Continental Deli's Canned Cocktails Are Now Available to Take Away
Usually, you'd be sipping a Mar-tinny. Now, you'll be knocking back a Quaran-tinny.
With restrictions on indoor gatherings currently in place across Australia — first limiting non-essential inside events and venues to no more than 100 people in one space, and then implementing a limit of one person per four square metres — the nation's hospitality industry is changing fast. Many restaurants, cafes and bars have added or expanded takeaway and delivery options, ensuring that you can still eat and drink their wares at home and, crucially, help support their businesses. And in Continental Deli Bar Bistro's case, that now extends to its popular canned cocktails.
Usually, you might hop into Continental Deli's in Newtown or the CBD for a Mar-tinny. Now, you'll be knocking back a Quaran-tinny — and you can do so while sitting on your couch. The venue describes it as "like a normal martini, but you drink it alone in your house".
While you'll still need to head in to pick up your canned cocktails, this is the first time that Continental Deli has made them available for takeaway. It hopes that'll only need to be the case for a limited time — depending how long the COVID-19 situation lasts, obviously.
Continental Deli is currently still open for dining in and, as always, you can grab and go from its deli, sandwich and dry goods range.
