About On The Rocks The Mai Tai
On the Rocks Premium Cocktails was launched in 2016 by Andrew Gill, Patrick Halbert, and Rocco Milano in Dallas, Texas with the idea to bring the cocktail bar experience into the comfort of your home. They produce premium craft ready-to-drink cocktails using the finest natural ingredients and proper spirits.
Their aim is to bring the whole experience of having a consistently perfect cocktail, without the need for multiple ingredients and equipment, and without sacrificing taste. No preservatives are added and the range is sweetened with cane sugar only. After securing several partnership deals with airlines and hotels that recognized the quality of the product ― the list includes Four Seasons, Hyatt, Hilton, and Hawaiian Airlines ― the company took off in a big way.
"My focus was to create bar-quality cocktails that had balance and subtlety of character — making cocktails that have layers of complexity rather than being overly sweet, boozy, or otherwise. We operate under the belief that ‘good’ is the enemy of ‘great.’ We kept working on our drinks until we had ‘great’ drinks," says co-founder and mixologist-in-chief Rocco Milano.
After Beam Suntory joined to provide quality branded spirits for their cocktails, the road was paved for a smash hit. "We couldn’t be happier to have gained a partner like Beam Suntory. Their partnership will help us grow our business much faster, and our collaboration will mean that our hand-crafted, quality cocktails will also include some of the world’s finest premium spirits," said Halbert of the partnership. Right now their lineup consists of The Old Fashioned, The Aviation, The Mai Tai, The Cosmopolitan, Jalapeño Pineapple Margarita, and The Margarita.
On the Rocks The Mai Tai is built on a pillar of 4 different light and dark rums, blended into a strong foundation for the perfect ready-to-drink cocktail. The rums come from Cruzan Rum distillery on the island of St. Croix in the Caribbean. The blend is crafted to work perfectly with the orange, pineapple, orgeat, and coconut flavors, creating a tropical explosion.

The history of cocktails dates back to the not-so-good days of prohibition when people started to mix drinks trying to make the homemade or bootlegged liquor drinkable.
But things have changed since then, and cocktails have become increasingly popular with modern pop culture, from classics like Martini, Old Fashioned, or Negroni, to the more festive versions like Margaritas and Mojitos becoming staples in most bars.
