Normally, there is nothing like a night on the town and a delicious cocktail (or two) to relax and have a bit of fun. Of course, among the many things we feel the loss of during these trying times are bars, and the tasty beverages they provide. But never fear; these four bars and restaurants have figured out a way to bring the bar – or at least the beverages – to your home.
Huck’s Filling Station prides itself on offering both “local bounty” and globally-inspired food and drink. Currently, they are offering beer, wine, mixers and ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktails, available for pickup. Try the Jeff Goldblum with tequila, sherry, elderflower, blood orange and citrus, a classic espresso martini made better or the C’est la Vie with mezcal, pisco, aperol, elderflower, lime and bitters. They have all the usuals, too, from negronis to Bloody Marys and even fancy bellini and mimosa kits.
How to get it: Pre-order online (orders are ready in twenty-five to thirty minutes) at upserve.com.

Massimo offers fine Italian cuisine, and like many restaurants, it isn’t letting the pandemic stop them from feeding the people. The restaurant is offering curbside pickup and delivery for food and drinks, including the wine list currently at 50 percent off, and some of their specialty drinks, including their Strawberry Gimlet Cocktail or their Prickly Pear Jalapeno Margarita. There’s also a sparkling berry sangria mixer and spicy bloody mary to go.

Whether you crave the Eddy’s famous house punch, a cold one off the long list of draft beers or an intricate well-balanced cocktail, the Eddy is slinging delicious drinks for you to take home. The beloved bar is now offering pickup for snacks, drinks and cocktail mixers. Each bottle makes approximately two drinks. Try the Culture Club with bahnez mezcal, creme de cassis, pomegranate, lime and bubbles or the Tropic Reboot with rum, fresh lime, passion fruit and a touch of cinnamon. You can also never go wrong with the Old Fashioned, and the Eddy’s small takeout bottle makes three cocktails, while the large makes six.

This Providence bar is gearing up to produce “popup” order-for-pick-up events, in which they post a link on their Instagram on a certain date and give customers twenty-four hours to order. Far West’s first-try at takeout cocktails was posted earlier this week for Friday the 15th, and it sold out very quickly. Stay tuned and check the Instagram page for updates about future pop-ups.
How to get it: Find the link posted on the Instagram page @farwestpvd in their bio, watch for announcements of dates, set yourself a reminder and order immediately when the link goes live!
