Nope, it’s not for us! Life is for living and that means seizing the moment and not depriving ourselves of the ‘good stuff’. So if the good stuff crops up in January we’re not going to risk missing out. Dry January, I don’t think so…
And we’ve just found all this lovely stuff we want to share with you. And it mostly consists of drink…..cocktails…..beer…and the occasional mixer.
YOU ARE NOW FREE TO COCKTAIL ABOUT THE CABIN
Gone are the days of boring in-flight drinks! This kit provides everything you need to mix two proper old fashioned cocktails at 30,000 feet. Come fly with me! And fear not, it will actually make it through security…you just need to order your miniature whisky on board, the kit provides the rest. Hashtag genius if you ask us.
#wheelsup Follow on Instagram for more great pictures and design from the Brooklyn based team who also bring us this…
Gin, there’s a lot of it about in Scotland, so much so it warrants it’s own post which will follow soon, we promise. We’ve read some really interesting articles recently about how to make your own gin so this ‘homemade gin kit’ would be a perfect starting point. Pity it’s only available in the States. Having said that there’s nothing to stop you on the DIY front. A quick google of gin making kits and there are loads on the market in the UK so on you go, #gintime.
With gin you need tonic. Tonic has become huge in the last 12 months. In fact mixers in general are upping their game. We’re no longer happy with the predictable supermarket offerings, and are turning to brands such as Fever Tree and Fentimans faster than you can slice your lemons. Recent taste tests and research have proven that Fentimans is now at the top of the market with more of us buying it than Schweppes.
So what’s all the fuss about? It’s all about the taste and the fact that reviews are telling us that the craft mixers do enhance your overall drinking experience. If you’re buying a craft spirit then you should do it justice with a craft tonic. Guess it’s simple.
Back to things coming through your letter box….Last week we got one of these delivered to the Towers.
We quite like things being delivered, particularly if they’re like this. Just before Christmas we took out a Beer52 subscription so without fail, every month, we get 8 bottles of craft beer and a lovely bottle of a craft spirit. Result.
Shortly after Christmas we were offered a Tipple Box to try out. We were on a roll so why not. It arrived. We opened, we crushed ice, we shook and we muddled and we created a Lady marmalade and a Strawberry Tipple within minutes. We smashed we drank and we pretty much enjoyed the contents of the tipple box in one sitting. This would make a great birthday present for someone. You can order online here.
So you can probably deduce from all that that no, Dry January will not be on the agenda at the Towers, in fact it’s very wet, just how we like it.
Might be a good idea to eat a little too….after all, that’s what we do best 🙂
