Where To Get Cocktails In A Lockdown - Updated

As much as we’ve loved seeing Eric, our trusty DPD driver, three times a day for the past six months, there are some knocks at the door that get us more excited, than others and the promise of alcohol is definitely one of those. Here’s our updated list of where to get cocktails in Dublin, lots of them with delivery options, because staying in-in is never going to be the new going out-out, but at least there’s alcohol.




Hen’s Teeth Store


The Mr. Freeze and Slush Puppies of our youth have had an adult upgrade thanks to Hen's Teeth Store. Wavey Ice, basically boozy ice pops, are in the freezer, and they’re pouring cherry sake slushies for when you’re wandering around town in the sun. Want.




The Shelbourne


The Shelbourne’s afternoon tea at home has been splashed across many an Instagram story over the past few months, but their cocktail offering has been kept a bit quieter, and it's one to seek out. At €20 for two serves with garnishes we think they're pretty decent value, and for the full bar experience, €60 will get you two bottles of cocktails, olives, almonds and sea salt cashew nuts. We love their Pomegranate Zombie with aged rum, Appleton Estate rum, PAMA pomegranate liqueur, Cointreau, Orgeat, pomegranate juice and lemon, but it's The Shelbourne, they're all good. Available for collection or delivery (€10 if you're within 10k of the hotel) seven days a week. More details here.




Fade Street Social


Fade Street Social’s At Home offering is pretty substantial with food, desserts, wine, beers, and cocktails. There’s lots to choose from like a tangy blood orange fizz, rhubarb tart, their special sangria, and this rather lovely looking pineapple whiskey. Available for collection and delivery Friday and Saturday. Order here.




Charlotte Quay/Coppinger Row


Sisters Charlotte Quay and Coppinger Row include cocktails in their Deliveroo offering so you can get an Aperol negroni, raspberry fizz, Havana docks and others right to your door. We can almost smell the sunshine.




The Well


Click and collect from The Well now includes cocktails. Their twisted classics box gives you a cocktail like a daiquiri, margarita or whiskey sour as well as syrups so you can experiment with flavours, or go for the selection box to keep all the adults in the house happy. They also had a recent limited release of frozen cocktail pouches to take away that we really hope become a permanent feature. Available for collection Thursday - Saturday or for free delivery on Saturday. Order here.




Peploe’s


If you miss Peploe’s for people-watching, you can recreate the experience at home with their delivery dinner-boxes, and a good nosey out your window at the neighbours. Better yet, just stay inside with their cocktails. Choose from Margaritas, Cosmopolitans, Negronis and Espresso Martinis, and look out for seasonal specials, like Easter's 'Hazelnut Delight', with vodka, Kahlua and Nutella. Order here.




Anti Social


Anti Social, the Dublin 8 bar, is doing weekend cocktail deliveries across the city with drinks including long island ice tea (so rude that more bars in Dublin don’t do these) and a range of martinis. They come in 500ml and 1 litre sizes and you can order here.




Electric Cocktails


Electric Bar and Restaurant in Cork are raising money via a crowdfunding campaign to launch a range of cocktails, and keep revenue flowing until they can open safely again. Drinks include Pornstar Punch, Strawberry Mojito, Garden Collins, and a Peanut butter and Jam Old Fashioned which isn’t like anything else we’ve seen on the market so colour us intrigued. Prices from €25, with shipping across Ireland and the UK, and deliveries will start in June. Support them with an order here and give summer you something to look forward to.




Monk Cocktail Bar


A cocktail bar in a brewery will never be a bad idea, and Monk Cocktail Bar in Cork in the Franciscan Well proves this point. Through their website, you can buy boxes of their beer online, but also cocktail gift sets based around your favourite spirits. Plus, they’ve launched a subscription service to get cocktail kits to your door each month. If you have enough booze knocking around at home, you can even opt for the “Just The Bits” kit so you’ll have everything you need to make great drinks at home. Details are here.




Dacha Cocktail Mixers


Another handy option if you have a cupboard overflowing with bottles of spirits that you never get through (possibly because you keep ordering cocktails), Dacha Drinks produce natural cocktail mixes for you to create your own at home. With nationwide delivery, flavours include orange & basil, raspberry & thyme, and rhubarb. They can be added to prosecco for a simple fizz, or you can following the enclosed recipe cards to make something a little more fancy. Order here.




Dublin Cocktail Lab


Remember that feeling of being in a cocktail bar and the seemingly endless possibilities awaiting you in the leather-bound cocktail menu placed in your hands? We miss it too, so had raised eyebrows when. Dublin Cocktail Lab caught our eye with their unusual and aesthetically pleasing Instagram feed. Cocktails like Miso Grapefruit Bloody Marys and Rose Coconut Spritz are available for nationwide delivery, and the site also has loads of lovely add-ons like kombucha, pickle juice, and a hot whiskey syrup that sounds like it would go with pretty much anything. It's €5 for delivery and you can order on their website.




Farrier and Draper


As much as we’d love nothing more than to be sitting in a bar in Dublin 2, we’re settling for our sofas. Available for click and collection and delivery via Deliveroo, Farrier and Draper has a really big selection, including a Spice Bag Margarita. Might need a few lemon mojitos before we’re brave enough for that one. They also have a vegan range (aren't most cocktails vegan?) including this dairy-free pina colada. Order here.




Craft Cocktails


If you’ve kept an eye on our Insta stories over the past few months, you know that we’ve been working our way through lots of lovely drinks from Craft Cocktails. From the team at Bar 1661, these drinks pack a serious punch, and the really cute packaging means they’ve been one of our go-tos for sending a little pick-me-up to friends. Delivery is nationwide through www.craftcocktails.ie but we’ve also spotted them in Baggot Street Wines and Neighbourhood Wine.




Catch Events


After a brief hiatus, Catch Events are back with their Quarantini boxes, and we
