About Team Cocktail
If you don’t know the story of how Team Cocktail came to be, you can read about it here, but here’s the short version.
Team Cocktail was created by the Fliehs family while enjoying a trip to the Caribbean on an annual cruise. Liquid inspiration struck and they decided to bring one simple idea to as many people as possible: Life is best enjoyed in your favorite t-shirt with a drink in hand. By merging high quality apparel with drinking inspired graphics and slogans the Brand was born.
Over the years it's grown to be far more than apparel brand: it's a lifestyle. On group vacations, at music festivals, at tailgate parties and countless other events, Team Cocktail continues to expand by bringing people together.
So when I met the founder of Bubbly Side of Life we knew we had to combine forces and create some bubbly cocktail fun!
About Bubbly Side of Life
Vicki was attending Bubbles Fest in Oregon in 2017 and posted a picture on Instagram. Sokol Blosser winery commented, “You really are living your bubbly side of life!” And she quickly asked for permission to steal the phrase Bubbly Side of Life, trademarked it and saved it for the day it would put it to good use.
At the time, Vicki was in a corporate sales position and while it was a cushy job, it certainly wasn’t very fulfilling or even exciting. As the paycheck continued to decrease and workload continued to increase, it was time to explore other options.
The moment when she knew exactly what Bubbly Side of Life was to be was that moment she was told couldn’t celebrate (and wouldn’t be rewarded) for a 92% win rate (keep in mind, they originally only wanted 35%) because it wasn’t 100% win.
And that’s when I decided the Bubbly Side Of Life needed to come to life right then and there. Because there is always a reason to celebrate! Celebrating all the wins along the way, big and little makes accomplishing that final goal so much sweeter!
And here’s the other thing, so many people put off a celebration because it’s not the “perfect” opportunity. Not on the Bubbly Side of Life! There will never be the “perfect” event or the “perfect” moment, so celebrate the moments as they come….together or alone, at a fabulous venue or in your kitchen!
And every moment is worthy of a celebration. If you want to celebrate it, if it makes you happy, then that right there is your reason to celebrate! There’s always a reason and we can help find one for you if you need it!
And until Bubbly Side of Life tasting room comes to be, you can visit the virtual tasting room and find reasons to celebrate, winery reviews, bubbly cocktail/mocktail recipes and so much more. Get all the details on the Bubby Side of Life here.
Time to Happy Hour
Both businesses were founded on the same principles. Have fun, celebrate and bring people together! Which is why we are combining forces and are going to kick off this awesome partnership with Virtual Happy Hours!
Everyone loves a good happy hour, right? I mean isn't our life right now just filling time between coffee and cocktails? We have been busy deciding how we can spice up your normal happy hour cocktails and boy do we have something fun planned for you.
To get into the happy hour spirit at home, we are going to create some happy hour staple cocktails together. And then to make it even happier, add bubbly because have you ever been sad when handed a drink in a champagne flute? It’s like instant celebration!
And if you don’t like bubbly or don’t want to open a bottle just to top off your cocktail, you’re in luck because these are quite tasty even without the bubbly. (We’ve done the hard work and made sure of that for you!)
So grab your ingredients, your Team Cocktail or Bubbly gear and let’s mix up some drinks together!
