If You Loved Hot Cocoa Bombs, You’ll Want to Try These Ingenious Cocktail Versions
Whenever we want a cool gift idea, a novel kitchen, a bar accessory you can’t find anywhere else, or simply a gadget that’ll bring a smile to our faces, we head over to Uncommon Goods. Our editors here at Kitchn always manage to find something that’s either cute, ridiculous, or ridiculously cute for the home on their website. In case you didn’t know, it’s one of the best places to find food “bombs” — from broth bombs that make easy, delicious soups and stews to a chocolate orb you can add to your mug for instant gourmet hot cocoa. Today, though, we’re bringing you the mixology version of this popular product category. You don’t have to be a skilled bartender to make tasty and accurate at-home aperitifs. Instead, you just need some cocktail drink bombs.
For $30, you get a set of six little flavorful spheres, which arrive in a 4-by-4 inch box that looks good enough to gift. The great thing about these is that you don’t need to find, sort, and measure out a bunch of ingredients! Simply pour your alcohol of choice into a glass with some sparkling water, and drop in a bomb. The six flavors include mimosa, piña colada, margarita, mojito, peach Bellini, and raspberry-orange, and they’re all different colors, so you won’t get them confused. After your bomb has disintegrated into the alcohol, you’re ready to serve and drink, unless you want to have some extra fun with garnishes and additional flavorings.
Of course, the cocktail bombs would make a great addition to non-alcoholic beverages, as well. Instead of alcohol, you could just fill your glass with some soda water and have a yummy mocktail in minutes. Shoppers also say the bombs are a blast to use and easy to bring wherever you go. “It’s great for camping or traveling when you want to experiment a bit with your drinks but you don’t have many ingredients,” one reviewer shared. “The flavors are varied and fun … These are great for the novelty.” Grab a set to bring some excitement to your next friendly get-together, or gift one as a birthday present. The cocktail bombs are a fun party addition no one will be expecting!
