Arnold Palmer Spiked

A new take on the classic beverage of half iced tea and half lemonade has just landed in stores nationwide. Arnold Palmer Spiked Half & Half, a joint partnership between MillerCoors and AriZona Beverages, is a refreshing, noncarbonated blend of iced tea and lemonade made with real juice and select teas with a 5 percent ABV. It’s now available for purchase in 24-ounce cans and 6-pack 12-ounce slim cans.

“We’re excited to introduce drinkers to the spiked version of the classic Arnold Palmer. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy in the backyard or on the back nine,” said Justine Stauffer, MillerCoors marketing manager for Arnold Palmer Spiked. “In creating Arnold Palmer Spiked we made sure it had the signature flavor combination of half iced tea and half lemonade that drinkers expect from the beloved original. And with that, we believe it is sure to become the new fan favorite.”

To celebrate the launch, Arnold Palmer Spiked will be available at a wide variety of sporting events and festivals throughout the spring and summer. The brand will also host a series of launch party events at select Topgolf locations across the nation.

JACK DANIEL’S LAUNCHES WHISKEY-INFUSED COFFEE

jdcoffeeThe coffee, made with ground Arabica infused with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, promises to deliver the signature Jack Daniel’s whiskey flavor minus the alcohol.

Available in caffeinated and decaffeinated variants in both tins and packets, the coffee has gone on sale in the whiskey’s hometown of Lynchburg and online.

The coffee is due to be rolled out across the US this year, priced at $21.95 for an 8.8-ounce tin and $6.95 for a 1.5-ounce bag.

“We take a lot of care and pride in the products we craft and Jack Daniel’s Coffee is no exception,” said Charlie Newman, owner and roast master at World of Coffee.

This isn’t the first whiskey-infused coffee to hit the shelves. Last April Bulleit Bourbon released a limited edition Bourbon-infused coffee in partnership with London coffee house The Gentleman Baristas.

X Bulleit coffee was crafted from beans rested for two weeks in ex-Bourbon casks to allow the spicy notes of the whiskey to blend with the beans’ natural character. Two blends of the Bourbon barrel-aged coffee were created – espresso and filter.

NOTE: So we went to the website only to find both regular and decaf are on backorder.

 

 

Absolut® Unveils Launch of New Absolut Lime

Absolut® officially unveils Absolut Lime as the newest, most refreshingly versatile addition to round out the iconic Absolut citrus portfolio, joining Absolut Citron and Absolut Mandrin – the No. 1 selling lemon and orange-flavored vodkas in the U.S1. In addition to hitting nightlife destinations and at-home bar carts nationwide, Absolut Lime will step into the “limelight” at the 59th GRAMMY® Awards® on February 12, 2017. The brand’s multifaceted sponsorship will include TV, digital, social and a signature GRAMMY® Awards® cocktail – the Absolut Limelight.

Nearly 30 years ago, Absolut introduced Absolut Citron – a flavor that quickly skyrocketed into pop culture as a key ingredient in the Cosmopolitan cocktail. Ten years later, Absolut Mandrin further diversified the brand’s flavor line-up offering the perfect hint of sweetness. And like its citrus counterparts, new Absolut Lime features its own distinct flavor profile with a balance of full-bodied citrus flavor with a light finish.

“Lime is a very dynamic and complex fruit and we believe we’ve created the perfect flavor blend in Absolut Lime to enhance and elevate a variety of cocktails,” said Nick Guastaferro, Director of Marketing, Absolut, Pernod Ricard USA. “Thanks to a delicious flavor and easy mixability, Absolut Lime is great for going out or staying in, for creating simple or complex cocktails. We can’t wait to see how our fans take Absolut Lime and make it their own to create their Absolut Nights.”

Absolut Lime embodies the brand’s ongoing commitment to superior quality vodka.  Like every drop of Absolut Vodka found anywhere in the world, the new flavor is produced in a small village in Southern Sweden named Ahus. Ahus is Absolut’s One Source, where high-quality ingredients come from the hands of trans-generational farmers with an unwavering commitment to produce superior, high-quality vodka – all within a small, 75 mile radius.

 

Absolut Lime Cocktails Designed for Sipping, Savoring and Celebrating

Just When You Thought Pumpkin Spice Couldn’t Get Any Better – Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Has Arrived (PRNewsFoto/Diageo)

Rum lovers and pumpkin spice fanatics, get your glasses ready! Your obsession with pumpkin is no longer limited to the standard pumpkin beer and pumpkin spiced lattes this season. Captain Morgan is here to fill the void with chilled pumpkin spiced flavored shots. Prepare yourself for an epic fall season with CAPTAIN MORGAN Jack-O’Blast Limited Edition Pumpkin Spiced Rum, the first pumpkin spiced rum offering to ever hit shelves.

Stemming from last year’s celebrated release of CAPTAIN MORGAN Cannon Blast, Captain Morgan is revolutionizing the shots category once again with this new pumpkin spiced rum. Jack-O’Blast represents fall in a shot glass, blending Caribbean rum with some of your favorite seasonal flavors – fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and other autumnal spices – creating an insanely delicious shot.

“As much as we enjoyed tropical cocktails over the summer, it’s time to make room for the bold flavors of fall everyone enjoys,” said Linda Bethea, Vice President of Captain Morgan. “Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast is a must-have for responsible adult consumers during their favorite seasonal activities, whether it’s at football tailgates, Halloween parties or backyard bonfires with friends.”

While Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast boasts the identical shape of its predecessor, Captain Morgan Cannon Blast, it features autumn colors of orange and green. To solidify its place as fall’s must-have shot, the bold, round bottle simulates the look of a carved pumpkin when illuminated under a black light. The pumpkin spiced rum (60 proof, 30% ABV) has a suggested retail price of $15.99 for a 750 ml bottle and is currently available nationwide for a limited time this fall.

Best enjoyed chilled as a fall-inspired shot, Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast can also be served as a drop shot or as the key ingredient in a number of seasonal drinks. When celebrating with friends this fall, try the Apple Jack-O cocktail:

Apple Jack-O
1.5 oz. Captain Morgan Jack O’Blast
4 oz. chilled apple cider

Directions: Combine Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast with chilled apple cider and serve over ice.
