Hi cocktail lovers and friends! This week's canned cocktail review is a little bit of good news and a little bit of bad news. The good news is I'm trying another ready-to-drink cocktail from my favorite Aussies at Curatif and their cocktails have yet to let me down. They are all so amazing. The bad news is, these are still not available in the US. BUT I think you can order their full line from their website and have them shipped over. I fully think that is worth it based on my previous reviews of their Tommy's Margarita, Espresso Martini, Negroni, and Pineapple Daiquiri.
This week I am trying their Bloody Mary. I've been saving this one for a few months because I wanted to wait until I had my Bloody Mary Swizzly™ set available in my shop. (If you haven't check out my Swizzlys, they are my new patent pending drink marker + cocktail stick that has notches to help keep it and your garnish in place on the rim of your glass. You can place it across the rim using the first notch or hang it from the rim using the angled notched. It's pretty fun!)
So let's see if the Curatif Bloody Mary was worth the wait!
Here is my official review of Curatif Bloody Mary:
True to form, this Curatif canned cocktail is bomb! They have their cocktails dialed in and I'm so so so bummed they aren't available in the US just yet. But they are coming soon so just file this review away for future use.
This ready-to-drink Bloody Mary is the BEST I've had. I love Bloody Mary's so the bar is pretty high for me. I've reviewed several mixes and at least one other canned version but this one takes the cake. It is rich yet smooth. You can taste all of the ingredients so it as has this wonderful depth of flavor. Sometimes Bloody Mary's can be just one note, good but kind of flat. This is the exact opposite.
One of the things that struck me most about this drink after I got over the initial joy of the complexity of the flavor was that there is one flavor that is coming through that is 100% Bloody Mary but isn't the flavor that you usually think of first. I think it is possibly olive juice but I'm not totally sure. Whatever it is, it is amazing!
10/10 would definitely recommend to a friend!
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
No sweetness here. It is a Bloody Mary after all. :)
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 9% ABV which means it will definitely kick off your weekend brunch right.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
Yes!! Give me alllll of these. If these were available locally, it would 100% be my brunch bestie. Sadly for us, like all of the other amazing Curatif cocktails I've tried they aren't available in the US just yet. Fingers crossed we get these stateside very very soon!
