“Austin Cocktails was formed around a mixed appreciation for relaxing with good quality cocktails, and celebrating the fruits of the earth.”
Jill Burns and Kelly Gasink are the successful entrepreneurs and sister duo that are the founders of Austin Cocktails. This Austin-based and female-owned business helped ignite the cocktail to go business in our city. The founders pay homage to their farmer grandfather, Fred. Like many Austinites, Fred believed that 5pm was “cocktailtime”. He gathered friends and family on summer nights after a hard day’s work in the fields to enjoy one of his creations. This was Fred’s way of encouraging joy and connection. Jill and Kelly’s memories of these special times inspired their brand. Austin Cocktails aims to provide a real cocktail experience in a can, real cocktails made with real spirits. They offer the best combination of classic cocktail and seltzer all mixed for you and ready to go. These yummy, canned beverages are simply summer in a can. The best news is only 20-30 calories comes from mixers, which helps with the summer slim-down. Austin Cocktails is another Austin brand taking the spirits industry by storm. Let us continue the ATX tradition of supporting our local brands and businesses. Cheers, Fred!
