Give a birthday gift that is sure to be fun and tasty – three drink-making kits that can be enjoyed immediately or at leisure in the days and weeks ahead. Each kit summons the toasts and good cheer that have lasted for centuries – from the early Romans, to the Colonists to fun-lovers of the early 1900s. Each one contains a keepsake card, with an historic image on the front and directions, plus a story of the drink, on the back. Each kit contains the exact  ingredients – plus easy-to- follow directions. No fuss, no muss, just fun. All the birthday celebrant needs to add is add the libation – or, as with the Small Beer Kit, nothing at all!

The trio also comes with the birthday card of your choice – and a personalized message should you want to send one.

 

Description

A Birthday Gift that has been Enjoyed for Generations

Mulling Spices  (2nd Century)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Mulling spices, a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, orange peel, and allspice, first appeared as a flavoring for wine in 2nd century Ancient Rome. Mulled beverages became especially popular in the Middle Ages to help warm cold winter nights. In Germany and England, a type of mulled beverage known as wassail became a staple of harvest drinking rituals and become popular in North America in the 1700s.  Comes with two recipes – one for traditional wine and the other for rum or bourbon. They bring the bottle and we supply the rest.

Small Beer Kit  ( 1700s)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Militiamen, workers, and the children at Mount Vernon drank small beer, so  named for its low alcohol content.  The recipe is adapted from a handwritten entry in George Washington’s French & Indian War journal “To make small beer.” The taste is smooth, with just the right amount of bite and, best of all, is ready just 24-hours after preparation.

Margarita Rimming Sugar Sampler  (1930s)                                                                                                                                                                                      While the origin of the margarita is a mystery, the stories surrounding the creation of the drink have one common thread – fascinating women. A former Ziegfeld dancer allergic to all other spirits except tequila, Marjorie King. Popular Mexican showgirl Rita de la Rosa. Celebrated jazz singer Peggy Lee. All possible muses for the much enjoyed 1930s cocktail. Marjorie’s Mango Raspberry Sugar, Rita’s Rose Sugar, and Ms. Lee’s Lemon Lime Sugar. Also enjoy as a rimming sugar, or in tea, lemonade, or sparkling water!
