REPOST: GSN Review: Dashfire Ready-To-Drink Cocktails
August 27, 2019 GOOD SPIRIT NEWS by Frodelicious
Dashfire is a company based out of Minnetonka, Minnesota, founded by Lee and Dawn Egbert in 2012. In the era of cocktail rooms and craft cocktail bars, Dashfire has created a line of high-proof, complex, ready-to-drink cocktails, featuring a twist on some of the best classic cocktails out there. The cocktails feature base spirits that are combined with unique flavors and bitters.
Egbert said: “Dashfire’s ready to drink cocktails change the game – people get to enjoy a complete, restaurant quality cocktail at the drop of a hat, whenever and wherever they are.”
The 750 ml bottles are ready to be poured over ice for a perfect, premium and restaurant-quality cocktail at any time. Throw the cans in your cooler and you’re ready to enjoy your favorite cocktail at the lake, gathering, boat or golf course. The best part is that you only need one can instead of multiple bottles of liquor, mixers and juice.
There are six flavors available.
Bourbon Old Fashioned A blend of four bitters, natural sugar cane juice, hint of cherry, vanilla, chicory and spirited with bourbon.
Elderflower Martinez The pleasant sweetness of pear, tartness of apricot and the subtle aroma of elderflower.
Fig & Cascara Manhattan Made with Rye Whiskey, Cream Sherry & bitters, elevated with the addition of Black Mission Fig, Cascara Cherry, Vanilla and Rhubarb Root.
Lemon & Lavendar Martini Subtle sweetness and an elegant aroma from lemon and lavender bitters.
Pomegranate El Presidente High-proof rum and house-made grenadine, made from pure pomegranate juice, cane sugar.
Chai White Russian Made from Vodka, Midwest Heavy Cream, and Chai’Walla bitters.
GSN Summary: We love the size and portability of the cans. You can actually keep these in a cooler year-round and then just fill with clean ice when you’re headed out to a gathering. All of the flavors are natural tasting and well crafted. A nice change of pace from the myriad fruitinis, spritzers and corn syrup laden pre-bottled “itas” on the market.
