The Perfect Cocktail Delivered To Your Door

Thursday, September 10, 2015 Perry

It's exciting that we are currently living in a time where man-made, quality goods are becoming more valued.  Companies like Esty, Pinerest and Instagram have created entire businesses centered around the passion for supporting entrepreneurs, movers and shakers.

This movement has also reached the food and beverage industry, turning out organic ingredients, craft beer and more flavorful recipes.  Thankfully there is no shortage of restaurants and bars in Chicago who support the cause!  Some of my current favorites are The Broken Shaker, located within Freehand Chicago , and Scofflaw, in Logan Square. 

Another company that is supporting the craft goods movement in the Chicago area is Cocktail Courier.  A craft cocktail delivery company, based out of New York, Cocktail Courier delivers everything you need to create the perfect cocktail at home, including pre-measured ingredients and an easy-to-follow recipe card with step-by-step instructions.

A lover of craft cocktails, I decided to try out Cocktail Courier for myself!  While there is a complete list of cocktail recipes to choose from on the Cocktail Courier website, each one created by one of Chicago or New York's top bartenders, I simply selected my spirit of choice and prepared to be surprised by what cocktail arrived on my doorstep!  

It was exciting to open the package when it arrived, unwrapping all of the special ingredients to create the Northside Collins cocktail, recipe by David Perez.  The package came with an inventory list, including:

1 bottle of Tanqueray London Dry Gin
1 bottle of Combier Pamplemousse Liqueur
1 bottle of honey syrup
2 bottle of fresh lemon juice
3 bags of fresh mint
2 bottles of Fever Tree club soda
1 bottle of Peychaud's bitters

Designed with the party planner on the go in mind, Cocktail Courier saves time and money spent at the store.  There are no worries about missing an ingredient on your list when everything you need is delivered right to your door!

I know it may look it from the picture, but I am by no means a professional bartender.  Pretty impressive, right?  Whether I am having a small get-together or just looking to try out a new cocktail, I am happy to know that there is a company like Cocktail Courier that supports local bartenders and quality products.  Cheers to that!
