For those who enjoy a well-made cocktail, it can be tough to recreate the drinks we are used to sipping in local restaurants at home. Whether it’s a refreshing mojito, a bold and smoky old fashioned or a round of margaritas, we miss our favourite drinks.

Luckily, many restaurants around the city are offering at-home cocktail kits with all of the ingredients you need to make a mean drink in your own kitchen. Here are a few spots you can buy cocktail kits from right now.

With the weather warming up more and more every day, margaritas are going to be essential for the summer months — though some would argue they are essential year-round. Sister restaurants Anejo and Blanco both offer three different margarita kits that come with instructions on how to make and pour them properly.
