Drink UpSourcedCraftCocktails.com Has Your Back
And while many restaurants and bars are facing closure if this quarantine doesn’t see an end in sight come summer, some mixologists and bartenders are taking their mad skills and putting them to excellent use. Basically, making sure you don’t have to go without that hand-crafted spicy margarita you’re missing from your favorite bar. (Or is that just me.) For an average of $7.50 a cocktail, SourcedCraftCocktails.com is here to make sure you don’t go thirsty.
“We are very proud of what we do at Sourced Craft Cocktails and have enjoyed bringing over 3.5 million quality cocktails to large scale gatherings including offices and festivals over the last 4 years. But today, we all need to listen to local authorities and stay home, for our well-being and that of those around us,” shared Tim Angelillo, Founder of Sourced Craft Cocktails.
“Seeing how many bars and restaurants are closed, and how many people are out of work, and how many people are at home still seeking quality cocktails for a small amount of comfort and enjoyment…”
…We developed this program as one way to help put our bartenders to work in delivering batched cocktails to your door.
Further, we are honored to support the USBG in their efforts to support the community at large.”
While some restaurants are bottling single cocktails, I’m on board with what SourcedCraftCocktails.com is offering: 12 cocktails in one batch with menu, instruction, spirit, glasses, and a bag. Right now the hospitality industry has to understand that affordability and quality are going to win out while we all start calculating our dwindling budgets for food, drink, spirits—and survival. And sorry, but alcohol is part of our survival!
Today begins a happy well of craft cocktail consumption thanks to our local mixologists who want nothing more than to make us happy. Sourced Craft Cocktails adds Los Angeles to Austin, Dallas, New York, and Dallas among the places they’re bringing quality bottled cocktails directly to your front door while we work on perfecting social distancing.
It may lessen the blow and add a tasty cocktail, and let’s be real, we need a win these days. The delivery program allows cocktail enthusiasts to enjoy the beautifully crafted cocktails we’ve enjoyed at our favorite bars, and while we endure more social distancing and forced “shelter at home” orders, we can still support local businesses including spirits retailers and purveyors of fruits, garnishes and other ingredients, as well as local bartenders, many of whom are currently out of work due to the closure of restaurants and bars.
To help the broader bartending community, Sourced Craft Cocktails is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bottled cocktail to the United States Bartenders Guild’s Bartender Emergency Assistance Program. The program kicked off in New York, Dallas, Austin and San Francisco on March 19. To learn more and place an order, visit www.sourcedcraftcocktails.com.
Sourced Craft Cocktails deliveries include a full bottle of spirit, 32oz bottle of all fresh ingredients batched together to make 12 cocktails, a jigger to help you measure out each cocktail, a menu with instructions on how to mix your cocktail, 4 high-quality sourced branded plastic cups, and tote bag with everything packaged up inside.
