Father’s Day Cocktails From MYXD

Must read

Forget the dad bod, embrace the Dad Box!

Stuck for the perfect gift for the old man this Father’s Day?

Show him just how much you care with a collection of exclusive enjoy-at-home cocktails produced by award-winning mixologist Grant Murray for MYXD, the UK’s premier cocktail home delivery company.

Forget the dad bod… it’s time to embrace the Dad Box!

Each cocktail comes in a single serve pouch that’s ready to enjoy as soon as it arrives.

Simply chill, shake and pour!

Starting from £28.95, each box is also customisable with a message to your dear old papa – and will be delivered straight to his door.

MYXD’s Dad Box includes:  

  • Long Island Iced Tea

To recreate this sparkling cocktail for best at-home enjoyment, we have combined Flor de Caña 4 year old white rum with vodka, gin, tequila, triple sec, sugar syrup, organic citric acid, lemon bitters and cola reduction!

Finish with soda water to bring all those busy flavours together into this fresh, flavoursome, but fierce cocktail!
24.2% ABV.

  • Smoked Banana Colada

Flor de Caña 4 year old white rum provides the punch and – when combined with coconut rum, single cream, banana syrup, coconut syrup and smoky Scotch whisky – this really does take the classic Pina Colada to another level! Garnish with some pineapple leaves if you’ve got any going spare.
13.7% ABV. Contains milk and coconut.

  • Pineapple & Jalapeno Mai Tai

Our spicy spin on the classic cocktail that single-handedly depleted global rum stocks in the 40s and 50s! Flor de Caña 7 Gran Reserva Rum is the star of the show, accompanied by triple sec, jalapeno syrup, orgeat, organic citric acid and pineapple juice.

This is a short, strong, fiery cocktail that is positively bursting with flavour. Garnish with a lime wheel or some pineapple leaves if you happen to have any lying around!
15.3% ABV. Contains nuts.

  • Popcorn Old Fashioned

Step into Don Draper’s shoes with a MYXD twist on this bold, rich classic.

This fresh take on the Old Fashioned cocktail features Benchmark 8-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon, popcorn syrup and fragrant Angostura bitters – taking this Old Fashioned drink in a very modern direction!

Simple in construction yet complex flavour, this is the ultimate movie sipper.

Garnish with a twist of orange if the mood takes you.
26.5% ABV.

  • Penicillin

Our twist on a true modern classic sees us blending Benchmark 8-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon with Smokehead peated single malt whisky, ginger and honey syrups, organic citric acid and lemon bitters.

The result is complex and flavourful, leaning to the sour side, that’s finished perfectly with a lime wheel garnish (if you can be bothered).
22.8% ABV. Gluten free.

About MYXD
MYXD is the UK’s premier home delivery cocktail company.

Grant Murray, MYXD co-founder, said:

“I had wanted to start a home-delivery drinks company for a while but, when the pandemic hit in 2020, it provided the motivation I needed to get started.

“As the pubs and bars had to close during lockdown, people were really missing the experience of going out.

“Things have come a long way since then.

“At first, we were out in our cars, hand-delivering cocktails to the local area, but as word began to spread we started getting orders in from all over.

“Now we’ve sent almost 100,000 cocktails across the UK with next day dispatch.

“It’s been a wild ride!

“There’s nothing more indulgent than a good cocktail… perhaps other than one you can enjoy in your pyjamas!

“People have started to realise that you don’t always need to get dressed up to the nines to have a good time – you can have just as much fun at home with your friends and family.

“So it’s great to see our customers still passionate about enjoying incredible cocktails from the comfort of their living rooms.”
