Canned cocktails are the answer to “what are we drinking by the pool-lake-beach?”  This summer Kraken Rum, the world’s top-selling dark rum brand, introduced three new canned cocktails. Rum lovers can choose from Kraken & Cola, Kraken & Ginger Beer, or Kraken Rum Punch. Perfect for packing in the cooler or serving poolside without the need to have a bartender mixing drinks.

Kraken’s new ready-made cocktails are available in three popular rum taste profiles to deliver a refreshing mix of classic and contemporary flavors. The canned cocktails are available and on shelves in select states. Early next year Kraken has plans to introduce additional flavors with a nationwide launch.

“As one of the only dark rum-based RTD offerings on the shelves, our Kraken Rum cocktails offer an unexpected way to add a little extra fun to your summer plans whether you’re sipping at home or on an adventure at sea,”  said Lander Otegui, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Proximo Spirits.
