Happy Hour Delivered to Your Doorstep!
Cocktail Courier, Chicago’s First Premier Cocktail Delivery Service,
Launches in Chicago

Cocktail Courier is excited to announce its premium online cocktail delivery service is now available in Chicago following a successful launch in New York City in 2014. Founded by beverage industry veteran, Scott Goldman and his two brothers Curt and Ryan, Cocktail Courier aims to demystify the craft cocktail process for consumers with its on-demand cocktail kits packaged with high-quality, pre-measured ingredients (including the liquor) and an easy-to-follow recipe card created by one of Chicago’s top bartenders. All that’s left to do is shake or stir!“We wanted to bring back the experience of the golden age of cocktails and prove to consumers that they don’t need a mixology degree to make great cocktails at home,” says co-founder Scott Goldman. “With the fast-paced growth of the beverage industry, today’s consumers are expecting more and more from their cocktails, but there is still an intimidation factor when it comes to creating a restaurant-worthy cocktail at home. Our goal is to ”make the experience quick, simple and fun by providing everything you need to create absolutely delicious cocktails on your own.”

Crafted by Chicago’s Own. 
With a monthly rotating menu curated by some of Chicago’s best bartenders, consumers can impress guests by serving restaurant-caliber cocktails in the comfort of their homes. A roster of top local talent including, Peter Vestinos of The Betty, Liz Pierce of The Drifter and Matty Eggleston of Nico Osteria as well as the signature Courier Classics, provide enough variety for Chicagoans to find drinks that match their mood. There’s something in it for the experts too, bartenders receive a tip that is already included in the price of the drink that they crafted. Current cocktail offerings in Chicago include the following with new cocktails appearing each month:
