There are many schools of thought on how to make a proper martini, but who needs schooling when you have a perfectly good set of tastebuds? Write your own rules with Janel Johnson’s Martini Making Kit. A plant biologist by profession, she knows her botanicals, and chose just the right aromatic flora for creating one-of-a-kind flavor profiles—and a favorite new signature cocktail.

Pulitizer award-winning food writer Jonathan Gold once wrote, "A well-made martini is one of the greatest works of humankind: a caressing bitter chill, a burst of aromatics and a terrible, crystalline beauty that replicates what Kantians know as Pure Reason — a moment of clarity that carries within it the seeds of its own demise." You will know this moment of clarity with every sip of your homemade version. (Well, somewhat less clarity after downing one.)
 Assembled in Nevada.

Janel Johnson's mom taught her to be resourceful and crafty, encouraging her to take on many do-it-yourself projects growing up, from cooking and sewing to woodworking and home remodeling. A botanist by profession who specializes in rare plants of the Great Basin, Janel's knack for creativity and knowledge of flora led her to make homegrown cocktail kits after she attempted to concoct her own bitters. She realized that there might be other people who want to experiment with making their own cocktail ingredients at home, so she created her DIY sets so that others could have fun experimenting without a huge investment.
