You love your whiskey. And whether you’re currently sipping your way through the best whiskey releases of 2022 or have been opting for the same bottle of High West Campfire Whiskey more times than you can count this summer, it’s never a bad time to befriend whiskey canned cocktails. Of late, a new crop of ready-to-sip boozy beverages have arrived—and they impress with standout ingredients, top-shelf whiskey, and a lack of gross additives. Refreshing, flavor-packed, and affordable, here are our 10 favorites.
1. Cutwater Spirits Whiskey Mule
This ready-to-drink whiskey mule is 7% ABV and packs a zing, thanks to ginger beer, a touch of lime, and aromatic bitters. Cutwater‘s award-winning bourbon whiskey is also well worth sipping on by itself.

2. Spiritless Whiskey Cocktails
Spiritless churns out non-alcoholic whiskey beverages that replicate the real deal quite impressively. Currently, they have the Whiskey Sour (the lemon and cane sugar flavors stand out) and Old Fashioned (with notes of chai, clove, and cinnamon) ready-to-drink canned cocktails on offer. Savor them sans alcohol or put a splash of your favorite whiskey in a glass for a low-ABV beverage. Whether you’re taking a break from booze or doing the designated driving for the evening, these nuanced classic cocktails stand up deliciously on their own.
