Hot on the heels of White Claw’s success, ready-to-drink cocktails are having a moment in the spotlight. It’s not just Jack Daniel’s that’s getting into the game with its Black Jack Cola. Now, Absolut is spiking your summer with all of the best warm weather flavors, including the all-new Berry Vodkarita!
A Closer Look at the New Absolut Cocktails
This lineup of sparkling cocktails is made with Absolut vodka and real fruit juice. The 12-ounce drinks are sold in tall, chic-looking cans in irresistible pastel shades that exude subtle sophistication. In other words, there’s no mistaking them for Mike’s Hard Lemonade. (No offense to Mike’s lovers, though. We hear you on the new Pineapple Mandarin flavor!)
The Berry Vodkarita (10% ABV) combines juicy berry flavors with bitter citrus notes for a drink that’s both sweet and refreshing. There’s also a Grapefruit Paloma (7% ABV) that mixes astringent citrus with tropical flavors and a Mango Mule (7% ABV) that’s the perfect blend of warm ginger spices and luscious fruit.
You could drink these cocktails straight out of chilled cans, or over ice and garnished with fruit like ripe raspberries, grapefruit slices or a spear of mango.
If you’re calorie-conscious, Absolut also has a collection of canned vodka soda drinks that come in elegant flavors like Lime & Cucumber, Grapefruit & Rosemary and Raspberry & Lemongrass. Each can has only 97 calories, which is pretty impressive.
Where Can I Find Them?
Drizly has 4-packs of the 12-ounce cans for around $11, so you can snag ’em without having to leave the house. The Absolut cocktails havealso been spotted on Target.com, so keep your eye out at national retailers, too!
