While the ready to drink cocktail market continues to be strong, canned cocktails can be poured into a glass and transformed into something more. That convenient can opens the possibilities of a satisfying sip.

Although many people enjoy an expertly crafted cocktail from a mixologist, the canned cocktail can bring a similar taste to places beyond the bar. For the offerings that are a true spirit versus a malt liquor, that can opens many possibilities to be poured into a glass.

For example, an option like Beach Whiskey Canned Cocktails from Darco Spirits, the summer inspired flavors satisfy on those leisurely, long day. At other times, pouring that Mango Lemonade into the glass with a tajin rim or with a piece of grilled mango increases the drinking enjoyment.

Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail plays into this concept of turning the simple pour into something more. Its Sunset Dream recipe amplified the rum but balances with some fruit juices. It feels like a cooling breeze on a warm summer night. Even if the drink is enjoyed on a chilly fall night, the tropical flavors bring good beach vibes.

Even just a simple garnish and a clear ice cube can and should make a difference. Just because canned cocktails are convenient does not mean that how they are served should be disregarded.
