Q: How many cocktails does the kit make? I know there are 4 different recipes but how many cocktails can I make with the amount of ingredients given? Asked by Rachel H., December 2022

Really enjoyed this months recipe drink “Falling Slowly” - it wasn’t too sweet and was a pleasantly refreshing fall inspired drink.

I asked that the first of these shipments be delayed until after Christmas. After a few emails I was assured that this was easily possible and first order would be shipped after the 25th. Low and behold, the first shipment has already been delivered and Christmas surprise ruined.

Love, love, love this gift! Fantastic box - thoroughly enjoyed every detail. I was especially impressed with the thoughtful garnish - which was included. We already purchased more of the sparking NA wine and mixer. Great way to get turned on to new products/vendors for those of us not imbibing. :)

It was alright, just a little on like I guess you could say sour side. I guess it just wasn't my cup and flavor. But always willing to try new things!

Raising the Bar said...Nov 04, 2022

Hi Kyra, thanks so much for the feedback! We try to balance out sweet/sour/spicy/savory, so you will definitely find different flavors to try in each kit. Cheers!

What a lovely box! In a culture that is super-saturated in alcohol, it is wonderful to have such an alternative. The boxes are always neatly organized with beautiful presentation. Shipping has always been prompt. The variety & quality of the ingredients are excellent. I would highly recommend!

September 2021 - Harvest Moon

September 2021 - Harvest Moon

As the weather turns cooler, we're gravitating towards autumnal flavors. "Harvest Moon" uses blackberry black tea as a foundation, combined with rich fig syrup, cardamom bitters, and ginger & turmeric soda. This drink is the perfect way to welcome fall.

Apple of my Chai

Apple of my Chai

Fall is officially here, and we're embracing all things autumnal. Warming chai spices blend perfectly with spiced apple syrup and the brightness of ginger shrub - shake it all up with a creamy egg white for a spicy and sweet elegant fall drink.

August 2021 - The Secret Garden

August 2021 - The Secret Garden

Herbaceous and citrusy, The Secret Garden can be enjoyed two ways - with the light taste of white peaches using the Droplet Pretty Balanced, or the refreshing crisp dryness of the Dry Botanical Bubbly Cucumber. Use whatever fresh citrus juice you have on hand. A sprig of fresh rosemary is encouraged!

Smoky Rose - February 2021 Box

Smoky Rose - February 2021 Box

One of the most exciting things about the quickly growing alcohol-free beverage space is the rise in zero-proof spirits, such as Lyre’s extensive offerings. Their American Malt has a spicy and mellow complexity which pairs beautifully with Portland Syrups’ sweet and floral Rose Cordial and smoky Lapsang Souchong tea. If you like a bit of fizz, you can top your drink off to taste with Aura Bora’s Cactus Rose sparkling water or just enjoy it on its own!

#CranberryDreams - November 2020 Box

#CranberryDreams - November 2020 Box

Inspired by the epic good vibes exuded by @420doggface208 in his viral TikTok video, this drink features Pratt Standard cranberry orange syrup as well as other autumnal flavors. The enclosed recipe card teaches you how to make an elegant and smooth eg--white based cocktail, or you can use the enclosed FeverTree club soda to make it a sparkling drink.

World on Fire - October 2020 Box

World on Fire - October 2020 Box

2020 has been nothing short of...well, a dumpster fire. Just when we think it can't get any worse, it does. This month, we're owning it and presenting a box full of fiery and smoky ingredients that pack a punch to help you cope with the flames. Stick a straw in and (stainless) steel yourself for whatever the rest of this crazy year might bring!

Tea-cher's Pet - September 2020 Box

Tea-cher's Pet - September 2020 Box

Our very first box, released September 2020. This #zeroproof drink is a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy and features flavors of fall. Six months into #theseunprecedentedtimes, we could all use a refreshing #alcoholfree drink to take the edge off. Perfect gift for that special teacher in your life or to treat yourself!

Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

Happier Hour

Happier Hour

The Happier Hour is a bright and lively thirst quencher with a sophisticated flavor profile, challenging the notion that "Happy Hour" requires the hard stuff. This drink is the perfect summer sipper with fresh and complex flavors of rhubarb, lemon balm & turmeric.

June 2021 - Lady Lavender

June 2021 - Lady Lavender

This kit was a THREE in one! With three variations, lemon pairs beautifully with lavender, offsetting the sweet herbaceous notes with tart and bright citrus.

July 2021 - MoHEATo

July 2021 - MoHEATo

We’re spicing up the the traditional Mojito with Sexy AF’s Spiced Yum - a rum-style, alcohol-free spirit - along with some heat from King Floyd’s Green Chili bitters. The perfect summer cocktail! Available as a one-time kit at weareraisingthebar.com

November 2021 - Wanderlust

November 2021 - Wanderlust

Boasting complex layers of flavors and a hint of effervescence, "Wanderlust" combines the sophisticated spiced palate of Wilderton with the fruity and tart notes of the tea and shrub. Bourbon barrel-aged syrup adds the perfect hint of sweet oakiness.
