A pre-mixed canned cocktail range is making its way to the UK. Sun Beach Cocktails, distributed by EW Retail Packers, consists of six flavours: Strawberry Daiquiri, Mojito, Pina Colada, Cosmopolitan, Caipirinha and Love on the Beach (rsp: £1.99 for 250ml).

The range would plug a gap in the UK market for a ready-to-drink cocktail in a can, said MD David Griffin. "The range is produced in Spain where it has proven a huge success," he added.

Global Brands claimed a UK first in 2008 when it launched a pre-mixed Mojito in a bottle.
