Milk Thistle Spritz Cocktail Kit

$100.00

Historically speaking, spirits and bitters have long been considered restorative remedies with medicinal benefits. As early as the 17th century, medicinal herbs were preserved in alcohol thus creating medicinal bitters, later evolving into ubiquitous cocktail ingredient we see now. While cocktails are no longer thought of as traditionally medicinal, bartenders today are exploring the flavors of these early herbal remedies.

One such bartender is Nicole Bailey, from Vena’s Fizz House in Portland, Maine. Creating interesting, complex drinks with local botanicals, bitters, tinctures and spirits - sprinkled with an apothecary twist - has become her signature. In this kit, she’s sharing her Milk Thistle Spritz, a silver rum and Italian apertivo cocktail mixed with milk thistle extract.

To mix the Milk Thistle Spritz, you’ll use a base of Plantation “3 Stars” Silver Rum and Cappelletti Aperitivo Americano Rosso, combined with Quince & Apple’s Honey Lemon Syrup and milk thistle extract, then finished off with Owl & Whale’s Persimmon Bitters. Your kit will also include additional apertivo and rum cocktail recipes, along with ideas on how to unlock the healing benefits - think liver health and hangover remedy - of milk thistle.

Our Premium customers will receive an upgraded selection of silver rum, along with two rum infusion kits handmade at Vena’s Fizz House: Cherry Mojito and Winter Dream.

      HOW OUR COCKTAIL KITS ARRIVE

      Our cocktail kits are sent in two separate packages. The recipient will receive the alcohol directly from one of our partner liquor stores and the rest of the non-alcoholic ingredients from us. Our cocktail kits are thoughtfully packed in decorative, branded materials and both packages contain information about which items are arriving separately. We work hard to time the delivery of both packages to arrive on the same day, or at least within 1-2 days of each other.

       

      IMPORTANT: An adult 21+ must be present to sign for the alcohol delivery. Due to alcohol shipping laws, the package cannot be left unattended. Generally, UPS/FedEx will only make three delivery attempts before returning the package to sender. We recommend shipping to a business address if possible, to guarantee an adult 21+ will be available to sign. If you can’t ship to a business address, please make sure the recipient is aware of the alcohol delivery. If the recipient is having trouble receiving the package, they can request the package is held for pickup at a local UPS/FedEX location through the tracking information we provide.

       

      SENDING A GIFT: To prevent alcohol from being returned to us, we strongly recommend that the recipient is made aware of the alcohol delivery. We're happy to send a gift delivery announcement directly if provided with the contact email. If not, we recommend that the you forward on the tracking information to the recipient.


      For any alcohol that is returned to us, we can make arrangements to reship the package. A redelivery fee will be assessed.

      We do not include a traditional packing slip in our cocktail kits; no billing or pricing information will be shown. Instead, each cocktail kit includes a detailed brochure highlighting the products arriving in their kit, as well as tips and tricks. Cocktail recipe cards, with both the featured cocktail(s) and classic cocktail recipes, plus food pairing ideas are also included in each cocktail kit.

       

      SENDING A GIFT: Since we do not include a traditional packing slip or billing information, we recommend that you include your name in the gift message. This way the recipient will know the sender of the gift.


      Gift messages are added to the cocktail kit brochure, located in the non-alcoholic package shipping directly from us. This package will arrive first or at the same time as the alcohol package, so the recipient will first see the gift message.
