While sheltering at home you can still enjoy some of the area's finest crafted cocktails. Local distilleries are making thirsty Grand Rapidians happy by providing alcohol to go services.
In addition to bottled whiskey, rum, bourbon and other craft spirits, some distilleries are offering cocktail kits to go – complete with fresh ingredients, garnishes and instructions on how to make your own delectable mixed drinks at home.
Distilleries are also making their own hand sanitizer to supply local health and safety workers, with enough left over to offer to customers on a takeout basis. This is a great way to obtain an essential health protection while supporting local businesses.
