DIY Cocktails vs. Ready-to-Drink: Which is Right for You?

Ladies and gents,

are you ready to raise a glass and cheers to the weekend? I know I blooming am!

Let's be real.... who doesn't love a good cocktail? But when it comes to sipping on a fancy drink, you've got two options: you can either whip up a DIY cocktail or you can grab a ready-to-drink (RTD) option.

Now, I know some of you might be thinking, "Alan, why would I bother making my own cocktails when I can just grab a bottle off the shelf?" But hear me out, my lovely little mixologists, because there are pros and cons to both DIY cocktails and RTD options.

Let's start with DIY cocktails. Now, I know it might take a bit more time and effort, but trust me, it's worth it. When you make your own cocktails, you've got complete control over the ingredients and flavours. You can use the finest spirits, fresh fruits, and homemade syrups to create a truly unique and personalised experience. Plus, it's a great way to bond with friends and family. You can make it a fun and creative activity, and before you know it, you'll be impressing all your mates with your mad mixology skills.

But, I hear you asking, "Alan, what about the convenience factor?" And that's where RTD cocktails come in. These babies are pre-mixed and ready to drink straight out of the bottle or can, with no need for additional ingredients or equipment. This makes them perfect for on-the-go situations, like picnics, parties, or outdoor activities. Plus, with RTD options, you can try new and exciting flavors without having to invest in all the ingredients yourself.

Now, I know some of you might be thinking, "Alan, are you telling me that RTD cocktails are better than DIY cocktails?" And the answer is no, not at all. Both DIY cocktails and RTD options have their own unique benefits and drawbacks. It all depends on your personal preferences and lifestyle. If you enjoy the creativity and control that comes with making your own drinks, then DIY cocktails are likely the right choice for you. But, if you're looking for convenience and ease, then RTD options may be the way to go.

So, when you're looking for a drink, whether it's a weekend celebration, date night or just a casual evening with friends, consider whether you're in the mood for a DIY or RTD option and make your choice accordingly.

And remember, with ready-to-drink cocktails, you can always have a delicious and convenient cocktail at your fingertips.
