hosting a party and didn't buy enough beer. Or, maybe you're looking to relax now that the kids are in bed, only to open the cupboard and discover you're all out of wine. Whatever situation you were stuck in, with Drizly you can kiss those days goodbye.

Besides the obvious perk of delivery, does Drizly have any hidden perks?
Loads, here are just three:
Gifts - You can give the gift of alcohol to anyone over 21 anonymously or with your name on it.
White Glove Service - Drizly will help you coordinate events or bulk orders. So if you're doing a virtual event, you can send the same bottle to everyone so it's like you're drinking the same thing together.
Extras - What else do you need? Ice? Maybe some OJ for mimosas, a couple limes for the tequila, and paper towels for your clumsy friend? If the liquor store has it, Drizly can deliver it.
How much does it cost?
You'll be paying store prices and an optional tip for your driver. If you're in NYC, there's never a delivery fee. In other cities, some retailers choose not to charge a delivery fee either. Most importantly, delivery will never cost more than $5. No matter if you order a bottle of wine or $300 worth of alcohol, it will only ever cost you $5.
