Hi cocktail lovers! I am back with more Crown Royal cocktail cans. If you missed it, last week I tried the Crown Royal Peach Tea cans. (You can read that full review here if you want to catch up.) This week I'm trying the Crown Royal Washington Apple cans and I am hoping that I like the apple more than I liked the peach. Fingers crossed!
Even though the Crown Royal cocktail cans are stunning on their own - and textured even! - I still wanted to add a garnish to dress up my cocktail so I grabbed a "Cheer" Swizzly Stick from my shop. I love how the lime green of this Swizzly Stick matches the green of the apples on the can. For this garnish, I cut thin slices of apple and slide it onto the end of the Swizzly Stick. I love having the option to add garnish to canned cocktails because it makes them feel just as fancy as a cocktail that is served in a glass.
Now it is time to sip!
Here is my official review of the Crown Royal Washington Apple canned cocktail:
Okay, this one is better than the Peach Tea. This one tastes much closer to the original Crown Royal Washington Apple whiskey that the canned cocktail is inspired by. I could taste the apple right away. It was much more flavorful than the peach but not overpowering.
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
The Crown Royal Washington Apple cocktail in a can isn't as sweet as I expected. It is right in the middle for me on the sweetness scale.
I would like to note that I didn't pick up any of the whiskey sweetness that usually comes from whiskey cocktails. It might be there but if it is, it is masked by the apple flavor.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 7% ABV. I will say I did feel more of an instant buzz from the Crown Royal Washington Apple than I did from the Peach Tea. It is 7% which is nothing to sneeze at (do people still say that? or is that just my family?) but it isn't as strong as some of the other ready-to-drink whiskey cocktails I've tried.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
Yes. Probably. I probably would buy the Crown Royal Washington Apple cans again for a party or event. I liked this cocktail and Crown Royal is a brand that people ask me about pretty often so I know people would be excited to try these if I brought them to the party.
I have one more Crown Royal cocktail can to try - the Whiskey and Cola - so I'm excited to see which Crown Royal cocktail will end up being my favorite.
