REMIX is the perfect Pre-Game Cocktail. Always RTD “Ready-To-Drink,” just pour over ice and serve.
“My crew and I are always making amazing mixed drinks before we go out, so I wanted to re-create those flavors for my fans to get their own pre-game on. I mix great on the turntables, so why wouldn’t I make a great mixed cocktail that’s RTD (Ready-To-Drink)?” says DJ Pauly D with a smile, “I’m also very pumped about my team. I’ve partnered with A+ liquor industry veterans and marketing experts. Yeah buddy!”
“I am excited about REMIX, as I believe consumers will love its first-to-market, delicious flavors. Pauly was involved with the development right from the beginning, he loves it and he drinks it!

It has been a great pleasure to work with him.”
