Holiday season is here, and though celebrations might be a bit different this year, one thing is certain - cocktails and wine will be imbibed. If you find yourself as host, consider making things easy for both yourself and your guests by providing ‘contactless,’ read-to-drink libations such as these:

Two Chicks Cocktails

Six different flavors help to ensure that everyone in your crew finds something to quaff: Sparkling Citrus Margarita (Tequila, lemon, and lime), Sparkling Vodka Fizz (Vodka, Elderflower, and pear), Sparkling Paloma (Tequila and grapefruit), Sparkling New Fashioned (Whiskey, spicy ginger and orange), Sparkling Vodka CuTea (Vodka with peach, cucumber tea, and Thyme), and Sparkling Apple Gimlet (Gin, apple, and cucumber.) Each is natural, gluten and sugar free, and made with real premium spirits and botanicals at 5% alcohol, and each can be consumed in-can or over ice.

Founded by Meghan Hanna and Linda Cash, the two endeavored to create deliciously designed canned cocktails as a means to a movement, one that encourages inclusivity, laughter, and conversation amongst women. Little did the duo know that their products would also meet a moment – the COVID moment – and that the cocktails’ delivery system would prove to be au courant. (No hassle, no mixing, no cooties.) About $18 per four-pack.
