It’s getting hot in here but luckily lockdown has eased, which means you’re allowed to hit the park for picnics – although social distancing rules still apply! There’s really no reason not to head out, soak up some rays and take a tinnie or two. Gotta keep hydrated. Here are the cans we’re caning. ????????????????

East London Liquor Co.

This Bethnal Green distillery is keeping it simple with their new range of pre-mixed cans. The cans come in four flavours, all of which feature one of the ELLC spirits. Vodka & Rhubarb is a winner.

£24 for a case of 12


These new canned cocktails are made from 100% natural ingredients – which surely means they are good for you right!? Our fave is the Gin Paloma and it’s not too sweet either.

From £15 for a box of 5

Empirical Spirits

One up your local park hipster with these cans from Copenhagen distiller Empirical Spirits. Not only will you be cooler, you’ll also be drunker at 8% ABV. This Sour Cherry is our favourite but they are constantly launching new flavours.

From €30 for 4

Hippy Fizz

This new canned cocktail from Porter’s Gin is super refreshing – we definitely detected notes of Lilt in there. You know, the totally tropical taste. Packed with pineapple & passion fruit but tart rather than sweet.

£34 for 12

D&D Cocktails

A new brand which features four cocktails named after songs. We’re fans of the ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ which is a summery take on a negroni. They all come with a garnish too so just add ice.

£12 per bottle

Bodega Bay Hard Seltzer

Causing a stir across the pond, these alcoholic sparkling waters are a refreshing alternative to your usual tinned goodies. They come in Apple, Ginger & Açai, and   Elderflower, Lemon & Mint.

£20 for a mixed case

Thomas Tipple

Thomas Tipple mixes sparkling wine with natural juices and flavourings to create its canned cocktails. There are currently two to choose from – Raspberry Bellini and Passionfruit Mimosa – and they’re light and sweet without being sickly.

£10 for two
