Become Your Own Bartender With These 5 DIY Options

Whether you prefer a cold beer or a hand-crafted cocktail, there's something to be said about being served a good drink after a long week. To show support for local hospitality staff, the first Friday of December has been reserved for National Bartenders Day. This day is the perfect day to show appreciation for your local bars and bartenders, by enjoying a beverage of choice. Rather than going out this year, we decided to stay and experiment with some of the local liquor delivery apps. Liquor delivery offers a great solution in supporting your favourite businesses, without having to leave the house. In honour of the recent National Bartender Day, I suggest these 5 delivery services to keep supporting local and impressing your friends at the next virtual happy hour!

Provincial Spirits

Self-proclaimed as brilliant drinks for smart mouths, Provincial Spirits is a breath of fresh air.

 Delivery Networks

In response to the pandemic, many local restaurants and liquor stores have jumped on the delivery-app train in order to keep servicing customers. There are three apps, Skip the DishesDoor Dash, and Ubereats, that have expanded their services to include the delivery of beer, spirits, and other liquors. With many customers staying home, restaurants and liquor stores can maintain business and continue to keep customers happy from a distance. These apps offer a wide variety of locations to choose from, but at an added cost of delivery.
