NEW YORK,June 19, 2014 –Stoli® Vodkais positioning the Lemonade cocktail as the must-have drink this summer as it launches the “100 Days to Squeeze” campaign. Celebrating a fresh twist on the classic summer cocktail, the original vodka brand will highlight the cocktail’s versatility and infusion of local ingredients using it’s renowned flavor portfolio of Stoli® Ohranj™, Stoli® Citros™, Stoli® Razberi™ and Stoli® Blueberi™.
The “100 Days to Squeeze” campaign will encourage consumers to join them in squeezing the most out of the summer season at Stoli-branded lemonade trucks and national Stoli Lemonade bar night events. The trucks, deemed ‘limo-nades’, will head out across the country to sample Stoli Lemonade cocktails, refreshing flavored Lemonade ice pops, and daring consumers to take part in fun summer challenges to win Stoli prizes.

Available at retail locations across the country, the VAP will also include a 750mL bottle of Stoli Vodka. Additionally, the brand will host more than 300 managed bar nights across the nation in 12 cities including: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Miami, Washington, D.C., and Northern and Southern California.
