On your local machine, you could use hypervisor like Oracle VirtualBox to manually create virtual machines/droplets. This would allow you to manually create your own Virtual Machines on your local machine. That way you will be able to have a Virtual Machine with Ubuntu installed.

Or you could try using Virtualbox, Vagrant and Ansible to automate the whole process. With Vagrant you should be able to automatically spin up new VMs. I would recommend taking a look at the official Vagrant documentation here:
