In a metropolitan city like ours where nightlife is rife, going out to a bar for year-end parties has long been a treasured tradition for many Singaporeans. This year, we are doing things differently. With social distancing measures and group size restrictions still in place, many of us will turn to the safe havens in our homes for more intimate gatherings. That doesn’t mean you have to give up on the boozy side of your festive celebrations. Forget the store-bought mixers and watered down spirits—if you’d like to indulge in complex, handcrafted cocktails without ever leaving your home, look to Vogue‘s selection of the best home drink deliveries to keep you and your guests in euphoric moods all night long.
