DIY Cocktail Kits

We may not be master mixologists - or anything close to it - but this summer J&G Steakhouse in Scottsdale is making it as easy as possible for anyone to shake up their own craft cocktails. Their DIY Cocktail Kits come with your choice of spirit, a variety of unique house-made mixers, fresh fruit-infused syrups, bitters and herbs. And we're not talking about tonic and mint, these kits come with mixes like cherry yuzu base, Absinthe wormwood tincture, Thai basil leave and Peychaud's bitters. The kits also come with recipe suggestions, bar tools and, because every good bartender needs one, a cocktail shaker.
