Ready to drink cocktails are growing in popularity now more than ever. With a lot of people staying home instead of going into large crowds, and prices going up on everything, it just makes more sense to get some easy drinks to enjoy at home after work or on the weekend.
What are those ready to drink cocktails, though? Why are they such a great choice?
Well, let’s go over that.
They’re Made Consistently
Usually, when you start saying that a product is made by a machine instead of by hand, that means there’s a lack of quality. Not with cocktails, though. As you’re probably aware, cocktails are highly inconsistent in bars. Even if you get the same bartender every time, the drink will probably taste slightly different. They can change up a brand they use for ingredients, pour a little more or a little less, or even just add one extra ice cube and throw off the balance of the drink.
Since canned cocktails are made in a factory by machines, none of those problems exist. You can trust that your cocktail will taste the exact same every time you get it. You can’t underestimate how great of a trait that is.
Designed for Affordable Variety
Getting complicated mixed drinks at home or in a bar is expensive. All the ingredient costs are passed onto you.
However, the companies that manufacture ready to drink cocktails are able to purchase their ingredients in massive quantities since they’re a full production system. That allows them to get the ingredients at a lower cost per unit, and they don’t even have to sacrifice quality to do so.
Those savings get past to you. You can spend $20 on canned mixed drinks and have more than enough alcohol to have fun with a couple of friends. Whereas doing the same at a bar can easily blow the bulk of your paycheck for that week.
Not only that but ready to drink cocktail companies offer variety packs that allow you to try different things or satisfy the tastes of multiple people without having to buy multiple packages. That gives you variety and helps you save a few bucks at the same time, too.
They’re a Safer Option
In the United States alone, almost 12,000 people die from drunk driving every year. That is a lot of preventable death and suffering.
You can safely go to a bar by bringing a friend who stays sober and handles the driving, but that can be a chore. If you go alone, you can easily end up feeling pressured to drive yourself home and add to that morbid statistic we shared.
Ready to drink cocktails don’t require you to leave the house. You can bundle up with your significant other, put on a new movie you’ve been waiting to see, and crack open a few cold ones for a more comfortable and far safer experience for both of you.
