Unique and delicious - got my subscription off to a great start!

Love, love, love this cocktail! Easy to make and get great results, even for a novice (it came out a darker green than the photo, but still quite striking). The light smoke of the bourbon and the nuttiness of the pandan made a wonderful combination, and the finished cocktail had a really pleasing mouthfeel. Just slightly viscous without being cloying.

I really hope CC adds pandan syrup as a regular add-on. It’s not something I’ve come across in a beverage context, and not something I could easily make.

A green bourbon cocktail!

This was actually the cocktail photo that got me to try the service. I’ll confess – I emailed to see if they doctored the photo as it was hard to imagine a cocktail with this much bourbon being bright green. Ours aren’t quite as bright but definitely green. I’ve never had pandan syrup and the flavor was really interesting with the bourbon. This cocktail tastes great. They also introduced me to the rapidly aged bourbon company, Cleveland Underground. We were very happy with this box — being introduced to something new and interesting is why we tried them.
