The 6% ABV Smash offers a lower-calorie yet indulgent craft cocktail

Silver City, New Mexico, January 17, 2024 — Mixed-Up Cocktail Co (Mixed-Up), creator and processor of deliciously bold Ready-to-Drink (RTD) canned craft cocktails, ends the year with continued success in launching their new Smash lineup. These all-natural 6% ABV cocktails currently come in two flavors: Watermelon Hibiscus Smash and Tangerine Punch Smash, with plans to launch a Berry Citrus and Strawberry Mango in the upcoming months. Each flavor boasts a strong combination of natural juice and booze and can be found in their distinct white and silver cans. 


Mixed-Up’s variety of flavors proved popular in 2023 and meets the needs of modern consumers for an indulgent-but-healthy cocktail option that tastes like it’s fresh from the bar. Market demand for RTDs are expected to increase to $19 billion by 2024 and double in the next decade. 


“Canned cocktails are gaining popularity each year, and we offer one of the most premium craft options available,” says Teresa Dahl-Bredine, co-founder alongside husband David Crosley. “One of the biggest complaints we hear about RTDs is that they taste fake or medicinal, so we set out to make something with a fresh and real taste straight out of the can. Our ingredients are so natural and delicious that customers can’t tell between our product and a freshly-made bar cocktail. A chemical-free RTD is a challenge to make, but we’ve stubbornly stuck to a clean, simple ingredient list and find that consumers love the difference it makes. Getting a taste of it to consumers has been our top priority this year, and we are seeing that spur growth in both natural and conventional markets.”
