Summer is coming to a close, taking those warm nights, long days, and frequent beach trips with it. Still, there’s plenty to look forward to even after summer’s said goodbye. Fall is right around the corner, bringing along a unique and exciting new chapter.
There’s a drink for every occasion and season, and that’s especially true for the fall. From citrusy flavors to rich spices, here's what to expect from this autumn’s flavor profile.
What Are Some Must-Try Canned Cocktails This Autumn?
Below are a few of our favorite canned cocktails to bring summer into fall – and enjoy throughout the rest of the year.
Mojito Variety Pack
The mojito is a cocktail that’s traditionally made with rum, mint leaves, simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and club soda. It’s the national drink of Cuba, but the mojito is a beloved cocktail worldwide.
While it’s a classic in its original form, the standard mojito is a bit of a sugar bomb. That’s why we craft our ready-to-drink mojitos naturally free of sugar. They’re keto-friendly, vegan, and ready to enjoy throughout the fall without any prep time necessary.
The Mojito Variety Pack includes the following flavors:
Lime: The timeless classic offers a kick of citrus. It’s a fresh take on a familiar cocktail.
- Watermelon: Melon is one of our favorite fall ingredients. It’s often associated with the summer, but the natural sweetness of watermelon pairs exceptionally well with cooler weather.
- Mango: Sweet mango, mint, and lime come together here in a mango daydream.
We recommend enjoying a mojito with some grilled vegetable and black bean tacos, roasted corn, or homemade chips and guacamole. Savory, starchy veggies offset the natural sweetness of this cocktail, giving a balanced flavor profile you’ll love.
Margarita Variety Pack
The margarita is another classic cocktail that needs no introduction. Typically made with tequila, fresh-squeezed lemon and lime juice, and simple syrup, this is another cocktail that can pack in the sugar. Plus, it’s not always easy to make a margarita on the go.
We skipped the added sugar and added organic, real ingredients to create ready-to-drink margaritas that you won’t want to miss this fall.
Our Margarita Variety Pack includes:
- Classic Lime: This is the ultimate pairing of agave nectar and fresh lime, complete with a salty finish.
Strawberry Guava: Guava and bright bursts of strawberries are balanced with agave nectar and fresh lime juice in this vacation classic.
- Blood Orange Pomegranate: Pomegranates and juicy sweet blood orange are paired with fresh lime juice and agave nectar for an exotic escape.
Other Delicious Fall Cocktails You Need To Try
Our hard kombuchas are delicious on their own, but they can also be a valuable addition to any bar cart setup. Next time you host a dinner party, try wowing your guests with these recipes for cocktails that feature our bright and refreshing kombuchas.
The Guava Mojito
If a mojito is your favorite long drink, then you’ll love this tropical twist on the crowd favorite. This recipe introduces our Guava Citra Hard Kombucha to help provide tropical notes. To make this decadent drink, all you need to do is combine:
- Muddled mint to taste
- Ice made to your preference
- One ounce of rum, preferably of the white or silver variety
- One ounce of fresh lime juice to taste
- Our Guava Citra Hard Kombucha
Homemade cocktails are delicious, but to save yourself a trip to the distillery or liquor store, we recommend trying one of our mojito canned cocktails. Featuring unique flavors like lime, strawberry guava, and watermelon, these bold mojitos will soon become a staple at every fall get-together. Plus, no cocktail shaker needed.
The Spicy Pineapple
This cocktail with a kick is perfect for bonfires, pumpkin patches, and Halloween parties. Made with one of our high ABV kombuchas, this drink is for the bold and adventurous among us:
- One ounce chile-infused mezcal
- One half ounce lime juice
- One half-ounce agave
- Two and a half ounces of Pineapple Chili Kombucha
Once you’ve mixed everything together, pour over ice. Every drink needs a garnish, and we recommend using a pineapple frond and chili rim to bring out the tropical heat in this fan favorite.
The Kombucha Mimosa
We mentioned earlier that no brunch is complete without a mimosa, but sometimes it’s fun to be creative. Mimosas are one of the easiest drinks to twist into something unique and delicious.
For instance, this kombucha mimosa features passion fruit nectar and hard kombucha to add exotic flavors and subtle tart notes.
- Two ounces of orange juice
- One ounce of passion fruit nectar
- Two and a half ounces of Orange Passion Mimosa Hard Kombucha
Mix it all up and pour it into your favorite Champagne glasses.
Our Favorite Easy Autumn Refreshers
There’s nothing better than a cocktail in a can. After all, why enjoy your favorite vodka soda or tequila margarita in a stuffy bar when you could enjoy a drink while you’re enjoying all of the foliage fall has to offer?
That’s why we love canned RTD (ready-to-drink) hard beverages — they can go wherever you go. Whether you prefer Moscow mules, hard seltzers, gin and tonics, or even just a classic cocktail like an old-fashioned, here is a list of the best refreshing drinks to help you make memories this fall.

Ginger Hard Kombucha: A Fresh Blend of Zingy Ginger Layered With Aromatic Turmeric and Oak
We’re heading into fall full speed ahead, so it’s only natural that our flavor preferences will shift from vibrant tropical flavors to steady fall spices. One of those classic spices is ginger, the central ingredient in fan favorites like gingerbread, ginger beer, pumpkin spice, and our Ginger Hard Kombucha.
This hard kombucha features subtle threads of citrus and oak botanicals that create the perfect backdrop for any memory. Toast to autumn with our Ginger 'Bucha Mule. Mix one ounce of vodka, a half ounce of ginger liquor, and a half ounce of lime juice. Garnish this booch-filled twist on a classic cocktail with a lime wheel for a finishing touch.
Black Cherry Hard Kombucha: A Sweet Tang of Black Cherry Finished With a Squeeze of Fresh Lime
There’s nothing like a blend of dark fruit flavors to celebrate the end of a long day filled with fall activities. Whether you’ve gone to the pumpkin patch or enjoyed a scenic hike through the changing foliage, our Black Cherry Hard Kombucha makes the perfect addition.
With a rich cherry profile and hints of fresh lime, this hard kombucha is perfect for those of us who like to drink cocktails to top off a day well-spent. Combine this burst of fruitiness with 1 ounce of gin, a half ounce of cherry syrup, a half ounce of lime juice, and muddled mint to make a delicious Black Cherry Gin Fizz.
Garnish with a lime wheel and a cherry for a fall cocktail you’ll want to make every weekend.
Orange Passion Mimosa Hard Kombucha: A Refreshing Spin on a Timeless Cocktail
When throwing a brunch party, some classics are always on the table: avocado toast, omelets, bloody marys, and of course, mimosas. A classic mimosa is as timeless as a piña colada or rye whiskey.
Level up your autumn mornings with our Orange Passion Mimosa Hard Kombucha. This is a subtle and sweet mixture of naturally tangy kombucha and citrus, tied together with hints of guava and tropical passionfruit.
Your camping mornings on the trail are about to get a lot more exciting with this canned mimosa, so you can ditch that bottle of sparkling water you’ve been saving. Consider adding a splash or two of orange juice and passion fruit nectar to make a Kombucha Mimosa fit for the great outdoors.
