Rock & Brews is unveiling a new cocktail in collaboration with rock ‘n’ roll hall of famer Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and a selection of New American dishes––all of which hit menus at participating locations nationwide on Monday, April 3rd.

In partnership with Nielsen, Rock & Brews is rolling out a new limited-edition cocktail aptly named the California Man, which is made with the rockstar’s very own ROCK’N Vodka! The refreshing bevvy features a sweet and tart concoction of blood orange puree, lime juice, muddled mint, cucumber and soda water (full recipe available upon request). In typical Rock & Brews fashion, and as an ode to Nielsen’s epic guitar collection, the drink is finished off with a custom ROCK’N Vodka collector’s pick as a garnish. With the launch of this special drink, Rock & Brews inducts Nielsen into its star-studded family of collaborative cocktails and partnerships, which already includes rock icons Alice Cooper, Jon Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar and Slightly Stoopid, in addition to KISS front men (and franchise co-founders!) Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.
