Back in 2007, Antonio LaMartina was relaxing in Orange Beach, Ala., with his mom. She asked him to make her a frozen cocktail. By the time he went to the kitchen, made it and brought it out to the beach, the frozen beverage had melted. He saw his nephew drinking a Capri Sun, and was struck with an idea.
Why not make frozen cocktails to go?
"Let's put booze in a bag," Antonio LaMartina told his older brother Sal LaMartina.

Americans pretending that they are still free really piss me off!
I didn’t see where they were in pouches greater than 16 oz.
Liberals heads explode with just about anything.
Ping to the Homebrewer / winemaker list.
I have seen these in the grocery store but have not had one. Any input from the experts?
New Orleans is my kind of town!
We actually visited there earlier in the spring. Took one of the haunted tours, & got to stop at a couple of places for a Hurricane as we walked along, including the Pirate Lafitte’s bar, which is haunted.
I don’t see that working for beer. Beer is stored under pressure.
No input from me.
As if we needed any more proof that Idiocracy was a documentary.
Wife’s friend came through town last year and left some pina colada mylar pouches that I think were this brand in the freezer. They weren’t bad, it’s a pretty good idea.
My bad. This thread is about PURCHASING alcohol in pouches, whereas the product I’m referring to just allows you to fill up the container with whatever you want to. On further thought, it would be tough to keep it cold.
When I was in high school one of my friend’s older brother had a brand new ‘63 Impala SS. He took the line from the windshield squirter bag and ran it to the consul between the seats. He filled the bag with gin, tonic and ice. Then while cruisin’ on Saturday night all he had to do was lift the consul lid, place a cup under the spout, tap the floor pump a couple of times with his foot and wha-laaa!
For the DIYers:
Back in the late 80’s—early 90’s New Orleans actually had a drive-thru bar, a converted fast food joint (a former Checkers, I believe).
When it was pointed out to me by my college buddies, I, a non-drinker, wanted to go through and get a virgin drink just to say I’d been to a drive-thru bar. My friends were not amused (”you know how much that costs?!) so I missed out.
I used to get around with a deerskin flask filled withbapplejack, almost 30 yearsvago.
I just bought the Pina Colada one 2 days ago, its in the freezer, I liked the $1.99 price enough to buy it, hope its good
That. Is. Amazing.
What could possibly go wrong?
