Pick up (or even get delivered) your favorite Charlotte beer, wines, or cocktails.
With Charlotte’s stay at home mandate well underway, restaurants and bars have had to get creative when it comes to selling their products. Luckily for us, many local establishments have begun offering take-home craft cocktail kits. They also are offering heavily discounted beer and wine.
Below we’ve listed the boozy ways to support your favorite bars, restaurants, and Charlotte breweries. Because, when time is all you have, why not get a little creative…for happy hour.
Grab an $8 cocktail kit, equipped with everything you need for a delicious drink, besides the spirit.

Each kit makes two drinks.
