Savisto Cocktail Making Kit
Savisto Cocktail Making Kit
I have been wanting to spend more time on a drinks section on AmateurChef, which would feature different cocktails I have made. I have therefore been on the lookout for a nice cocktail making kit, luckily Savisto offered to send me one if I am willing to post my honest thoughts of the kit.
Here is my honest review of the Savisto Cocktail making kit, even though I was sent it for free this will not alter my thoughts on it.
My first impression on when it was delivered was “wow”, it came well package and in a nice black box. Each of the individual parts of the kit were in their own space and nicely wrapped to ensure they were well protected during delivery.
What is Included In The Kit
The Savisto Cocktail making kit comes with everything you need to get you started. Each element of the kit fits comfortably in its own slot in the box that it comes in, allowing you to easily store it when not in use.
The kit uses a Boston shaker which means it comes with the metal shaker bottom and then you use the glass. You
800ml Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker
The shaker is used with the 450ml glass to either shake the contents or can be used without the glass to stir or muddle the ingredients. The shaker feels great in the hand, made from good quality steel and is easily cleaned.
The glass is used along with the shaker and fits perfectly into the steel shaker. I like the fact that it is glass and not plastic as it makes it feel a bit better quality.
Hawthorne Cocktail strainer
The Hawthorne cocktail strainer is placed over the top of the shaker and as you pour the liquid it keeps any mushed bits out of the drink. If you are using ice to help make the drink cool then it also prevents this from going into the cocktail.
25ml & 50ml Stainless Steel bar measure
You need to know the amount of what you’re putting into your cocktail right? The kit comes with two bar measure’s, a 25 ml (single shot) and a 50ml (double shot).
Stainless Steel twisted bar spoon
The bat spoon is a typical twisted spoon that you will see behind a bar, it’s used to help mix the drink as well as layering the mixed drinks.
The muddler is basically the pestle of the cocktail world 🙂
You place any fruits, herbs or spices at the bottom of the glass and used the muddler to mash them down to release the flavours.
I have the kit but what cocktails am I supposed to make?!?
I have never really made many cocktails in the past….even though I have drank my fair share 🙂
Luckily Savisto had me covered!
Included with the box is a cocktail recipe book, it features an impressive list of 500 cocktails!!
More than enough to get a budding cocktail maker to start experimenting with the new kit.
Savisto – Who are they?

The types of products that Savisto have on offer are a wide variety such as Ice Cream makers, mixers, blenders and many more.
If the quality of these are as good as the Savisto cocktail making kit then I expect them to be of good quality for a very reasonable price.
