Quarantinis’ at home anybody? Oh, and if you need a recipe or two, we’ve got you covered.

Alcohol cupboard looking empty? In desperate need to stock it up? Home delivery is looking pretty good.

Now that bars and restaurants are closed it’s time to get creative at home. So, dig out the cocktail shaker you were given for your 21st, put on some music and shake it baby!

We like to call it … the ‘Quarantini’. It’s the cocktail you sip, when you’d rather be on a tropical island but are quarantined at home.

Many bottle shops are now offering home delivery, including the Sandstone Point Hotel’s Bottlemart and Eatons Hill Hotel’s Harry Browns Liquor. We asked both for their best ‘Quarantini’ recipes and they delivered!
