Dress Your Cocktail to Impress

A Small $.05 Investment Allows You to Charge More for the Same Cocktail

The greatest things come in small packages, right? The team at Pick On Us agrees, especially when it comes to cocktails. Like guests, we too love a beautiful, well-crafted, mouth-watering cocktail. Whether on vacation, at a wedding reception or bellying up to a local bar, cocktails reign supreme. Because of their everlasting popularity, maximizing on pricing for the artisanal beverage is paramount.

Without compromising taste and serving size, a Pick On Us Cocktail Pick enables managers and caterers alike to charge as much as $3.00 more per cocktail. Yes, $3.00 more! A versatile Pick On Us Cocktail Pick runs $.05 and can be shipped the same day ordered. If you opt for a customized pick, order 90-days in advance to receive $.05-.10 pricing per pick.

The Boat Oar Cocktail Pick takes a drink from good to great simply by presentation. The pick beautifully packages the cocktail into a drinkable piece of art. Guests will buzz about the look and taste of their drink. Quite often that conversation leads to social media posts.

Many brands in Southern California have experimented and found success with Pick On Us Cocktail Picks. In fact, select bars and restaurants – DRIFT eat + drink at the Hyatt Regency in La Jolla, Calif. and Local Tap House (LTH) and Kitchen in Oceanside, Calif. – have opted to create their own branded Cocktail Pick.

Personalized branding speaks volumes to guests because they receive an experience. A hand-crafted, branded, delicious cocktail leaves a long-lasting impression. Investing $.05 in a simple pick goes a long way toward your bottom line and overall cocktail experience.

Because no great story started with someone eating a salad! Now, it’s time for your bartender to up their garnish game!
