Hamptons Lane is a fairly new company that curates amazing kitchen products and artisan foods from around the world into a monthly themed box and then delivers them right to your doorstep.
Each month, they announce the contents of the box and you can decide whether or not you wish to purchase that selection. The box has a total value of $75, but you pay only $47 per box plus free shipping. What a bargain right!
July’s box is the Summer Cocktail Party and I couldn’t wait to see what was inside. I mean, who doesn’t love a refreshing cocktail in the summer? The box arrived in excellent condition and each product was individually wrapped in bubble wrap; then packed neatly into a beautiful blue box.
Once I opened the box, I found an amazing array of products I couldn’t wait to try.
What was inside?
Whodini Sisters Blood Mary Potion is an all-natural, gluten-free ingredient for more than just the perfect Bloody Mary. Add tomato juice and vodka for the tastiest cocktail.
Bloody Marys not your thing? Use this versatile potion as a seasoning in juicy cheeseburger sliders, on grilled corn or broiled into fresh, jumbo lump crab cakes. The Sisters like to describe it as “Crisp, Clean and Lean, with a bit of Magic,” and we couldn’t agree more.

I wasn’t sure which product to try first, but the Chuck Blueberry Cocktail Juice from American Juice Company really caught my attention. I’m not a big spirit drinker; however I do like a sweet cocktail in the summer every now and then.
I combined the Chuck Blueberry with some Chambord and Malibu Coconut Rum and created this Coconut Berry Martini. It was fantastic and the juice really added a wonderful, light, fruity flavor to my drink. ~Cheers!
