Support your local and order negroni spritz tins, or a Chamomile Martini to enjoy on your couch.

Sydney's in lockdown once again, with stay-at-home orders in place and hospitality venues closed to dine-in customers. While this inevitably means that drinks at your local will have to wait, in the meantime, you can enjoy the next best thing at home.

Whether you're after wine, tinnies or freshly shaken cocktails, a stack of Sydney bars are ensuring you don't go thirsty while social distancing. Better yet, by ordering from these guys, you'll be supporting small, local businesses.

So, if it looks like you need to restock your liquor cabinet, here are seven of the best boozy delivery deals (and takeaway options) around town.

If you choose to pick up these drinks rather than have them delivered, have a look at the latest COVID-19 advice.

    Last year, this 1950s Vegas-inspired bar was named the 11th best bar in the world. And these days, you can get a taste of that international-renowned mixology genius at home, with Maybe Sammy’s range of damn good bottled cocktails. On offer, there are three cleverly reinvented classics — a Jasmine Negroni, a Eucalyptus Gimlet and a Chamomile Martini. Bottles come in either 100-millilitre ($18) or half-litre ($69) serves, with trio packs also available for $54 (three solo-serve bottles). During lockdown, orders are being hand-delivered across Sydney, with a 10-percent discount for Concrete Playground readers if you use the code ‘CONCRETE10’ at the online checkout on all orders made before Friday, August 20. You can also pick up your cocktails from sister venue Maybe Frank Randwick.
