Cocktail Gift Basket

Looking for Cocktail Gift Baskets to give to your loved one in the NYC area! Dictionary.com refers to cocktails as any of various short mixed drinks, consisting typically of gin, whiskey, rum, vodka, or brandy, with different admixtures, as vermouth, fruit juices, or flavorings, usually chilled and frequently sweetened. Bartenders and mixologists have their own take on the definition of cocktails: a cocktail may only be called that if the beverage contains THREE or more ingredients, with one of those being alcohol. If a drink is simply a spirit and a mixer like juice or soda, then it is considered a highball.  To be considered a duo, the drink must contain only a distilled spirit and a liqueur; until you add a mixer.. then you have created a trio. Mixers, besides soda and juice, that are frequently used in cocktails are sugar, herbs, milk, cream, and honey. Where the work cocktail originated from is still disputed. The word was originally used to refer to horses but in the late 1700’s The Morning Post and Gazetteer in London, England mentioned cocktail in a different form. The Oxford English Dictionary states that the first use of the word cocktail was in The Farmer’s Cabinet which was published April 28, 1803.

Welcome to the 21st century! You no longer need to be a professional bartender or mixologist to create the perfect cocktail. Sure, we are giving you a helping hand by providing the recipe and majority of the ingredients but you are actually creating the drink.. So it’s ok! Basically, cocktail means any mixed drink that involves three or more ingredients, with one of them being alcohol. If it is only two ingredients, like vodka and cranberry juice, it is considered a mixed drink or highball. When a beverage contains a distilled spirit AND a liqueur it is known as a duo and adding a mixer makes it a trio. Are you following this? Cocktails date back all the way to 1862 with gin and whiskey being the main ingredient. In the 1960’s the fad faded away until the introduction of vodkas as a substitute in the 1980s, especially in martinis. The cocktail list includes some classics like the martini, daiquiri, Manhattan, mojito, and negroni.

St Germain Liqueur is sweet with harmonious notes of cantaloupe, lemon, and sage. It received 95 points in the Ultimate Beverage Challenge with its superb aromatics of elderflowers, golden plums, honeysuckles, and grapefruit zest.  The complexity of this liqueur took over 100 years of experience – from perfecting the technique of maceration for the elderflowers to crafting the finest liqueurs. With only a 20% abv, St. Germain was destined to be a brunch favorite!

The golden yellow colour and aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, and spices make Perrier Jouet the perfect accessory to the liqueur. The complex, crisp, and elegant wine base holds ground for full flavors of lemons and fresh apples. Perrier Grand Brut received 90 points from Wine Spectator for notes of pretty florals and a polish texture. Flavours of Golden Delicious apples, pastries, and spiced orange peels have also been noted. 10-20% of reserved wines of previous vintages are blended to make this Grand Brut extra unique.

This has to be one of the most delicious and simplest cocktails we’ve seen to date. To begin you pour the liqueur into a flute until it is 1/3 filled and top off with champagne. You may garnish with the provided cherries for a burst of color. Perrier pairs well with duck, horseradish flavors, mushrooms, salmon, and roast turkey. Many of these can be seen at a late brunch.

No one actually knows where the word cocktail came from or who created the word. What we do know is that 99.9% of them are delicious! A cocktail is a mixed drink that contains a spirits/liquor of some sort, a mixer like juice or vermouth, and proceed as a highball (the contents of the mixer is higher than the alcohol.) Majority of the International Bartenders Association Official cocktails are considered highballs.  The Great Gintini Gin Gift Basket is a wonderful house warming gift!

You don’t need to be a mixologist to create the perfect cocktail. We’re going to help you out on this one! Introducing.. The Great Gintini! Sent to you on a silver platter, we’ve included all the base ingredients for a gin martini. Some martinis can be made with vodka and others with gin. A bottle of Bombay Sapphire Dry Gin arrives with a bottle of dry vermouth and various garnishes like olives, cherries, and cocktail onions. To help with the mixing process we’ve also included the necessary tools: a shaker, stirrer, strainer, jigger, and olive forks. You’ll be serving them up in no time!

Bombay Sapphire is surely unique compared to other gins. Normally, the botanicals are boiled right in the spirit while Bombay has created a Vapour Infusion process. 10 treasured botanicals like grains of paradise, coriander, cubeb berries, and almonds are set aside from the spirit in copper baskets and heated until the vapors are achieved and flavors are released. The end result is an aromatic fluid with high flavor content.
