Unless you've been living under a rock, you are probably accepting the fact that social distancing is part of our lives for the foreseeable future. So in this time of self-isolating, working from home and trying not to go crazy, I wanted to share with you 5 ready-to-drink cocktail brands that are worth adding to your next grocery delivery order.
I've chosen my favorite brands that might not be on your radar so you can use this new found free time to discover new favorites yourself. In no particular order, here are the five canned cocktail lines (plus 2 more because I can't help myself) that you should absolutely try to get your hands on.
This boozy coffee canned cocktail is perfect for when still *technically* working from home but could really use a cocktail to get you through. It is available in 4 flavors. I love all of the flavors but vanilla cinnamon is my current favorite.
You can read my reviews of each flavor here and here.
The Cafe Agave canned cocktails are currently available in stores like Total Wine and World Market in AZ, CA, NV and NY with new states added all the time. If you are not in those areas don't worry, you can use this link to order the Cafe Agave coffee cocktails online and have them shipped right to your house.
This bottled cocktail line is perfect if you are craving a real craft cocktail from a hipster bartender to tide you over until after this whole quarantine over. The Austin Cocktails will make you legitimately think it came from a swanky bar, hand mixed by a master mixologist. I tried one of their margaritas a few years ago and I'm still dying to try more of their amazing ready-to-drink craft cocktails.

If you love a solid cocktail made exactly how a classic cocktail should be made then look no further than Crafthouse Cocktails. These are available in larger bottles (perfect for when you are stuck at home anyway) and their new single serve aluminum bottles which are just so fun. Their line up includes all the classics. I tried their Moscow Mule and was floored! I have my sights set on their Gold Rush next.

Bartles & Jayme
While this is technically a wine cooler, the Bartle & Jaymes canned cocktails are so much cooler than what I think of as a wine cooler. They have really changed it up and their flavor combos are so fun. I tried their watermelon mint earlier this year and was so surprised by how much I love it. This is the canned cocktail to try if you are soooo ready for summer and looking forward to the days when we can all be on the beach together again.

Barcoop Bevy cocktail mixers
Okay, so technically this one is a cocktail mix so you might need to add liquor to your order as well but if you are craving a unique cocktail that can control the booziness of (aka you are ready for a stooooong drink), this is the one to look for. They have several different cocktails in their line. I personally love the spicy strawberry margarita.

The Barcoop Bevy mixers are easy to find at Total Wine, World Market and several other online retailers. Use this link to view a full list.
I am absolutely in love with both of these brands. The only issue is that they are still pretty regional and a little harder to get, especially if you are on the West coast like me. If you are in Nashville or Atlanta, you are in luck! These local brands are crushing the canned cocktail game and you should absolutely get your hands on as many of these as you can!
Tip Top Proper Cocktails
Because if there was ever a time we all deserved a stiff drink, it's right now. These tiny cans pack a serious punch with the "lightest" cocktail being 52 proof. I've tried all three of their cocktails and I would happily order several of each but if I had to pick just one, I say go big and order the 74 proof Old Fashioned
The only drawback here is that these are mostly available only in the South right now. If you're in Atlanta you are in luck. It's a little tricker for the rest of us. Here is a link where you can find Tip Top Cocktails in your area.
And read my review of their Old Fashioned here, their Manhattan here, and their Negroni here.
34 North Cocktails
Speaking of strong drinks, we could all use several of those about now and 34 North Cocktails has some of the best I've ever had. If you live near Nashville, I'm already super jealous of you but knowing that you can also get your hands on these today makes me hate you just a little. If you feel like sharing the love and sending me a can or two I would love you forever. *wink wink*

Have you tried any of these canned cocktails? I'd love to hear your take in the comments. Cheers babes!
Visiting my shop for some extra cute cocktail flair as seen in the photos. Cheers!
@ashley – I haven’t and I really really want to! I loved going to 10 Barrel when I lived in Portland and I’m dying to get my hands on their canned cocktails. I haven’t seen them in stores near me yet but I have my eye out for them. Thank you for the tip!
