Melograno Cocktails announced its entering the canned cocktail market. Founders ― Reza and Shiva Mortazavi, a husband and wife team ― were inspired and influenced by the current trending industry to create a product they have yet to see, one that is designed with flavors that celebrate cultures from around the world, the company says. Melograno Cocktails are agave wine-based and meticulously handcrafted for those who are looking for sophistication, flavor and taste in a ready-to-drink (RTD), convenient slim can, it adds. Melograno Cocktails launched with four flavors: Pomegranate Cosmopolitan, a nod to Persian culture and heritage; Orange Blossom Martini, both fragrant and flavorful, an Asian ceramic is the design aesthetic; Melon Margarita, a West African fabric design paired with the indulgent sweetness of a cantaloupe in its peak of summer season; and Cucumber Lime Mojito, reminiscent of European tile-work, this flavor takes the green shades inside and outside of the cucumber and delivers a refreshing, herbaceous taste, it says. All flavors come in a variety of 12-pack, each with 120 calories, 5 grams of sugar and 5% ABV in a 12-ounce can. Melograno Cocktails has a suggested retail of $19.99 for a 12-pack and is available to purchase at high-end grocers, liquor stores, bars and restaurants. San Diego is the first market Melograno Cocktails launched in, with Las Vegas to follow later this year.
