1. Try the Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit from W&P

A sleek, compact design fits enough ingredients for two Old Fashioned cocktails, made right at your desk. This Old Fashioned kit is great for those low on space and a perfect transition from work to happy hour. The only thing not included is the “hard stuff” as W&P puts it, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as guests can choose their favorite brand of whiskey. W&P also has a great selection of other virtual happy hour cocktail kits, so be sure to check them out as well!

What’s Included: This kit includes the tools to craft two classic Old Fashioned cocktails at your desk: small-batch aromatic bitters, cane sugar, a desk-size bar spoon and muddler, a recipe card and a linen coaster.

Cost: Starting at $19.20

2. Choose from a variety of Bubble Tap cocktails

The Bubble Tap got its start bringing bubbly on draft in a cute pink trailer to parties. A great idea, if you ask us (and Lance Bass who is partner in the business!). And their cocktail kits are just as cute! Virtual mixology sessions will really elevate the look of your event, whether you’re planning a virtual bachelorette party or virtual conference. Choose your cocktail from a variety of delicious options, and you’re set for a great time.

What’s Included: Each cocktail kit comes in a custom, Bubble Tap-branded “This Box Is Ready…..To Paartaay” box and includes a Bubble Tap-branded coaster. Additionally, our two and three cocktail kits include a Bubble Tap-branded cocktail shaker and a bar jigger.

3. Explore the world of California wines

If you’re looking for something simpler than virtual happy hour cocktail kits, meet the virtual tasting kit. You’ll get all the fun of a virtual happy hour without the mess of cocktail making! Monochrome is a winemaker out of California that focuses exclusively on white wines. We like this kit because it challenges the notion that red wine is superior or that white wine is one dimensional. With Monochrome’s virtual tasting kit, you’re sure to change your mind.

What’s Included: The Virtual Tasting Kit contains tasting-sized (2 oz) samples of five Monochrome wines, each of which has scored 90+ points from the critics. It also contains notes about the wines and a personal virtual tasting with Monochrome’s winemaker, Dave McGee

Cost: $25

This class is focused on building your skills, giving you the tools you need to learn to make tasty shaken and stirred drinks, all while also focused on FUN – of course! Hosted by an award-winning mixologist, you’ll get tricks of the trade, as well as stories from their time behind the bar. You might even feel qualified enough to become a bartender yourself…or at least be in charge of the margaritas at your next shindig.

What’s Included: Our Virtual Mixologist Experience includes a personal culinary curator, an award-winning mixologist, an Avital Emcee Host, a 60-minute guided experience, and a cocktail kit.
