We Love Our Mixed Drinks, But In A Can?
It's hard for me to describe, but I just can't seem to find the perfect beer. I don't know what it is, that while I can tolerate many types of beer, I've never been able to land on my go-to beer.
Maybe it's because when it comes to alcohol, I prefer a mixed drink rather than a beer. I am a fan of margaritas (frozen strawberry is my favorite), gin & tonic, vodka & grapefruit juice (Greyhound), and rum & coke.
Alcohol comes in so many ways now. Recently, I purchased a couple of frozen drinks in a bag. They were like a frozen margarita or a slushie with alcohol, 5 percent I believe. I was okay. Very cold and took a long time to drink. A friend at camp gave me a Bud Light Seltzer Frozen Icicle. I forget the flavor it was but tasted good, containing 8 percent alcohol, according to advertisements I found on the internet.
CNN Business reports that the next big alcohol item to make it to the market soon (soon to be tested in Mexico), is a Jack & Coke. The Coca-Cola Company has put together Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey with Coca-Cola, in a can. Your choice of regular or zero sugar.
According to CNN Business, the amount of alcohol will be five percent by volume, but it may vary by country. Apparently canned cocktails are becoming the next big thing in the world of alcoholic beverages. ABC 7 New York reports that several months ago, the Pepsi-Cola Company introduced Hard Mtn Dew. It's five percent alcohol by volume and is sugar-free as well. But it's currently only available in Florida, Tennessee, and Iowa.
