Craving a whiskey cocktail, but not all the recipe tinkering, shaking, stirring—and possible next-day headache—that come with it? Jack Daniel has your back.

That's right, Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee has just released a new line of canned cocktails. Just in time for summer, the whiskey-infused, 12-ounce, ready-to-drink sips come in three flavors: Jack & Seltzer, Jack & Cola and Jack, Honey & Lemonade.

About on par with Social Club Seltzers, another recently launched canned adult beverage option, these all contain 5 to 7% alcohol. The Jack & Seltzer is the lightest, at 97 calories per can. (Compare that to a standard 6-ounce whiskey and lemonade or cola cocktail you'd order at the bar, which has about 13% alcohol.)

As more Americans are seeking lower-fuss, lower-calorie and lower-alcohol (read: less hangover-inducing) happy hour options, drink brands are rushing to fill shelves with a diverse lineup of spiked seltzers, alcoholic kombucha and canned cocktails.

In fact, this isn't the first Jack Daniel's foray into pre-mixed drink territory. This new Canned Cocktail series joins the brand's Country Cocktail line, which includes Black Jack Cola, Cherry Limeade, Southern Peach and five other flavors in bottle format.

Jack Daniel's Canned Cocktails will be available this summer in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans ($12.99) and single cans ($3.99). They're rolling out first in select states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Hampshire, Nevada, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
