This ought to put the “cheer” in your “Cheers!”

Online services and apps for the lushes among us have made getting tipsy at home far easier, offering delivery of wines, beers and spirits — and even a spirit-infused ice cream. Most will even deliver it in a matter of hours — if you really can’t wait.

Plus, we’ve got some discount codes available for first time users of these services.

And don’t try anything funny, teens. To receive an alcohol delivery, you must show a valid government ID at the door to prove you are at least 21 years old. In most cases, the account holder must be the one to receive the delivery in-person. Some services charge a fee if alcohol can’t be delivered and must be returned.
