File this one under: Huh.
You can get a pre-mixed drink, in a can, that doesn’t taste like malted metallic garbage. In fact, Cutwater Spirits has come out with a line of ready-to-drink cocktails that are quite delicious.
I’m not sure why no other company has really been able to do this with any amount of success (in the flavor department, in my humble opinion), but perhaps it’s because Cutwater is not only the maker of the base alcohol, but also the mixers. So when you’re drinking a Cutwater Rum and Ginger, you’re drinking Cutwater’s Three Sheets white rum, mixed with their made-in-house ginger beer. Since they craft the cocktail from start to finish, the quality is entirely on them.
My Favorite Cutwater Ready-to-Drink Cocktail
is definitely the Gin and Tonic. Which is funny, because I don’t like Gin. In general, I think gin tastes like Christmas in a bad way. Like a mouth full of pine needles. No thanks.
But Cutwater’s pre-mixed Gin and Tonic? DIFFERENT. As their website says, it’s a “modern spin on an old classic.” Cutwater’s Old Grove gin is blended with a made-in-house grapefruit and cucumber tonic water. It’s refreshing, tart, delicious.
