Calling It Now: These 120-Calorie Canned Sparkling Cocktails Will Be the Drink of Summer
Do you hear that noise, dear reader? It's the distant sound of fancy cocktail shakers everywhere crying from FOMO overload because they won't be getting any action this Summer. Why, you ask? Because there's a new canned cocktail brand in town, and it totally nixes the need for combining different ingredients in a mixing vessel. Dubbed Cape Line, the canned alcohol brand hails from MillerCoors, aka the parent company responsible for popular beers like Miller Lite, Foster's, and Blue Moon, so you know it's going to be good.
Cape Line's sparkling cocktails come in three refreshing flavors — Margarita, Blackberry Mojito, and Hard Strawberry Lemonade — all of which contain just 120 calories per 12-ounce can. As for the ingredients, there are six of 'em in each flavor: carbonated water, alcohol from cane sugar, actual cane sugar, lemon and/or lime juice concentrate, natural flavors, and fruit juice for added color. The fizzy canned cocktails are now rolling out in six- and 12-packs at major retailers, including Walmart, Kroger, Publix, Hy-Vee, and Meijer, to name a few. You can use Cape Line's online store locator to see if your go-to grocery spot is one of the lucky sellers.
If Parks and Recreation's Donna Meagle were to host a 2019 version of Treat Yo'Self Day, we're pretty sure she'd spend it sipping on one of these poolside while online shopping for fine leather goods and fragrances. Sounds like a pretty ideal Summer day, am I right?
