What you get when you blend the convenience of a beer with the complex flavors of cocktails is a new product from Bud Light that goes by the name of Mixxtail. These flavored malt beverages come in Hurricane, Firewalker and Long Island, offering reinterpretations of classic mixes in a ready-to-drink format. In total, Bud Light's Mixxtail beverages contain about 8% alcohol by volume.
Although the drinks come in the familiar form of beer, the branding subtly hints at this line's ties to mixology. Packaged in aluminum, these alcoholic drinks are available in both single-serve cans and 8-pack bottles that can be capped and securely closed after opening. Whether you pick up a small or a large batch of mixxtail drinks, it's a great way to save yourself a trip to the bar.
