Luckily, takeout cocktails are now permanently legal in Austin, allowing people to enjoy expertly mixed drinks in their own homes or outdoor settings. Local bars and restaurants have really stepped up their games to create the best to-go cocktails right now.

Keep in mind that, in accordance with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission guidelines, purchases of sealed mixed drinks and cocktail kits must be accompanied by food.

For specific drinks to-go, check out Eater’s guides to margaritas, frozen cocktails, beers, wines, and Jell-O shots. There’s also Eater’s map of the best cocktail bars in the city.

As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each bar/restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants/bars themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
