Virtual happy hour hack: Get your cocktails to-go from these Miami bars and restaurants

It’s day number 294839 of quarantine and we’ve fully adopted the airport rules of drinking: booze in the morning is ok and right-now o’clock is the perfect time for a cocktail. And now that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lifted restrictions on alcohol delivery, we can continue to enjoy drinks from our favorite neighborhood bars while they remain closed. We’ve already highlighted the local restaurants selling wine and beer to-go, but now we’re moving on to the hard stuff: spirits. Below is a list of local spots that’ll help you bring happy hour home.

Phuc Yea
The MiMo restaurant launches a selection of new batched cocktails each week, starting with the Basic Bitch, Phuongs Den and Tom’s Who. Each is $30, serves four, and both takeout and delivery are available. Use code Corona for 10-percent off your order.

Enough to satisfy a group but also the right amount to keep you sane these days, Ariete’s large-format drinks serve seven to nine people and range in price from $40 to $50. They’re available for pick-up daily from 3 to 8pm.

Grails Miami and Spanglish Craft Cocktail Bar and Kitchen
These neighboring bars joined forces to offer one incredible menu of cocktails to-go, ranging in flavor from light and refreshing to strong and spirit-forward. The stronger stuff, like the Cafetera Old Fashioned, will run you $25 for two or $60 for five, while the chill sippers ring up for a little less. Check the cocktail menu online and place your pick-up order over the phone: 786-870-4313.

Bodega Taqueria and Tequila
Miss having your tacos with a cocktail? Order bottled Pico Picantes and Bodega Mules for $7.

The W South Beach’s ground floor restaurant continues to sling drinks during the pandemic. Every day brings a new cocktail, so call them up (305-938-3112) and see what’s available for pick-up.

The Alley at the Betsy
Ventanitas are the ideal scenario for social-distancing, and the Alley has it down pat with pre-batched cocktails you order over the phone (305-673-0044) and pick-up at their adorable walk-up window.

Finka Table & Tap
So youve got booze at home but nothing to mix it with. Finkas got you covered with pre-batched mixers ready to be delivered for free. Each container is $20 and makes up to 12 drinks. Did we mention theyre delivering for free?

The Rusty Pelican
You won’t get the sweeping ocean views or the bomb buffet but you can still bring home a piece of the Rusty Pelican in the form of its cocktails. Place an order for your favorite tipple over the phone (305-423-6590) and pick it up next door at sister restaurant Whiskey Joe’s, which is open daily from noon to 8pm.

Monty’s Raw Bar
Monty’s, our reliable friend in times of need, makes it possible to have a drink at home when we need it the most. The Coconut Grove restaurant is selling DIY kits for its most popular cocktails, including the Pain Remover, the mojito and the margarita. Each package comes with everything you need to make the perfect at-home beverage and makes about 10 drinks for less than $50. Takeout orders can be placed online or by calling the restaurant: 305-856-3992, extension 5.

Alter debuts a pick-up/delivery barbecue restaurant this week, featuring three take-home cocktail options: Arnold Palmer, the Bees Knees and Tommy’s Margarita. Drinks are batched and chilled, serve 12 to 16 people and priced according to the liquor of your choosing. Call daily from noon to 9pm to place your order: 305-573-5996.

Coyo Taco
You cant have tacos—or any Mexican meal for that matter—without a margarita in hand. Coyos Brickell, Wynwood and Coral Gables makes it easier to come by the boozy beverage with $40 gallons of pre-made ritas ready to pour and drink. Each gallon serves about 10 to 12 margaritas so youre definitely getting a deal on one of the best tequila drinks in town. Bottles of Don Julio Blanco and Ilegal Mezcal Joven can also be purchased for $40.
