Drinks deliveries to enhance any party in the park or garden gathering
Summer is coming, and along with it the sudden unquenchable thirst for a decent boozy beverage. Whether you prefer your alcohol on the rocks, in a sparkling spritz or shaken into a classic cocktail, it’s worth remembering that restocking the drinks cabinet of fridge with a tantalising new tipple could be the perfect way to make the most of your al fresco festivities. Here are some of the freshest drinks on offer for the spring and summer that make it worth bypassing a bar visit and getting a serving sent straight to your door.
Bottle Bar and Shop
For a boozy delivery, you don’t get much better than a box of hand-crafted mini cocktails on your doorstep. We recommend trying the refreshing range from Bottle Bar and Shop, run by husband-and-wife team Natalie and Xhulio who infuse, mix, create, prepare and bottle the drinks from their humble shop in Catford. All of their cocktails are made in small batches which ensures a high-quality control and freshness, meaning that they can provide the best of the bar experience in a ready-to-pour bottle. Despite being pre-mixed, there are no additives or flavours in the drinks, just delicious classic cocktails made with natural ingredients and high-quality brands such as Rock Rose gin and Holy Grass vodka. Whether it’s a classic cosmopolitan, negroni, margarita or old fashioned that floats your boat, or you prefer shaking things up with a floral elderflower gin, a sweet lychee martini or an exotic passion fruit daiquiri, Bottle Bar and Shop have something for everyone.
