While we want nothing more than for our local bar scene to flourish, we understand the new normal means opting to have a drink in the comfort of your home. You can still support bars and local businesses all while enjoying your favorite cocktails by purchasing any of these locally handcrafted cocktail kits. As a bonus, you, not the State of Utah, get to decide how much booze to put in.
THE BAR PROJECT
SLC’S Nightcap Box
The Nightcap Box ranges from $50 to $250, depending on the frequency, and includes 3 cocktail recipes with all of the ingredients (not including the recommended spirits)—enough for 9 to 12 cocktails. Syrups, dried garnishes, mixers and citrus are included; you just add the liquor. thebarprojectslc.com
