This week it has been a hot topic that Amazon Prime delivers wine, whiskey, and beer to your doorstep in an hour or less. *clink* It's okay to show your excitement, I did too!

Of course, being an avid wine drinker, I was ecstatic. Before opening my browser, I opened my wine cabinet to see what I needed. To channel my inner white girl, I figured I’d go with Rosé. My hype was through the roof that I poured myself a glass of Chardonnay to celebrate.

The fun doesn't stop here. If wine isn't your thing, then you can order beer or whiskey. With fall being right around the corner these tips on pairing food and pumpkin beer will save lives.

And of course, if wine and beer do not appeal to you, then whiskey it is! Surprisingly, whiskey has health benefits that you probably didn't even know about.

So fill that glass, chug that beer, and down that shot! It'll taste better knowing you didn't even have to put shoes on to get it. Amazon Prime delivering wine, whiskey, and beer is the best thing to happen, right!?

Dear Amazon Prime, “I’m not mad at you, I’m just very disappointed."

Prime Now is where the magic is supposed to happen. Apparently only selected cities have the ability to deliver wine, whiskey, and beer and St. Petersburg/Tampa is not one of them.

This heartbreaking news really put a damper on my day.

Since Prime Now is still up-and-coming with wine, whiskey, and beer deliveries, my hope is that they will expand beyond the 12 cities. Downtown St. Pete is booming in every way, so they better hop onboard soon to keep up. 

If you live in one of these cities, then you are in luck and can sip sip hooray all you wish:

Cincinnati, OH

Chicago, IL

Columbus, OH

Los Angeles, CA

Minneapolis, MN

New York City, NY

Phoenix. AZ

Portland, OR

Richmond, VA

San Diego, CA

San Francisco Bay Area

Seattle, WA

Also, for the lucky ones, Amazon’s Prime Now two-hour delivery service is free, but if you are needy AF then there's an option to get one-hour delivery is $7.99.

The thought of being able to open the Prime Now app, kick back on the couch, make the purchase, and wait for your delivery seems like the next best thing. If only St. Pete, FL could be apart of the fun. 

So, even though I love Amazon and how much they are advancing, I am very hurt by the fact that they didn’t consider delivering to all of their wine fanatics. May we all say a prayer to the wine Gods in hope that things will expand properly so Amazon Prime delivers wine to our doorstep.
