If you're less about the pink and more about the Pinot, try Barefoot Refresh Spritzers instead. The easy-travel cans come in Crisp White and Summer Red and have six and half percent ABV—making them great to sip solo, poured over ice, or as a mixer for a sparkling cocktail. P.S. If you dont need the convenience of a can (or just want a whole bunch of spritzer to yourself), they're also available in full-size bottles. (Or go the DIY route and make your own summer spritzer.)

Looking for a beverage with more punch than malt liquor or wine? Why not go for whiskey—Slow & Low 84-proof whiskey cocktail, to be exact. These mini 100ml cans are the perfect size to make sure you aren't over-served, and pack all the flavor of the signature Slow & Low spirit, including raw local honey from Pennsylvania, air-dried navel oranges, angostura-style cocktail bitters, and a pinch of rock candy. (Yeah, dark liquor might give you a worse hangover, but with a spirit this strong, you'll only need one.)
