With Summer literally around the corner, the heat is definitely hitting hard, calling the need to quench your thirst with some refreshing beverages.
Here are our top five tinnies you simply must try this Summer for a refreshing drink to cool you down.
1. Actual Vodka Seltzers
As much as drinking straight or bar-mixed Australian Vodka is an amazing experience that is shared with friends on an epic night out, sipping a tinnie of a vodka seltzer mix is extremely refreshing on a hot day.
With so many different vodka premixes available, the Actual Vodka Seltzer, launched by Carlton & United Breweries, stands out by being one of the lowest calorie ready to drink vodkas in the Aussie market, making it a great option for those who love their alcohol but want to stay on top of their caloric intake.
Drinking an Actual Vodka Seltzer will entice your taste buds with the perfect blend of light sparkling water and smooth vodka. With 100% natural ingredients, you can drink a tinnie, two or more without feeling guilty. It's also vegan with no sugar content for the pure variety and very low sugar content at 0.3 grams a can for the lime variety.
Actual Vodka Seltzer was only recently launched in May of this year, turning the tides of the alcoholic cans scene in Australia.
2. Biggie Juice
An IPA that gives the ultimate tropical punch of apricot, peaches and passionfruit, the Feral Brewing Company's Biggie Juice is bold and unique, with the vision of daydreams and cloud hazes.
The taste of Biggie Juice in your mouth is creamy and rich with a notoriously juicy rush that will have you feeling exceptionally refreshed. It's smooth, has a great flavour, and looks so appetising you could drink it all year round.
3. Bearded Lady Bourbon Whiskey & Cola
A fair contender to a classic Australian whisky and cola mix, the Bearded Lady Bourbon is an American favourite made only from premium grain, ensuring a smooth and rich flavour.
The creative process closely follows the true methods of making a classic bourbon and cola, which means you benefit from the taste of the smoothness in flavour of unique bourbon.
4. Brookvale Union Ginger Beer
When you make a list of the best tinnies to drink on a hot summer day, a definite must-have on the list is a quality ginger beer that brings us to our next favourite drink this summer - the Brookvale Union Ginger Beer.
With an alcohol content of 4%, it's mouthwatering enough to knock back a few without feeling overwhelmed. The Brookvale Union Ginger Beer promises an amazing, gratifying sensation that is both satisfactory and liberating, with many loyal followers saying that it's the best ginger beer in the market.
5. Stone & Wood's Jasper Ale
Locally brewed in Northern Rivers, New South Wales, the Stone & Wood's Jasper Ale is a hoppy red ale with characteristics of spicy hops, rich malts and a firm bitter finish.
The beauty behind this tinnie is in its history, with the drink acting as a homage to Federal, a hinterland village in New South Wales which was once known as Jasper.
Under notes of tropical fruit aroma result from enigma, galaxy and mosaic hops, which are balanced with roasted malts leaving hints of toffee, caramel and hazelnut. The finish is a firm bitterness that you would desire from a quality ale.
A ruby hue that entices especially when icy cold, a tinnie of Jasper Ale on a hot sunny day is all you need to unwind.
