Many of us have sat at a bar on a busy night, watching in fascination as the bartender twists and turns, stirs and muddles, pours and shakes, chats and laughs, putting out a constant stream of cocktails without hesitation. It is always fun to watch, and even more fun to imagine yourself in their position. While turning your kitchen into a place where cocktails flow freely can be a challenge, a curated box from Crafty Cocktails makes this transformation easy.
Searching for recipes, running around grabbing unusual ingredients, worrying if you are shaking the drink correctly or using the right amount of lemon juice… by the end, you barely enjoy the drink you went through so much effort to create. We at Crafty Cocktails had been through this too many times and were inspired to make it easier for everyone to enjoy a craft cocktail in the comfort of their own home. Our carefully curated boxes are full of exciting drink recipes using fun and unique ingredients, and give comprehensive, step-by-step instructions from the pros to make sure your cocktail comes out perfectly. Have a quiet night at home with a loved one, invite a couple friends over for a night of casual fun or plan a crazy cocktail extravaganza, there’s no wrong way to enjoy a Crafty Cocktail box. Just make sure to have fun while you do it! So what are you waiting for? This weekend, Make A Night In, A Night Out!

Crafty Old Fashioned
Wearing a sharp suit and drinking whiskey from a globe bar in the middle of the workday is a thing of the past, and so are properly made Old-Fashioneds. Recently, the Old Fashioned has suffered through countless and complex remakes, remixes and edits, all in an attempt to...
While lime, lemon, orange, and grapefruit all have their place among the elite of cocktail citrus, more subtle and sweet flavors in this genre tend to be not as prevalent. A prime example, the Kalamansi is well-known in South Asia, especially the Philippines, but does not...
Autumn is a magical time of year; the air is crisp and fresh, the leaves are changing, the bountiful harvests of the farms and orchids are ready to enjoy. It’s an ideal time to enjoy a cocktail that embraces the unique characteristics of this stimulating season...
This Month's spirit
This month’s box, Call Me Old Fashioned, was created using Bulleit Bourbon. A perfect mixing bourbon featuring a recipe that has been in use for 150 years, Bulleit offers a flavor profile of oak, nutmeg, maple, toffee and warm spices. Its mid-level alcohol content (40%), is well suited for cocktails, as many other stronger brands of this commonly overpowering whiskey varietal tend to mask additional flavors, rather than compliment them. Bulleit packs a flavorful punch and was an ideal choice in a box which showcases a variety of complex and unique ingredients included for your delicious at-home cocktails.Learn More →
WE HAVE ANSWERS.
Click on the questions below to see the answers.
Booze is the easiest ingredient for you to pick up at your local liquor store and the hardest element for us to ship. If we included the alcohol, the shipping costs would be astronomical and someone of legal drinking age would have to be home to sign for the package. We instead chose to focus on the harder to find, more exotic ingredients. Trust us, spending your Friday evening looking for charred cedar bitters or a kalamansi lime isn’t a lot of fun. You grab the 26oz bottle of our featured spirit and we’ll do the rest!
As is the case with any fine craft, having the right tools for the job is very important. At the very least we recommend having a proper cocktail shaker, a 1 & 2oz jigger, a muddling stick, a fine mesh strainer and a hawthorne strainer. That's why have decided to send all new customers a free bar tool kit with thier first order!
Our boxes ship out on the first Monday of each month. Our recipes and feature spirit change monthly so we need time to source our new ingredients and curate our next box offering. Typically, you will see your Crafty box on your doorstep in 1-3 days after we ship. Our past boxes are available immediately to ship in our Shop + section
Not a problem! Since we don’t include the booze our boxes don’t require a signature. Your Crafty box will be on your doorstep, anxiously awaiting your arrival.
All of our subscription packages are pre-paid and will auto-renew on the 15th of each month. For example, if you ordered a 3-month subscription on June 5th, you would receive our July, August & September boxes and your subscription would renew on September 15th. If you are on a month to month plan, we will send you our new box on the first Monday of each month and you will be billed on the 15th of each new month.
Sure! Skipping a box is easy. You have full control of this in your customer account. Just log in an pause, skip or cancel as you see fit. Your subscription will not auto-renew until all of the boxes on your purchased subscription package have shipped. We do urge customers to give each of our featured boxes a chance. a Crafty Cocktails box subscription is all about education in the world of cocktail creation, and it is very hard to learn new things if you don’t step outside your comfort zone. We strongly encourage you to make your cocktails with the recommended spirit for the month, even if you think you don’t like it. If a recipe is well balanced and acutely aware of the flavor profile of its given base spirit, the result can surprise even the most discerning of palettes. Let us show how something you thought you disliked, can become something you absolutely love.
We love working with fresh ingredients! We try and include them in our recipes whenever possible and hand select the freshest and healthiest looking produce we can find. These ingredients should remain useable for up to 10 days after you receive your box. Occasionally some fresh fruit or herbs might get a little janky on route so please use your best judgement and always remember to wash your fruit before use.
Absolutely! You can order past boxes in our Shop + section while supplies last. These boxes will not include fresh ingredients, but we will make sure to list what you need to pick up. Usually just a few small items like a couple limes and a ginger root.
Baby come back! We will be devastated to see you go, but totally understand life happens and therefore have made it easy to cancel. You can cancel your subscription anytime from your customer account and there will be no further auto-renewals. Please note this will not affect your previously purchased packages so you will still receive the boxes you initially purchased.
Is there anything more unique and fun than gifting a friend or loved one delicious cocktails? Gifting a box is easy. All you need is your giftees email, shipping address and the date you want us to send them their gift notification email. Birthday or anniversary coming up…just celebrating a friend? We will deliver the gift email on any date you like. Gift subscriptions do not auto-renew.
No worries. Shoot us a quick email and if it’s something easy for you to pick up, we will refund the cost of the item. If it’s a hard to find ingredient we will ship you out a new one asap.
