EIGHT MELBOURNE BARS NOW DELIVERING COCKTAILS AND WINE STRAIGHT TO YOUR DOORSTEP

Order quarantinis to make lockdown a little more bearable.

Melbourne is heading back into another snap lockdown, and frankly, it sucks. We know that cocktails and wine don't hold all the answers, but they can make lockdown a little more bearable, at least.

Whether you're after bottles of vino, tinnies or freshly shaken cocktails, a number of Melbourne bars are ensuring you don't go thirsty while social distancing. Plus, by ordering from these guys, you'll be supporting small, local businesses and giving something back to the city's recovering hospitality scene.

So, here are eight of the best boozy delivery deals around town to hit up instead of restocking your liquor cabinet.

    This CBD cocktail haven is now bringing wattleseed negronis and fennel pollen sazeracs to your door, with 100 millilitre serves available for $20 and half-litres for $85. All of its bottled cocktails are inspired by native and seasonal ingredients. Other options include a bee pollen old fashioned, a lamington creation made with cocoa butter, and a paperbark martini with passionfruit vinegar and smoked mount Zero olive oil. You can even nab one of everything with the Byrds of a Feather party pack.

    How? Order online for delivery or pick up.

    A mainstay in Melbourne’s small bar scene, Bar Americano knows how to shake up a mean drink. Usually, you’d nab a spot at the ten-seat bar, but these are not usual times. Instead, while its doors are shut, Bar Americano is offering daily delivery on a range of its bottled cocktails.  On the menu you’ll find an americano (of course), a manhattan-inspired concoction, the bar’s house amaro, an old fashioned and a negroni — a go-to in these times. Both 200 and 500-millilitre serves are available for most. You can check out the full Hometender menu here.

    As always, The Everleigh is delivering freshly shaken and batched cocktails to your door. The usual gang is all here — a negroni, a manhattan, an old fashioned and a martini — as well as a caffeinated concoction called the Coffee House. Try a bunch at once, with the Famous Four Set ($69), stocked with one of each of the headliners, or your own mix-and-match preference. A range of new spritzed cocktails is also on offer, featuring the likes of a French 75, the tequila-infused Palomita and a fizzy americano number. Order a single-serve bottle, or nab yourself a four-pack. Shipping is available to most locations across Australia.

Best of all, it’s offering free same-day delivery within the Melbourne metro area — if you order at least two bottles and get in before midday.
