As we begin to make our way into the winter months, the skies begin to grey, and the streets become windy as hell, we all begin to feel a little like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. To escape the mundane and survive the upcoming Thanksgiving Zoom, we’ve compiled a list of 14 local bars and restaurants offering to-go cocktails for pickup and delivery, all of which are a little more imaginative than Au Cheval’s Pickleback Kit, but just as effective during your virtual holiday gatherings.

Beatrix
While the restaurant has a variety of beer and wine to choose from, customers can also grab carry-out cocktails (serves two) for $20 each. The selection includes a blueberry gin collins, pineapple-habanero margarita, espresso old fashioned, ginger sangria, and a frozen piña express with rum, coconut liqueur, pineapple, coconut, and lime. Multiple locations, beatrixrestaurants.com

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba
The Spanish small plate concept offers beer, cava, wine, and cocktails for pickup and delivery. Each cocktail offering serves two and costs $26 each. The menu includes classic cocktails like margaritas, mojitos, and mezcal mules as well as more elaborate creations like La Paloma and El Botánico made with gin, chartreuse, lemon, agave, passion fruit, mint, basil, and orange bitters. 2024 N. Halsted, 773-935-5000, cafebabareeba.com

Club Lucky
No need to slide by the supper club for a buzz, it can be delivered. Through Grubhub you can order wine, six-pack, or single bottle brews, as well as a Quarantini Martini Kit beginning at $45, loaded with a liter bottle of private label Club Lucky vodka and your choice of olive. There’s also a Ketel One Mule Kit for $59 with your choice of plain, Grapefruit Rose Botanical, or Peach Orange Blossom Botanical Ketel One vodka. 1824 W. Wabansia, 773-917-0809, clubluckychicago.com

Daisies
The midwestern pasta-focused restaurant has a slew of boozy options. From beer to wine to craft cocktails, you can pick your poison for pickup or delivery. The cocktail selection includes bottled and ready-to-drink sips for $9.99 each, like a beet old fashioned, two gin options, and a House Nocino with Nocino liqueur, walnuts, cinnamon, orange peel, lemon peel, cloves, allspice, and vanilla bean. But beware, there is only a limited amount of each selection. 2523 N. Milwaukee, 773-661-1671, daisieschicago.com

Furious Spoon
A ramen-cocktail pairing sounds prime in cold climates. Guests can snag DIY home cocktail kits ($40), as well as beer pong and sake bomb packages ($20-$25). You might not be able to remember Thanksgiving this year with Furious Spoon’s help. Temporarily only offered at Logan Square and Lakeview locations, furiousramen.com

Kanela Breakfast Club
If you’re having a virtual brunch date, Kanela might be the move for pickup or delivery. The breakfast club offers a Bloody Mary kit with ($50) and without vodka ($20). If you’re in the mood for bubbles, you can order a mimosa package ($30) that includes two bottles of champagne and freshly squeezed juice. Multiple locations, kanelabreakfastclub.com

Kumiko
If you’re looking to switch up your typical cocktail order, take a stroll through the massive Kumiko menu available for pickup and delivery. Just a heads up, each offering has a limited quantity and may be sold out. You can pair your spirits with Japanese fare or just sip at your own leisure for an elevated night in. 630 W. Lake, 312-285-2912, barkumiko.com

La Luna
The taco shop offers up a variety of margaritas, palomas, and spiked agua de jamaica as both single and pitcher servings. Since having just one marg is rare, spring for the pitcher ($25-$32.50). You can also swap your tired eggnog for some of La Luna’s spiced horchata. 1726 S. Racine, 312-248-8940, lalunachicago.com

Lena Brava
The West Loop hotspot offers canned cocktails and margarita kits for both pickup and delivery. Canned cocktails serve one to two people, depending on your pour, and range from $12-$14. The kits, however, serve 12 and range from $60-$65. 900 W. Randolph, 312-733-1975, lenabrava.com

Lost Lake
Four days a week, Lost Lake offers up grab ‘n go cocktails from the storefront’s pickup window. The menu rotates each week and is available on the bar’s Instagram stories. Check out Instagram (@lostlakelovesyou) story highlights for each week's menu. The tropical cocktail bar also has private casks for delivery or pickup ranging from $55-$250. 3154 W. Diversey, 773-293-6048, @lostlakelovesyou on Instagram

Maplewood Brewery & Distillery

Three Dots and a Dash
