I'm actually a little jealous of my wife! She's been "stuck" working from home; in my Ford Mustang themed "man cave" of all places. She gets to hang out with our dogs all day in my room full of awesome Mustang collectibles with a little TV going in the background and absolutely no commute in any of our horrible Atlanta traffic. And then she got to attend a work related cocktail party!
One of my wife's connections from JP Morgan had reached out to her about attending a business cocktail party for networking and to discuss economic issues. There was a slight hitch; as you can probably guess that hitch was COVID-19.
To work around this little COVID issue, the cocktail party ended up going virtual as a Zoom meeting, and my wife received a small package in the mail ahead of the meeting to help her be prepared. It was a cocktail care package from a place called Cocktail Courier (https://www.cocktailcourier.com/)!
This was very cool!
Inside of the box was everything my wife would need (except the Moscow Mule mug) to craft two Orange Mules. They even included the citrus fruit in the box along with the two mini-bottles of Grey Goose Vodka, a can of ginger beer, and a small bottle of orange infused honey!
To make the virtual cocktail party experience even neater, they led off the Zoom meeting with a professional mixologist who guided the attendees though how to put their cocktails together. Luckily we had the proper measurer and shaker in our downstairs bar to make it even easier for my wife to look like a professional behind a bar!
The virtual Zoom cocktail party even included guidance from a mixologist!
My wife did share one of her cocktails with me, and I have to say it was quite good. There may be some more Moscow Mules being prepared behind our bar soon. And she can make them for me now!
