The Brand Behind Our Favorite “Secret Sauce” Launched a Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Kit for Dry January
There are a number of important distinctions between mixology and cooking, but there are also a lot of similarities. You want all the ingredients in your food to each bring something delicious to a dish, and the same is true for any good mixed drink or cocktail. That’s why we were so excited when Acid League — the folks responsible for one of our favorite sauces, the spicy-sweet Saffron Gold — got into the mixology game with their own line of tasty ingredients for making cocktails at home. The brand’s Ultimate Cocktail Kit is packed with delicious syrups, bitters, and extras including an aromatic mist and a plum-flavored sugar rim, which give you an excellent foundation to be your own bartender. However, since lots of people are participating in Dry January, they’re currently selling the same kit with a full-size bottle of Ritual Zero Proof non-alcoholic liquor for less than the price of the kit alone. Seriously! So, whether you’re partaking in Dry January or just want to build up your home bar, the Acid League X Ritual Zero Proof One Bottle Set is a can’t-miss deal.
To start, you choose one bottle of your preferred variety of Ritual Zero Proof non-alcoholic liquor: tequila, whiskey, gin, or rum. Then, you get an assortment of stylishly packaged ingredients to play with, as well as a Dry January digital recipe book to follow along or pull inspiration from for your own personalized concoctions. With three flavors of syrup — Medjool date, citrus saffron, and fruity punch tonic — plus mix-ins such as bourbon oolong bitters and a brine specifically blended for dirty martinis, you can keep yourself entertained for the rest of the year with different combinations.
If you’re new to non-alcoholic liquor, don’t let that stop you from giving it a try. Ritual Zero Proof carefully designs all of their NA products to have the same taste and aroma as their alcoholic counterparts. You still get complex, layered flavors that pair just as delightfully with cocktail ingredients, which makes these beverages ideal for any time you want a drink, but don’t want to have any booze.
While the liquids are this kit’s star players, its most beautiful contents are these gorgeous handblown glass and resin accessories. A pair of coasters in bright purples, oranges, and greens add a distinct flair when it’s time to serve, and the four stirrers — each one a different color combo — are way more chic than any cocktail umbrella. These small but thoughtful additions round out the kit so you feel like you’re getting something truly special.
Since this bundle offers such a great deal on Acid League’s standard cocktail kit, it’s worth grabbing now while you still can (even if Dry January may have already started). Mixing drinks at home is a fun and cost-effective way to learn more about your own tastes, and this kit gives you everything you need to get started. Cheers!
