Our packages include your most basic cocktails, with basic cut fruit (wedges, wheels).
We start with the basics and give you options to upgrade. Our basic cocktails include things like:
They are served in clear 9 oz plastic cups with a 5 inch plastic straw & black beverage napkin.
However, if you upgrade your package, it will include more intricate cocktails (that require more ingredients or upgraded mixers) like:
Most of what you see on our website & Instagram are Clients who upgraded their bar aesthetic! If you love introducing your guests to different cocktail experiences, click below
**You must be willing to increase your budget.
You would only supply what you want served.
Our packages list all that you could potentially serve (Beer, Wine, Hard Seltzers, etc.)
If you decide you don't want to serve one of those particular items (for example: hard seltzers) then you simply wouldn't supply it.
When we do your beverage consultation, we will go over all of your menu choices.
Any unique or original drink that expresses the nature of the event.
The ingredients are inspired by the likes, taste pallet, and preferences of the person being celebrated.
For example: a signature cocktail at a wedding could be a drink named "Mint to Be" which is essentially a Mojito.
With signature cocktails you will have a menu that list all your drink options.
Mocktails are non-alcoholic/virgin drinks that mock or mimic cocktails in their appearance, but contain no alcohol.
The names are used interchangeably.
Liqueurs/Cordials are alcoholic beverages with added sugar and flavors that are usually derived from fruits, herbs, or nuts. (think Triple Sec, Amaretto, Bailey's Irish Cream)
By Georgia State Law, we are not licensed to provide any beverage containing alcohol.
We provide non-alcoholic cocktail mixers (i.e. lime juice, coke etc.)
If the cocktail mixer (i.e. liqueur/cordial) contains alcohol, the Client must provide it.
We like to keep bar services and catering services separate.
We only provide non-alcoholic beverages (i.e. tea, sodas, juices) that we “mix” with cocktails. If the non-alcoholic beverage is to be served by itself, and not in a cocktail, (i.e. for dinner, for children, for non-drinkers/pregnant women) the Client or their Catering Service must provide.
Please inquire if you'd like to rent our beverage dispensers as non-alcoholic beverages are self- serve rather than served from the bar.
Please note Kindred Spirits does not offer purchasing alcohol as a service.
We leave alcohol purchasing to the Client, however, once we've done a beverage consultation with you,
we will provide you with a detailed alcohol shopping list that includes amounts and brands.
Therefore, your package/quote will not include the cost of liquor, or anything containing alcohol (beer, wine, champagne, hard seltzers, hard ciders, canned cocktails, liqueurs, cordials).
We will ask for your budget for alcohol, as this helps us in our recommendations for your menu and shopping list.
Yes, we are licensed to SERVE alcohol, but by Georgia State Law, we are not licensed to PROVIDE any beverage containing alcohol. There are many package stores, that offer pick-up or delivery services, that make alcohol purchasing convenient!
We bring a printed/framed menu tailored to your event.
We do not provide any major decorations, like balloons, standees, popups, candles, or florals.
Depending on your bar space, sometimes less is more, so it there's no risk of things getting knocking over. (we bartend with speed!)
You are more than welcome to let us know if there is certain bar decor you would like to provide.
Most Clients prefer this as it ensures it matches their theme, aesthetic, colors, and decor.

We do offer DJ Services and will discount your package if you book both services!
We do not provide servers or catering, however, we will refer you to several companies, we have worked with, that would love to service your event!
Unfortunately, we do not offer tastings, but please know that our stunning cocktails taste just as delicious as they look!
No, we only do Open Bars.
What's the difference?
It is not.
Remember, our packages don’t include alcohol, the Client supplies it.
So while mocktails will save the Client money, because there is no alcohol being added, the package price remains the same (because mocktails still require all the same mixers, garnishes, & supplies)
So if you were to pick one of our packages, on our pricing page, but you want it to be a mocktail bar instead, it does not change the price.
While we understand you are trying to find budget friendly options, we don't advise cutting down on bartenders as one of them.
We need an adequate number of bartenders to:
No one wants to stand in line all night for a drink because 1 bartender is trying to man all of this.. Trust our process and our experience - we want your bar to be a hit!
**Click below to see what we recommend for budget friendly options.
We realize our packages aren't one size fits all, which is why our prices aren't firm final prices, but simply an estimate.
Packages are priced for the highest number of guests in that package. Even then, the price is still flexible. If your guest number falls in between the listed amount, you need more or less hours, or your budget is lower, let us know so we can customize the package for you.
Our packages are for basic cocktails and are based on the details provided in their breakdowns.
Be mindful that your rate can increase or decrease if there is a change in guests numbers, change in hours, if surcharges apply, equipment rentals are needed, or you've upgraded your cocktail experience.
Your final price will depend on several factors.
The only way to lock in your date is with your signed contract and 60% deposit.
You can “technically” pay your 60% deposit and sign your contract at any time, but we recommend ASAP so we can get the ball rolling with planning.
Why? We need adequate time to properly plan your event, and your invoice will incur a last minute booking fee if you book less than 2 weeks out from your event date.
The remaining 40% balance is due 72 hours prior to your event date. We approach our company policy/payments in the same way a customer would buy shoes online and pay in advance before receiving the item, or buy pre-season tickets prior to attending all the games. Our contracts are to ensure we will uphold our end of the bargain and eliminate possible hesitation of the Client.
Bear in mind, our dates fill up really fast and everything is on a first come, first serve basis (i.e. whoever submits their contract & deposit 1st will secure that date)
So the sooner you get back to us, the better :)
as we may have another client looking at your date.
Your deposit secures your date and ensures we can move forward with the planning process.
If you have a intricate event, that needs special understanding or clarification, prior to booking, we may schedule a quick phone call before the deposit is paid.
However, our communication is done mostly via email and we would love to answer your questions that way!
Once the deposit has been paid, we will set up a "meet and greet" to clarify any questions, event details, and preferences.
If we decide to have a call prior to the deposit payment, an appointment must be made, by email, so we can give you our undivided attention. This ensures we have all of the info we need right at our fingertips and enables us to keep track of everything for future reference.
We would never want to forget something that was said during a call because we couldn't log the details of our conversation right on the spot.
PREFERRED CONTACT METHOD:
Most of our Clients/Venues have built in bars, in home bars, kitchen islands, tables etc. they like us to use. It's rare we need to bring a bar, which is why it isn't included in our packages, but we do provide a bar rental option, as an add-on, for an additional charge.

Most commonly referred to as “license” by the general public, vendors, clients, and venues.
"License" can be used interchangeably for:
Liquor License (ability to sell/provide alcohol)
Business License (ability to conduct business)
Pour "License" (ability to serve alcohol)
This can be confusing if one doesn't specify which they need.
We DO have a Business License from the state
We DO have a Pour "License"
We DON'T have a Liquor License
Which means any alcohol on site we are licensed to serve responsibly. We cannot, however, provide or sell alcohol for a profit. Meaning we can’t do cash bars or hosted bars.
Yes, we have General & Liquor Liability Insurance
Yes, we have a ServSafe Certified Bar Team (Pour License)
We try really hard to keep our rates competitive and give you the best bang for your buck! That is why we have scaled our packages to be upgraded or customized to fit your budget. We are flexible and have many options!
However, bear in mind, we are more than bartenders who just show up and pour drinks. We are a Cocktail Catering Company with Certified Mixologists. The prices we charge covers the cost of everything you see in your package + in person + so much more behind the scenes work. :)
** Each of which takes hours and skill to do
**Also take into account inflation
Plus so much more!!
In other words, it’s a process!
We bring the luxury bar experience to you! Our cocktails are stunning!
