The canned cocktail market has exploded in recent years and we are here for it! Whether you are watching the sun set from the beach, or your living room window, having a pre-mixed cocktail in a can is as refreshing—and easy—as it gets. Bestselling liquor brands like Absolut, Jack Daniels and Jim Beam are all churning out canned cocktails, as well as delicious newcomers like LA bartender Aaron Polsky and the husband and wife team behind Volley. The convenience of having a craft cocktail in a can, instead of having to go to a bar to get one, or store to stock up on ingredients, can’t be overlooked either. And we’re all about imbibing with ease these days.

We’ve rounded up the 26+ best canned cocktails to sip right now and trust us when we say these are our favorites. Perfectly balanced, uniquely labeled, and expertly blended, it doesn’t get better than flip and sip! And with so many unique flavors to choose from (like Blood Orange, Passion Fruit-Lime, Ginger and Hibiscus), along with oldies but goodies like the Moscow Mule and gin and tonic, you’ll be set for any mood you might be in.

Don’t be fooled by the pretty packaging, either. These canned cocktails can pack a punch! Alcoholic content varies by brand, so be sure to read the label to get an idea of what you are in for. And, if you are being mindful of calories or carbs, there are gluten-free, sugar-free, zero-carb, and low-calorie options available as well. Cheers!


If you’ve ever attempted to craft a Caipirinha at home, you know it can be quite involved. Novo Fogo’s compact cans make it super simple to enjoy this Brazilian cocktail at home, no complicated ingredients—or skill set involved. Available in three flavors (Original Lime, Passion Fruit-Lime and Mango-Lime), they have less sugar, fewer calories and carbohydrates, and lower alcohol by volume, but only use 100% natural ingredients.
