It wasn’t very long ago that the only way to get high-quality, creative cocktails was to visit cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Now, with the boom of cocktailing from coast to coast, no matter where you are there’s sure to be a cocktail bar nearby. But what if you want a delicious cocktail and you’re too lazy to get in your car, walk, or take the subway to your nearest watering hole?

Well, if you have the right ingredients you can whip up your favorite cocktails in the privacy of your own home. What if you simply can’t muster the energy to travel to a local bar and don’t feel like going through the process of mixing up a cocktail? Well, sir or madam, you are a new level of lazy and you really should get more sleep. But you can still imbibe delicious cocktails at home because the rise of cocktail culture has lead to myriad of different canned cocktails. You can check out some of our favorites below.

Before there was a canned cocktail craze, there was Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Rock & Rye. No canned cocktail list is complete without this 100 milliliter can. Many canned cocktails are well-known cocktails, but this throwback drink is made with rye whiskey, raw honey, dried oranges, Angostura bitters, and, for a little whimsy, rock candy.

The Caipirinha is more or less the national drink of Brazil and cachaça (a spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice) is its base. Think of it as the South American cousin to the margarita, but instead of rum, the base is cachaça as well as natural lime and sugar. This drink is carbonated as well, so that’s a bonus.
