Shake your own at home with the Messina Cocktail Kit
Post-lockdown life looks a lot different these days, and while our former selves would have been out clinking glasses all merry season, the new version is choosing to stay in and pour a tall glass of indulgence – courtesy of the Messina Cocktail Kit!
The night-in saviours from Cocktail Porter have teamed up with dessert doyens at Gelato Messina to create the gift that keeps on giving: the Messina Cocktail Kit. The human race may have invented some pretty incredible things, but being able to grab a box from your doorstep and walk no further than your own kitchen to shake up a top-shelf cocktail – no pants or make-up required – is a pretty excellent innovation in our books. Head mixologist Tim Phillips has brought a wealth of bartending experience to the crucial mission of creating two DIY cocktail kits, and settled on an indulgent Dulce De Leche Espresso Martini and refreshing Coconut and Lychee Giña Colada.
Ditch dessert and slurp up the Messina version of an old favourite with the Dulce De Leche Espresso Martini kit. In your box you’ll find Ciroc vodka, Kahlua, cold-drip coffee, sugar syrup, shaved coconut and Messina’s famous Dulce De Leche Topping and Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. If you’re after a more refreshing tipple to get you through the sweltering silly season, Messina’s pina colada made on gin is your answer. Receive a box filled with Tanqueray gin, wild-pineapple juice, Maggie Beer verjuice, coconut water and dehydrated pineapple. You can order your Messina Cocktail Kit in mini (6 serves) or large (18 serves) here.
