New Law for To-Go Cocktails In Effect

A law allowing Missouri restaurants and bars to sell to-go cocktails permanently went into effect on Saturday. The rules were relaxed last year during the pandemic but are now permanent. Under the rules, the containers cannot have an opening for a straw, the clear container must have the restaurant or bars logo or name on it, and the container must be labeled to identify that the drink contains alcohol. Plus, the new law states people must also purchase food with the order.
