If you have once again found yourself stuck on trying to decide on a good present for the man in your life, you’re in the right place. Guys can be notoriously hard to shop for, and there are only so many wallets, tools, and merch from their favorite sports team that you can give to someone for every occasion. This year, take it one step further and give them the gift of elegantly crafted cocktails that they can make in their own home!
Whether he wants to try his own hand at mastering his bartending skills or he loves his local craft cocktail bar but just can’t justify spending all his money there every weekend, American Cocktail Co.’s complete cocktail kits have you covered. These kits come with just about everything he’ll need to craft elegant cocktails from his own home bar, all the way down to the garnishes! He’ll learn new skills and enjoy delicious and elevated cocktails in the process, and you’ll get the satisfaction of giving a gift he’ll be stoked to receive. Read on for ideas for gifts for him that will make everyone on your list happy!
American Cocktail Co.’s complete cocktail packages have made it easier than ever before to learn how to make delicious and seasonal cocktails! Every month, he’ll receive the ingredients needed to make 8 servings of the cocktail of the month curated by award-winning mixologist Bob Peters. From carefully crafted recipes to premium spirits and mixers, the Everything Box subscription is the ideal gift for any man who enjoys kicking back with a delicious cocktail.
If he’s already amassed an impressive collection of liquor and spirits and would rather use those, there’s also an option to give him a No Booze Box subscription. This box comes with all of the mixers and garnishes necessary to create the same indulgent cocktail of the month, minus the alcohol. Finally, if you aren’t ready to commit just yet, try out the One-Time Purchase Box first to make sure he loves it (but let’s be honest, what’s not to love here?).
Is there anything as indulgently boozy as an espresso martini? We don’t think so, and that’s why the Espresso Martini box was born. He’ll learn how to craft this cocktail that’s equal parts boozy and energizing with ingredients like Absolut Vodka, Owen’s Espresso Martini Mix, and a bag of dehydrated oranges to add that extra-special touch once it’s all said and done. As an added bonus, this gift also comes complete with a luxe Copper Shaker that will look great on his home bar once it’s all said and done.
Old Fashioneds are a tried-and-true favorite. If his go-to order at your local cocktail bar is this warm and boozy drink, the Old Fashioned box is a perfect gift that will let him enjoy his favorite flavors (and the skills to make it for years to come). This box comes complete with Jim Bean Kentucky Bourbon, Old Fashioned mixer, and a dehydrated orange wheel for that final bright citrus flourish. We also included a sleek Bar Spoon so he can mix his favorite concoction in style.
If there’s one cocktail that he should know how to make to deeply impress his friends, colleagues, and family, it’s a Negroni. This three-ingredient drink just screams luxury and elegance, but it’s also incredibly easy to make if he has the right ingredients on hand! This kit comes with four servings each of gin, Campari, and vermouth to create this signature bittersweet explosion of flavors, all topped with a dehydrated orange for garnish. It also comes with our sleek Bar Spoon so he can mix up delicious drinks again and again.
This kit is perfect for fans of tequila, spicy warm notes, and spending time relaxing by a roaring fire after a long fall or winter’s day. He’ll love the sweet-and-spicy symphony of this cocktail crafted with Cazadores Tequila Blanco, Spiced Apple Hot Toddy Syrup, and La Marca Prosecco. Pour it up and get ready to get cozy!
Warm and tropical, this cocktail kit is the ideal gift for guys who love spending time kicking back by the beach and relaxing with a punchy drink in hand. He’ll learn how to combine the sweet and warm notes of Flor De Cana Rum with sunny Volley Tropical Mango Spiked Seltzer and bright honey citrus syrup. Once he rims the glass with a flavor explosion of blackberry salt sugar and garnishes with a dehydrated lotus root, he’ll have a comforting drink that transports him straight to the warm atmosphere of his favorite tiki bar lit with tiki torches and a bamboo-thatched roof.
If he’s in need of some much-deserved relaxation after a long year, you can’t go wrong with the Earl Grey Hot Toddy. This innovative cocktail combines the warm and comforting flavors of vanilla, ginger, and Larceny Bourbon with a bright and cozy Earl Grey Tea base. It will literally warm him from the inside out and bring plenty of peace and comfort. Don’t be surprised if an Earl Grey Hot Toddy becomes an essential part of his self-care routine!
We love a festive drink that’s best enjoyed while relaxing next to a bonfire, and so A Chill In The Air was born. This beautiful sparkling drink combines Bombay Sapphire Gin, Owen’s Sparkling Cranberry mixer, and a syrup flavored with mulling spices to create a delightfully tasty seasonal cocktail he’ll reach for again and again whenever the weather gets brisk.
From classic Old Fashioneds to innovative mixology concoctions, American Cocktail Co. has a great gift for every man on your gift list this year. Whether they’re an experienced cocktail enthusiast or a budding home bartender, they’ll love learning how to craft these boozy creations and kicking back with a delicious drink in hand.
