Cocktails in a can are very easy and convenient. Especially in the summertime with all the barbecues, beach bonfires, and block parties going on. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the best brands to make them comes from the land of eternal summer: San Diego, California. They’re called, of course, Cutwater Spirits.
Owned and operated by Ballast Point Brewing Co. founder, Jack White, and former COO, Yuseff Cherny, this brand offers a full range of pre-mixed alcoholic cocktails – including a Bloody Mary, rum and ginger, rum and cola, gin and tonic, and several iterations on a vodka soda. They also range in alcohol content from a 6.2% ABV all the way up to 10%, so you can base your drink of choice not just on flavor profile, but on how hard you’d like them to hit you. And they only use top level ingredients, including house-distilled spirits as the beverage bases, pure cane sugar in the house-made cola, and the brand’s own grapefruit cucumber tonic and award winning Bloody Mary Mix. As far as ready-to-drink summer cocktails go, you can’t do better than this. Prices start at around $14 for a 4-pack.
