NEW YORK — Amazon.com is getting into the holiday spirit, adding booze to its one-hour delivery service in Manhattan.

Until now it was only people in Seattle, the company’s hometown, who could imbibe within 60 minutes via Amazon. The company would not say Thursday if it was expanding that convenience elsewhere.

One-hour delivery of beer, wine and spirits costs $7.99. It’s free to members of Amazon’s $99 annual Prime loyalty program who can handle a two-hour wait.

Alcohol is one of 4,000 new items the online retailer just added to its Prime Now delivery, in addition to toys, electronics, wrapping paper and baking supplies. There are already more than a million things that can be delivered by Amazon in 20 U.S. metropolitan areas.
