Holiday Gift Ideas -- Become Your Own Bartender or the Hit of the Party with Julibox (Review)

What is Julibox?

"Julibox is your passport to cocktail discovery.  Each month, you will discover two great cocktails, curated by our world class mixologists and designed especially for easy home preparation. You'll get enough ingredients to make two of each cocktail; four cocktails in sum.  And you get all of the spirits and mixers you'll need to make 'em.





What will I get?

Immediate gratification and pure pleasure. Each Julibox features two cocktail recipes that have been hand selected by our curators for your enjoyment. You will receive all of the spirits and mixers required to make two of each said cocktail. Before your Julibox ships, we'll send you an email notifying you of any additional items you may need, typically lemons or limes. That way you can enjoy your cocktails as soon as you get your box.  And if you’re more of a visual person, you can watch the how to video on our website.



How it Works

Join todayAll you need to do to start receiving your monthly Julibox is sign up. Select your monthly subscription style and prepare to enjoy. Every month, you will receive a specially curated Julibox filled with new cocktail delights uniquely designed for your personal pleasure and adventurous spirit. When you find something you like, come back and order the full size at the Julibox store (coming soon).


My Thoughts:

I have shared in the past that I am not a wine connoisseur or bartender by any means, but I enjoy trying out new drink recipes (if they are easy enough, and don't require many ingredients).  So, when I stumbled across Julibox online last month, I thought it was a match made in heaven. :-)  For only $40/month, the folks at Julibox will hand-select cocktails for you, and send you the drink recipe card, along with the necessary spirits and mixers, right to your door.  All you have to do when you get the box, is unpack it and chill the mini bottles.  Then, when you are ready to have a cocktail, simply follow the easy steps on the recipe card, mix everything together, and then sick back and enjoy.

I received a sampler box a couple of days ago, and already had both cocktails with my husband, as we have been dealing with our oldest and her terrible two's, while the youngest is trying to get attention my mimicking her, to get our attention.  So, as you can imagine, it has been crazy around here the past few days, and these hand-selected cocktails from Julibox, helped relax us both, after the girls finally went to bed. :-)  

I didn't tell my husband about this monthly box subscription.  Instead, I told him to sit and relax while I whip together two drinks for us?  He thought I was merely going to open a bottle of wine.  But, when I returned with the cocktails I was able to whip up in a few mere minutes, he was impressed.

He thought I had been practicing bartending while he was at work.  "Yeah, right!"  Then, I let him in on the little secret of the Julibox and how every month we could get a selection of cocktail supplies sent directly to our door, along with the recipe cards (in case we wanted to re-create our favorites again).  Seeing that we both liked the two cocktails hand-selected for us, he asked if I would be signing up for the monthly plan.  At first, he though the $40 was a little steep for 4 drinks.  But, then he thought about the convenience, and how great it was to be able to have bar-quality cocktails in our home, instead of continually popping the cork on a bottle of wine, to relax at the end of the day.  And, this made it all worth it!

So, if you are looking for a unique gift to give this holiday season, why not consider purchasing a Julibox for them?  I can see this subscription service coming in handy for those girls nights I have once a month.  I try to come up with some fun cocktails to share, but Julibox takes the guesswork out of it, and ships everything I need to my door -- how convenient!  And, I am excited about this month's shipment, as it will be rum drinks.  Mmm!! :-)
