We’ve been so inspired by the myriad of ways in which businesses have pivoted over the past year. Many of our favorite bars and restaurants have come up with creative, seasonally-rotating cocktail kits for their patrons to bring home with them, and it’s become one of our favorite ways to show continued support for the local establishments we love.
Be sure to check out our favorite cocktail kits from area distilleries as well as our list of unexpected places to find home bartending inspiration! As always, Top Note Tonic reminds you to please drink responsibly.
