Bacardi, Patron, Grey Goose, oh my!

Food & Drink

You may be looking for an excuse to put down the Clorox wipes or leave your virtual teaching duties behind (at least for a lunch break) to treat yourself to a delicious cocktail hand-crafted by YOU. Three Words: World Cocktail Day (May 13). And because of the Queen you are, you deserve the premium liqs—none of that bottom-shelf stuff!

In honor of the global celebration, BACARDÍ has launched six different cocktail kits with Cocktail Courier, a service that delivers perfectly portioned ingredients and detailed instructions directly to your doorstep (aka social distancing-approved!) Whether you're a rum lover, tequila enthusiast, gin drinker or scotch sipper – there's a drink for everybody.

Let's be honest, you don't actually need a holiday to mix one of these bad boys up, because any day can be World Cocktail Day in quarantine. But if you're catching a case of FOMO right now, check out the libations below to see what you can work with from your personal stash while you wait for your kit to arrive.
