Shanghai cocktail bar E.P.I.C. has launched a new series of cocktails in a can for delivery during the coronavirus epidemic. Goodbye bocktails, welcome…cantails?
Like restaurants, bars are having a tough time navigating the restrictions brought on by the epidemic. And like many bars, E.P.I.C. is working to keep the cocktail culture alive with delivery-friendly craft drinks.
Award-winning mixologist Cross Yu has crafted nine drinks based off classic cocktails. These are packaged in hyper-trendy Andy Warhol-inspired Campbell classic tin cans with the bar’s balls-to-the-walls slogan “DO EPIC SHIT” scrawled up top. They’re sooooo on-trend.
