5 Pre-Batched Bottle Cocktails Perfect for Pregaming




We all know what pregaming is and have all done it even before it had an official name to go by. When pregaming we often grab a base liquor and our favorite soda or juice, but thanks to the pre-batched bottle trend we can now pick up a bottle of our favorite cocktail and just chug before the real party begins.

We have seen these pre-batched bottles all over the store, but which ones actually have a quality taste while giving us that tipsy feeling to aid that turn-up moment we are seeking.

Here are five you should give a try.


1. Om's Cranberry Blood Orange - $30
Made with organic ingredients, hence OM standing for Organic Mixology, this vodka based spirit is pointed out as a not too sweet cranberry vodka mix.


2. Austin Cocktails' Tea Twister - $18
This vodka based pre-batched bottle taste like Arnold Palmer with a punch all while coming in at 100 calories per six once.


3. Mr. Lyan's Candlelit Manhattan - $74
Although a bit pricey the UK's Mr. Lyan's Candlelit Manhattan has been described as a well mixed Manhattan in a bottle. However this is probably not in you local store, but you can order one here.


4. Slow & Low's Rock and Rye - $18
A take on the Old Fashioned this pre-batched bottle is fruity and strong.



5. Fluid Dynamics' The St. Nick - $18
This mix of whiskey and brandy is aged for six months before its put in its bottle. Described as a fruity taste that's reminiscent of wine. Try here.
