Margarita, old fashioned, a good strong martini -- all of these are drinks I like to indulge in on occasion, but where I live, cocktails can cost anywhere from $12 to $18 a glass if you order at a bar or restaurant. Using a cocktail kit to make your own drinks at home is cost-effective, fun and, these days, safer. If you want to try making your favorite drinks yourself, which I highly recommend,is worth jumping on. The kit is already discounted to $27.17, but a coupon on the listing slashes an extra $4 off, dropping your final price at checkout to $23.17. The set usually sells for $32.
The coupon deal applies to the matte black set, which comes with a wooden stand for storing and displaying all of your supplies. You get a cocktail shaker, ice tongs, a Hawthorne strainer, a double jigger, a mixing spoon and a bottle opener. If you need some help getting started, a little cocktail recipe book comes with it as well. Next time you have friends over or a date night at home, you'll be sure to impress when you whip out this set to make them their favorite drink. Or, you know, just treat yourself.
