We have spoilers for the January 2022 Shaker & Spoon box! The box theme is What’ll It Be? Whisk(e)y Box!
For next month’s adventure, the choice is yours between three styles of whisk(e)y as a base and two different builds (either hot or cold) which, for the most expeditious imbibers, could lead to eighteen(!) potential combinations. All done with that math? Then onto the deliciousness!
Set out the What’ll It Be? Whisk(e)y Box with your favorite style of whisk(e)y and ask yourself the all-important questions: Is a winter warmer what I’m after, or is a more customary and cooling sipper going to suit the night?
And thanks to our three bartenders, not one but two riveting and seasonable recipes are coming your way for each cocktail. And what a tremendous whisk(e)y region- and temperature-traversing time it’ll be! Subscribe now through December 31st (while supplies last!) to get the What’ll It Be? Whisk(e)y Box—it’s slated to ship the week of January 10th.
Inspired by a Gaelic river charmer, The Winter Water Sprite from Annie Pierce tempts with the rich, natural brown sugar–sweetness of dates and figs, with a magical finishing touch of anise-like fennel for good measure.
Stir on ice and sit back with a sturdy sip of an old fashioned, or choose to warm it up and watch chamomile-infused whiskey take flight on clouds of aromatic steam.
If you’re wandering the trails out in the winter wild, be on the lookout and don’t miss the radiantly red Rough Diamond.
For its rich color, Nicholas Hogan’s steamy toddy or frosty old fashioned relies on delicate rosehip and bold blackberries and currants for a soothing sensation of floral and fruity flavor. And the exploration of the outdoors continues with orange bitters and a hint of Douglas fir for a sipper most befitting of a snowy scene.
Hitting many of the same bracing beats as the classic Penicillin, Christopher Frierson’s Dublin After Dark hot toddy soothes as a warm mix of whisk(e)y, ginger-turmeric syrup, and fresh lemon, but then miraculously ramps up to enliven an evening when shaken with ice for a perky sour.
