The popular Bud Light Lime-A-Rita franchise continues its expansion by introducing Lemon-Ade-Rita, a new summer seasonal flavor joining the Rita brand. As consumer demand for convenient cocktail solutions and more delicious flavor variants in the Rita family increases, Bud Light continues to demonstrate the unique ability to introduce new, great tasting and flavorful drinks to a broader audience of beer drinkers. Bud Light Lime Lemon-Ade-Rita is a lemonade margarita-flavored alcohol beverage with a twist of Bud Light Lime that is ready-to-drink with just one pour and best served over ice.

Lemon-Ade-Rita is perfectly positioned to provide consumers with a new taste sensation and joins the Rita portfolio including permanent flavors Lime-A-Rita, Mang-O-Rita, Raz-Ber-Rita, Straw-Ber-Rita and seasonal flavors Apple-Rita and Cran-Brr-Rita. The Bud Light Lime Rita family, named a Nielsen Breakthrough Innovation Winner in 2014, makes up more than one-third of the FMB (flavored malt beverage) category. Since the launch of Lime-A-Rita in 2012, the Rita brand’s four core flavors claim the top four spots in the FMB category. The new Lemon-Ade-Rita naturally aligns with Bud Light’s fun and social positioning and is an ideal choice for parties and outdoor refreshment, especially as the weather gets warmer.

“In just a few years since the brand’s launch, the introduction of Rita flavors has been immensely successful among consumers, both through new permanent and seasonal variants,” said Alexander Lambrecht, vice president, Bud Light. “With the widespread popularity of our winter seasonal, Cran-Brrr-Rita, we saw that consumers have found drinking and entertaining occasions for Ritas throughout the entire year. We anticipate Lemon-Ade-Rita to continue to extend the seasonality of the Rita portfolio and reinforce the brand’s stake in the summer season.”

SVEDKA Strawberry Lemonade is a contemporary twist on the wistful, classic lemonade drink. Infused with aromatic, ripe berries, the blend boasts notes of juicy lemon pulp with a crisp, refreshing finish.

SVEDKA Mango Pineapple retains a tropical island aroma, as the infused vodka is mingled with warm, tangy notes that produce a bold entry of juicy, sweet pineapple and succulent mangoes trailed by layers of a sweet tropical fruit bouquet.
