Local restaurants are getting creative with ways to earn your ongoing business. The latest craze? Make-your-own cocktail kits — alcohol included!


Hugo Ortega’s Hugorita kit ($44, serves 8) comes with El Jimador Blanco tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice, Gran Gala orange liqueur and housemade orange-agave nectar cordial. Ortega’s Backstreet Café's Bloody Mary version includes a bottle of Grey Goose and housemade Bloody Mary mix, and there's also a mimosa kit with a bottle of sparkling wine and your choice of orange or wildberry juice.

Goode Co. Taqueria and Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina are also proffering a Damn Goode Margarita kit, with housemade mix and tequila optional (in case you have your own stash).

Dish Society and Empire Café have mouthwatering mimosa bundles, as does Agricole Hospitality’s Revival Market.

Another Agricole concept, Eight Row Flint, has packaged up the ingredients for three of its most popular creations: the Ranchwater, margarita and Old Fashioned; the restaurant group’s Vinny’s in EaDo offers kits to make Old Fashioned cocktails, mimosas and Aperol margaritas.

Meanwhile, Underbelly Hospitality is offering add-your-own-booze batched cocktails, dreamed up by beverage director Westin Galleymore.
