The Globe Trotter Mobile Bars was launched in 2018 by couple Amy Hargreaves and Steven Cole, both 27 and from Hellesdon, after they went travelling around south east Asia and saw a VW camper van converted into a bar.

When they returned home the pair were inspired by the idea and converted an old horse box and since then have been serving up cocktails at events across the region, including weddings and birthday parties.

However, due to the coronavirus lockdown they have seen the majority of their summer bookings cancelled and had the idea to deliver their cocktails to keep the business afloat.

Mr Cole said: “Amy had the brainwave to deliver our cocktails so people can have a party at home and it has been phenomenal since we launched.

“We have options such as mojitos, espresso martinis and piña coladas and they are in a 500ml or litre old school milk bottle for £15 or £20 and come with garnishes.”

They are currently delivering across Norwich and the surrounding areas and they have also teamed up with Walnut Tree Catering, also based in the city, to offer Tipsy Afternoon Tea for £27pp.

The boozy tea includes a litre of your favourite cocktail, three sandwiches, two savoury treats, with options such as sausage rolls and pork pies, and a choice of three desserts, which includes a homemade scone with cream and jam, chocolate coated marble cake and mini macaroons.
