Governor Charlie Baker has signed a bill allowing restaurants to sell mixed drinks to-go…finally! There are, of course, rules — bevvies must be sold in sealed containers and can only be purchased with food in limited quantities before midnight. You can read the whole bill here to get all the details if you are so inclined but the general gist is this: you can soon be sipping your favorite craft cocktails from the comfort of home. Here are a bunch of tantalizing to-go cocktails that are already available for take-out. Pick your poison and place your order asap.
If you're placing an order from the special Butcher Shop menu at Grill 23 & Bar, don't forget the drinks — the Back Bay steakhouse has added a handful (to start!) of 16oz take-out drinks that'll make you feel like you're back in their elegant, two-tiered dining room.
