“It’s five o’clock somewhere.” Shorthand for “Let’s get a drink.” Bully for you, we’ve got a line on two new services that provide just that — one for the office, one for the after hours. Take heed.

First Round: Office Happy Hour

Instapour brings the mixologist to you. From veteran barman Warren Hode, who has more than 15 years in the slinging biz, Instapour is an app that delivers everything you need to make an expert cocktail tout de suite.

One part spirit. One part mix. Garnish. Shake. Serve.

You can order a la carte or sign up for a subscription that’ll land a new box at your door once a week. Of note: Mondays and Fridays are high demand.

Second Round: The After Hours

Hooch is a private libation club with benefits. And they’re here to take the sting off of those obligatory(ish) post-work meet-ups — by buying your first round. Every. Single. Day.

The skinny: you can download the app for free and peruse all their partner bars. For $10 a month, they’ll cover your first round (limit one per day) at any watering hole on the list. Every. Single. Day.

Log in nightly and that’s 30 spirits for the price of one.

So dial ‘em up.

After all — it’s five o’clock somewhere.
