Dogfish Head Scratch-Made Cocktails

You may know Dogfish Head for its craft beer, but the brewery is home to a distillery as well. The new scratch-made canned cocktails use Dogfish Head’s spirits to create a seriously good cocktail in a can! We’re partial to the Strawberry & Honeyberry Vodka Lemonade, but the Blueberry Shub Vodka Soda is pretty good, too.
