Cool and Crafty RTDs to Drink
It seems like every day there is a new RTD on the market… that’s because there is.
Canned cocktails are all the hype this year. Not only because of their convivence but for their sleek, eye-catching packaging. These five RTDs should be on your radar. With the stay-at-home mandate that occurred last year, brands have created these canned cocktails so consumers can still enjoy a drink without sacrificing quality.
Each can is unique in its own way, and packaging plays a huge part. Packaging is just as important as the contents inside. For each canned cocktail to stand against each other, the can itself needs to be striking.
These five RTDs all have cans that are attention grabbers. Take a dip into the new wave of drinking and try out one of these five RTDs.
Plume & Petal
Vodka infused with fruit, botanical, and tea is the base of these light and refreshing cocktails. The 100-calorie cans come in three flavors: Cucumber, Lemon, and Peach Spritz. Each drink has a hint of honey and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. The white can is designed with three falling petals in the color that represents the flavor inside.
A fan favorite wrapped in a can, DELOCE recently launched their canned Espresso Martini that is perfect for any upcoming plans. As many RTDs contain unhealthy additives, DELOCE took this classic cocktail and gave it a healthy and approachable twist. The 11% ABV beverage has Arabica coffee beans and is free of dairy. The simple modern can is making drinking cocktails even more accessible.
A new buzz-worthy drink. The CanBee cocktails are created with small-batch gin and natural ingredients for a fresh taste. The Bee’s Knees has a citrus flavor that comes from real lemon and farm-fresh honey. To match its name, the black cans have a honeycomb shape in the center, with a mini beehive as the logo. Around each can, fly little honey bees reminding the consumer of summertime.
Coming in four flavors: Moscow Mule, Gin Highball, Greyhound, and the newest addition, Margarita, the Salt Point canned cocktails are one to keep an eye out for. Each can have a unique packaging with seaport characters and stories. The 10% ABV canned cocktail is the drink for indoor and outdoor activity with no mixing required. The bar quality drink is also female-founded by Heather Wyatt.
F!ve Drinks Co.
The simple but eye-catching packaging is exactly what F!ve Drinks Co. created. Their six flavors include Mojito, Moscow Mule, Margarita, Paloma, Watermelon Vodka Soda, and Gin & Tonic. These ready-to-drink cocktails make enjoying your favorite classic drinks easy. Just like their name, the drinks are made with five all-natural ingredients, displayed on the front of the cans for complete transparency.
