If you thought wine spritzers were a thing of the past, well, you're sort of right. BUT! Wine spritzers are having a comeback, and this new generation consists of seriously delicious, higher-quality spritzers packaged in super chic cans. By definition, a wine spritzer is a light, refreshing, low-alcohol cocktail that usually consists of a wine base diluted by soda, fruit juice, or carbonated water. Thanks to its lower alcohol content, a wine spritzer can be sipped at virtually any time of dayhello, boozy brunch. Here are our favorite wine spritzers for summer beach trips, brunches, and more.

Best Overall

What's cooler than a wine spritzer? A wine cooler, duh! Even though you can't judge a wine by its can, this vibrant retro-inspired canned wine spritzer from Momofuku's beverage-director-turned-entrepreneur Jordan Salcito is almost too pretty to drink. Lightly sparkling organic Sicilian wine mixed with natural grapefruit flavors equals a summer sunset in a can.
