various canned cocktails on countertop

Novo Fogo Sparkling Caipirinha ($3.99 for a 200-milliliter can)

Brazil’s national cocktail (a refreshing combo of lime, sugar, and a rumlike spirit called cachaça) gets a little fizzy in this tin. When you can’t commit to a bottle of bubbly, crack open one of these instead.

Fling Craft Cocktails Mai Tai ($12.99 for four 12-ounce cans)

Calypso music, Hawaiian shirts, palm trees—this is a one-sip trip to Tiki Ville. The balance of fruit, spice, rum, and a hint of almond flavoring makes it the perfect party starter or beach beverage. 

Fishers Island Lemonade ($15.99 for four 355-milliliter cans)

Hard lemonades are often too sweet—or too sour. This one’s got a natural citrus flavor without the puckery finish or sugar overload. Try it stirred with unsweetened iced tea for a grown-up Arnold Palmer. 

Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock & Rye ($3.99 for a 100-milliliter can)

This mini can packs a punch: rich, amber rye; a touch of raw honey; orange; and bitters. Sip it neat or old-fashioned–style on ice. It’s also TSA-approved, so we’re so stashing some in our carry-ons. 

Cutwater Fugu Vodka Spicy Bloody Mary ($12.99 for four 12-ounce cans)

Quality vodka plus Cutwater’s award-winning Bloody Mary mix make this can dangerously drinkable. Crack one open before you brave the Sunday brunch crowds. 

Slalom Fox Whiskey Mule ($17.99 for four 355-milliliter cans)

Uplifting lime and carbonation meet warming whiskey and ginger for the ideal sunset beverage. Stick a sprig of mint in the can and you won’t miss the copper cup.
