Sure, mixing cocktails is fun, but sometimes you want something as low-maintenance as possible. Maybe you\u2019re out of ice, or you just don\u2019t have the energy to wash any more glassware.\r\n\r\nThe solution? Premixed cocktails in cans.\r\n\r\nAlthough canned cocktails (also called \u201cready-to-drink\u201d cocktails, or RTDs) aren\u2019t a new idea\u2014see our previous coverage here, and here\u2014offerings have expanded at a rapid clip. Also, what\u2019s in the can has increased in quality and diversity of styles.\r\n\r\nWhether your usual go-to is stirred and strong, or bubbly and refreshing, there\u2019s likely a can that will appeal to you. Pop these open at home or tote them along to enjoy while social distancing in the Great Outdoors.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you love a martini\r\nTry: Dashfire Elderflower Martinez\r\nTypically, a martini is a drink best made to order, and many people have very specific preferences about how they like theirs prepared.\r\n\r\nWhile the Martinez isn\u2019t a martini, it\u2019s in the ballpark. Some say it\u2019s a predecessor to the classic cocktail. Most importantly, this variation made by the team behind Dashfire Bitters is highly enjoyable, a bracing gin sipper mellowed by Sherry and elderflower liqueur.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you love tiki drinks\r\nTry: Post Meridiem The 1944 Mai Tai\r\nPour the contents of this teeny can into a tiki mug over plenty of ice, and you\u2019ve got an instant tropical treat. What\u2019s inside the can is a blend of Caribbean rums, orange Cura\u00e7ao, lime juice and orgeat, an almond syrup that\u2019s a staple for tropical drinks and not often seen in premixed cocktails. The \u201c1944\u201d is a nod to the year that tiki maven Trader Vic claims to have invented this rum classic at his bar in Oakland, California.\r\n\r\nAlso recommended: Post Meridiem\u2019s Hemingway daiquiri variation.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you love a Cosmopolitan\r\nTry: LiveWire Heartbreaker\r\nTo be clear, this isn\u2019t a Cosmo in a can. But the Heartbreaker hits many of the same notes: a crisp vodka base and a citrusy core of sweet-tart grapefruit intertwined with kumquat, jasmine and ginger.\r\n\r\nHeartbreaker, a new offering from Los Angeles bartender Aaron Polsky, features edgy artwork by tattoo artist Henry Lewis on the can. Additional drinks in the LiveWire portfolio created by other well-known bartending names are expected to follow, including one by Sother Teague, a 2017 Wine Enthusiast Wine Star Award winner. For now, the cans are only available in LA, but a national rollout is said to be on the way.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you love an Old Fashioned\r\nTry: Tip Top Old Fashioned\r\nAnother bartender-led project, this canned version of the whiskey classic was developed by Miles Macquarrie, of Kimball House in Decatur, Georgia. The brand, Tip Top Proper Cocktails, debuted in venues around Atlanta last fall. It\u2019s only available in Georgia for now, although the producer claims it\u2019s working on broader distribution.\r\n\r\nAppropriately, whiskey takes center stage, rounded out with a hint of sugar and a touch of orange bitters. If your taste runs toward muddled fruit in your Old Fashioned, a point of contention for purists, you\u2019ll have to add it yourself.\r\n\r\nThe Tip Top trio is rounded out by two other classics: a Manhattan and Negroni.\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you love a Cuba Libre\r\nTry: Greenbar's Coastal Rum & Cola\r\nAvailable this spring at selected Whole Foods nationwide, Los Angeles distillery Greenbar distills the spirit and cans the cocktail on site. The base resembles Greenbar\u2019s pleasing Crusoe Spiced Rum. A mix of organic botanicals add the right balance of allspice and vanilla to complement the bubbly cola. The end result is mellow and easy-drinking, just right for sipping al fresco, if you can.\r\n\r\nThe distillery also produces a line-up of low-alcohol, Spritz-style canned cocktails.
