Newsom signs Cocktails-to-Go into law, cheers 🍻
California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill that would allow bars and restaurants to sell premade cocktails for pickup.
The law allows restaurants and bars to offer cocktails to go as long as they are served with food orders, a program that started as a temporary fix in the early days of the lockdown to help restaurants and bars to stay afloat.
🥤The law would allow bars and restaurants to sell cocktails-on-the-go through 2026
🍺Newsom signed another law that prolongs outdoor dining parklet permits and alcohol sales for a year.
🍹The law limits the number of distilled spirits in mixed beverages and cocktails to 4.5 ounces.
🍸The law calls for beverages to be "packaged in a container with a secure lid or cap sealed in a manner designed to prevent consumption without removal of the lid or cap by breaking the seal," according to the legislation's text.
