Yes, Instacart can deliver spirits to your home. Simply go to the Instacart website or use the Instacart app, find a store nearby that carries your favorite spirit and order it. Your Instacart shopper will then deliver it to you within the same day. If you prefer, you can also pick your Instacart order up at the store's curbside pickup location when available. If you pick this option, you'll get a notification that your order is ready and instructions on where to park. Once you arrive, let your Instacart shopper know you're ready, and they'll bring your spirits to your car.
If you've placed an order through Instacart for a specific type of spirit or particular brand and the store is out of it, your Instacart shopper will contact you and offer you three options:
- Find the Best Match: By default, your Instacart shopper will try and find the best match or replacement for your bottle of spirits.
- Pick Specific Replacement: However, if you prefer to find your own replacement bottle of spirits, simply go to the Instacart website or use the Instacart app. Find your item, tap or click on it, and then choose Pick Specific Replacement. You'll see a variety of options and recommendations for a replacement bottle. If you find something you like, choose that bottle, and your Instacart shopper will deliver that one to you.
- Don't Replace: If you're not able to find a suitable replacement for the spirit you're looking for, choose the Don't Replace option for a refund.
When your Instacart shopper arrives at your home, you'll need to show proof of ID, as you must be 21 years of age or older. Acceptable forms of ID include a state-licensed driver's license, a passport, a U.S. military ID, or a state-issued ID card.
In general, a 750-milliliter bottle, known as a fifth, will yield about 16 drinks when you use a 1 1/2 ounce pour of the spirit. If you're using a mixer such as a pre-made Bloody Mary or Margarita mix, calculate about a quart of mixer for every three guests. You'll also want to stock up on cocktail, highball, or margarita glasses, drink stirrers, ice, garnishes, and napkins. When you're holding a gathering, you can also order most party supplies through Instacart and have them delivered the same day. If you need to shop at another store for your party supplies, you can order from multiple stores and have Instacart shoppers deliver them to you, so you don't have to leave the house.
Whether you need spirits for your next gathering, to make your favorite cocktail, or to sip over ice while relaxing in front of a crackling fireplace, enjoy the convenience of ordering your spirits through Instacart.
