If you want to stay in business during tough times like these, you’ll have to get crafty. That’s what some local bars in KL are doing with these craft cocktail deliveries.

So you’ve stocked up your home bar with a myriad of options via these alcohol delivery services and even tried out some simple 3-ingredient cocktails at home. But nothing beats having a drink mixed up by your favourite bartender – we know. Luckily, the local bar scene has been getting creative, especially after the announcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) extension. We’re all stuck indoors with cabin fever, but that doesn’t mean your favourite cocktails can’t come to you.

In addition to being crafty, we’re also enjoying the ways that these bars have decided to package their cocktails for delivery. Coley has introduced canned cocktails, while Happy Stan pays homage to our local “ikat tepi” takeaway coffee. For the uninitiated, most local eateries do takeaway drinks in a plastic bag with its side tied up (hence “ikat tepi”) for easy transportation. Not the most sustainable in our plastic-free times, but ingenious all the same.

Our advice? Take it easy for happy hour tonight and order in – whether it’s cocktails or a nice dinner from your favourite restaurant. You deserve it for making it to (nearly) Week 3 of the MCO, and we’re sure these cocktail deliveries in KL will fix you right up.

Dissolved Solids

Dissolved Solids was one of the first bars to begin cocktail deliveries when the MCO began. Your cocktails will come in a bottle – all you have to do is pour into a chilled glass or add some fancy ice. The bar offers delivery within the Selangor and Kuala Lumpur area, with fees of RM5 within a 10km radius (of the bar’s Damansara Kim location) and RM10 within a 20km radius. Although there’s a cocktail menu available, the bartenders are happy to customise a drink for you if they have the ingredients. “There’s no request too peculiar or complicated, if we have the ingredients, we’ll make it the best it can be,” says Dissolved Solids.

Place your order via Whatsapp or message Dissolved Solids directly on its Instagram account.
