Pick one, or get all 3:
Grace House Cocktail Kit: The Grace House cocktail kit will transport you to 1983/4 Manhattan. In your mind’s eye, Keith Haring’s pictorial forms unfold before you. Your only wish is that you had a drink in hand...insert Grace House cocktail kit. The cocktail is a well-balanced, playful combination of harmonious yet distinct flavor notes: lemony citrus, rich honey, the striking aroma of cardamom and clove, a generous splash of sour-meets-sweet grapefruit, the unapologetic kick of ginger beer and Espolon Tequila
Waiting to Bloom Cocktail Kit: You don’t need to be a formally trained botanist to enjoy the herbaceous offerings of the Waiting to Bloom cocktail kit. Inspired by the life cycle and natural resources available to us, this drink can be enjoyed in the form of a martini or on the rocks. Relish in the silky mouthfeel of chamomile, the citrusy goodness of dried lemon, the penetrating floral aroma of lavender, a hint of sweet sugar on the rim, and Mile High Denver Dry botanical gin.
Ascension Cocktail Kit: This cocktail kit calls to mind Keith Haring’s iconic dancing figures ascending the staircase, figures that extend beyond the confines of the walls they were painted on. Ascension is the perfect combination of sweet and spice: the sweet-tart taste of dried orange, luscious honey, the punchy flavor of ginger beer, the smoky spiciness of chile simple syrup, the undeniable refreshing quality of soda water, and Fireside Peach Bourbon.
