Ready just in time for the festive season ahead, The Cocktail Man has undergone a packaging re-design and it is looking beautiful! The box now appears to be slightly bigger than before and features a stylish white and gold design, with a blue slip around paper cover.
If you haven’t heard of The Cocktail Man before, they are a cocktail based subscription box which sends you the main ingredients to make a different cocktail every month, so if you enjoy trying out new cocktail drinks, this is the box for you. It would also make a great gift for someone who loves a monthly tipple treat, and the quality of the products included is always of a high standard.
November’s box is themed on the cocktail Raspberry & Lavender Martini which sounds interesting! I’ve only ever had a classic martini drink in a bar before, so I’m quite excited to try some new flavours like this one out.
As you can see, the box includes an easy to follow recipe card and the contents will make a minimum of four cocktails.
In this month’s box, you’ll receive:-
- 3 x Absolut Vodka (40% vol / 50ml bottles)
- 1 x Bramley & Gage Raspberry Liqueur (18% vol / 50ml)
- 1 x The Cocktail Man’s Lavender Syrup (50ml)
- Lavender Garnish
To make the Raspberry & Lavender Martini, you simply pour all of the ingredients (amounts shown on the recipe card) into a cocktail shaker, then shake without ice for ten seconds. Once dry shaken, add cubed ice and shake again for a further ten seconds. Fine strain the ingredients into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lavender sprig. Enjoy!
This was such a delicious cocktail and one that I’d happily make again for friends and family when they come over. It was sweet, a little fruity and floral and had a nice kick from the vodka – perfect!
