The world of sparkling cocktails and seltzers is a screaming hot one. These drinks have been around for a few years now, and there’s zero turning back, it would seem. People everywhere have absolutely fallen in love with a canned adult beverage that doesn’t have to be beer, tastes incredible, comes in a variety of flavors, and — more often than not — has fewer calories than other boozy options. Yes, canned cocktails and hard fizzy seltzers are here to stay, like it or not. The problem now, though, is that with nearly every single alcohol brand jumping on the bandwagon, the market is more than saturated with choices. And while it’s good to have options, the sheer amount of hard seltzers and sparking cocktails in the liquor aisle can make your head spin well before you’ve even cracked a can. So we’re here to help spotlight one of the best ones on the market.

Spritz Society is a canned cocktail brand that uses natural ingredients to create delicious adult beverages that are both pure in taste and in integrity. Spritz Society boasts on its website, “We make our cocktails as delicious as possible. Because taste matters. Our ingredients naturally work together to create flavors we’re proud of.”

And those ingredients are simple. Their (exquisite) Grapefruit flavor, for example, contains only sparkling water, white wine, natural flavors, cane sugar, and citric acid. In addition to that goodness, each sparkling cocktail has a 100 percent white wine base, unlike so many other Seltzer brands that use malt liquor, a fermented malt alcohol base.

This simplicity of flavor and purity of ingredients comes across beautifully in each of the brand’s fruity flavors, including Blood Orange, Peach, Grapefruit, Pineapple, and Lemon. Of these flavors, every single one is true to itself without a hint of artificial flavor.

Reminiscent of a real white wine spritzer one might be served at a garden party, there isn’t a trace of the chemical harshness found in other brands. Easily (dangerously) drinkable, these cocktails are smooth and have just the perfect amount of fizz that won’t fall flat. Refreshingly blending the perfect mixture of sweetness and tart, each flavor tastes exactly as its name suggests, with effervescent bubbles releasing hints of fruit and wine with each burst.

And while the price point might be slightly higher than its more chemical-filled, stale-tasting competitors, the extra few dollars will be well spent for a flavor and experience that is truly beyond comparison to other drinks in the same lane. Conveniently, Spritz Society’s subscription service does offer a considerable discount with exclusive subscriber perks, so you will never have to be more than an arm’s reach away from one of these delicious drinks.

George Dickel Whiskey Sour

What is a whisky sour? The whiskey sour cocktail officially dates back to the 1860s, but sailors in the British Navy had been drinking something very similar long before that. On long sea journeys, water was not always dependable, so to combat that, spirits were often used. Scurvy, too, was another danger on these journeys, so lemons and limes were consumed to help prevent the disease (incidentally, this is also one of the reasons why British folk are called ‘Limeys’).

Finally, sugar and water were added for taste. At this point, the drink is probably starting to sound familiar. (Grog, the rum-based favorite of pirates across the seven seas, is made from the same components, substituting whiskey for the sugarcane-based spirit.)

Sazerac (with the red feather boa) is the official cocktail of New Orleans for summer drinks

One of America’s oldest known cocktails, the Sazerac cocktail is a New Orleans classic. One sip and you’ll quickly realize why this reddish-orange elixir has been going strong in the Big Easy and beyond since the 1800s. The Sazerac has a big, bold flavor that’s remarkably balanced, with a blend of sweetness, spice, and herbal notes, all wrapped up in one potent, whiskey-loving libation. Though difficult to master, it’s a fairly easy drink to make. It’s also a great cocktail to showcase your mixology skills, particularly while playing some fiery jazz in the background  (you can’t go wrong with Rebirth Brass Band.)

When you envision an IPA, you’re probably thinking of a West Coast IPA. While there are milkshake IPAs, New England-style (hazy IPAs), and others, the West Coast IPA is the king of the American hop-fueled beer landscape.

For those unaware, the West Coast IPA started on the (you guessed it) West Coast. Its heart is in San Diego (and the surrounding area) where countless breweries like Alesmith, Green Flash, Ballast Point, and Societe are cranking out this timeless style.
