These Canned Cocktails Provide All of the Flavor of a Boozy Drink Without Any of the Work

They’re the best ready-to-drink cocktails on the market right now.

Ready to drink, or RTD, cocktails have been around for a few years now but they have really taken off over the past six months as bars and restaurants have been forced to close during the pandemic. This trend doesn’t seem like it will go away once things get back to normal, so many bars, distilleries, and even individual bartenders are coming up with their own unique takes on canned cocktails. The focus of this growing category is on natural ingredients and flavors that are unique but still familiar. Not everyone has a fully stocked bar at home, or the time and energy to make a cocktail at the end of a long day, so RTD drinks provide a quick and easy way to relax and enjoy an adult beverage. Here are some of the best canned cocktails on the market right now.

Novo Fogo Sparkling Caipirinha

Novo Fogo makes cachaça, a Brazilian spirit similar to rum that is made from sugarcane juice. It’s also a core ingredient in the caipirinha, which the distillery now has canned versions of. There are three flavors available—lime, passion fruit, and mango. Each is made using the distillery’s own cachaca, along with other natural ingredients.
