Perfect for a long spring weekend, Cocktail Porter has just started delivering to homes around the UK. The online cocktail service puts together kits that include spirits, mixers, infusions, garnishes and equipment before delivering them straight to your door.
All ingredients are of the highest quality and are ethically sourced, including fruit from London supplier Nature’s Choice. Leading mixologists from global drinks agency Sweet&Chilli and Nine Lives bar in London Bridge have designed the delectable range of make-at-home recipes. Each kit is delivered with how-to guides, videos and tips to make sure you are shaking up bartender-level cocktails at home. For a more in-depth experience, you can even ask the team to host a live digital masterclass.
The kits come in Petite, six cocktails, and Full Size, 17-20 cocktails depending on your household size and thirst levels. They make the perfect gift – both during and post-lockdown – with the option to buy the essential equipment if you’re missing any shakers or stirrers.
The first Cocktail Porter collection is now available and includes a passion fruit margarita made from Don Julio Blanco tequila, fresh passion fruit and garnished with dried limes; an elderflower “Le Fizz” spritz made from Grey Goose vodka, St Germain elderflower liqueur and finished with organic Persian rose buds; a whisky highball collection with Johnnie Walker Black Label, Belvoir Farms cordials and dehydrated lemon and candied ginger to garnish; a cold brew espresso martini made from Ketel One vodka, Kuka’s Cold Brew espresso, Conker Coffee Liqueur, and completed with Halo Raw organic dark chocolate; and a Seville orange negroni made with Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla, Campari, sweet vermouth and finished with fresh orange.
The cocktail collections will change over time so check the website to see what’s currently available to mix up.
