Need a drink? Score some booze to-go at these Houston restaurants

The OG Margarita (Andrew Thomas Lee)

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.
