Hi cocktail lovers! This week I'm coming to you with a canned cocktail I've had my eye on for a couple of years because, hello - the packaging is so gorgeous!! I haven't been able to find in my area but I spotted it at Total Wine on a recent trip to LA and purchased it immediately. I finally got my hands on the elusive Superbird Pink Grapefruit Paloma cans!!
If this canned cocktail is new to you, it is a grapefruit paloma made with the really good tequila (i.e. 100% blue agave tequila) and sweetened with agave nectar. It actually only has a handful of ingredients, all of which you can pronounce which is a major win. After trying so many ready-to-drink cocktails I've developed a pretty good eye for what is going to be good and having really good, natural ingredients like Superbird does is my #1 indicator that it is going to be a good cocktail.
Let's just hope I don't have my expectations too high! You know I had to add a bendy paper straw in a coordinating color because that is who I am as a person. Now let's sip!
Here is my official review of the Superbird Pink Grapefruit Paloma:
Yep! That might be even better than I was expecting!!
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
The Superbird Paloma canned cocktail is fairly sweet in the best way. This cocktail is sweetened with agave nectar which is my very favorite sweetener because it makes everything sweet without being sugary and it is a natural sweetener so you don't get any of that yucky chemical sweetness a lot of RTD cocktails rely on.
In this Superbird canned cocktail, the agave perfectly balances out the tart of the grapefruit juice while keeping everything tasting really fresh and natural. It is a masterpiece!
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 5.9% ABV which is light but not too light that it seems pointless. My friend and I agreed that this is a perfect day drinking cocktail. It is flavorful, boozy but not too boozy, and the ingredients are so good that it won't leave you feeling gross.
I can already tell the Superbird Paloma will be a go-to cocktail for me this summer!
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
All the yes! The Superbird Paloma is officially on my top 10 favorites of all times list. I'm only mad that it took me so long to try it. I could have had so many Superbird Palomas during the pandemic if I'd just tried it sooner. *face palm*
If you need me, I'll be sipping a Superbird in my back yard. I highly recommend picking up this canned cocktail asap. Don't be like me and wait just because you can't find it in your area. Go ahead and order it online. It will be worth it!
