On The Rocks Knob Creek Old Fashioned
This year we’ll start with a classic: the Bourbon Old Fashioned. On The Rocks makes a delicious Old Fashioned that’s ready to drink and affordable. At 35% ABV (70 Proof), this the On The Rocks Old Fashioned is made with real Knob Creek whiskey, so you can trust the spirit in the bottle. Ingredients are true to the cocktail, with house-made bitters, real cane sugar, orange and lemon zest, and a cherry finish.
The On The Rocks Knob Creek Old Fashioned ships in a pack of four bottles… that each contain about 4 drinks worth, ringing in at less than $4 per cocktail. These Ready To Drink Old Fashioneds are perfect for entertaining.
Cutwater Canned Cocktail
In the canned cocktail category, our top recommendation is Cutwater. If you’re into the “Hard Seltzer” trend but desire a hard liquor option, cutwater offers a great selection of flavored Vodka Sodas for that carbonated feel. They also have non-carbonated options. With mix packs and cases, there’s a flavor for everyone.
Cutwater canned cocktails are available for delivery in most states with an order from online retailers like ReserveBar.
