There is a glimmer of hope on the horizon as the UK starts very cautiously to come out of the Covid-19 lockdown, but even with the data going our way and the government roadmap starting to take shape, there are many occasions that we are going to have to celebrate virtually, at least for a few more weeks (months?) That’s why we recommend sending cocktail gifts to the door of your friends and family, giving them the ultimate drinks to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother’s Day with you from a distance.
If you are looking to send cocktail gifts to your nearest and dearest we’ve got some great ready to drink cocktails to choose from, so take a look at just a few of our favourites and make someone’s day by sending them bar-quality drinks to say ‘cheers’!
