Unless you keep your bar cart fully stocked and meticulously updated, it can be a hassle to source all the ingredients for a specialty cocktail you want to make. Let's also not forget that going out for happy hour requires putting on clothes. Cocktail Courier makes kits based on recipes from top bartenders and sends you all the ingredients you need, including the spirits. Keep in mind, though, you do need your own basic equipment, like glassware and a shaker.
Cocktail home-delivery startups are delivering drinks
How many of these cocktail ingredients do you have at home: Avion Respisado Tequila, boiron pineapple puree, guajillo chili syrup, fresh squeezed lime juice, tajin chili salt, and a whole lime?
Cocktail Courier is betting your answer is: Not many. All those ingredients go into "Little Market," which is one of a number drink kits that cocktail home-delivery service builds, filled with spirits, mixers, fruits, and other garnishes to make do-it-yourself cocktails a smoother pour.
