Cocktails delivered to your door

One of the most popular trends in the past few years has been the food delivery service, having all the ingredients for a meal delivered to you with instructions, ready to prepare. There are quite a few options for that type of experience. But what about the drinks to go along with that?

Well, hold onto your hats, folks. There’s a new player in town and it’s about to take home delivery to a whole new level. Cocktail Courier now offers its premium online cocktail delivery service in Chicago!

Cocktail Courier brings the craft cocktail experience to the comfort of people’s homes with cocktail kits featuring drinks crafted by top local, professional bartenders. Cocktail Courier aims to demystify the craft cocktail process by delivering its cocktail packages complete with pre-measured ingredients (including the liquor) and an easy-to-follow recipe card with step-by-step instructions. Cocktails featured on the site can be ordered à la carte (as sets of 4, 6 or 12), or as part of a subscription package (weekly or bi-monthly), and are delivered in a convenient time window. All that’s left to do is open the box, shake or stir as directed, then sit back and enjoy!

“We wanted to bring back the experience of the golden age of cocktails and prove to consumers that they don’t need a mixology degree to make great cocktails at home,” says co-founder Scott Goldman. “With the fast-paced growth of the beverage industry, today’s consumers are expecting more and more from their cocktails, but there is still an intimidation factor when it comes to creating a restaurant-worthy cocktail at home. Our goal is to make the experience quick, simple and fun by providing everything you need to create absolutely delicious cocktails on your own.”

Cocktail Courier offer a monthly rotating menu curated by some of Chicago’s best bartenders and also includes some signature offerings called “Courier Classics.”  And here’s a huge bonus! The bartenders who created the recipes receive a tip that is already included in the price of the drink that they crafted. So you’re not only getting the chance to sample some of the best craft cocktail recipes in the city, you’re also tipping the genius bartenders who created the recipes.

For a current list of cocktail offerings in Chicago visit the Cocktail Courier website. New cocktails are added each month and often focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients.  

But wait. There’s more!

In addition to its array of cocktails for home delivery, Cocktail Courier offers a range of accessories that complement the perfectly prepared cocktail. High quality coupe glasses, beakers, muddlers and more are among the options available for purchase if consumers don’t have a fully equipped bar at home. To ensure everyone has the proper wares, the site indicates at checkout each bar tool and/or suggested glassware recommended to make the selected cocktail and the option to add the items for an additional charge.

Cocktail Courier delivers its booze-filled boxes on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays to any location within 5 miles of downtown Chicago in a convenient two-hour time window. They will soon expand delivery to other Chicago neighborhoods and select suburbs, such as Lakeview and Evanston. Orders can be placed à la carte in sets of four, six or twelve and arrive next-day when placed by 9pm the evening before. Cocktail fans can also enjoy the subscription package which delivers a new cocktail kit weekly or bi-monthly. Prices vary, depending on the cost of ingredients, and typically range from $6.99 to $9.99 per drink with a minimum order of four drinks. The cost includes delivery, tax and tip (for the bartender who created the cocktail) so there are no surprises for the consumer at checkout.
