TGIF cocktail lovers! I have something super exciting for all the whiskey lovers this week. I'm trying an Old Fashioned and Manhattan from Dashfire and I couldn't be more excited! They were nice enough to send me their full line of cocktails to try so I'll trying a few each week for the next few weeks starting with the whiskey cocktails of course. You know those are my favorite!
I love the branding around this line. It is slightly masculine, super elevated, and just very Mad Men. The cans are tiny too which usually means super boozy when it comes to ready-to-drink cocktails. All the signs point to these being great canned cocktails so let's give them a try!
Here is my official review of the Dashfire Old Fashioned and Manhattan:
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
Both of these canned cocktails have that rich whiskey sweetness you'd expect from a whiskey cocktail but nothing over the top.
In the grand scheme of cocktail sweetness, neither one of these Dashfire canned cocktails were particularly sweet. True to form, the Old Fashioned was a smidge sweeter. (Also known as the main reason I prefer Old Fashioneds to Manhattans.)
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
The Dashfire canned cocktails might be small but dang do they pack a punch! Both the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan officially ring in at 38% ABV!! Don't mistake these as dainty little cocktails because of their size or they'll knock you on your booty!
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
OMG yes!! These are now officially on my top whiskey cocktail list - which is saying something because I've been lucky enough to try a lot of really good ready-to-drink whiskey cocktails. The Dashfire Old Fashioned and Manhattan will be joining my list of favorites along with Tip Top Proper Cocktails, Slow & Low, 34 North, and Cocktail Squad.
If you want to give these ready-to-drink whiskey cocktails a try, you can order them online from Total Wine and have them delivered to your door.
I'll be back next week with two more Dashfire cocktails so make sure to come back for that. Until next week cocktail lovers, Cheers!
