We may know of Postmates as a great way to get food delivered directly to us, but did you know that they deliver alcohol too?

You may already be using Instacart to have groceries delivered right to your door. But Instacart can also deliver alcohol to you as well, as long as it's from select stores like BevMo! and Total Wine & More Delivery. As long as you're in an Instacart-serving city with one of these retailers close-by, then you can have your booze delivered along with the rest of your groceries.
