Boca Raton, Florida – July 23, 2022 – Fans and local residents gathered at Waterstone Resort & Marina this past Saturday to join Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and spirits trailblazer Sammy Hagar to celebrate the Florida launch of Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. His award-winning top-shelf sparkling rum cocktails in a can are now available throughout the Sunshine State.

Quote from Sammy Hagar: If you go through life the way you want to be treated, you will be ok!
“I tried the Cherry Kola and Tangerine Dream. Loved both. For someone that doesn’t really like the taste of liquor these are a refreshing, tasty choice for a drink.” Patty McCall, The Hollywood Times
I feel blessed to have interviewed such a legend. Sammy is charismatic and full of good energy. So many questions I wanted to ask.
We both thought the interview could of been a little longer but he only had so much time allotted before he had to get out to all the fans and start mixing drinks.
My stay at the Waterstone was a great experience. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The 9th floor view from the room was incredible.
Hagar took over as bartender at the Waterstone Resort in Boca before boating on Lake Boca Raton, where he tossed his new canned cocktails and T-shirts to fans on other boats.
Hagar’s loyal fans, the Redheads, came from all over the state to see Hagar hop behind the bar, where he handed out cans of his new Beach Bar Cocktails and made cocktails with his Santo Tequila Blanco, Santo Tequila Reposado and Beach Bar Rum.
Signing everything from T-shirts to album covers and guitars along the way, Hagar posed for selfies with dozens of fans before getting on a boat and surprising boaters on Lake Boca Raton, where he tossed canned cocktails and koozies to other boaters.
Hagar’s award-winning Puerto Rico-made Beach Bar Rum steeps island flavors into the canned cocktails, which are available in four playful twists on classic flavors: Tangerine Dream, Pineapple Splash, Island Pop and Cherry Kola Chill. Made with all-natural ingredients and sweetened with agave syrup, each 12 oz. can is under 130 calories, contains five grams of sugar, and is 5.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).
Fans also enjoyed signature cocktails made with Santo and Beach Bar Rum, including Santo Ranch Water, Classic Santo Margarita, Smoky Paloma, Red Head Mai Tai, Maui Spiced Beach and the Rockin’ Daiquiri. Recipes for these cocktails and many more can be found in “Sammy Hagar’s Cocktail Hits: 85 Personal Favorites from the Red Rocker.”
Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. debuted last year and the cans are now sold in retail locations, restaurants and bars throughout Nevada, California, Texas and Florida. A celebration of beach life, Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. supports non-profit organizations supporting beach and ocean clean-up initiatives.
