The Great Booze Delivery App Race

Considering the fact that you don't have to leave your couch to get Chinese food or even put your iPad down to get laid, it's safe to say that the world is getting scarily more convenient with each passing day. Delivery apps are a dime a dozen, but it should come as no surprise that our favorite variety are the ones that bring you instantaneous booze. 

In keeping with our huge appreciation for all things tech (and liquor), we decided to hold the ultimate competition to find out which booze delivery app was the fastest. So we ordered three bottles of Buffalo Trace Bourbon at the exact same time—12:00 p.m.—set our timers, and waited.

These are the results. 

FIRST PLACE: MINIBAR - 06:15


SECOND PLACE: DRIZLY - 11:00


THIRD PLACE: THIRSTIE - 12:33



Good looks to Buffalo Trace for inadvertently playing a huge role in our awesome little competition. Who's getting drunk tonight? THESE GUYS. Meaning us. Supercompressor. Go team. 

Editor's Note: Upon finishing this experiment, our editorial assistant's bank froze her credit card due to an excess of alcohol-delivery app registrations. She has no regrets.
