Something Old, Something New for Summer 2024


Summer funtime is just right around the corner here in Ozaukee County.

Whether it's grilling out, a picnic at the park, hanging out at the beach or attending a concert in the park -- having the proper food and beverages on hand can make a world of difference.

Central Standard Craft Distillery is expanding its line of pour-ready cocktails with Rocket Pop, a boozy take on the blue raspberry and cherry-flavored popsicles that is spiked with Door County Cherry Vodka.

The bottled cocktail hit shelves across the state on May 10, and will be available at events such as the Wisconsin State Fair and Bastille Days throughout the summer.

“We’re kicking off the season with a cocktail that embodies Wisconsin summers,” said Pat McQuillan, co-founder of Central Standard Craft Distillery, in a statement. “We set out to create a flavor that’s nostalgic to Midwesterners, bringing forward memories of beach days, festivals and other summer celebrations.”

The new addition joins several existing cocktails in Central Standard’s pour-ready line, which launched in 2022. Other offerings include Door County Cherry Vodka Lemonade, Door County Cherry Vodka Mule, Red Cabin Lemon Honey Bourbon Smash and Red Cabin Peach Bourbon Smash.

The pour-ready Rocket Pop cocktail has an ABV of 15% and is sold in both 750-milliliter and 1.75-liter bottles.
