Festive season is here and to celebrate Foodepedia has put together a list of quality pre made cocktail brands to explore.
With Christmas menus on restaurant boards, and festive decorations all around, we can all see Christmas is fast approaching. That means Christmas parties, Christmas menus and friends get togethers for the festive occasion, or just because.
Those parties don’t always take place in a bar or restaurant, so for those occasions when the party decides to stay home, but you still want to woo the guests with your cocktail making skills, there is a simple solution – cocktail kits.
Here is a list of interesting brands to look out for this year.
Funkin Cocktails is a brand that has been around for a few years now. They offer a wide choice of cocktails from Nitro single portion cocktails in a can to enjoy straight away, to glass bottled 700ml premixed cocktails.
Their Nitro cocktails variety is not only handy in the festive season but also in summer. For those picnics and open plan events when you just don’t fancy poorly measured cocktail from a stall in a plastic cup.
I especially like their Pornstar Martinis, they taste just like quality freshly made martinis at the bar.
The canned Nitro cocktails have a clever technology in a can meaning they have that cool foam that’s normally only achieved with the use of cocktail shakers.
Meaning you can of course pour it into a glass or enjoy it straight from a can if you don’t want to be left with a lot of washing up to do after the party.
Funkin Cocktails also do alcoholic free Passionfruit Martini. Funkin Cocktails can be found in most supermarkets and online.
The Cocktail Society
For those with a mixologist spirit out there The Cocktail Society created a whole menu. The cocktails come in three different shapes: pouches, glass bottles and cocktail kits.
The bottled cocktail and cocktail pouch come in various sizes too from as small as 2 cocktails and up to 12 servings.
Pre mixed cocktails include traditional flavours as well as more unusual such as Smoked Old Fashioned and Coconut & Kaffir Lime Leaf Daiquiri Bottled Cocktail.
The brand uses no additives. Despite premium ingredients one serving works out to be as little as £2.75.
The Cocktail Society is all about making bar-quality cocktails accessible to everyone.
While their trendy cocktail kit boxes come with everything needed for a specific cocktail such as a cocktail shaker, juices and spirits in the needed proportions, a snack and a recipe card.
It comes in a beautiful box too, making it a great gift. The Cocktail Society can be ordered directly to your door. The Cocktail Society also offers Cocktail Discovery Subscription Box with monthly or quarterly cocktail boxes delivered directly to the door.
They come in 330ml colourful aluminum cans. The brand is passionate about health so each drink is designed for a specific purpose from boosting immune system or energising to calming.
jAGA uses natural ingredients such as adaptogenic Reishi and Cordyceps mushrooms, along with Ashwagandha, Magnesium, L’Tryptophan and L’Theanine.
The sparkling drinks come in four choices Pomelo and Passionfruit, Mixed Berry, Mexican Lime & Mint and Watermelon.
jAGA also makes concentrated shots in 6 flavours, which taste great mixed with sparkling water over ice for a refreshing drink.
