Get ready for the summer: the best canned drinks

Pre-made canned drinks whether it’s a classic cocktails, spirit mixer or zero alcohol beverage are the definition of summer this year!

From your picnics in the park with your five best friends, to home barbeques and the return of camping and outdoor events, canned drink options have dominated the market to support our social calendars this summer.  With the warmer weather comes the annual allure for cocktails in a can known affectionately by the British public as tinnies due to their aluminium housing.

No matter your alcohol preferences are, this list has got you covered.


Cantails have mixed up some of our favourite traditional cocktails and popped them into a can form. From a Hawaiian Spritz, Mojito and a Passionfruit Martini there is certainly something for everyone in their roster of drinks. The best one of all? The Gin Paloma that turns the classic mix on its head with gin over tequila. It is then combined with thyme, bergamot and delicious citrus flavours. So for the hot summer days relaxing in your garden, get yourself stocked up with a few of these!

Bloody Classic

It is harder than you think to get a Bloody Mary just right. From the perfect balance of spice and heat to the pickling taste of the juice, if not created by someone in the know or a mixologist it can be a real disappointment. Bloody Drinks has come to your rescue with the Evening Standards Top Pick, they have launched the UK’s first Bloody Mary in a can. It is the combination of premium vodka, sherry and naturally sweet tomatoes from Italy and Spain with the Worcestershire and tabasco and a hint of soy for variety. We know we’ve tickled your taste buds with this one.

Crook & Marker

The only thing better than lemonade on a hot summer day is spiked lemonade. Crook & Marker’s variety pack includes raspberry, blueberry, watermelon, and a classic lemon flavour so everyone in your garden can be satisfied. Their zero sugar, infinite flavour strapline and the promise of premium organic super grain alcohol you can’t go wrong with this choice!

Ok so it isn’t strictly a can, but we felt is was worthy on a mention in this list. With a range of cocktails available varying from 12 – 24 ABV Boxtails are the perfect gift or night in drink you’ve been looking for. Their delicious flavours and variety packs means you can enjoy the mixologist experience from the comfort of your home or enjoy with a few friends on your next picnic outing.

Long Shot

Hard Seltzers are set to be everywhere this summer, so this final choice is a perfect way to top off your list of choices. Created using alcoholic fruit infused sparkling water, Long Shot is spearheading the trend with its range of Grapefruit, Strawberry & Rhubard and Raspberry & Blackcurrant beverages. The drinks are free from anything artificial but are packed with refreshing flavour.
