Ventura, CA – LiveWire Drinks, the canned craft cocktail line from seasoned LA-based bartender Aaron Polsky, is pleased to announce its launch in Texas. The first release, available now, is fellow bartender Joey Bernardo’s Honeydew Collins. An electrifying mix of gin, honeydew, lime leaf, coconut and elderflower, Honeydew Collins is available at select specialty shops and through Drizly on LiveWireDrinks.com. It’s available wholesale through Flood Distribution.
Created in Los Angeles and produced in Ventura, CA, LiveWire Drinks was founded in March 2020 by Polsky, who lives and breathes rock ‘n’ roll and the art of drink making. He works with the world’s best bartenders to create exceptional canned cocktails using the best ingredients. Bernardo is the first bartender collaborator, a colleague and friend from famed LA cocktail bar Harvard and Stone. Honeydew Collins, along with Polsky’s Heartbreaker and Golden God, are already in select specialty shops in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and San Diego.
“When trying to create a carbonated canned version of one of Harvard and Stone’s best selling drinks, you have to apply a little rock ‘n’ roll to the process”, says Bernardo. The Honeydew Collins was inspired by the Thai Town neighborhood of Los Angeles where Harvard and Stone is located, and where Bernardo started working in 2011. It reminds him of a summertime drink of shreds of honeydew and sweet milk his mother would make during his childhood in the Philippines.
The next cans coming to Texas at the end of the month are Polsky’s Heartbreaker, a crisp and juicy blend of vodka, oroblanco grapefruit, kumquat, jasmine and ginger, with notes of honey and a bubbly finish; and his Golden God, a sensational 7.5% ABV sparkling concoction of rye whiskey and brandy with green tea, elderflower and apricot flavors.
“A handful of the bartenders on LiveWire have worked in Texas,” says Polsky. “We’re excited to reconnect with the state’s legendary bars and liquor stores once again.”
