19 Carry-Out Cocktails from Cincinnati Bars and Restaurants You Must Try

Ordering cocktails from your favorite bars and restaurants looks a little bit different these days as Ohio's and Kentucky's governors both ordered these establishments to temporarily close their dining rooms and spaces to the public in order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus. However, they have allowed — with stipulations — that dining and drinking destinations may sell cocktails to-go. So now you can wash down your tacos with a bottled margarita, or enjoy a boozy milkshake and burger, or slurp bourbon slushies with your Southern fried chicken, all while sittin' on your couch.
