each month.
I enjoy cocktails, but have near-zero experience making them myself, so Shaker & Spoon is perfect. They provide everything but the alcohol, and they provide helpful recommendations for which is best.
Each box is themed. Last month was rye whisky, and included syrup, bitters, a spice mix, and a mixer to create three different cocktails, with four of each type. Perfect gift for a couple.
We did have a broken bottle of syrup in one box, but we contacted Shaker & Spoon and they responded same-day promising a replacement.
Note: Take this review with a grain of salt: I'm writing it while tipsy. 🍹
I got this for my grandson for Christmas last year. He has looked forward to it every single month. I am very pleased with it.
I bought a 6 month subscription for my husband. We tried the recipes in the first two shipments, and they were all gross. Weird flavor combinations and often sickeningly sweet. It’s become a joke in our house to just get ‘em down, like medicine. He hasn’t even bothered to open the last two shipments. Worst gift ever. 😕
We're so sorry to hear that the gift has missed the mark for you, Jamie! And I hope that we can still help :) We understand that everyone's tastes are different, and we want you to be able to tailor the plan to suit your needs. That's why we allow you to skip or switch your box in any given month, and all you'd need to do is write to us directly with that request. If you didn't know this was an option, I hope it'll improve your experience! That said, we also completely understand that the service won't fit everyone, and we thank you so much for giving us a try :) Please don't hesitate to contact our customer experience team if there's any...
A great start with American GIns and the ingredients to fashion a fun cocktail or 4! Look forward to see what is next - great packaging and info/directions - this was a gift from my son and daughter-in-law to celebrate my 65th birthday - a great surprise and I will definitely continue the subscription.
Thank you for your kind review, Mike. We're thrilled that the Begin Again box was right up your alley :) Can't wait to keep sharing more delicious offerings with you!
I love the idea, unfortunately none of the drink ingredients were anything my husband would try with me so we haven’t even tried one drink. For that reason, my money was wasted. The packaging and fun of opening the box was fantastic! I will be trying the drinks, alone.
Thank you for your review, Melissa! It's never our intent to stick you with a box you can't enjoy, but we definitely understand that everyone's preferences may be different. Moving forward, I hope that you won't hesitate to write to us so that our customer experience team can help! We could have assisted you with return information, and allow you to choose something that both of you could savor together :) Hopefully we'll get another opportunity to wow you in the future, and thank you again!
All looks wonderful. We have not used the ingredients yet as we have a planned gathering in a few weeks.
We hope that your gathering was a huge success, Kathi! And we thank you sincerely for taking the time to review :)
Though its versatility allows for year-round enjoyment, gin’s profile of natural flavors has a special way of complementing the cold with woodsy roots, spices, and barks, bright citrus peels, and, most fittingly, piney juniper. We’ve got drinks to welcome you in from the inhospitable outdoors and ones that’ll make you thrilled to not have left in the first place. Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, your home is about to shine brightest with this box!

We're welcoming spring and the rebirth of creativity with the Steeped in Vodka 2 Box, our tribute to this versatile spirit. In this sequel we bring back a not-so-secret weapon that makes the spirit’s vigorous voice truly sing: tea! Whether by infusion, syrup, or bitters, a spot of tea graces these three vibrant vodka cocktails (a much-beloved re-release and two fresh faces) with earthy citrus or floral notes for a daring but quite darling springtime soiree.
Rum is many things to many people: a portable slice of island spirit, a considerable player in the distinguished canon of classics, or simply a nuanced nip to sip neat. Certainly Rum’s the Word for all of the above, but there’s always room for more. Sign up today for dazzling days in May and three new takes on this sun-ready spirit!
The entire world knows this state's whiskey well—but with many more distillers being added to the marquee, an inspired revival is underway.

At the Copa, Copacabana, it’s said that music and passion are always the fashion, but did you know that the drinks are top-notch, too?

Join us for some much needed R&R (reveling and refreshment)! It's time to chill with three awesome cocktails that’ll bring the beach within reach.
This sequel to our original 2019 Negroni Box is primed to join the ranks of valiant variations on the much-loved Negroni formula. The gin and Campari–based cocktails in the Negroni 2 Box (no vermouth required for these recipes), from three Shaker & Spoon star alumni, get to the very heart of the cocktail by either exploring Italian inspirations or intrepidly spanning the globe from there!

To get straight to the core of the starring element of our Fruits of Fall: American Apple Brandy Box, we immediately knew the first folks to call: some of our favorite fellow NYC-based cocktail superstars. Follow us down the trail on this “Big Apple” bonanza, full of tastes tailored to the times and all the best (crisp weather, fantastic foliage, and aromatic, overworked ovens) that autumn has to offer!
Our Jolly for Gin Punch Box spotlights three punch variations featuring: a base of gin and dry sparkling wine, sensational syrups, striking sours, and surprising seasonings, all iced up and ready to serve 4–6 guests each. But of course then there’s the X factor that takes these concoctions to a much more than pentamerous place: fun, complex flavors and wide-ranging holiday inspirations. Sign up today and punch your ticket to this upcoming trio of gleeful soirees!
Set out the What’ll It Be? Whisk(e)y Box with your favorite style of whisk(e)y and ask yourself the all-important questions: Is a winter warmer what I’m after, or is a more customary and cooling sipper going to suit the night? And thanks to our three bartenders, not one but two riveting and seasonable recipes are coming your way for each cocktail. The choice is yours between three styles of whisk(e)y as a base, and two different builds (either hot or cold)!
Did you know that this agave spirit from the great land of Mexico gets bolder than blanco and even richer than reposado? We’re ready to tackle it in a season-defyingly sassy way by using musical inspirations to celebrate its irresistible intersection of light and darkness. Even if your neighborhood’s far too nippy to inspire outright jubilation, grab yourself an Añejo, Let’s Go! Box and let the tunes, tequila, and good times melt away those winter blues!
