National Canned Cocktail Day is the perfect reason to pop open canned cocktails.

Put down the beer and wine because National Canned Cocktail Day is here and it is time to pop open a can of refreshment for the food holiday. From classic cocktails to new flavor infusions, canned cocktails are filling the fridge. Give that cocktail shaker a rest and just open a can.

Over the past several months, many canned cocktails have appeared on store shelves. From well-known liquor brands to newer companies, there are a variety of options and at least one will spark your interest.

When picking a canned cocktail, think about the beverage flavors that you like. If you don’t like gin in a cocktail, you might not like a gin canned cocktail.

Then again, these beverages can be a way to try something new or see if your flavor preferences have changed. Just because you hated vodka in your 20s doesn’t mean that you might not have changed your mind.
