What Do Our Unique Cocktail Kits Include?

DIY Cocktail Kits With Alcohol

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

1. The Core: This is the primary flavor of your cocktail, depending on the base of spirit or liquor that you have chosen. Our cocktail kits include alcohol, and we procure the liquor for our cocktail boxes from the LCBO.

2. 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, herbs, sweeteners, cocktail mixers, citrus, and bitters here.  These modifiers make a unique gift experience for cocktail lovers. 

3. Garnishing: This is the final touch where you add an additional dimension to your cocktail with garnishes that engage the senses. We source the garnishes for our cocktails kits locally from Toronto. 

At 180 Drinks, we also include recipes along with your cocktail kit so that you can appreciate the finer nuances of making a cocktail. View our drink kits above to learn more about our cocktail box delivery service for Ontario, Canada. 

Fresh Ingredients For Your Cocktail Gift Box

Often we complement your cocktail kit gift box with our seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh ingredients make all difference. 

At 180 Drinks, we source organic fruits and vegetables. This is a lovely touch that makes for the best cocktail boxes!

Toronto Cocktail Kits: Add Fresh Herbs And Spices

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

Our DIY cocktail kits come with plenty of unique, tasteful accoutrements that make for the best gifts for cocktail lovers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ontario!

Citrus Fruits For Your Cocktail Box

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. Our cocktail boxes include fresh citrus fruits.

Sweeteners For Use In Cocktail Kits

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 cocktail. Other times a liqueur or vermouth can become the the cocktail sweetener. 

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

Bitters For Your Home Cocktail Kit Gift Set

Bitters add complexity and dimension to any alcohol cocktail kit. 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 flavour to some of the best cocktail kits. Angostura Aromatic Bitters is one of the most commonly used bitters, and we feature it in our gift set. 

However, you can add additional flavours and depth with just about any bitters.

Bitters help to complete your cocktail kit home delivery. View our cocktail gift sets above 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. The garnish helps to engage the sense of sight and smell to influence the overall perception of the cocktail. 

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

  • Orange peels
  • Grated cinnamon
  • Cherries
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Olives
  • Lemon wedges
  • Bitters

This way even if your giftee doesn’t want to go to the bar, they can create a bar experience  with a home cocktail kit delivery. 

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 ice can ruin this experience, turning the drink into a watery mess. Avoid small ice cubes in your cocktail. 

With our cocktail gift sets, you can add large ice cube trays to create ice that melts slowly. This allows the flavours and aromas of the drink to reach its fullest expression.

Cocktail Making Kit With Glasses

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 cocktail making kit by adding glassware specific to the cocktails being made.

Cocktail Gift Box 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 box. We also include recipe cards 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 and tools, you can set up your own cocktail bar right at home. View our products to learn more about the best cocktail home kits.
