What You'll Get
During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Make alcohol the easy way with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a make-your-own-lounge-cocktails kit at Divine Wines in Chilliwack (a $70.99 value).
Crowned the Favourite U-Brew Beer & Wine by Chilliwack Times readers in 2010, Divine Wines cultivates an appreciation for wine and cocktails with gourmet homemade elixir kits. Stirrers and shakers enlist RJ Spagnols lounge-liquor caboodles to harvest 15 750-millilitre bottles of cosmopolitans, mojitos, or piña coladas blended with wine instead of hard alcohol in order to suffuse the hybrid with a complex flavour profile and to complement monogrammed cheese-wheel coasters. Divine Wine's potable workshop escorts customers through the fermentation process, which yields a 12 per cent alcohol-saturated nectar primed for stiletto-heeled martini glasses in two to three weeks. Like scented resumé paper, a signature drink reveals much about a person's personality, and whether alchemists prefer the sweet mojito medley of white rum, lime juice, and fresh mint or want to fill their coconuts with piña colada on the rocks, Divine Wine offers a full satisfaction guarantee. Instructors outfit homemade potions with corks, labels and caps, and patrons may tote their own libation vessels or purchase bottles for $1 each.
