Looking for a standout hostess gift? A great, grown-up stocking stuffer? A central focus for your libation-themed gift basket? Zen of Slow Cooking’s new Mulling Spices gift tin is a unique way to add some punch to holiday gift-giving—literally.
The pleasing tin includes five handcrafted spice blend sachets, plus a recipe book for creating delicious seasonal beverages like mulled cider, spiced whiskey sours, and punch.
Zen’s whole spice infusion is crafted in small batches from whole star anise, cloves, allspice berries, and cinnamon, adding festive flavor to hot and cold beverages with and without spirits.
A terrific hostess gift, each sachet makes 16 servings of Hibiscus Shrub Punch, a recipe created just for Zen by celebrated Chicago mixologist Eden Laurin. (Shrubs are tangy botanical beverages dating back to Colonial times.)
Introduced last season, the Mulling Spices were so well received, Zen was inspired to create a line of signature cocktails and recipes around them. In addition, when combined with sugar and hot water, it makes a flavored simple syrup that adds zest to a range of mixed drinks.
Like all of Zen’s spice blends, Mulling Spices are made of high-quality, non-irradiated spices that are preservative-free without sugar.
