Canned cocktails are no longer limited to the humble wine cooler. Thanks, in part, to a surge in interest of craft cocktail culture — seriously, how many at-home cocktails have you made this month? — we’re now able to enjoy a wide array of quality “ready-to-drink” cocktails from the comfort of our own homes using little more than our thumbs or a bottle opener. Sales of these beverages grew 90% in the past year, and considering that many bars across the country may be closed for months to come, we have a feeling that growth is only going to continue.

But we hope canned cocktails is a trend that’s here to stay. They grant access to an experience that was previously only available in a subset of bars, or if you had the time, energy and ingredients to whip up a mint julep or espresso martini from home. Here’s to taking the guesswork out of great mixed drinks with a selection from some top brands.


New to liquor shelves, these mixes offer a twist on the reliable bar staple. Light and sparkling, each 12-ounce can contains only 97 calories — but packs a lot of flavor. Choose from Lime & Cucumber, Grapefruit & Rosemary and Raspberry & Lemongrass.

A blend of vodka, Kahlua liquor and Arabica coffee, all you need to do to enjoy this cocktail is pour it into a glass. But what about the crema? Each can contains a smart nitrogen widget that brings bubbles to the surface once it’s popped open, creating a foam that’s similar to a freshly shaken martini.
