Thanks to Gov. Charlie Baker, restaurants can now sell mixed drinks to go. Considering it’s part of the fun of summer, that means it’s a perfect way to channel the beach/deck party/poolside without actually being there. (None for me, thanks.) But for you? Let’s get this socially distanced party started!
This list may not include some of the rotating drink items and some may have sold out of popular options; just check the offerings when you place your order, or give them a call. Before you order, check and see the restrictions: you must be 21+ with a valid ID, and you may need to order food with your cocktails. Some of these are not available to deliver—takeout only.
The Broadway has four cocktails on their Drinks to Go menu ($18-25). The standout either has to be the classic Espresso Martini or the Summer Rosé Sangria, with both strawberry rum and fresh strawberries. But La Piña (Ghost Tequila, pineapple, agave nectar, lime) and Lose My Rind (1800 Coconut Infused Tequila, watermelon, agave nectar, citrus) both are sweet, classic options.
Capo has 16 oz pouches of to-go mixed drinks: Italian Ice (delicious rotating flavors, currently blood orange), Mudslide, and Aperol. These are only available via takeout, and you order when you arrive to pick up your food.
Committee’s Frosé, Voodoo Science (Charanda, Kalani Coconut, loomi cordial, pineapple & turmeric bitters), C0mmitt33 Mul3 2.0 (vodka, mango, saffron, ginger beer, bitters), and Mamacita (Mamacita Don Julio Blanco, raicilla, rooibos & pasilla tepache, lime) are all freshly bottled to-go options.
In both 16 and 32 oz versions, Coppersmith’s Classic Margarita, Red Citrus Sangria and Peach Blossom Sangria are available. They also have boozy juice boxes in fun rotating flavors. Patrons can buy their specialty cocktails to go, too.
Some of Davio’s classics are available to go, like Davio’s Doli (Reyka Vodka, pineapple), Mediterraneo (Ketel One Vodka, Ketel Oranje, Cointreau, blood orange purée, lemon), and Red, White or Rosé Sangria. Fun fact: you can only get their Terminal C (Casamigos Reposado Tequila, agave, lime, pineapple and nutmeg) at this location.
Everyone’s favorite Southie sushi spot doesn’t disappoint: their “juice box” drinks just need ice and you’re good to go. The Mai Tai (rum, triple sec, orgeat, angostura) or Cry Baby (tequila, lime, hibiscus, elderflower) each serve one.
Fox & the Knife
Aside from their Frose, Fox & the Knife also have two cocktails available for takeout: Cats Meow (Tom Cat Barrel Aged Gin, Cocchi Torina, Fernet Branca) and Rosemary Paloma (Rosemary Paloma Tequila, grapefruit, rosemary). Even better, both contain enough for two cocktails.
Loco’s impressive cocktails now come in 16 oz bottles. El Jefe, Coco (which includes a coconut rim), Little Devil (tajin rim), Ghost Draft (in Strawberry, Passionfruit, and Blood Orange) are all available‚ limited to two per person.
The Playwright’s currently offering three kinds of sangria for takeout: Classic Red, Raspberry Rosé, and Peach Mango.
Woods Hill Pier 4
A few seasonal options are available at Woods Hill Pier 4—in single, double, pitcher, and punch bowl size options—Anthony’s Vesper (lemon-infused gin & vodka, cocci bianco, carpano dry vermouth), Lavender Bee’s Knees (gin, lemon, farm at woods hill honey, foraged lavender), Another Pour Decision (plantation 3 star rum, aperol, dry curacao, lemon), and Adelita Margarita (reposado tequila, triple sec, lime, agave)
