In the greatest plot twist since Bruce Willis being dead at the end of Sixth Sense, the woesome lockdown measures have actually brought us something wonderful: more alcohol delivery in Toronto than ever. (In addition to safety and all that other good stuff.) No, we're not talking about the regular old LCBO shtick, but restaurants, bars, breweries and more, all offering delivery in Toronto.
So snuggle up and order your favourite food for takeout or delivery (or if you're feeling ambitious order one of these grocery boxes to make your own meal), and wait for your drinks and eats to arrive at your door.
From DIY cocktail kits that come with your spirit of choice and all the trimmings, to curated wine boxes and beer bundles, here are all the options for alcohol delivery in Toronto that we're thirsty for.
