NEW YORK, March 29, 2023 -- OTR™ Premium Cocktails, the ready-to-serve cocktail brand developed by award-winning mixologists, has released the first-ever Midori Sour offered in a ready-to-drink format.

The OTR Midori Sour Limited Release is an expressive cocktail that harmonizes Midori Melon Liqueur infused with Japanese melons, smooth vodka, and notes of bright lemon and lime and will be available beginning in April in select markets nationwide for a limited time.


Midori, originally from Japan, and aptly named for its vibrant green color, made its US debut1 at the Saturday Night Fever launch party at the iconic New York City haunt- Studio 54. Fast forward to today, with 1980's nostalgia sweeping pop culture trends from music to fashion, television and beyond, it should come as no surprise that online searches for another 1980's staple - Midori cocktails - have increased 83%* this year.2

"This limited-edition release of Midori Sour energizes and capitalizes on a trending era we know our consumers are experiencing firsthand and that has influenced top bar programs nationwide."


OTR Premium Cocktails was founded on the principle of delivering all the complexity and craftsmanship you would find at a bar, in a ready-to-drink cocktail, bringing that luxurious convenience into your own home. OTR Midori Sour boasts premium ingredients, bold flavor and vibrant color, perfect for elevating and energizing a celebratory moment, anytime, anywhere.


"With OTR Midori Sour, we are paying homage to the iconic cocktails that shaped 1980's nightlife by tapping into Beam Suntory's rich portfolio. As Beam Suntory is the originator of this iconic liquid, it's exciting to bring it back to life in this new format. OTR cocktails are all about finding the balance and flavor that gives you an experience that's greater than the sum of its parts, and our OTR Midori Sour is no exception," said Rocco Milano, co-founder and global brand ambassador, OTR Premium Cocktails.

About OTR™ Premium Cocktails

On The Rocks Cocktails (OTR) was founded in 2015 when restaurateurs Patrick Halbert and Rocco Milano, left the world of fine dining and embarked upon creating a line of craft-made bottled cocktails. Joined by Andrew Gill, the three began designing ready-to-serve cocktails using only the most premium natural ingredients – from recipe to manufacturing. The founders pioneered in experiences and places where a bartender was not available, and elevated beverage options in settings where convenience is in demand.


OTR Cocktails established itself early in the field with premium collaborations in the airline and hotel industries. Life doesn't wait for the bar; some moments call for a complex drink in an unconventional setting. On The Rocks Cocktails was crafted to rise to your occasion and bring the bar to you. OTR is currently available nationwide in nine popular cocktails including The Aviation, The Cosmopolitan, The Jalapeño Pineapple Margarita, The Mai Tai, The Manhattan, The Espresso Martini, The Daiquiri, and The Old Fashioned.
