The curator of the box, Paul Sevigny, focused this month's box on clean, simple flavors. This month's collection is geared to highlight how the same simple flavors and ingredients can come to life in very different ways based on the spirits you use.
My husband was sent spirits to make the Caipirinha from Brazil, and the Mayan Sunset from Mexico.
The Caipirinha features the clean citrus notes of Lime, paired with Cachaca (rum,) and the Mayan Sunset features both Orange & Lime, paired with Herradura Anjeo Tequila & Grand Marnier.
|The bottles are securely wrapped in bubble wrap & tissue paper.|
|6.75 oz. Leblon Natural Cane Cachaca Rum|
|1.5 oz. Grand Marnier|
|2 ~ 1.75 oz. Bottles of Herradura Anjeo Tequila|
|Quarter 1/2 of a fresh lime, and place into a glass. Add 3 tsp.of granulated sugar.|
