NEW YORK, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Adult Beverage Co. (ABCo) the nostalgia-inspired, innovative spirits company launched by lifelong friends and busy moms who reinvigorated the pour-and-serve category with the blockbuster Adult Chocolate Milk®, proudly announces the launch of their latest creation: Adult Limeade®. Adult Limeade is a premium pour-and-serve cocktail and the only one in the category to feature 100% Blue Agave Reposado Tequila – which is among the best tequilas on the market, available and bottled exclusively in Mexico. Adult Limeade offers consumers an easy and versatile option that can be enjoyed on its own over ice as a new approach to the traditional margarita or blended with other mixers to create custom favorites for Cinco de Mayo celebrations, backyard barbecues and much more.
"Adult Limeade is the perfect balance of tart limes, sweet agave nectar and the kick of 100% Blue Agave Tequila," says Tracy Reinhardt, co-founder of Adult Beverage Company and creator of the proprietary recipe. "We've taken the classic taste of summertime favorite limeade and turned it into an adults-only beverage that is refreshing, nostalgic and high-quality – while offering versatility to any well-stocked bar this summer and year-round."
The 40-proof Adult Limeade is made exclusively in Mexico and does not require refrigeration. Packaged in ABCo's signature retro-chic bottle, Adult Limeade is available in 750ml and liter size options. It retails for $19.99 and $23.99, respectively.
"We are thrilled to launch Adult Limeade as a natural extension of our product portfolio," says Nikki Halbur, co-founder of Adult Beverage Co. "Our goal is to have Adult Limeade take its place as a category leader and a delicious new option for consumers who have come to expect ABCo to deliver the very best pour-and-serve cocktails that allow them to Re-Taste Your Youth At 40 Proof!"
