We are career bartenders and bar owners who have built careers out of crafting the perfect cocktail. We started Social Hour because we believe there is magic in an expertly-made cocktail, and we wanted to bring that out from behind the bar and into the world.
We also believe a canned cocktail shouldn’t mean a compromise in quality and we only wanted to put a cocktail in a can if it could be as good - or better - than ones we make from scratch behind our bars.
WE WANT TO MAKE CANNED COCKTAILS MORE INTERESTING
In the summer of 2020, after years of planning, tasting, and tweaking, we launched our first 3 cocktails: the Gin & Tonic, Whiskey Mule, and Pacific Spritz (pandemic launch!). We chose the simpler highball-style concept because we believed we could execute it to our high standards. Since then we’ve continued to experiment relentlessly (perhaps obsessively) with the goal of bringing more creativity to canned cocktails, just like you’d find on the menu in our bars. In the summer of 2021 we launched our next 3 cocktails: the Sunkissed Fizz, Strawberry Rhubarb Spritz, and Prizefighter. All of which took inspiration from some of our favorite drinks from previous menus.
We’re committed to continuing to push the envelope and elevate cocktail experiences beyond the bar whenever and wherever the mood strikes. Because the world needs more Social Hours!
Cocktail Notes: At once serious whiskey cocktail and a refreshing crusher, our Whiskey Mule is a blend of 3-6 year old Brooklyn-distilled rye whiskey and our very own citrus-forward ginger beer. It’s zesty, bracing, and packs just the right amount of heat.
Garnish Suggestions: Lime wedge or wheel, candied ginger, orange twist or slice, pineapple slice.
