Best places to get cocktail kits to-go in Calgary

May 12 2021, 3:58 pm

With bars closed for in-person dining and most of us lacking any real bartender skills, our adult beverages have been a little boring lately.

Luckily, some of YYC’s best cocktail establishments have put together to-go kits for mixologist wannabes to create their own fancy beverages at home.

Ranging from margaritas and martinis to drinks with names like “Fire in the Pharmacy” and “Bees Knees”, Calgary’s restaurants and bars have got you covered.

Here are some of the best places to pick up cocktail kits to-go in Calgary.
