Shaker & Spoon
Make a craft cocktail at any time with this subscription service, which offers recipes from A-level mixologists and all the ingredients (sans the booze). Each box contains three recipes and enough mixers for 12 total drinks. This month, we’re exclusively offering $20 off when you use the code HOOK20 (order by today and receive the “Vodka, Adventures and Spring” box).
Gem & Bolt Mezcal
Speaking of booze ... Gem & Bolt just launched in New York this week and already available in Texas and California. It’s a surprisingly smooth (or, shall we say, subtly smoky) and versatile mezcal that mixes incredibly well. Cool bottle, too. Bonus: It’s distilled with damiana, a Mexican herb that’s historically known as an aphrodisiac. Consider this your mezcal gateway.
The Classic by Morez
A simple, elegant timepiece inspired by the French town that was once the center of grandfather clocks. As part of a pre-order special, just $184 (normally $230).
