Cocktail Courier offers an enticing array of cocktail kits designed to elevate your mixology experience. While they provide subscription options for the dedicated cocktail enthusiast, this time, we’re delving into their limited-edition Espolòn Tequila Marigold Margarita Kit—a perfect companion for a special occasion or a delightful evening in. (Note: This limited edition kit is available until November 30.)
This DIY margarita kit is a homage to Día de los Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead. It pays tribute to the vibrant marigold flower, a crucial component of the traditional ofrenda, symbolizing the fragility of life.
Cocktail Courier prides itself on delivering cocktail kits that encompass everything needed to recreate bar-quality drinks at home. From the alcohol to the smallest garnish, each kit is a carefully curated experience. The appeal lies not only in the convenience but also in the promise of fresh, premium ingredients and easy-to-follow seasonal recipes.
The star of the Espolòn Tequila Marigold Margarita Kit is a 375 ml bottle of Espolòn Tequila Blanco. There’s a hint of pepper that adds just the right kick, and the smell is like a tropical breeze with a touch of lemon zest. This premium spirit set the stage for an exceptional cocktail experience.
In addition to the top-quality tequila, the kit also brings in a dynamic duo with two bottles of Turmeric Lime Syrup, accompanied by eight fresh limes. The lime packs a lively, zesty punch that jolts your taste buds awake, adding a bright kick to every sip. Meanwhile, the turmeric contributes a cozy warmth that wraps around the entire drink, bringing in an earthy and comforting vibe.
The kit also includes a packet of Edible Marigold Salt, inviting you to embark on a sensory journey. Moistening the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and rolling it in the vibrant marigold salt adds a visual and flavorful touch, tying the drink to the Día de los Muertos theme.
Preparing the Marigold Margarita is a simple process. Begin by pouring the marigold salt onto a small saucer plate. Moisten the outer rim of the glass by rubbing it with a lime wedge, then gently tip the glass to coat the rim in the edible marigold salt. Juice a lime, then measure and add Espolòn Tequila, lime juice, and the tantalizing Turmeric Lime Syrup to a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds, then strain the concoction into the glass and top with fresh ice.
Here’s the cocktail I made! It looks amazing – the golden salt on the rim sets off the colorful drink inside. When you take that first sip, it’s like a symphony in your mouth: sweet agave, tangy lime, and a little kick of warmth from the pepper in the tequila. And let’s not forget the flowery smell that adds to the whole experience – it’s a taste and smell party in every sip!
The Espolòn Tequila Bucket Hat is like a fun bonus in the kit! It’s reversible, like having two hats in one. On one side, it’s all sleek and black, with “Espolòn Tequila” embroidered on it. Flip it inside out, and surprise! There are these cool skeletons, totally fitting the Día de los Muertos vibe.
The Espolòn Tequila Marigold Margarita Kit from Cocktail Courier is like a party you can unwrap at home. What I loved most was not just the quality of the ingredients but how easy it was to turn them into a fantastic cocktail. The step-by-step guidance on the recipe card made me feel like a pro mixologist without any fuss. It’s a perfect kit for those casual home bartenders who want something special without the stress. But here’s the cool part – it’s also an excellent choice for the seasoned enthusiasts who appreciate top-tier ingredients and a hassle-free experience. And let’s not forget the fun bucket hat that adds a playful touch. I can’t help but think this kit would make an awesome gift. It’s not just about the drink, it’s about the whole experience neatly packed in a box!
