About Social Hour

Social Hour Cocktails is a premium, New York-based canned cocktail company founded by Tom Macy and Julie Reiner, the team behind the renowned Clover Club cocktail bar in Brooklyn. The brand's name, Social Hour, is a nod to the ritualistic cocktail hour that Tom's grandparents held daily, emphasizing the social aspect of sharing cocktails with others.

Tom Macy, the founder and recipe developer, was hired by Julie Reiner as a barback in 2009. He later became the beverage director at Clover Club from 2012 to 2020. Julie Reiner, a founding partner, is a well-known figure in the cocktail industry, having opened several notable bars, including Flatiron Lounge, Pegu Club, Leyenda, and Milady’s. She is also a judge on the Netflix show "Drink Masters."

Social Hour Cocktails offers a range of unique, full-proof cocktails in the style of fizzes, highballs, and spritzes, with the same ABV, ingredient ratio, and serving size as those made from scratch. The brand prides itself on creating cocktails that are not too sweet and have a balanced flavor profile. The cocktails are produced in partnership with Ninth Planet in Saratoga Springs, NY, and are distributed by Park Street.

The company's top-selling cocktails include the Yuzu Sunset Fizz, Black Pepper Paloma, Pacific Spritz, Navy Strength Gin & Tonic, and Whiskey Mule. Each cocktail is crafted with high-quality spirits, sourced from various bulk suppliers and distilleries, with a focus on using New York-distilled spirits made from locally grown crops.

Social Hour Cocktails are known for their unique flavor profiles, such as the Yuzu Sunset Fizz's bright and citrusy taste and the Black Pepper Paloma's spicy twist. The brand's commitment to quality and creativity has made it a standout in the canned cocktail market.
