Amazon Prime’s speedy alcohol delivery service, part of the online retailer’s Prime Now program, is expanding to more cities. Locations now include Cincinnati, Chicago, Columbus, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, Portland (Oregon), Richmond, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle. These lucky metros allow Prime subscribers to order beer, wine and spirits and get it delivered straight to their front door.

Primarily a grocery delivery service, Prime Now allows users in select metropolitan areas to order a wide array of household items. The delivery fee is $8 for one-hour delivery; two-hour delivery is free. The only catch? You must have an Amazon Prime account, though this boozy addition definitely makes the $99 annual membership fee a little easier to swallow.

If you don’t live in one of the cities mentioned above, fret not: Amazon plans on expanding the program to 20 major cities across the country.
