It seems that these days, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a canned cocktail concoction. This one comes to us from Oregon City, Oregon’s 503 Distillery and it has a rather amusing name. I’m Your Huckleberry Lemonade Cocktail is what they call it, and it clocks in at a mighty 11% ABV.
Here’s a bit more information about this canned cocktail taken directly from the press release that landed in our inbox not so long ago:
Artisanal craft distillery 503 Distilling has launched a brand new flavor in its portfolio of ready-to-drink canned craft cocktails. I’m Your Huckleberry Lemonade features 503 Vodka infused with handpicked Idaho wild huckleberries and then blended with fresh-squeezed lemonade. The cocktail is packaged in single 12-ounce cans and four-packs.
“I’m your huckleberry” is a phrase from the Old West, meaning that a person is essentially up for anything. 503 Distilling found wild huckleberries—small, tart berries that taste like a hybrid of a blueberry and raspberry—to be ideal for complementing the company’s handcrafted vodka along with fresh-squeezed lemonade for a thirst-quenching beverage.
“While huckleberry season in the Northwest is typically in late summer, our Huckleberry Lemonade is up for any season and can be enjoyed straight from the can all year-round,” said Rusty Caldwell, co-owner of 503 Distilling.
I’m Your Huckleberry Lemonade joins 503 Distilling’s award-winning lineup of canned craft cocktails, including The Wicked Mule, The Blood Orange Greyhound, La Vida Mocha, and Five-0-Tea. The newest product’s MSRP is $13.99 in Washington and Idaho, and $14.95 in Oregon.
Given the relatively high octane and tart-sounding description, this sounds like quite the sipper (as opposed to a chugger). To find out if it suits our palates, click the play button on the following video:
