DIY cocktail kits have been a great thing as Seattle restaurants and bars remain open for takeout-only. But the best part about going out and drinking is not having to do any work at all to mix up your negroni or mai tai. Now that premade to-go cocktails are permitted, it’s a game-changer. If you don’t feel like buying giant bottles of liquor along with tubs of sour mix, we understand, and now you don’t have to. Head to one of these spots to pick up a takeout drink - no mixing required.
