Our Top Favorite Canned Cocktails Perfect for Your Summer Endeavors (or adventures)

The Juice

There is nothing better than a delicious cocktail after a long summer day, except of course one you didn’t make yourself!  Pre-made canned cocktails have gotten significantly popular over the years, and for good reason too.  No preparation of mixing or shaking ingredients is needed, simply throw one of these in your pool bag or tailgate cooler and enjoy your day. 

These are often sold in packs of four or six cans, and are usually considered to be on the pricer side.  Don’t let this put you off entirely, as these are stronger than most beers and you are getting more alcohol for your dollar.  With there being such an overwhelmingly wide variety, what are the best, on the go canned cocktails for this summer?  We got you covered, here are our top 6 favorite boozy canned beverages that are a summer essential.

Cutwater Spirits Whiskey Mule

Cutwater makes a variety of delicious canned cocktail options, and these Whiskey Mules are the perfect choice for a summer barbecue or a family get together.  “Our ginger beer, a hint of lime, and aromatic bitters flavor makes for the start of a perfect mule. The addition of our award-winning Bourbon adds a depth of flavor to turn the classic on its head. Spicy, bold, and ready-to-enjoy.” (-Cutwaterspirits.com)

High Noon Grapefruit, Lime and Mango

Created using only real vodka, real Juice and sparkling water, we favored the Grapefruit, Lime and Mango flavors the best out of the variety pack.  The grapefruit flavored seltzer carries a fizzy and citrusy taste, while the Lime flavor has hints of sourness that is a perfect complement to any Taco Tuesday.  Mango is perfect for summer fridays, with bright and snappy sparkling deliciousness.

Cutwater Spirits Gin and Tonic

Refreshing.  Citrusy.  A Classic.  This updated version of a Gin and Tonic has a clean and bright taste, with hints of grapefruit and cucumber tonic.  

Cutwater Tequila Paloma

Another fan favorite, but with a Grapefruit Citrus Twist.  This sparkling citrus cocktail has a floral aroma with a smooth and sweet finish.  

High Noon Watermelon

Another backyard barbecue’s favorite choice, these can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.  Perfect for people who understand that all Saturdays are indeed holidays, and simply refreshing. 

With that being said, which of these refreshments are you planning to take with you on your summer adventures?
