What Is a Virtual Happy Hour with Cocktail Kit?
A virtual happy hour is an online virtual event for groups and teams where they make and drink different cocktails. These events are typically held on video platforms like Zoom or Google Meet and connect people from all over the world. Guests learn cool mixology techniques from an expert bartender, plus discover unique cocktail recipes and flavors. Virtual happy hours are a great way to connect remote or hybrid teams for virtual team building, or even for virtual client entertainment.
