We have spoilers for the June 2022 Shaker & Spoon box! The box theme is The Vodka Brunch Box !
Cock-a-doodle-do! Rise, shine, and start feeling fine, because next month, cocktail o’clock might just land a little earlier than usual.
When the sun rises on a brunch-less day, so many hours must pass before shaking or stirring a cocktail gets jotted down on the to-do list. But for those who are lucky enough to occasionally partake in such casual carousing, there’s no better way to shake off the days prior and set a spirited tone for the one stretching out ahead.
Over the years, our boxes have featured countless drinks to enjoy while twirling away in the twilight hours—so now it’s time for a slight change: three options primed to become the belles of your next brunch.
Our bartenders have taken three favorites of the format—coffee, mimosa, and a Bloody Mary—and spun them into creative, memorable, and flavor-packed versions with the best spirit for ably stretching into many different directions: vodka!
More nocturnally inclined? Worry not. Just like Christmas in July, brunch for dinner proves that sometimes the incongruous can be exciting. Sign up one and all alongside us noontime revelers for The Vodka Brunch Box and you’ll discover a magical cocktail menu—perhaps right smack in the midday! Subscribe now through May 31st to get yours—shipping the week of June 6th.
It’s hard to get simpler than the one-two makeup of a mimosa, whose composition inspired Kapri Robinson as she strove for crisp and clean flavors in her refreshing Blood & Sage. She found both the citrus and bubbles in a bracing blood orange ginger ale that vitalizes this springtime combo of vodka and perfectly seasonal herbed sage syrup.
What happens when Sother Teague gets his hands on a towering titan of vodka cocktails? A marvelous Mary that’s miles away from the ordinary! It’s bright and refreshing and yet has savory surprises at every turn.
For The Weekender, Sother developed a flavor-packed secret weapon: a garden-infused vinegar medley that joins apple cider vinegar and tomato vinegar and infuses the blend with horseradish, garlic, and black pepper. Roll it with vodka and an umami-rich, vegetarian-friendly, tomato-vine-ripe base from Q Mixers—with space to spare, if you like, for our favorite local hot sauce (Kimchili included) or one of your own.
And for the garnish? Why choose just one when you can enjoy “everything”—a finishing-touch seasoning blend that travels a short distance from the bagel right to this Bloody!
After that steamy morning mug of reanimation, or even in place of it at the brunch table, look forward to this chilled cocktail that applies an Italian-accented touch to those all-important beans.
The Slow Rush, from Chelsea Santos, is a breezier version of the typically buzzy coffee old fashioned, thanks to the mellowing flavors of cherry and vanilla. From there, chocolate mole bitters and some liqueur-style bitterness from the orange spritz syrup swing in for a treat akin to a vodka sundae for your next round of Sundays!
