A cocktail, especially a good cocktail kit, can be more than a drink.
It can be an expressive accessory that gives the world a little taste of your personality or your particular state of mind.
Just consider all the iconic characters associated forever in our hearts and minds with their favorite cocktails: James Bond and the Vesper Martini. Don Draper and the Old Fashioned. Carrie Bradshaw and the Cosmopolitan. The Dude and the White Russian.
Now imagine what it would feel like to pick out your own signature cocktail in time for your next virtual happy hour.
The warmth and joy of having your favorite cocktail in tow could help you get over the fact that you can’t see your friends and loved ones in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, as David Sedaris notes in his essay collection, Naked, a good cocktail could, on occasion, do similar work to a hug.
Are you ready for your close up and a healthy, jovial toast? Grab your muddler, your shaker, and your mixology chart.
Use these virtual happy hour cocktail kits to host an event where you and your friends can show off your favorite beverage-based accessories in style while putting the cherry on top of your best and worst business days.
