Four Lokos aren’t the only aluminum-clad booze on the market, so we’ve put together a list of the craziest canned drinks that will f*** you up!
The drink for people who can’t actually drink. Maybe putting it in a can makes it look a little tougher? Or, you know, not. It’s a total chick-drink, but at 7% it’ll get ya wasted faster than beer!
French Red Wine
Carbonated Rice Wine
If canned French wine makes you feel too bourgeois, try some Korean carbonated rice wine. Forget Pabst Blue Ribbon, we predict this will be the next drink of choice at hipster parties. It’s obscure enough to be a major hit.
Infinit’ Ready to Drink Cocktails
Never again will you have to agonize over whether to order your margarita blended or on the rocks- now you can drink it in a can. These drinks from the Philippines come in 3 flavors, but at 2.5% alcohol, it’s going to take a lot of cans to mess you up.
Wild Turkey Cola
Wild Turkey Bourbon may be as American as alcohol can get, but outside of the good US of A, they drink their Bourbon and cola premixed in a can. You can’t add an extra shot, but bourbon out of a pop top will catch up with you pretty fast.
Gin Long Drink
Tired of the same old hard liquor in a can? If you’re feeling adventurous, you can get pulque in a can. Pulque is fermented agave- the same plant used to make tequila. The alcohol is completely different from Cuervo but still 100% guaranteed to make you hit the floor.
Olde English Cider
English accents are always a plus with the ladies, and Olde English Cider has the same charm. There’s nothing juvenile about this apple juice, it will have you seeing double in no time.
Stoli ain’t exactly top-shelf liquor, so stop kidding yourself and just get it in a can. One tall boy and you’ll be crying for your mama in the morning.
What kind of alcohol is in Four Loko? The manufacturers won’t say. But when it gets you plastered in no time at all, does it really matter? It’s Energy/Alcohol predecessor Sparks didn’t last long on the market. The easy-to-drink Four Loko flavors will have you asking “Red bull and vodka who?” … Right before you pass out, of course.
