If you're anything like us, you'll be missing sipping on a handcrafted cocktail from your favourite Saturday night bar. Although we will be going back to Alert Level 2 shortly, the regulations of dining out in Level 2 can make it a little bit tricky for bars and cocktail service – which is why it may pay to host your own Happy Hour at home for a little while longer, with the help of your favourite bars of course.
Caretaker is a basement cocktail bar in Britomart, specialising in the finer things and little details, while Deadshot is an intimate spot on Ponsonby Road serving up hard liquor and classic cocktails. Both amazing and both beloved by the cocktail-drinkers of Auckland, it's fair to say they've most definitely been missed during this lockdown.
Lucky for us, the team behind Deadshot and Caretaker have teamed up with a local brewery to deliver their cocktails to you! Hallertau Brewery has generously taken onboard a selection of ready-made Caretaker cocktails, available to be delivered straight to your door.
Unlike most online cocktail mixes available, the Caretaker cocktails arrive ready to be poured straight into a glass (after a quick stint in the freezer for the perfect ice-cold drink), no additional ingredients necessary!
Each package from Hallertau includes four of the classic cocktails – a Ritz Negroni, Martini, Handyman, and Fancy Free. All of which have been handcrafted perfectly from Caretaker's very own bartenders.
