Currently, it's the season for rich cocktails and beer, but soon our cravings will turn to lighter drinks. MillerCoors is already on it and will introduce a new line of canned cocktails called Cape Line this spring.
Cape Line will be available in three flavors: blackberry mojito, margarita and hard strawberry lemonade. Each can contains 120 calories and 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, but does not contain gluten or artificial flavors.
"It’s six simple ingredients that consumers know and understand," says Sofia Colucci, vice president of innovations for MillerCoors. "They want simple ingredients, lower calories and sugar – but with all of the flavor. This is what differentiates us. Today, consumers want it all."
Stay tuned to a canned cocktail taste test this spring on OnMilwaukee.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
