Yes, cocktail making kits are officially a thing. And we are totally here for them. The majority of us who live in the UK are now in tier 3, which means pubs, bars and restaurants are closed. Now, instead of trying (and possibly failing) to make your favourite cocktail from home, we have an idea. Why not buy a cocktail making kit to help you out? We've tried a few of these and boy are they easy! Also, they rid the need to head to your local supermarket and source the ingredients. Some even come with a glass to enjoy your tipple in. Fancy! Oh, and these cocktail making kits make great presents – Christmas or not...
Head to our shopping page for more great suggestions of what to buy right now.
