There are plenty of creative ways to stay connected through the coronavirus pandemic and while we continue social distancing. If you are getting ready to host your next virtual party or virtual happy hour with friends, kick it up a notch with an instagram-worthy quarantini!  

Technically, there is no designated recipe for a quarantini (some suggest a base spirit, a little citrus, simple syrup and maybe a dash of emergen-c)—which means the decision for the quarantini of the night truly lies with the virtual party host.  

Choose the best recipe for your virtual party theme from this list of 9 easy quarantini recipes (5 ingredients or less) and you’re good to go!
