This month’s box features everything you need to make and serve some great island-inspired drinks!
When I started unwrapping these items, they definitely looked familiar!
One of this month’s Bespoke Post boxes included a set of smaller tumblers from The Pineapple Co., and I experienced some major box envy when I read Liz’s review. I’m so excited to have my own set of pineapple barware!
My box included a set of copper pineapple shot glasses and a large copper pineapple tumbler. (This is definitely the summer of the pineapple; they’ve been popping up everywhere in subscription boxes lately!)
The top of each piece can be flipped over and used as a base.
The large 3-piece tumbler includes a copper straw.
Here’s the tumbler with the lid being used as a base.
Drinks can also be served with the lid on (there’s a hole for the straw punched into the top of the tumbler).
Don Q Rum Mini Sampler– $7.92
I also received a selection of mini rum bottles from Puerto Rico’s Don Q. The set includes: Cristal, Gold, Pasión (passionfruit rum), Limón (key lime rum), and Coco (coconut rum).
These sparkling fruit juices were included because they mix really well with rum. Both flavors are delicious— the Fruit Punch is kind of like a more restrained, grownup sparkling Hawaiian Punch.
Sugar cane sticks can be used to garnish and stir cocktails or as kebab skewers.
Robb Vices included a recipe for Classic Island Rum Punch. I couldn’t wait to break in my new pineapple tumbler, so I decided to give it a try!
The recipe called for: Envy Fruit Punch, unsweetened pineapple juice, and a mini bottle of rum. I didn’t have any pineapple juice on hand, so I substituted watermelon juice. I garnished the drink with watermelon, lime, and a sugar cane swizzle stick.
The punch was delicious, and drinking it out of the pineapple tumbler was a hoot!
Verdict: This Robb Vices box was incredible! I love the set of pineapple shot glasses and the large pineapple tumbler, and I think it’s so much fun that Robb Vices included everything I needed to make Island Punch. What a perfect summer box! The value is great, too.
The retail value of the items in this box comes to $150, which is excellent!
