The local bartending service Top Shelf has created a nifty new product called the Bartender’s Box that provides all the ingredients (except liquor) to allow folks like me to create world-class cocktails at home. It’s a great concept, especially during a pandemic when bars are closed.
Each Bartender’s Box is delivered to your door (pickup is also available with a 10% discount) and comes complete with house-made mixers, freshly squeezed or pressed juices, garnishes, and a detailed video tutorial on how to make the cocktail. There’s even a convenient, built-in easel to hold the recipe cards. With a variety of cocktail options to choose from, each box offers a unique mixology experience.
There is a range of Bartender’s Boxes to choose from, each built around a particular liquor, such as gin, rum, tequila, whiskey and vodka.
The box contains everything you need except the booze to make eight cocktails, priced at $44.50 per box. I selected the rum Bartender’s Box, which came with freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly squeezed lime juice, pressed pineapple juice, handcrafted Orgeat (which is an Almond and Orange Blossom Simple Syrup), fresh pineapple wedges, maraschino cherries, and even cocktail umbrellas to garnish my tiki drinks.
For sure, I’ll be ordering additional Bartender’s Boxes in the near future. They make at-home bartending a snap.
