Our Favorite Canned Cocktails For Summer

January 7, 2024
At Primary Goods, we have an independent selection process & only review what we fully endorse. If you buy a product via our links, we may earn a commission.

Summer’s all about relaxing and unwinding, and there’s nothing better for that than kicking back with a refreshing cocktail. The only problem? Actually making the drinks. Let us take a few steps out of your summer cocktail routine (that’s a thing, right?) and present you with a lineup of truly excellent canned cocktails that are sure to inspire some incredible summer nights.

  1. Cutwater Spirits - Tequila Paloma

Here we have a perfectly balanced blend of grapefruit, soda water, and Cutwater Spirits’ award-winning tequila. The grapefruit flavor is not too sweet, but has a nice tartness that balances well with the tequila, giving it a pleasant and refreshing taste. Full disclosure: I may have had a few too many of these at book club last week and I came through with some absolutely shocking takes on Jane Austen’s Persuasion.

  1. Novo Fogo - Sparkling Caipirinha Mango and Lime

Made with organic cachaça, mango syrup, and real lime juice, Novo Fogo's Sparkling Caipirinha is like a taste of Brazil in a can. The carbonation gives it a light and refreshing fizz, making it a great option for a hot summer day. We found it to be sweet, but not overpoweringly so, with the earthy flavor of the cachaça balancing out the natural sweetness of the mango.

  1. Crook & Marker - Blackberry Lime Margarita

Made with organic alcohol and zero added sweeteners, this delicious option from Crook & Marker is packed with real fruit flavor. The Blackberry Lime Margarita is a slightly tart and sweet concoction that goes down easy — the perfect choice for a warm summer evening.

  1. Post Meridiem - Lemongrass Vodka Gimlet

A unique and refreshing twist on a classic cocktail. Made with premium vodka and infused with natural lemongrass flavor, this canned cocktail offers a perfect balance of sweetness and an herbal, slightly citrusy tang. Plus, look how cute n’ tiny the can is!

  1. Two Chicks Cocktails - Sparkling Cranberry Tartini

Made with premium vodka and real cranberry juice, this cocktail has a perfectly balanced flavor profile – not too sweet, not too tart. It’s also infused with carbonation, which adds a nice fizz and gives it a light and refreshing mouthfeel. It’s worth mentioning it’s won a few awards, so we’re not the only ones who felt transported by this refreshing beverage.

  1. Mayne & Co Modern Mimosa

A delicious and easy-drinking canned cocktail designed to perfectly complement brunch. Made with premium Italian sparkling wine and real California orange juice, this cocktail is the on-the-go mimosa you didn’t know you needed.

  1. Phreshly - G’iddem

With flavors inspired by the founders’ Ghanaian roots, the G’iddem canned cocktail is a refreshing blend of blueberry and lemongrass with a pineapple rum base. The hint of nutmeg spice at the finish is a pleasant surprise. Immediately apparent upon taking a sip is the attention to detail that went into creating this bespoke cocktail recipe. These are meant to be enjoyed over ice, but are also delightful on their own.
