With bars and restaurants closed for much of the past year, demand for RTD cocktails has never been higher. Last year, UK drinkers spent £412 million (US$580.8m) on RTDs, a 29% increase from 2020.

Of course, spirit-and-mixer cans are popular choices, with tinned G&Ts leading the way and hard seltzers lending fizz to the category. But as the thirst for on-the-go serves rises, more complex canned cocktails have emerged. 

Both spirits giants and independent producers have developed canned versions of classic drinks – think Margaritas, Espresso Martinis and more. Bars, too, have gotten in on the trend, canning their own unique house favourites for consumers to enjoy at home and on the go. 

The market is now awash with RTD cocktails, but quality varies massively. So which ones are worth cracking open?
