Award-Winning, Portable Cocktails Now Available in Time for Summer
(June 11, 2020, Boulder, CO) — PinkiesUp: Oklahoma! Boulder-based Cocktail Squad® announces expanded distribution of its products to Oklahoma. Cocktail Squad offers a line of six premium, ready-to-drink canned cocktails fresh from the Rocky Mountains and is one of the few brands in the nation with a product line crossing over four real spirits.
Portable and delicious, Cocktail Squad is perfect for the beach, the boat, the backyard, camping, and just hanging out with the Squad!
Crisp, clean, and full of flavor, Cocktail Squad’s award-winning classic cocktails come in sleek, artfully branded 12-ounce cans with two servings per can and fresh, small-batch flavor. With six favors – Gin & Tonic, Vodka Soda, Margarita, Greyhound, Whiskey Sour, and Bourbon Smash – Cocktail Squad is the answer to yourcraving for craft drinks that are convenient, portable and delicious. All products are 10% ABV, gluten-free or gluten-removed and have an MSRP of $4.99 per can or $20 per four-pack.
Cocktail Squad® creators Lauren and John Maggio conceived of the concept while enjoying a cocktail at a new local bar.
“I had this lightning-bolt moment,” said Lauren Maggio, Co-Founder of Cocktail Squad®. “There are so many people like us who are busy, working hard and in the throes of parenthood who would appreciate an elevated cocktail that’s convenient and portable. Ultimately, we want to offer a full line of classic cocktails that read like the menu from your favorite bar.”
As part of the Squad, the Maggios brought together a unique Squad of professionals, aptly represented by its stylish bear, fox and bird logo. Lauren, originally from New Orleans, loves to highlight what she calls a Happy Hour Revival™, which happens by simply cracking open a Cocktail Squad® can.
Cocktail Squad’s spirit-based products are full-sized, full-strength cocktails in a can, making the craft bar experience accessible to anyone.
Valuing social connection, Cocktail Squad recently launched Squad Sessions ™ – weekly at home cocktail concert hours. These weekly music sets are released each Thursday at 5 p.m. MST via Cocktail Squad’s You Tube channel. And in lieu of a tip jar, Cocktail Squad is encouraging donations to frontline causes they’re supporting: Feed the Frontlines Boulder, USBG National Charity Foundation, and The Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
