I have a really exciting post for this week! We got together with our friends at Groovy Guy Gifts and tested out their cocktail kit, and I want to share our experience with you! Groovy Guy Gifts is an online store that sells quality gifts for men. From gifts for the grill to classy, masculine gym bags, to barware – Groovy Guy Gifts has something for any of the guys in your life. Since we’re always on the lookout for good gifts for our grooms and groomsmen, we wee vey excited to try out The Means Of Mixology cocktail kit.
This gift set includes a mason jar that can be customized with the letter of your choice, a shot glass with measurements, a strainer, muddler, a bar spoon, and tongs. I decided to get my family together and make a summer mocktail, and we had a great time doing it! We made our own twist on a raspberry spritzer we found on The Taylor House, and it was delicious! We tried making this mocktail a few different ways to try and utilize all parts of the kit.
The first try, we muddled the strawberries, added berry juice, lemon lime soda, the muddled strawberries, sliced strawberries, sliced lemons, ice, a little lemon juice, and mint to the mason jar. We shook it up, strained out the liquid and added more sliced fruit. Delicious! Put a spring of mint on top and enjoy!
The second try, we put lots of lemon juice, sliced fruit, mint, lemon lime soda, and berry juice in the jar. We stirred it up using the bar spoon, strained the liquid, added more sliced fruit, ice, and a sprig of mint. We all preferred this option as the extra lemon added a little more kick!
We have nothing but praise for Groovy Guy Gifts bar utensils! Everything was easy to use, easy to clean, and worked very well! The real test was the strainer, I was afraid it would spew the mixture all over the table. The mixture drained directly into glass, no mess at all. Head over to the website to get yours (or something else!)
