Buffalo Negra Cocktail Kit

$100.00

Bourbon kits are always popular with our customers, no matter the season. Cries for “MORE BOURBON” are relentless, so we’ve teamed up with the folks at Buffalo Trace Distillery to feature a refreshing summer cocktail with one of our all time favorite bourbons.

Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, from the most award-winning distillery in the world, features corn, rye and barley malt aged at least 8 years in oak barrels. While delicious straight, with flavors of vanilla, brown sugar, and toffee, Buffalo Trace is our favorite bourbon for cocktails as it’s smooth, well-balanced, and a crowd favorite.

This month, learn to mix the Buffalo Negra, created by Mark Stanford, the Beverage Manager at Truffle Pig and Carl’s Tavern in Steamboat Springs, CO. Here’s what Mark had to say about the Buffalo Negra:

Whether you're a bourbon aficionado, or looking for a new experience, the sweet, herbal, and citrus elements of this cocktail are sure to please. It's a balanced beast of a drink that is refreshingly sippable on a warm summer day, and easily warms from within during the winter months: characteristics and versatility needed in town like Steamboat!

For the Buffalo Negra, you’ll mix with Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Eli Mason Demerara Syrup, O California Balsamic Vinegar, fresh basil and Hella Bitters Ginger Bitters. Finish with spicy small batch 18.21 Ginger Beer

For our Mixers customers, we’re including two additional bourbon mixers. Create simple Mint Juleps (or a Whiskey Smash or Mojito) with the Eli Mason Mint Julep Mixer or mix a Brown Derby with bourbon and Morris Kitchen’s Honey Grapefruit Mixer with hints of hibiscus.

For our Premium customers, you’ll also receive the Eli Mason Mint Julep Mixer and Morris Kitchen Honey Grapefruit Mixer. We’re also sending another one of our favorite Buffalo Trace Distillery bottles, Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey. This crisp rye is versatile in cocktails and a must have for any rye whiskey lover.

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.

Cocktail recipe cards, with both the featured cocktail(s) and classic cocktail recipes, plus food pairing ideas are also included in each cocktail kit.
