B52 Shot + Variations - November 2021

Put your spoon-wielding finesse to the test with these layered winter drinks. Keewi shows you the classic B-52 and gives recipes for three other variations. You can use either the Five Farms Irish Cream or Bailey's and both of these cream liqueurs are wonderful to have around for the holiday and winter season. For the B-52, you'll need an orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Prunier or use your berry liqueurs (cassis, framboise or pama). Then try the substitutions of amaretto, absinthe or whiskey to keep exploring fun, layered cocktails. Your friends will be so impressed!

Evil Queen - October 2021

Happy Halloween! Your October kit contained something new and interesting -- Butterfly Pea Flower Tea! This is a fun tool to create a beautiful purple drink to get you in the spirit of Halloween (or really anytime you need a snazzy colorful cocktail). It's virtually flavorless, so you are just using it to achieve the brilliant violet color. Simply plan a few hours ahead by making some butterfly pea tea with the tea bags provided in your kit (you can order more on Amazon) and then chilling it in the fridge so that you're ready to add it to the drink when needed.
