Elevate Your At-Home Cocktail Game with A Mixologist Masterclass

We’ve all been there. It’s a week-night and you are at home on the couch with some delicious dinner, but where’s your bar-quality matched cocktail? Where do you even begin in mixing one? Why is life soooo hard? Cocktail Porter decided to fix this with a delivery service to please even the fussiest cocktail lover and invited us to try the experience out for ourselves.

What sets Cocktail Porter apart from other cocktail delivery services is their team of bartenders who create specialty cocktail kits with easy to follow guides and everything you will need to make the perfect drink in the one box that’s delivered right to your home. We tried their Pink Grapefruit Margarita kit, but there is something for every taste here including a very special Salted Caramel Easter egg martini and collaborations with Messina for a choc hazelnut martini. Yes – some of the packs even come with a tiny chocolate bunny!

Knowing how to make a decent cocktail is a good skill to have. But even the simpler builds like a classic Old Fashioned, Negroni, or Margarita require quality ingredients and at least a bit of planning, and at times it’s just easier (and more fun) to leave the shopping in someone else’s hands. That’s why we think a great way to expand your bag of boozy tricks with little to no legwork is with a cocktail subscription.

Mixing up our grapefruit margs was super simple. The packs even contained garnishes and spicy salt for the rim of our glassware. It’s a nice touch that the team have monthly cocktail subscription kits so that you can continue to learn new drinks over time, and always have something fresh and seasonal to try such as their Easter cocktail treats.

An added bonus are the free virtual masterclass with a resident Cocktail Porter expert. These interactive sessions will teach you everything you need to know to whip-up bar-quality drinks at home to ensure you perfect your mixologist skills. It’s also great because you can ask questions on their social channels about perfect pairings, mixers or anything else drink related – the team know a lot! Now the only problem will be choosing a special friend to share these drinks with!
