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.
You can enjoy these beauties in your own backyard (or living room or anyplace you choose) thanks to the Osteria Posto team. They've made portable versions of their signature drinks available for take-out so you can sip in style from the comfort of home.
Somerville's Painted Burro begins the era of take-out cocktails with two seasonal sips — De La Casa & Tequila Sangria — available to-go (with food, of course) in 16oz portions. Give these a whirl and check back for additional offerings.
