People finally seem to be tired of boozing in lockdown. Liquor sales soared last year when the pandemic began and people went into lockdown, but now those sales are dropping. According to Nielsen data, liquor sales slumped nearly two percent two weeks ago—for comparison, at the same time last year, sales were, on average, 55 percent higher than usual. During lockdown, people reportedly started ordering key ingredients to make mixed drinks at home, and some even spent the time trying new cocktails. Since then, some bars and restaurants have started reopening (many with limited indoor seating), and people just might be drinking more at those establishments, cutting down on the need to buy alcohol at home.
