Product Highlight: Cocktail Kits

When I launched A Bite of Good in 2020, I started with a small line of handcrafted spice blends - just twelve flavors, if I remember correctly. In the 3+ intervening years, I've created another three dozen or so spice blends plus several other product lines, including hot drink mixes, soup mixes, cookie/brownie mixes, and, most importantly for the purpose of this post, cocktail kits.

An excellent gift for any occasion, my cocktail kits are glass Mason jars filled with a selection of dehydrated seasonal fruit, herbs, spices, and/or flowers, along with bitters- or triple sec-infused demerara sugar cubes. My cocktail kits do not themselves contain any alcohol. Rather, the user provides their own, filling the jar with the appropriate wine and/or spirit and/or fruit juice and steeping it for a period of time to rehydrate the contents and infuse the liquid with all the lovely flavors. Once steeped, the user simply strains the contents over ice for the perfect seasonal cocktail.


What started as a Sangria, a Margarita, and an Old Fashioned in late 2020 has expanded to eleven different flavors which I now organize and make available according to the seasonality of their ingredients. And with so many flavors, I thought a little product highlight might be useful. For those who enjoy watching videos, I present the following. For those who prefer to read, please continue scrolling.
