What Do Our Unique Cocktail Kits Delivered Include?

Liquor: Send Cocktail Making Gifts

What goes into a cocktail kit gift? Well, the basics of a cocktail are pretty simple. Take any base spirits, add great ingredients like bitters, fruit, syrups, and top it off with garnishing. Let’s look at it this way. Every cocktail has these three elements:

The Core: This is the primary flavor of your cocktail, depending on the base of spirit or liquor that you have chosen. 

Modifiers: This is anything that modifies the core base spirit. For example this can be something that enhances the sweetness or the acidity or both. Think of liqueurs, sweeteners, cocktail mixers, citrus, and bitters here. 

Garnishing: This is the final touch where you add an additional dimension to your cocktail with garnishes that engage the senses. 

If you are looking for a cocktail gift set with alcohol, your search stops here. When you select your cocktail cocktail gift basket, we can work with you for the kind of liquor you would want. 

At 180 Drinks, we also include recipes along with your cocktail gift set so that your giftee can appreciate the finer nuances of making a cocktail. View our drink gifts to learn more about our cocktail bar delivery service.

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables For Your Cocktail Gift Box

Often we complement your cocktail kit gift set with our seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables as a drink ingredient or tasty snack.

At 180 Drinks, we source organic fruits and vegetables. This is a lovely touch that can make your giftee’s day!

Cocktail Making Gifts: Add Fresh Herbs And Spices

We can include fresh herbs and spices to impart maximum flavor and echo the ingredients of your drink both aromatically and visually. 

Our cocktail kit gift comes with plenty of unique, tasteful accoutrements that make some of the best gifts for cocktail lovers!

Citrus Fruits For Your Cocktail Gift Set

Many cocktail recipes call for the juice or peel of lemons, limes, oranges, or even grapefruits. It’s actually hard to think of a cocktail that’s not made complete with citrus fruits. 

The tartness or sweet acids in citrus fruits contrast the alcohol in the cocktail. 

The result is a cocktail that springs to life, balancing all the different notes in the drink. We highly recommend adding citrus fruits to your cocktail gift set as it would make for a wonderful, thoughtful addition.

Sweeteners For Use In Cocktail Making Gifts

A sweetener of some type is almost always used in making a cocktail. 

Sometimes, you can also use pre-made sugar syrup. This simple sugar syrup works well, but we can also add honey or maple syrup to your gift. 

For our cocktail gifts, we use syrups that are free from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. 

Bitters For Your Cocktail Kit Gift Set

Bitters add complexity and dimension to any cocktail. They come in small bottles and just a dash of bitters is often enough for any cocktail. Most bitters are a blend of botanicals and spices, resulting in complex flavor profiles. 

Bitters add sparks of flavor to some of the best cocktails like the Old Fashioned. Angostura Aromatic Bitters is one of the most commonly used bitters, and we feature it in our gift set. 

However, you can add additional flavors and depth with just about any bitters. View our cocktail gift sets to learn more about the bitters included to complete your drinking experience.

Garnishes When You Send Cocktail Gift

The cocktail often is not quite a cocktail without a garnish. 

Some of the most common garnishes included with your cocktail gift are:

  • Celery sticks
  • Carrot sticks
  • Orange peels
  • Grated cinnamon
  • Cherries
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Stuffed olives
  • Lemon wedges

This way even if your giftee doesn’t want to go to the bar, they can create a bar experience right at home.

Ice For Your Cocktail Gift Set

The cocktail almost always serves as a relaxing drink. It’s meant to be sipped and savored slowly as an experience. Adding poor quality can ruin this experience, turning the drink into a watery mess. Avoid small ice cubes in your cocktail. 

We can add in large ice cubes that melt slowly, allowing the flavors and aromas of the drink to reach its fullest expression.

Glassware Gifts For Cocktail Lovers

A traditional cocktail glass should comfortably hold large ice cubes and the liquor. There are many varieties of cocktail glasses, but some of the most common cocktail glasses include the rocks glass or the lowballs glass. 

We can add a touch of class to your drinks gift with a special cocktail glass set. 

Cocktail Gift Basket Ideas

At 180 Drinks, we want to make the process of gifting hassle-free. At every step, we work with you to curate the best ideas for your cocktail gift. We also include recipe cards and an instructional video that guides the giftee through the drink building process. 

Creating tasty cocktails is no longer a skill that requires a mixologist. With a little bit of craft and the right ingredients, you can set up your own cocktail bar right at home. View our products to learn more about the best home cocktail set today.

  • Fruit chocolates with Mezcal cocktails
