Unlike O, we have a slew of products which begin with P. However, after asking about 20 people whether I should reflect on our Pastry Blender or our Premium Cocktail Set at 10 AM, the overwhelming response was the Premium Cocktail Set. Not sure what that says about me and some of my FB friends. That may be another week’s reflection after I I finish blogging my way through the alphabet.
The funny thing is that I am not much of a drinker anymore, mostly because they did not mix well with all my medications. I am also not much of a baker anymore. The P product which probably gets the most use is the Personal Size Round Stone and the Pizza Cutter, which is how we cut carbs in our household (LOL).
What made me select this item to reflect on is that Pampered Chef has tried to think of everything in putting this set together. They thought of all the tools one would need to make fresh cocktails and mocktails at home. There is everything one could ever think of and then some, including recipes, to make measure, shake, and pour any cocktail.
I love the fact that everything I need is all in one set. How awesome would it be if everything we needed to make it through life came in one set. I have one friend who would tell me that everything she needs comes in the Bible and in her personal relationship with Jesus. I have another who tells me that it is the Buddhist teachings and writings which give her all the tools she needs to make it through daily life. At the ripe age of almost 63 (June will be here soon), I have realized that I do not have a Premium Faith Set. The set I have is constantly changing and evolving. I am taking tools out and putting new tools to use. So having a complete set would be amazing.
Each piece in the set has something special. For example the Cocktail Jigger has measuring lines at 6 levels and a pour spout so one does not make a mess, which is something I tend to do pretty well sometimes.
The Cocktail Shaker works for making individual or batch cocktails and the shakes allow you to feel when your cocktail is the right temperature. They also do not leak while shaking, which for those of us who tend to make a mess is a great feature. How often do we go through situations where our faith or our lives in general seem to be shaken up and because things leak out, we wind up dealing with a bigger mess than we had to.
Not making a mess, seemed to be what so many parts of this set helped the user do. Whether it was the Jigger or Shaker or the Hawthorn style Cocktail Strainer, the items in the set allow you to make the perfect cocktail or mocktail without making a mess. What strains your life, keeping what you say and do to not make a mess you later need to clean up.
The set also includes a Muddler to help you muddle not mash your herbs, which keeps your cocktails tasting fresh, a bar spoon, small bowl, bottle top opener and recipes. I love the recipe card because it has so much useful information on how to build your bar, make a simple syrup, and the cocktail making basics
There is one last reason I love this set and that is because I am frugal, most of the time and love that this set can both save me money on what I would pay for a cocktail. If you feel you need to find a space in your home for this product you can find it at https://pamperedchef.biz/sharonjacobson
