Coming up with virtual bachelorette party food ideas is probably the hardest part of planning your online event. You’re not personally there, and you don’t have control over so many aspects. However, there are some ideas you can use and stay on top of the situation. Let’s explore your options, shall we?
Virtual Bachelorette Party Food Ideas
The most important thing you can do is see what your options are, so let’s start there. Then, we’ll check out some tasty ideas to try! As with our entire series, these ideas are great for lesbian virtual bachelorette parties with two brides or just one.
Hire a catering service
As we discussed in our virtual bridal shower guide, caterers are are coming up with creative ways to stay afloat in a world that has seriously cut back on in-person events (literally their bread and butter). So, it’s entirely possible to find one that will deliver individual catered meals to your local guests.
If there aren’t any in your area offering this service, you could always find one that creates takeout-style meals and have the whole batch delivered to your home (or a central location). Then, either enlist a few friends to deliver them to all your guests or have everyone stop by “drive-thru” style and pick up their meal.
Deliver food to each guest yourself
Another option is to deliver food (and maybe the booze) yourself to each guest. There are a few ways to go about this, including:
- Making and delivering everything yourself or with the help of friends
- Ordering from a local delivery service, such as Door Dash or Uber Eats
- Sending everyone a meal kit, such as Plated
- Sending gift baskets that fit your overall zoom bachelorette party theme (such as popcorn for a movie night).
Have a virtual cooking session
If you want to extend the party a little, you can start with a cooking session, and share your favorite recipe with every guest. This way, you’ll all celebrate, while maintaining the theme.
You could even attend a virtual cooking class together! Try to choose something that isn’t too difficult, and that uses ingredients most people have on hand.
Skip food entirely and just deliver cocktail supplies
Unlike fancier bridal showers, bachelorette parties are more about the drinking than the dining. They typically begin later in the evening anyway, long after dinner. So, you can easily ditch the dinner aspect and just make it a cocktail night. Give everyone a great bottle of wine, champagne, or even a gift card to pick up their favorite boozy drink & some mixers, then call it a day!
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s check out some truly epic online bachelorette party food and drink recipes

Before you go ahead and start working on your signature drink, you may want to check out this bartending kit from Etsy, and send one out for each guest. It can also count as a party favor, as you can engrave it with the bride’s name and event.
How To Create A Signature Cocktail?
Most mixologists recommend using the 2:1:1 formula when creating a signature cocktail. This means that it should contain two parts alcohol, one part sweet and one part sour. So far, everything sounds pretty straightforward, right?
The most common spirits are vodka, tequila, bourbon, gin, and sparkling wine, but you can use anything you like. Remember the formula when you start making it.
For the sweets, you can use any syrup you like, but most people go for fruit syrup, honey, or even sugar in some combinations.
The sour element can be any citrus, such as lime, lemon, or grapefruit, but also vinegar-infused herbs.
With these in mind, and the general 2:1:1 formula, you can definitely start working on something impressive for your party!
