Missing festivals? Get the party spirit going with these new Limited Edition cocktail kits

There’s one thing in particular about summer we’re seriously missing this year, and that’s festivals.

And what’s even better than festivals? Drinking cocktails at festivals. Sorry, those are just facts.

So we’re excited that we can keep the spirit(!) alive from our couch with these new Limited Edition cocktail festival kits from high-end at-home cocktail experts, Cocktail Porter.

Cocktail Porter are launching a series of festival collaboration kits, starting with We Out Here Festival, to order online right now, and enjoy over this weekend’s virtual We Out Here Festival with Gilles Peterson, which will feature live performance and DJ sets. 

The cocktail wizards have stirred up two limited edition cocktail kits to bring the party vibes to the at-home festival. Each one is delivered direct to your door with everything you need to make the perfect cocktail. Don’t have any rosemary sprigs lying around? Don’t worry! Your own personal cocktail courier has got it covered.

And if you’re a gin lover, the elegant Pink Spritz Kit includes Gordon’s Premium Pink distilled Gin, Gocce Di Favola prosecco, Double Dutch Double Lemon, fresh Rosemary sprigs and pink peppercorns for a fragrant summertime tipple.
