To help lift our collective spirits

Published on April 9th, 2020

As we shelter at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Regatta Craft Mixers shares their community’s curated selection of virtual happy hour cocktail recipes to help lift our collective spirits.

“During this extraordinary time of social distancing, people are discovering new and fun ways to stay connected,” said Sam Zarou, CEO of Regatta Craft Mixers, “Their creativity is on full display as friends, families, neighbors and more gather online for virtual happy hours! Our home-bartender inspired cocktail recipes made with ingredients readily available in our pantries are the perfect sidekick for these virtual gatherings.”

If you need to stock up on mixers, Regatta is waiving shipping fees on all online orders until further notice, and is donating 15% of all online sales to the US Bartenders Guild’s Bartender Emergency Assistance Program (BEAP) through the end of April to help neighborhood bartenders and their families.
