The Pink Whitney has gone viral. Especially among hockey fans. The drink came about when former NHL player and co-host of the Spittin’ Chicklets (hockey’s #1 podcast), Ryan Whitney, mentioned that his favorite way to enjoy New Amsterdam Vodka was with pink lemonade.
“Were excited to be one of a few establishments in Bozeman offering The Pink Whitney’, says Arkinda Mickelson, Food and Beverage Manager for The Club Tavern & Grill. ‘Our hockey teams, players and fans enjoy this drink and the fun way it came to be a part of the cocktail lineup’.
The drink went viral among fans of the show, and the wider body of hockey fans, and according to New Amsterdam, resulted in an unprecedented amount of social media posts from enthusiastic fans who organically coined the term ‘Pink Whitney.’
“We were blown away by the immediate response to the Pink Whitney once we mentioned it on Spittin’ Chiclets,” said Whitney in a recent statement. “We knew we had something when the fans started sending us pictures of their Pink Whitneys and when the bars and some NHL arenas started serving them as specialty drinks.” (source: breakthrubev.com). Now, New Amsterdam and Barstool Sports have turned the Pink Whitney into a championship brand. That’s a mighty team up.
