The folks at Top Shelf won’t let a little pandemic rain on their party. Their Bartenders Box allows people to enjoy delicious cocktails with friends and family at home. Choose from four themed cocktail creations or pick your poison of ingredients (alcohol not included), and spoil your guests with your mixology skills—QR codes with the boxes offer access to how-to videos. Winter boxes include the decadent Après Buzz (rum, honey-cocoa syrup, TBBx Oat Milk, TBBx Cold Brew, rhubarb bitters, and cocoa nibs to garnish), Raspenglow (vodka, raspberry syrup, black tea, fresh lemon juice, plum bitters, dehydrated lemon, and mint sprig garnishes), Mid-Winter’s Daisy (reposado tequila, fresh lemon juice, cinnamon agave syrup, grapefruit bitters, and cinnamon stick garnish), and Epoch Sour (local gin, concord grape syrup, fresh lemon juice, egg white, red grapes, and lemon swath). $45 per box includes a specialized array of citrus, herbs, spices, prepared garnishes, handcrafted syrups, premium bitters, and more (serves 8).
