We have spoilers for the October 2021 Shaker & Spoon box! The box theme is Mezcalloween Box!
Something’s out there. Lurking around the shadow-laden Oaxacan fields is a sensational spirit that showcases the earthy taste of agave with a devilishly roasted, smoky edge, and it’s ready to pounce during your upcoming month of thrilling, chilling cocktail glass–filling.
Sure, there’s nothing particularly spooky about the dependability and deliciousness of mezcal—but October nights certainly have a way of inspiring the eerie, and we think that mezcal’s looming savory undercurrent makes it an ideal choice to dabble in the dance between black magic and the light and bright. So down to the crypt we go, where pleasing potions from three of our favorite bewitching bartenders are bubbling over and bound for bottling.
Sign up today (if you dare!) and a delivery of wicked mezcal-themed goodness will arrive at your door. No tricks, just tasty, spirited treats! Subscribe now through September 30th (while supplies last!) to get the Mezcalloween Box—it’s slated to ship the week of October 4th.
Listen closely to Sother Teague’s mesmerizing chant of Zingiberaceae, taste the quenching colada in which floral turmeric anchors vibrant coconut and pineapple with daring depth, and soon your eyelids will be getting very, very . . . buoyant! This Halloween, take your mezcal to Maui with the sublime Spellbinder in two possible ways—shaken or blended! Read more…
And if you’re looking for your very own Lewis bag and mallet to achieve that perfectly crushed ice, we’ve got a set for you on the Make More Store!
Follow El Alma, whose name means “the soul,” to Jules Snow’s inviting intersection of two different classic cocktail formulas. There’s the mezcal and fresh-lime base of a margarita and the ginger kick and effervescence of a mule, all combining with juicy peach for an enchanting and spirit-satisfying great time.
Chris Elford’s cauldron is overflowing with this old fashioned that melds mezcal with a bit of well-seasoned boldness. The Mystic Brew ascends to a faraway, robust realm with Angostura bitters and a spiced cold brew syrup that flavors rich coffee with star anise, cardamom, and clove. Swirl it up and complete this official cocktail of the otherworldly with two very mezcal-friendly garnishes: an uplifting spritz of grapefruit oil and a smoldering cinnamon stick.
