We have spoilers for the June 2021 Shaker & Spoon box! It will include:
With Beale Street, Music City, and the Great Smoky Mountains on our minds, we’re waltzing into summer with a storied spirit, the humble beginnings of which went on to take the world by storm. And we promise, wherever the season finds you, with Tennessee whiskey in your glass, you’ll be feelin’ finer than frog’s hair.
We’ve got two Tennessean tour guides eager to bring you the beautiful vibes of their home state by serving up its legendary spirit in imaginative, summer-ready ways. Light your torches and kick back on your porches, because the Out to Tennessee Box is coming right up for some warm and hazy Southern-style sippin’!

Second to sunscreen, the essential you’ll need to thrive in the high temps and bright rays will be a tall, sparkling glass of Hiwassee River Water. Nneka Ijeoma crafted this cocktail with summer fun in mind, name checking a Tennessee waterway known for fishing, rafting, and other rousing recreation. Grab your spot on the banks and be sure to bring this whiskey and tonic, with a nudge of lemongrass and punch of cooling honeydew.
At the heart of your upcoming Summer Fling is a shrub with great depth of flavor from earthy, rich beets and fragrant rosemary. The color is a resplendent tone of red and the taste quite tempting when brilliantly balanced by Tennessee whiskey, sparkling water, and orange bitters. The effect is surprisingly stimulating and a supremely cooling and crushable way to drink your veggies. Swipe right on this peppy refresher from Samir Osman, and prime yourself for a second . . . third . . . and fourth date!
Just like its musical influence, the cocktail Pancho and Lefty (remix) is a memorable study of two sides. In the glass, you’ll find that both teams within Tennessee whiskey—the faint char and sweet—aren’t in a duel, but a dance made even more delicious by another of Samir Osman’s recipes.
He’s turned the volume up on both, with smoked pecan wood coalescing with the spirit’s other wood elements, and bright peach and maple syrup lifting up its notes of vanilla and caramel. In the end, it’s a warming and summery taste—akin to a grilled peach—and an easygoing companion to happily bring back to camp.
