If 2021 was the year of the Seltzer, 2022 is poised to be the year of the Ready-to-Drink Cocktail.
Ready-to-drink Cocktails, or RTDs, are one of the fastest growing beverages in the alcohol industry. New flavours, more variety, and more brands are the main reasons behind this rapid growth.
We're pretty excited about this new trend, so we rounded up 7 of our favourite (NEW) RTDs to kick off 2022!
1. Bobby Margarita
Founded by SportCentre legend Bob McKenzie, the Bobby Margarita is brand new to the market - having launched in Alberta liquor stores in December 2021. So far, rave reviews.
2. Cabana Coast Moscow Mule
From the makers of Cottage Springs, Cabana Coast is crafted in the heart of downtown Toronto. If you like ginger and lime flavours, this cocktail is for you. Best served over ice.
3. Founder's Original Grapefruit Tequila Paloma
What's a Paloma you ask? Good question. A classic Paloma cocktail has tequila, grapefruit juice or grapefruit soda, and a wedge of lime. Try it at your next party and impress your friends when you tell them "It's Mexico's national cocktail".
4. Matt & Steve's Hot and Spicy Caesar
Another hot canned cocktail that recently hit liquor stores in Alberta. Matt & Steve's Caesar is a proudly Canadian cocktail that has a humbling backstory. Trust us when we say, this is definitely something different from your average canned Caesar.
5. Bombay Sapphire Gin & Tonic
For how popular the Gin & Tonic cocktail is, its a wonder it took so long for a quality canned version to hit the shelves. This version is very clean and crisp. Best served with a fresh wedge of lime or lemon over ice.
6. Gosling's Dark'n Stormy
Few people would argue that Gosling's isn't the quintessential rum for a Dark'n Stormy. For good reason too, its a fantastic dark rum with lots of spice. Try this canned cocktail at your next backyard party, or weeknight "unwind".
7. Collective Arts Gin Cocktail Variety
If you're a fan of craft beer, then you probably know Collective Arts makes great craft beer. Well, they've recently expanded into the gin game with some great canned cocktails. These cocktails are fresh and floral, perfect for a hot day.
