Level up your iso weekend with these takeaway cocktails and booze delivery services

It's beginning to look a lot like cocktails.

Just because we’re back within the confines of our houses doesn’t mean we can’t get a bit loose on a Saturday night, and these local businesses slinging takeaway cocktails and delivering booze in lockdown are here to make sure of it.

Here’s where you can find some goodies in town:

Wah Bah

These guys were quick to pick up on the allure of takeaway cocktails, slinging these babies since the first lockdown.

So far, there are six creations on the menu alongside some rotating specials. For $15 each, you can indulge in the Espresso Quarantini (with Manuka honey vodka, Licor 43, Little Dripper & Coffee liquor), the Licor 43 Sour, the Strawberries & Cream, or their famous Tokyo Moon made with Blue caracao, Pavan & Apple juice. There’s also a Garden Mojito made with Raspberry Gin AND the Great Ocean Berry complete with Raspberry Gin, Strawberry liquor,lemon juice & fresh strawberries.

And each cocktail is equivalent to two standard drinks so that in itself is a big win.

You can also get bottles of wine and a few select ciders and beers too.

Currently available for phone orders only (5222 6377).

Bottles and Barrels

Bottles & Barrels have long been a favourite of ours. If not for their coffee and delicious brunch options, then for their carefully curated selection of boutique wine and craft brews. Thankfully, we can still get our regular fix of the latter with their delivery service.

If you’re feeling wine, you have the option of twin packs or six-packs of white wine, red wine, or a mixed selection. By the looks of it, it seems the team are in charge of what wine you get, but their recommendations are always 11/10 so we have no doubt you’ll be getting the best of the best.

If beer is more your style, you’ve got the options of a slab of Stone and Wood Pacific Ale, a slab of Moon Dog lager, Bertie cider or you can get a six-pack or slab of mixed craft beer – perfect if you’re feeling adventurous!

Boasting free delivery to the Geelong area, any orders placed before 3pm will be delivered that evening, while orders after 3pm will be delivered the next day. All you need to do is place your order online or call the team on 0404 169 806 to organise.

ALMA

Geelong really scored big when chef Jesse Hughes (formerly Vue Grand Queenscliff) opened up ALMA, a contemporary South American shared-style restaurant back in 2017. In what was Hughes’ first venture, ALMA has become one of Geelong’s best dining destinations, earning a solid reputation for their South American flavours featuring the best produce served in an unadulterated way, edgy styling and exceptional service.

Thankfully you can still get your Alma fix throughout lockdown, and even indulge in some delicious takeaway cocktails too. For $15, you can choose from the Pisco Sour, the Pomegranate Sour, or the Espresso Martini.

You can order online or call them on 0498012622.

Alisitos is a Mexican Baja Bar and Grill in Torquay and is an absolute hidden gem.

And now their full menu is also available to take away, adding takeaway margs to the list. Choose from a Margarita jug, or a Fiesta kit which includes a Margarita jug, 2 cocktail glasses, lime and salt.
