Cocktails 2.0

The latest “buzz” on the street is about some new alcohol delivery apps that have just popped up for both iPhone and Android. These apps will deliver firewater right to your door, no questions asked.

Now there is truly an app service for everything. If you need a ride, you can order an Uber or a Lyft. If you want take-out transported to your front door, you can order from a food delivery service like GrubHub or from apps like Postmates and Seamless. Now you can have booze delivered direct as well.

Saucey is one of the newest apps on the alcohol delivery scene. Their tagline is “Beer, wine & spirits delivered at the push of a button.” Their guarantee is that alcohol will be delivered between 20 and 40 minutes. And to make you feel like a responsible drinker, Saucey will donate a percentage of profits from every bottle sold to a charity that provides clean drinking water to those in need.


This company’s claim to fame is that they do not charge an extra delivery fee. They will also send bottles of hooch directly to your love interest as a gift, if you so choose. Who needs flowers anyway?


This app has limited delivery areas in SF but is widely available on the East Coast. They promise that spirits will be delivered within an hour. They also have informative product pages that give you ingredients of the booze you are selecting, as well as the alcohol content and the region it originates from.

Some might wonder why an alcohol delivery app is necessary when most big cities have a liquor store on every corner? We can see this being most convenient if you are throwing a party and have some extra thirsty guests, and you don’t want to run to the store. There is also the instance when you might want to have a few drinks at home, it’s late at night and you live in a sketchy area of town. Maybe you live a couple blocks from a liquor store and you don’t want to drive. Or maybe you just shouldn’t be driving. Whatever the reason, we think these apps are going to be pretty popular. Going for a “beer run” just might be a thing of the past.
