It's 5 o'clock somewhere right?

Social nights out at the bar might be on hold for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean cocktail nights and catch up with friends needs to be too. Give the boring bevvies a rest for the night and raise a virtual glass with your friends and a home homemade quarantini!

What is a quarantini? A quarantini doesn’t just have to be a martini, it can be whatever you want it to be. The only requirements are that it has to be made by yourself and it has to be drunk during the lockdown. No mixologist qualification needed either. We’ve found a way that you can create a variety of club-quality cocktails without having to purchase any new ingredients.
