If the extent of your cocktail knowledge is building the perfect rum and coke, there’s a new service that can help you become a mix master and wow guests at your next event. Founded in Chicago last fall, Cocktail Courier aims to “demystify the craft cocktail process” by delivering foolproof kits right to your door stocked with premeasured ingredients (with no skimping on the premium liquor) and an easy-to-follow recipe card stirred together by award-winning bartenders. Even better, Cocktail Courier offers same-day delivery if you need drink ideas or extra quantities in a pinch. Orders can be placed for four, eight, 12 or more drinks per box.
