Not only will the drinks be mixed with alcohol and juices, but it is going to be rum-based and sparkling, the news outlet reports.
Hagar told USA Today that Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. will start off with four different flavors, including Tangerine Dream, Pineapple Splash, Island Pop and Cherry Kola Chill. Moreover, each drink will be packaged in a 12-ounce can.
The former Van Halen singer also said the cocktails will be low in calories and have an ABV of 5.5%. Fans who are looking forward to trying the sparkling cocktails themselves can expect to find it in retail locations throughout California, Nevada and Texas.
Years before Hagar decided to dabble in the ready-to-drink cocktail business, he had founded Cabo Wabo Cantina and tequila brand inspired by the Van Halen song of the same name. He also started Sammy's Beach Bar Rum, which his cocktail brand will be a spinoff of.
"What I tried to accomplish with Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co., and I believe I did, was to make the best tasting, highest quality cocktail in a can," Hagar told FOX Business while noting the cocktails will include his Beach Bar Rum. "The cocktails are sweetened with pure agave nectar which adds a little flavor as well. I’ve been involved every step of the way, from developing the flavors to selecting ingredients."
Hagar added that his Beach Bar Cocktails will not contain malt, gluten or additional coloring. Each 12-ounce can is supposed to be under 130 calories.
While many celebrity-backed alcohol brands exist, ready-to-drink cocktails and sparkling alcohol-based beverages are still growing markets.
According to forecasts published by market research firm Grand View Research, the ready-to-drink cocktail’s market size is projected to reach nearly $1.8 billion by 2028 while the sparkling drink category known as hard seltzer is projected to exceed $14.6 billion by 2027.
