You may recall the episode of Weekly Whiskey where Jay and I taste tested a number of RTD offerings and while some stood a bit above the others, none were really quite my jam. That changed when I tore into the Ginger Lime Piggyback RTD. The fresh fruit and good dash of ginger really work well with the Piggyback Rye, and at 8% ABV these sip far more like a cocktail than, say, a hard seltzer kind of product (which I enjoy).
The other flavors are rock solid as well–the Session Citrus Mint has a great pop of fresh mint, and the Berry Lemon Fizz has a quintessential summertime vibe as well. I doubt anyone would know I didn’t actually make the cocktail if I served this on the rocks with a garnish. All in all I’m pretty impressed, and I think these will do quite well for the person who wants a convenient way to enjoy cocktails as part of their adventures.
