Cocktails @ Home: How To Make 3 Drinks X Lockhouse Distillery

City Guide, Cocktails, Drink

Have you heard? Due to COVID-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”.  And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.⁠


It’s week whatever in quarantine and let’s be honest, the booze is a-flowin’. But at least it’s local booze right? We’ve been keeping you up with the local beer scene thanks to the weekly Buffalo Beer Buzz Series, but we thought it might be time to *shake* things up a bit with some cocktail recipes from your favorite local distilleries, breweries, and more.

In our Cocktails @ Home Series, each week we’ll share 3 recipes from a local distillery, brewery or bar along with a how-to video. Our hope is that these recipes use ingredients you probably have at home and the videos teach you something, inspire you to get *crafty*, or at the very least give you something to do for 10 – 20 min. Cheers, Buffalo!
