Just in time for my beach trip next week, some canned beach beverages! Rocker Sammy has a new line of canned cocktails. The line is from Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. and they look really good!

If you’re familiar with the “Red Rocker” then you know he’s had his own mezcal and tequila brands on the market for quite a while. Now he’s bringing us some sparkling rum canned cocktails. The four flavors are:

  • Tangerine Dream – with hints of dreamsicle
  • Pineapple Splash – features a slow burn spice from jalapeno
  • Island Pop Chill – a Hawaiian fruity flavor
  • Cherry Cola Chill – also with a bit of spice and the sweetness of cherry cola

Usually I find canned cocktails way too sweet for my liking but these have little sugar, about 5 grams per 12 oz can. All of the drinks are made with Hagar’s Puerto Rico made Beach Bar Rum. According to Foodsided, Hagar says, “You’ll want to throw these cocktails in a cooler and bring them to the beach, your pool party, out tailgating, and your backyard barbecue”. I’m ready to try em!

As of right now, I can’t find a local store that carries the cocktails yet, but you can purchase them on Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. website. If you wanna be one of the first to try these, snag some quick! Some of the flavors have already sold out!

I’m a big Sammy Hagar fan (although I prefer DLR Van Halen) and he’s one of the rock stars I’ve never met, but wanted to meet. He just seems like he’d be a fun guy to have a few drinks with. He’s great in concert by the way! If you ever get a chance to see him, definitely do it!
