If you're like us, we're enjoy getting our hands on wine delivery in Montreal, but that still means we've got liquor cabinets that have their fair share of unmixed booze. As we all continue to adjust to the circumstances, avoiding going out as much as possible, that also means that we're trying not to pay visits to grocery stores in Montreal too frequently either. What are we going to do if we want mixers and equipment so we can enjoy those bottles of gin, mezcal, bourbon, whiskey and beyond drinking it straight?
One of the best cocktail bars in town, Atwater Cocktail Club, has a solution we're not seeing too often elsewhere: Cocktail kits! While no one's permitted to sell straight liquor (beer, wine and cider out of restaurants, often with the purchase of food, is OK), bars that are connected to restaurants like this one have been pushed to innovate. These cocktail premixes are just thing we need to tide us over until we can resume our usual nightlife activities:
Here you'll find mixes that only require the addition of liquor like rum, gin, vodka, tequila, mezcal or cognac, all available with two servings per order that range from the Passion and Dreams' sweet passion fruit-lime-vanilla mix to a smokier blackberry, blueberry, lemon and thyme called the Smoke Show.
All you need to do is pick it up from the Barroco restaurant group's latest restaurant Fugazzi (1886 rue Centre, downstairs from the Milky Way speakeasy), get the instructions for the cocktail from the accompanying QR code, mix it up and enjoy. All you need to do is dial 438-522–PIZZ.
Cheers, Montreal. With services like this, we're going to get through this.
