There’s something about having a cocktail made for you, it’s a process, it takes time… it’s theatre.
As a beer drinker, I’m not great at making cocktails, I’m too impatient for all those little steps and twists of lime and muddling and bruising mint. There ain’t no theatre, just a bad puppet show.
However, there is something that exists to change all that.
Just like bath bombs, cocktail bombs are made up of ingredients that, as soon as you add to sparkling water, they instantly fizz into a bar-quality mojito, margarita, mimosa, peach bellini or pina colada.
No need for cocktail ingredients, all you need to have is sparkling water and enjoy as a mocktail or spike it by adding a couple shots of booze.
The Cocktail Bomb Shop says all their bombs are vegan and mostly gluten-free and they also have a stack of recipes on their website.
Apparently it takes about 5 mins for the bomb to fully dissolve, which I’m guessing will provide more theatre than the next-day Berocca.
