LIQS Cocktails Shots — created in New York City by Harley Bauer and Michael Glickman, two born-and-raised New York entrepreneurs — launched in Miami in October 2013. After that market test, the duo, with the help of Southern Wine & Spirits of Florida, expanded statewide and took its  portable shots to Massachusetts (United Liquors), Texas (Glazers), Rhode Island (Rhode Island Distributing) and, as of last month, Canada.

LIQS are made from premium spirits (6x distilled vodka and 99% agave tequila) and all-natural flavors. They are low sugar, low calorie, Kosher, and Made in the USA, according to the company. LIQS’ flavors include Tequila Cinnamon Orange (27.5% abv), Vodka Lychee Grapefruit (22.5% abv), Vodka Kamikaze (22.5% abv), Vodka Cucumber Lime (22.5% abv) and its newly released, Vodka Lemon Drop (22.5% abv).

Available in single flavor 3-packs, LIQSCocktail Shots retail for $7.99 and will be distributed by Park Street Imports in NY and NJ. LIQS are also available for online purchase (domestic only) at LIQSshot. com, as well as in liquor stores, hotels and bars/clubs throughout Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Canada.
