We have spoilers for the February 2022 Shaker & Spoon box! The box theme is What’ll It Be? Whisk(e)y Box!
We heart tequila! And did you know that this agave spirit gets bolder than blanco and even richer than reposado? Añejo is the name and “gracing cocktails that are friendly to all seasons with an amber look and a more robust take on the tequila taste” is its game.
We’re ready to tackle this tasty spirit in a season-defyingly sassy way by using musical inspirations to celebrate its irresistible intersection of light and darkness. It’s winter, after all, but even if your neighborhood’s far too nippy to inspire outright jubilation, grab your Añejo, Let’s Go! Box and let a little bit of song and dance into your soul!
Subscribe now through January 31st (while supplies last!) to get the Añejo, Let’s Go! Box—it’s slated to ship the week of February 7th.
Donny Clutterbuck makes easy work of channeling musical inspirations into his cocktail creations—like this bubbly breath of fresh air, Feather Billet, which he crafted while grooving to the band PREP.
His refreshing blend is a two-step between the lush, dried fruit-sweetness of añejo and the bright, floral, and spice stylings of grapefruit soda, rose syrup, and chocolate mole bitters, teaching a whole new set of peppy dance moves to the crowd-pleasing Paloma.
It takes a tuned-in ’tender to serve and dazzle the kinetic music-loving crowds of Austin, TX, from behind the bar—as evidenced by The Beat Goes On, a fan-favorite reissue.
In this amped old fashioned (or hot toddy, if you wish), Jessica Sanders summons the spirit of the capital city into a mojo syrup layered with complexity from spices like vanilla, ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon and pairs it with a blend of orange and aromatic bitters to turn the dial way up on your añejo!
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.
When the horns of Analise Stettner’s Tijuana Brass start ringing out, you know you’re in for a good time.
Bask in an exploratory jam session as a large coconut-water ice cube blends with deeply flavorful añejo and aromatic cinnamon demerara syrup and a bitters medley that includes notes of long pepper and hibiscus, weaving in and out of themes and gradually changing the mystical melodies of the drink as it settles right alongside you.
