About Crafty Cocktail’s Bourbon Cocktail Kit
October, the time of year when the leaves are turning, the air has a distinct crispness, the TV plays continuous episodes of The Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror, and our attention at Crafty’s inevitably turns to bourbon. For us, it is as unavoidable as the snow which is soon to follow this magical season. Our love for bourbon-inspired us to find new flavor combinations and recipes for this month’s box, resulting in cocktails that highlight this unique and delicious spirit’s potential.
Bourbon’s exceptional flavor is the result of two distinct elements of its production which separates it from all the other whiskies of the world. The first is the use of corn instead of grain in the fermentation process, giving the spirit its sweet molasses flavor. The second is its aging process, which takes place in charred American White Oak barrels, giving it that characteristic smokiness. The result is a flavor profile that is unmistakable and the perfect complement to the flavors that autumn has to offer.
The Crafty Shaft gets your night (or perhaps day) started off right. In this twist on a Canadian classic, bourbon is the life of the party, Nitro Bros. Cold Brew brings a jolt of energy, while a velvety Irish Cream syrup and a dash of Smoke and Oak bitters introduce a wonderful and inventive complexity.
The Framboise Fumeé celebrates the smoky side of bourbon with a fun DYI applewood smoke-infused glassware method and Smoke and Oak bitters while utilizing other elements to emphasize bourbon’s fruit-forward side. Raspberry infused sugar, exclusive JamGoddess Brandied Raspberries and a touch of lime mingle with the smoke to create a truly unique flavor profile.
The Smash into the Void blends the line between the last vestiges of the balmy summer and the dark of the oncoming winter. A traditional Smash recipe with a Crafty’s twist, lemon, and basil take you back to hotter days while the jet-black color of activated charcoal reminds us that winter is just around the corner.
Featuring a ton of unique ingredients and fun and flavourful recipes, this month celebrates both the deliciousness of bourbon and the season in which it is best enjoyed (and inspires us the most). Whether you’re trying to soak up the last rays of the summer sun or enjoying that brisk autumn chill that tells you winter is on its way, there’s a drink for everyone in this month’s box.
