With staying at home being the only thing on the social calendar for many of us at the moment, this Cocktail Friday we decided to bring the cocktails to you. Literally. How good does a box of DIY cocktail goodies, spirits, mixers, garnishes, inspiration, and instructions delivered right to your door sound?
Here are three fantastic online services and clubs offering this specialised service.
This is for a true cocktail aficionado who appreciates quality ingredients, creativity, GIN and the artistry of mixing the perfect “Quarantini”. Enjoy!

Delivering Australia wide, Cocktail Porter is Quarantini heaven with DIY boxed cocktail kits including high quality ingredients and with step by step instructions sent straight to your door. My personal choice, the Pink Grapefruit Margarita box serves 18. That should last a while. (Or not) Within this box of goodness you will find Don Julio Blanco Tequila, Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit, Triple Sec, Citrus Salt, The Salt Box Sriracha Salt and Dehydrated Grapefruit.
Cocktail Porter also offer bottled cocktails or a subscription package making you the proud owner of four specialty cocktail kits per year. The Hot Toddy kit is just about to drop in August. Sign me up.

Once the vault of an old bank, this iconic Melbourne basement bar is home to some of the finest cocktails, whiskies, and Reuben sandwiches a person could ask for. The cocktails are inspired by the blues and seasonal ingredients with a modern twist. They also offer a “Build Your Own Martini” option served to you in a tricked out glass dancing in the mist of liquid nitrogen.
Driver Lane has a Gin & Tonic Club offering monthly deliveries of DIY G&T kits! Yes, you heard me. The packs contain information about the 2 x themed local gins, a perfectly paired Fever Tree tonic and just the right garnishes. Sign yourself up here.
