Feel the Thirst
It’s a very good time to be thirsty these days, and despite the lockdown, local restaurants are bringing their A-game to your at-home beverage situation.
• Set out the tip jar and play bartender at home. Team Taco is releasing its drink recipes for you to recreate your favorite taco-marg mashup from the comfort of the couch.
• Ready to do the can-can? The 5% ABV in Mother’s Brewing Co.’s Ready Hard Seltzers will have you doing a little jig now that it’s available everywhere you normally buy Mother’s, so you can grab the fruity flavors on your next grocery run.
• If a frosty cup of Pineapple Whip got you in a tropical mood, you can pick up pre-bottled house cocktails and mocktails from The Golden Girl Rum Club. No bartending experience required—just add ice.
• We’ve all been turning into Little House on the Prairie homesteaders these days (I see you, you new amateur bread bakers!), but maybe leave the lacto-fermented beverages to the pros. Luckily, Spring Branch Kombucha has just rolled out online ordering and home delivery of its canned ‘booch—no risk of botulism here!
• Use your noggin, or just drink some nog, because time is fleeting and what season are we in, anyway? Kingdom is releasing its coffee-infused eggnog, O Holy Nog, in 16-ounce bottles, which are also available for delivery.
• Technically you could make cold brew at home, but, just like the “We have food at home” memes, it’s never as good as your fave coffee shop makes it. So, to save you the trouble, MudHouse is offering its cold brew concentrate in 24-ounce bottles.
• Coffee Ethic has been bottling some of its signature drinks, like its chai latte, its spiced vanilla oat latte and its classic Remedy cold brew, so you can shamelessly crack open a cold one before 10 a.m. and feel no guilt.
