If you don’t fancy venturing to the pub (we don’t blame you), don’t resign yourself to drinking alone.
There’s a van you can book to drive to you, set up shop outside your home for 30 or 90 minutes, and pour out cocktails on tap for you and five of your pals.
Liberation Cocktails is the brand behind this genius operation, launching the Cocktail Cruiser back in June to help out people missing the boozy bar experience.
Here’s how it works.
First, you’ll need to be living in – or have a friend who lives in – one of these postcodes in London: W, W, SW, TW, KT, UB, HA
Sorted that bit? That means you can then book the van through Whatsapp or email for a minimum of a 30-minute happy hour any time between 12pm and 9pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
The minimum purchase to book is £90, which gets you 12 cocktails for a 30-minute happy hour.
If you and your pals manage to get through all those, you can buy more cocktails for £7.50 each. If you buy two, you get an extra 10 minutes of service time.
Your happy hour offering includes service from your bartender, – who of course wears a face mask and gloves and asks that you maintain your distance – glassware, and your cocktails.
The cocktails available on tap are: Aperol Spritz, Espresso Martini, Passionfruit Spritz, Mojito and Strawberry Daquiri.
All this allows for the perfect doorstep party or front garden gathering for you and your pals, with dreamy cocktails and the proper pub garden experience without the stress of actually having to go to the pub and be around drunk people who aren’t so great at social distancing.
If you’re keen to book a van visit in, you can do so through the Liberation Cocktails website.
Cheers to that.
