The Best Premixed Cocktails and Mocktails For the Ultimate Friday-Night Fun
Pub Fridays have been an office staple for the longest time, and there's no reason that we can't still recreate it in our own homes (or the park on those rare British summer days) just because the pubs are open again. To truly appreciate the power that comes with Friday night, opt for a symbolic drink after work — whether that's a cocktail or mocktail — to get you primed and ready for the weekend ahead. While we're all struggling to book our favourite after-work pubs or fancy bars getting the perfect cocktail mixed up for us, the temptation to slink off to our fridge and finish off last week's vinegary bottle of wine is much too strong.
But there is another way. The canned cocktail has long been reserved for summer evenings in parks or family barbecues, and at last, that time has finally come. Premixed cocktails (whether it be a can, a box, or even a DIY version) are best enjoyed whatever the weather, and whether it's vodka, CBD, or non-alcoholic gin that takes your fancy, there's something out there for everyone.
We've done the hard work of trying them all out and rounded up the best of the best for your drinking pleasure. Have a scroll through to find out what's on our list, and what soon could be on yours.
