HOUSTON – Need a drink? We don’t blame you. While you’re holed up at home, savor some simple pleasures: booze and takeout.

Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill to permanently allow Texans to include alcohol in take-out orders from restaurants, achieving a shared goal of Abbott and restaurateurs.

The bill allows beer, wine and mixed drinks to be included in pickup and delivery food orders, securing a revenue stream made available to restaurants during the pandemic when their dining areas were forced to close.

Here’s are some Houston restaurants serving up drinks to-go:

The Original Ninfa’s

Snag “Houston’s most famous margarita,” the Ninfarita with the purchase of food. The Ninfarita is available by the glass for $9, a carafe for $30 or a gallon for $120. Ninfa’s is open for curbside pickup and delivery 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Ninfa’s on Navigation: 2704 Navigation Blvd., Houston, Texas 77003, (713) 228-1175

Ninfa’s Uptown Houston: 1700 Post Oak Blvd #1-190, Houston, TX 77056, (346) 335-2404
