8 Canned Vegan Cocktails, Wines, and Hard Kombuchas to Try

There are situations in life when a La Croix just won’t do—summer celebrations, Tuesday night online trivia, and really stressful work afternoons when it’s close enough to five o’clock, just to name a few. These occasions call for something stronger. Thank goodness for canned alcohol. What sounds like a frat party beverage has evolved into a spa day splurge. We’re raising a can to salute these eight vegan-friendly cocktails, wines, and hard kombuchas that have raised our spirits during times of stress and celebration.

Loverboy

What’s better than a refreshing iced tea on a sweltering summer day? Hard iced tea—that sparkles. Loverboy’s canned sparkling teas contain 4.2% alcohol, giving a new meaning to “afternoon delight.” Each 90-calorie, no-added-sugar flavor is lightly sweetened with monk fruit which makes this portable beverage go down easy. Varieties include Lemon Iced Tea, White Peach Tea, and Hibiscus Pom. Pack those cans in a cooler along with a vegan charcuterie board, and you’re ready for the poshest picnic ever.

Besa

One sip of this organic vegan beverage, and you’ll understand why people are suddenly into canned wine. Both the All Day Rosé and Just Right White are perfect for picnics or popped open poolside. Translation: This is day-drinking wine.

Greenbar Distillery

This Los Angeles-based company offers a slew of options for both the cocktail and mocktail crowd. The canned Bitters+Soda line boasts a complex taste without the alcohol in flavors such as lavender and orange. For a bit of buzz, the distillery offers three canned cocktail varieties as well as spiked spritzers. Favorites include Rum + Cola, Whiskey + Soda, and Ginger Spritz.

Spa Girl

Spas may be closed, but recreating the experience at home is much more enjoyable with a Spa Girl cocktail in hand. These vodka-based sodas are divinely light and refreshing. Flavors come in Peach, Pear, and Cucumber. Each flavor is also available in a full-sized bottle, which makes an excellent gift for drive-by birthdays.

Sans Wine

For those who crave a different variety of wine every night, the Sans Wine variety pack is here for you. The expansive collection of canned vegan wine includes rosé, riesling, sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, carbonic carignan, and sparkling rosé. Just note: One can is equivalent to half a bottle, so enjoy responsibly.

Sans Wine

Boochcraft

Not all kombucha comes in a bottle. Boochcraft’s hard kombucha tastes just as crisp and bubbly from a can as it does in a bottle, and with 7% ABV, it’ll give you the same amount of buzz as a beer. The Ginger Lime and Orange Pomegranate are particularly refreshing, while the Lemon Maple is a bit more polarizing.

Flying Embers

If you’re in the mood for something bubbly, check out Flying Embers. This Los Angeles Arts District taproom ships its hard kombuchas and spiked seltzers across ten states in addition to supplying local stockists with its buzzed beverages. The hard seltzer flavors range from sweet-meets-spicy such as Pineapple Cayenne and Guava Jalapeño to floral and fruity like Passion Fruit Elderflower and Black Cherry Rose. The kombucha line includes Grapefruit Thyme, Lemon, and Berry.

Two Chicks

You don’t need to invest in a bar cart if you have a pack of Two Chicks canned cocktails. The gluten-free and vegan-friendly company offers a full menu of classic cocktail options featuring tequila, vodka, gin, and whiskey. If you’re at home, take the extra step to pour the beverage into a proper glass and enjoy a bartender-worthy cocktail without any prep work. The company launched two new mixes for summer 2021—Sparkling Cranberry Tartini and Sparkling Lemon Strawberry Kiss. The vodka-based beverages join other favorites including the Whiskey Spicy Ginger & Orange, Gin Apple & Cucumber, and Tequila Lemon & Lime.
