A Way to Order Unlimited Booze With Your Phone

A mobile app called Drizly will let smartphone users order wine, beer and spirits right to their door in forty minutes or so. Yay for the dissolution of self restraint!

The holidays can be a stressful time -- so stressful that they can quite literally 'drive one to drink.' Why spend your precious time off from work hauling yourself to and from the liquor store? Now, thanks to the enabling magic of technology, you can push a few buttons on your smartphone and have all of your precious brands delivered right to you.

A recently launched app called Drizly is the Grubhub, or Netflix if you are an alcoholic, of alcohol delivery services. It works simply enough. You pick what kind of alcoholic haze you want to get lost in and in around forty minutes, it'll show up at your doorstep wearing a red bow and a sign that reads 'drink me now.'

The downside? Like most new technologies, it is in beta and only available in a small number of cities. That is likely to change as people discover the freeing notion of ordering bottles of wine while in their underwear.
