Canned Cocktail Review:
Seagram's Escapes

Posted by Jaime Fowler on

Seagram's Escapes canned cocktail reviewed by The Pursuit of Cocktails

Forget what you thought you knew about Seagram's!

When I was shopping for this week's cocktail I had a slightly different agenda than normal. This time around I was shopping for something to take to a beach picnic with my girls on the banks of Lake Tahoe. I knew I wanted to get something easy to share and not glass. I don't usually have a reason to buy a case of canned cocktails so I seized the moment! After narrowing my selection down to three options, staging an Instagram photo in the aisle of Total Wine and getting a crazy look from an old man, I eventually settled on this case of ready-to-drink cocktails from Seagram's Escapes.

To be perfectly honest, I didn't have the highest expectations but it fit the bill for what I was looking for - and my sugar loving friend Alyssa would be there so I knew even if these turned out to be crazy sweet, she'd still like them. :)

So let the games begin...

Here is my official review of the Seagram's Escapes:

Four cocktail shakers

I am grouping all four flavors together in this review. Since they came in a variety pack that seems like the thing to do. I would venture to say that two of the flavors could be 4.5/5 but I docked all of them a point because these canned cocktails are light on the booze. More about that down below...

In terms of flavor, I can not put into words how surprised I was at first sip. I was SHOOK! I (falsely) had in mind that the Seagram's Escapes would be similar to the gross things I used to drink in college when I was on a budget. It was a totally preconceived idea based on nothing. Don't be like me! Try these!!!

These ready-to-drink cocktails are delicious. My pack came with Strawberry Daiquiris, Fuzzy Navels, Jamaican Me Happy and Calypso Coladas. I brought them to a beach day with my girls and invited them to join me in this review. We all agreed that the Calypso Colada was the best of the four with Jamaican Me Happy coming in a close second - but they are ALL good. Do I still sound shocked? Because I am!


Five cocktail shakers
One shaker = not sweet at all  // Five shakers = your teeth may curl

If you've been waiting for a super sweet cocktail, this is the one for you.

And amazingly, they aren't gross sweet. They are super sweet, but they aren't sweet in the fake sweet way that is likely to make your stomach hurt. (Those always get me and I hate that.) These canned cocktails are sweet but not in the belly-ache kind of way. 


One cocktail shaker
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = Four Lokos

This canned cocktail officially rings in at 3.2% ABV. That is basically nothing ladies. I didn't know you could find a canned cocktail that low in alcohol. For my purposes - getting a nice fuzz - I'm not a huge fan of the low alcohol content. But it definitely has it's place in the ready-to-drink cocktail world.

The Seagram's Escapes would be perfect for an occasion where you want a little something to drink but you don't want to blur the edges too much. I think my girl Taylor said it perfectly:

"Surprisingly refreshing, not a lot of kick, which I liked because it’s enough to chill you out without overpowering your experience. Delicious and perfect for that summer beach day drink." 

Would I buy this canned cocktail again?

So, real talk? I LOVED the flavors of Seagram's Escapes but this girl needs a boozier drink. Lucky for me, as I was writing this review I stumbled upon a stronger canned cocktail from Seagram's - Seagram's Spiked!! I haven't seen these in the store so I did a little happy dance when I saw them on their website.

The Seagram's Spiked have 8% alcohol which is soooo much more my speed. I should probably review those too right?!?!? 

If you want to give the Seagram's Escape cocktails a try you can order this mulitpack online and have it delivered right to your door.

  • Something to keep in mind-Seagrams escapes are not the same as Seagrams Escapes Cocktails. I’ve now tried both. The re appear to be only 4 flavors of the cocktails which have only 100 calories, 5%alcohol. The Escapes are much sweeter , have 3.2% alcohol, I believe more calories and a much better taste. The Cocktails taste a bit more like various hard seltzers even tho they have names like Strawberry Margarita.

  • Never heard of this product before but have always loved light alcohol, fruit based coolers. $2 for 2 at 99 Cent Store and I couldn’t resist pineapple-coconut without the excess calories. Fab with nachos with avocado, did remind me of summer relaxing pool parties despite the windy day in Vegas. Wish I knew the ingredient list and if they use natural or artificial flavorings.

  • I DONT particularly care for the cans but I LOVE the bottles. I purchase 1 or 2. 12pk of Escapes just about every week. I have tried Aloha Ice 12pk a couple times. The stores here DONT seem to carry it often and I have NEVER even seen Italian Ice except on this site.
