It’s that time again! *Ding dong*, “what’s that?”, “it’s your good friends at Microbarbox.com with your monthly box of happiness!”
Yes! The day we’d spent a month waiting for arrived (and it’s gone too soon)
So, what’s good with March’s wonderful box of treats? Everything! A Cosmo, some chocolate-themed goodness, and more.
We started with the most traditional cocktail in the box, and whisked up a fruity Cosmopolitan! Frobisher’s kindly providing the cranberry juice, and some Smirnoff lime vodka mixed with some triple sec, and our monthly party is GO!
Not being quite brave enough to mix consistencies too much, we stayed with ‘fruity’ and mixed up a Triple Berry Cooler. The complementing factor (to the cranberry and triple sec) this time being a delicious cherry brandy. We won’t lie, the brandy went down well, and would have made a perfect short, all on it’s lonesome.
Talking of shorts, that’s exactly how the patience was beginning to get as we smashed open some Rebel Kitchen (dairy free) chocolate milk, our old friend (cherry brandy), and some smooth chocolate vodka from the good people at Wild. Welcome to the Black Forest. Everyone knows cherry and chocolate are good friends, and they get along swimmingly here.
Triple sec makes a comeback for our next treat (the Chocolate Orange). Mix in a full miniature of Dooley’s Irish cream, and some more chocolate vodka, mix it with ice, and you’ve got a cold, zesty treat. We could have happily enjoyed this by the pint! Delicious.
Lastly (we know, we’re sad too), was the Cool Raoul. It’s almost Easter (and Microbarbox know how to spoil their fans with some mini-chocolate eggs), and that explains why there was a plethora of chocolate sensations. The Cool Raoul mixes ice with lime vodka, chocolate vodka, and the last of your chocolate milk. A last taste of what I’m sure adult night at Willy Wonka’s would have been like.
