No sports. No movie theaters. No bottomless brunches. The CDC says no gatherings over 50 people — though in some places that recommendation has dropped to 10.

But this social distancing thing really started to get serious when liquor stores announced closings and grocery stores started cutting back hours. Most people immediate thought to start ordering groceries online, but if you were more concerned about stocking up on alcohol, here are the answers to your pressing questions: Yes, alcohol delivery services are still up and running. No, no one will judge you for wanting a beer in your hand.

You can pick your poison from full-fledged online liquor stores like Saucey or Drizly, which offer booze deliveries in under an hour, or sign up for wine subscription services that drop bottles in bulk once a month. Most are also offering money off your first order.

Food delivery apps like Seamless and Grubhub also deliver alcohol as long as you can find a store or restaurant that sells it. 

Before clicking, remember that you must be over 21 to order and accept a delivery that includes alcohol. All good? Here are the best alcohol delivery apps. 

Say hello to vodka, tequila, local IPAs, and more brought to your doorstep. Saucey is a super successful alcohol delivery service that’s beloved for its 30-minute deliveries (the aesthetically-pleasing product photos are just a bonus). There are no offers for new customers, but when you get free deliveries with no minimums, who cares?

Another full-stock online liquor store, Drizly has a bomb selection of vodka, whiskey, White Claw, and so much more, plus options to add-on snacks and mixers. The site promises that you’ll get your delivery in under 60 minutes and new customers can get $5 off their first order.

Of course Postmates delivers alcohol. (It might also be a viable option if going to the grocery store sounds iffy.) Beer, wine, champagne, and spirits can be delivered in under an hour, and new customers can use code SAVE100 to get $100 in delivery fee credits.

If the bars in your area are closed, here's where to order alcohol online

This is the closest you’ll get to a spring winery tour (for now). Winc is a customizable wine service that picks bottles it thinks you’ll like depending on your answers from the taste quiz. If you receive one that’s too dry (or not dry enough), Winc will use the info to make a better suggestion the next month. Each box has four bottles, and new members can get 50% off their first order.

Buying from Boxed is like going to Costco or Sam’s Club without leaving your house. The site warns that your order could be delayed for up to four days or canceled altogether if stock runs out. This is probably more applicable to the stuff that’s selling out in stores (like bread and disinfecting spray) but hopefully people haven’t realized that they can order wine in bulk here, too. Order up to 12 bottles of wine at a time or fun canned rosé from Mancan.

This listing from the Mashable Shop offers a deal that can be used for 18 bottles of wine from vineyards across the world for half off their market value. That’s 18 bottles of wine for $162 (or $9 each) plus free shipping. Need we say more?

Since we’re on that Women’s Day energy 24/7, Maivino is looking like a sweet option, too. This women-owned service offers vegan sauv blanc, pinot noir, and rosé in pouches that stay fresh for 30 days after opening. (The pouches are equivalent to two bottles or 10 glasses.) According to the site, the packaging also reduces wine’s carbon footprint by 80 percent.
