13 Canned Drinks You Need To Try This Summer

[Updated 2020]

Canned cocktails are one of the hottest food and bev trends today and it’s one trend that doesn’t appear to be going anywhere – especially not this summer. The game keeps getting more competitive. Luckily for us, that means more options!  Everyone is always on the go, so convenience, efficiency, affordability and the ‘ready to drink’ factor are really important. Portable, individual packs that you can grab and go to the festival or beach without having to mix and prep is ideal.

13 Hey Y’all

Hey Y’all gets the recognition for being one of the first not-crazy-sweet hard iced teas to pave the way – and then creating all new flavours of iced tea. Inspired by the southern way, the creator wanted to share the gift with the northerners. Perfect in a park, on a boat, on a train, in a plane.

12 PYUR Vodka Soda

PYUR is the latest addition to the vodka soda battle of the cans. Made for the nature-loving, yoga posing, responsible alcoholics. Made with clean and simple, all-natural ingredients and the only coconut flavoured vodka soda and now gin soda. Sounds like a piña colada to me.

11 Queensborough Gin Fzzz + Twist

What started as a brewpub in Surrey, is now a brewery and distillery that makes gin cocktails in a can. With all the west coast flavours packed into a portable drink. The Fzzzs are Unsweetened Gin + Soda and the Twists are Lightly Carbonated with syrups.

10 Wize Vodka Soda

Another newbie to the BC healthy-as-it-gets vodka soda list, Wize is also made with natural, clean and simple ingredients, but the cans are very photogenic. They’re differentiating factor – unique flavours like  lavender elderflower, and the new root beer. Bring out your inner child.

9 Bitterhouse Spritz

This can is a take on the oh-so-popular Aperol Spritz. Made from soda, wine and orange bitters, the flavour isn’t exactly the same, but as close as you can get from a can.

8 Muddlers

Ginger cures all and Muddler’s Moscow Mule in a can is ½ parts boozy deliciousness and ½ parts medicinal. (We like to think it is, anyways.)  Made with real ginger and fresh lime, this drink packs a serious kick and is just as good as the classic cocktail! Good to drink any time, any place, we prefer to cozy up and sip ours by the campfire.

7 Bollicini Sparkling

Aside from being the prettiest cans, it’s so much more convenient than having to pop a whole bottle of bubbles. For when you just can’t get enough bubbles and rosé (which is always).

6 Nütrl Vodka Soda

A drink with ingredients you can actually pronounce, Nütrl’s vodka sodas in a can are made with craft vodka, sodium-free carbonated water, and natural flavours. The unique factor is their different levels of alcohol percentage from 3.3% – 7%. A great patio sipper, cool down and drink up sans guilt, and without the addition of sugar or sweeteners.

5 Nude Vodka Soda/Gin Soda/Tequila Soda

A local fav for its simple ingredients and ease of drinking (and the really yummy flavours) and created by a couple of local dudes.  Birthed by a need for drink that wouldn’t leave consumers with raging, sugar-induced hangover the next day, Nude is sugar-free, sweetener-free, gluten-free with only 100 calories per can. 

Having started with just Vodka Soda, then adding Gin Soda, they’ve now also added the first sugar-free tequila soda in a can. Now you can have a REAL good time and feel like you’re in Mexico, without the holiday weight gain.

A portion of the proceeds sold from every mixer pack go to support the BC SPCA!

2 Zen Kombucha

The most healthy option on the list is kombucha vodka cocktails. Started by a group of friends in 2017 who grew up in North Vancouver, who were looking to create a beverage that was organic, gluten-free, preservative free and sourced locally for the health conscious.
