June 2021 – This summer will be full of new beginnings, including the way we enjoy cocktails. Ready-to-drink margaritas, canned Manhattans, fruity hard seltzers, and high-end craft mixes are filling the shelves. These single-serve cocktails come in eye catching cans and bottles, with varying potency (check the ABV%) and serving options (drink from the can or over ice?) When we get to that post-pandemic party of our dreams, hopefully sooner than later, here’s a selection of craft cocktails to serve.
These three choices are in glass, and lend sophistication to the ready-to-drink category. The twist on/off caps on these craft cocktails are particularly practical for outings, and they serve two per bottle. Consider pouring these over ice.

Potent cocktails from the Portland, OR distillery
This effortless Margarita is Adam’s pick!
We love the package art on these cans, and they will fill your cooler with style and color. Most of these are spirit-based cocktails, but we like to include a CBD option for non-drinkers. Pour over ice or enjoy from the can, that’s up to you!
