Don't Bother Leaving Home. Enjoy a Drink (Responsibly) and Get Alcohol Delivered

Order in or stock up with the best on-demand booze delivery services for 2023.

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

If you want to treat yourself to a stiff drink, there's no need to head out to the bars. These days, liquor delivery services are making getting alcohol easier than ever. The best alcohol delivery services provide booze straight at your door. Plus, they give you access to a more diverse selection of beer, wine, spirits, hard seltzer and any other adult beverages. 

Many of these booze delivery services work similarly to Uber Eats or GrubHub. You can browse the inventories of local liquor or grocery stores, and then an on-demand driver will be dispatched to pick up your items and deliver them to you. The best alcohol delivery services will often be able to get your items to you in an hour or less. 

Note that alcohol delivery laws vary by state, so not every service is available in every location. Inventory also varies by store and service, so if something is out of stock now it may become available again soon. We update this list periodically.

You can often get your order delivered in under an hour (though that depends on a few factors, like time of day and order volume), or schedule a delivery for the future. Add a tip for your driver, and you're good to go. The site is also encouraging users to select contactless deliveries.

Saucey offers 30-minute delivery or two-day shipping of beer, wine and liquor, with no delivery fees or order minimums -- the price is all rolled in, so what you see is what you pay (there are shipping fees, however).

Home delivery is great, but if you're going out to Walgreens or FedEx anyway, online retailer lets you order to pick up at one of those store locations near you. The site boasts that it has the "world's largest selection of wines," and you can have the bottles of wine delivered to your home or to one of those local pickup sites. You can also sign up for the StewardShip program -- a one-year subscription is $59, and gets you free shipping all year.

Selecting four wines will get you free shipping each month, from both Winc's own wines and bottles from independent wineries. Bottles start at $13 each.
