AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — In response to increased consumer demand for craft cocktails, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment has teamed up with Austin Cocktails at Pepsi Center to offer fans in premium seats, private suites and select restaurants naturally bottled, craft cocktails this 2014-15 season. Austin Cocktails are made with five-times distilled vodka, fine, natural flavors and sweetened with organic agave.
“We were eager to find a consistent, premium balanced cocktail that we could quickly deliver fans who are ordering off their in-seat menus and in suites,” says Travis Tucker, Director of Operations at Levy Restaurants. “We found that Austin Cocktails delivers the high quality our guests demand and improves both the wait time in line and management of perishable ingredients. Consumers can now enjoy a perfectly blended, premium cocktail quickly and easily during events at Pepsi Center.”
Not only is this offering convenient and drinkable, but it is a solution for men and women seeking a healthy alternative. Because the drinks are sweetened with a touch of organic agave rather than sugars or syrups, each cocktail is naturally under 100 calories.
“We pride ourselves on delivering a balanced blend of premium vodka, fresh herbs, all-natural fruit juices in our innovative drinks and are excited to have a premium solution for venues looking to satisfy the high demand for craft in this space,” says Jill Burns, one of the co-founders of Austin Cocktails. “We anticipate the high velocity and consistency of service to enhance the customer experience at Pepsi Center.”
The Pepsi Center will feature all four varieties in the Austin Cocktail collection, including Cucumber Vodka Mojito, Tea Twister, Paradise Found and Vodkarita.
