Canned Wine? Celebrate National Wine Day With These On-the-Go Drinks!

Soda isn’t the only beverage that comes in a can these days. Over the past several years, canned wine has evolved from a libation you’d hardly consider, to one that deserves a spot in your fridge, and rightfully so.

Not only does canned wine taste just as good as its bottled counterparts, but it’s much simpler to transport, making it easier to sip when you hit the beach, lounge by the pool or simply just don’t feel like reaching for a wine glass.

To celebrate National Wine Day, which falls on Saturday, May 25, Us Weekly has rounded up some of the tastiest canned wines on the market. Though Cupcake Vineyards has been popular with younger drinkers for years, the brand only just released a duo of canned wines in April 2019 – a New Zealand Sauvignon blanc and a rosé from California.

Another newbie in the canned wine game is Rosé All Day Bubbly from Biagio Cru Wines & Spirits. The effervescent drink is a refreshing take on the brand’s increasingly popular still rosé wine, which boasts notes of watermelon and strawberry.

Scroll down for more delicious canned wine recommendations and get ready to sip with ease in honor of National Wine Day!

The Weekend Reset – Spring eats, drinks, and chills.

Heads up: Buying via our links may result in us getting a commission. Here’s why.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.

 

WATCH: Grade A B-Movie fun.

You are either down for this or you aren’t. This is pure genre fun, with an excellent cast and production values that steer clear of anything wince-inducing. Maybe that’s not your thing. Totally get it. It shares a concept with last year’s “A Quiet Place” (although it is from a book published before that film’s release) so maybe you think you’ve been here and done that. You haven’t. This is a hoot. It doesn’t reinvent anything but it keeps you on the edge and you could consider it the mental version of a palette cleanser. Pop some corn and settle in!

 

READ: The Book that Saved the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Yes. I realize that the video above is an actual movie version of Victor Hugo’s classic. And that it is a silent movie. Also, black and white. It’s still sexier than an edited picture of a book cover. Besides, this whole story about how Hugo wrote this novel to save the famous cathedral was something I only learned about this week. This week’s fire was really difficult to watch, as someone who has been fortunate enough to have been there and stepped inside. And so, in Hugo’s book, the cathedral is every bit as important to the story as the famous protagonist of the title. A gothic story about gothic times? That was enough to get me to read this years back and it is enough to make me return to its pages.

 

LISTEN: LSD for your earholes.

I have included a song or two from LSD in past Dappered playlists. The band name comes from the three artists who joined forces for this project: SIA, Labrinth, and Diplo. I am a sucker for this upbeat, inventive and hook-filled sound. The production is so very, very impressive. It seems perfect for the season. Open the windows, turn up the volume and smile. (You might also find your body language alter accordingly.)

 

EAT: An Early Spring Mixed Grill.

Shrimp and Chorizo Mixed Grill from Epicurious

Shrimp and Chorizo Mixed Grill. As soon as I am able to move the majority of my cooking outdoors, I do. It’s not just about leaving the kitchen clean (although that is a really strong notch in the plus column), it’s also about keeping my kitchen as clean as possible. Plus, the clean kitchen. I kid. Mostly. What I appreciate about this menu is the combination of fresh-right-now ingredients like asparagus while including the chorizo, which hints at the more robust cuts of meat which will roll out over the summer. I suggest adding green onions and other spring greens available at area farmers markets.

 

DRINK: A Tasty Easter Mocktail. 

https://www.townandcountrymag.com/leisure/drinks/how-to/g785/best-mocktail-recipes/

Coconut, Cucumber, Lime, and Mint Cooler. There are only a handful of ingredients. From the link: “4 cups of coconut water 2 cucumbers sliced very thinly, half cup of lime juice, quarter cup of sugar (optional), and a quarter cup of chopped mint leaves.” You simply combine all of the ingredients and chill. If it’s me, I’m doubling ingredients. And then some. Shouldn’t be too hard to make this attractive to the 21+ adult beverage set either.

Amber Davies has urged her fans to keep an eye on their drinks after hers was spiked

OHMYGOSSIP — Amber Davies has urged her fans to keep an eye on their drinks after hers was spiked.
The former ‘Love Island’ star was hospitalised on Friday (16.11.18) after reportedly collapsing in a pub and she admitted having someone slip drugs into her beverage was something she “never thought” would happen to her.
Amber is now recovering and feels “grateful” to be back home.
She shared a statement on her social media accounts which read: “Thank you so much for all your kind words.
“Getting spiked is something I never thought would happen to me, but I’m so grateful to be home and safe.
“Thank you to my family and everyone who helped me, especially Glan Clwyd Hospital.
“Reminder to never leave your drink out of sight.”
Amber had been out with a friend at the Plough Inn at St Asaph, North Wales, when she collapsed in a car park outside the pub, prompting staff to call for an ambulance.
An onlooker said: “At about 11.20 she was walking up and down the car park with a guy.
“She suddenly hit the floor. She was completely unconscious.
“People came out of the pub to help her and put her in the recovery position.
“She was screaming like she was in agony.
“Paramedics were asking people if she’d taken anything. But no one saw her taking drugs.”
Amber was taken to the Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan and treated for around three hours before she was allowed home.
Despite Amber’s belief her drink was spiked, the bar manager previously insisted he had “no reason” to think there had been drugs on the premises.
The Plough manager Dafydd Jones said: “I have no reason to believe drugs were taken on the premises.
“I will be speaking to North Wales Police with regards to the incident.”
