COLUMBUS — To-go alcoholic beverages could become permanent in Ohio. This spring, during the state's big push to flatten the curve, with no dining allowed in restaurants, Gov. DeWine announced restaurants that currently have a liquor license had permission to sell alcoholic drinks with carryout and delivery orders.

The Ohio House passed legislation on Wednesday to allow the sale of cocktails to-go from restaurants and bars in the state.

Currently, 33 states plus the District of Columbia are allowing restaurants and/or bars to sell cocktails to-go, bottled spirits to-go, or both. Other states, including Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Iowa, and the District of Columbia, are also considering making these policies permanent.
