Tasty To-Go Cocktails & Kits

Food & Drink

Keeping it cute and quarantined doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy local libations at home. Ordering takeout from downtown restaurants is so important for our community, and – fun fact – many of your favorite spots can send you home with their signature cocktails. Make your evening porch hang a little more spicy. Upgrade that millionth Netflix and Chill date. It’s 2020, everyone 21+ deserves a drink. Cheers!

Below is a compilation of some of the tasty kits and drinks available for pickup now in Downtown Knoxville.

Listen, variety knows no limits at Cafe 4! Homemade bottled cocktails AND mocktails (*non-alcoholic win!) are available for pickup. Might we recommend hopping on a Polynesian vacation with every taste of their Mai Thai cocktail?

Lonesome Dove’s 1888

Lonesome Dove has a handful of Capri-Sun-esque pouches of their signature cocktails available for pickup and patio seating. Their 1888 is a tasty combination of whiskey, fruit preserves, green charteuse, amaro nonino, lemon juice, and mint. I’ll take 3 for my lunchbox, thank you.

Decadence awaits at Peter Kern! With house-infused strawberry-raspberry vodka and fresh lime juice, she is crisp, tart, refreshing to the eye and palette, and of course now available in a to-go carafe.

Enjoy those breezy patios and treat yourself, K-Town. Downtown Knoxville bars are open till 10pm. But if you’re sticking to standing in your backyard staring at your dogs – cheers to you as well!
