Why not have some fun in your kitchen and hone a new skill?
It’s six o’clock and your usual happy hour place is closed – whether due to a certain global pandemic or your hard luck. You can either: find another bar that’s open and worth visiting, get your favourite alcoholic beverage delivered to your doorstep or simply pour yourself a drink at home.
That last option is particularly opportune if you have some bottles stocked up for a rainy day and your mixologist aspirations are starting to surface. Why not have some fun in your kitchen and hone a new skill, anyway?
