Shaken and Stirred

Updated: Jul 22, 2018

I am a creature of habit. I know what I like and I stick to it. I always go to the same restaurants and order the same thing. I do the same workout routine each day. I order the same drinks at the bar. When I was approached to partner with W&P Design with their Carry on Cocktail Kits I was excited because I knew it was going to break me out of my comfort zone.


"The Carry On Cocktail Kit includes everything you need to mix up two delicious cocktails at 30,000 feet. Whether you’re in the mood for a proper Old Fashioned, the perfect Gin & Tonic or a spicy Moscow Mule, the Carry On Cocktail Kit is the ultimate traveler’s companion." -W&P Design


Carry on Cocktail Kits are great for those traveling. It's also great for those who want to try new drinks in the comfort of your own home. Portion controlled, these kits provide a delicious drink in moderation.


The Bloody Mary


The Bloody Mary kit is a great starter kit for those who like a little something with a kick. Complete with pickles, salt for the rim and bloody mary mix, the kits provides all the basics to make a delicious beverage. One of my favorite brunch cocktails, I never make bloody mary's at home. This kit was makes whipping up this cocktail simple!


Each cocktail kit comes with instructions that are quick and simple as well as a convenient stirring spoon and beverage napkin. The tin is perfect for storing everything afterwards.


The Champagne Cocktail


Admittedly, I love champaign. It's a fun drink, one that is often accompanied with a celebration. But that I never think to dress it up a bit. I just drink champaign.


With the Carry on Cocktail Kit, the champaign is infused with elderflower syrup and a touch of fresh lemon to create the perfect light and refreshing cocktail. This is something I could see myself making on a [regular] basis. Quick and simple, meets my requirements!



The Moscow Mule


I have never had a Moscow Mule. It's one of those drinks that always looks good but I am hesitant to try. My father bought me some mule mugs a few years back so I was very excited to try this out. With the Carry on Cocktail Kit, this drink was a breeze. Complete with ginger syrup, I added a bit of lime, vodka and soda water. I've been missing out this whole time! A new favorite!


Take a look at the easy and minimal ingredients required for each cocktail. Most of the additives are already provided for you in the kits, you just provide the alcohol and mixers!

I am a fan of the Carry on Cocktail Kits. They are easy, convenient and fun. If you're looking at experimenting with your beverages, give them a try. Embelish a little and make them your own!
