Too Cold for an Alcohol Run? Use the Drizly App for Doorstep Delivery!Drizly.com Offers Alcohol Delivery On-Demand Services in NYC and Boston
There’s nothing like warming up with a hot toddy or an Irish coffee in the winter. But for nights when it’s Polar Vortex-cold and you just can’t bear to go outside, you can now get your fix through Drizly, a new iPhone app serving most areas in Boston and New York (Android launches soon). The premise? Beer, wine or liquor orders delivered to your doorstep within 30-60 minutes.
The company was founded by three Boston College undergrads in 2011 who sought out to develop the “Amazon.com for Alcohol,” and, thanks to a recent round of funding, expanded services to the Big Apple this week. Drizly has already partnered with 26 local liquor and wine stores (this number is sure to climb) across the city to ‘seamlessly’ handle delivery and payment. Prices are the same as when you are shopping in-store. Sign us up!
Easily set up an account by enabling the app to determine your current location, and enter your email address and zip code. After confirming you are 21 (the delivery men are responsible for scanning IDs), you’ll next be prompted to enter your delivery and billing addresses, along with your credit card info. From there, it’s only a few more swipes to place your order. Half and hour later you can expect your favorite cocktail at your door. Just have your ID ready! —CASSIE KREITNER
