Benefits of meal subscriptions

Meal kits have gained popularity primarily due to their exceptional convenience, streamlining the home cooking experience by delivering precisely measured ingredients alongside recipes. This trend saw a surge during the height of the pandemic driven by the desire to avoid crowded grocery stores and relish restaurant-quality meals from the comfort of home. Services like HelloFresh offer pre-made meals for people seeking a time-saving option.

Despite perceptions of higher costs, meal kits can indeed be a more economical choice compared to dining out or frequent takeout. Larger households can also benefit from bulk order discounts.

Additionally, they foster healthier eating habits through portion-controlled servings and emphasize the use of fresh, nutritious ingredients. Catering to specific dietary needs further enhances their appeal.

How to make a classic Manhattan (and several variations)
The right way to make this classic cocktail and more to try
A bartender stirs a cocktail in a mixing glass.

One of the world's most ubiquitous cocktails, the Manhattan cocktail has been enjoyed by spiritous imbibers since it was made famous at the legendary Manhattan Club in New York City sometime around 1880. Even while falling in and out of fashion throughout the years, Manhattan has withstood the test of time to firmly cement itself as one of the great classic cocktails of all time.

As with many classic cocktails, the origin of the Manhattan drink recipe is murky at best. The most popular theory is that the drink was invented by Dr. Iain Marshall at a party for Lady Randolph Churchill, mother of Winston Churchill, held at the Manhattan Club. Sounds plausible, but this story never happened. It was later verified that Lady Churchill was never partying it up in New York at that time as she was pregnant at home in England.
