Cruisin' for a Boozin': The Boston Shaker's One-Year-Anniversary Sale

By: Sarah Burns

From highballs and handmade muddlers to flavorful bitters and garnishes, the Boston Shaker is the ultimate one-stop shop to get your home bar Super-Bowl-bash-ready. And in honor of the store’s first anniversary, for one day only ? this Saturday, February 5 ? customers get 15 percent off every single item, both in store and online. There’s also a tasting from 1 to 4 p.m., where you can sample soul-warming aged-rum-and-brandy punch (the recipe is from the 1800s), and sip straight spirits like Springbank 10-year-old scotch. If you’re feeling frisky, be sure to pick up some Chocolate Love Tonic, an herbal aphrodisiac by Burlington, Vermont-based Urban Moonshine, which pairs perfectly with tequila and a hot V-day date.
