Sentry Tournament of Champions announces signature GREY GOOSE cocktail ‘Mea Lanakila’ and Corkcicle partnership
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii – When fans arrive at The Plantation Course at Kapalua for the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January, they will have something to help them celebrate seeing the winners from the 2018 calendar year, the signature GREY GOOSE cocktail, named “Mea Lanakila” translated in Hawaiian as ‘Champion’. Hand crafted to deliver on Maui’s specific drink profile, the Mea Lanakila blends fresh juices with signature GREY GOOSE vodka for a light and refreshing drink.
A signature cocktail like the Mea Lanakila, with such carefully chosen ingredients to maximize flavor (listed below), deserves to be served in an equally grand cup, and with the help of partner Corkcicle, fans can enjoy the signature cocktail in style with a 12 oz. commemorative Tumbler featuring the Sentry Tournament of Champions and GREY GOOSE logos.
The Mea Lanakila signature cocktail for the Sentry Tournament of Champions contains:
- 2 parts GREY GOOSE® vodka
- ½ parts strawberry puree
- ½ parts lemon juice
- ½ parts simple syrup
- 1 parts grapefruit juice
“There is no better way to kick-off the PGA TOUR season than at the Sentry Tournament of Champions,” said GREY GOOSE® brand manager, David Ashcraft. “Grey Goose is honored to be long-standing partners with such a globally recognized tournament with extraordinary on-site experiences. We created the Grey Goose Mea Lanakila to toast to all the ‘Champions’ on the PGA TOUR! Cheers to all those who are lucky enough to attend the 2018 event!”
The Sentry Tournament of Champion’s partnership with Corkcicle is the first of its kind and one that fans will welcome in the Maui sunshine, as a limited number of fans will walk the fairways of the picturesque Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort with ice-cold drinks thanks to the commemorative 12 oz. Tumbler with the purchase of the Mea Lanakila signature cocktail.
“At Corkcicle, our fashion-forward products are inspired by modern design and rooted in social responsibility. Whether you’re sipping cocktails or coffee, Corkcicle products were designed to help elevate the moments we share together on and off the course,” said Corkcicle Partner Eric Miller.
With a focus on quintessential facets of Maui tradition, the Sentry Tournament of Champions aims to be more than just a typical golf tournament – it is a celebration of fans, Maui culture and the best players in the world.
“We want to put the fans first here at the Sentry Tournament of Champions,” said Alex Urban, general manager of the Sentry Tournament of Champions. “Working with two high-end brands like GREY GOOSE and Corkcicle helps us achieve this goal, and having a signature cocktail like the Mea Lanakila makes the experience even better for our fans onsite. Hopefully any of our fans ordering a Mea Lanakila during the tournament feels like a champion as they watch our field full of champions compete at The Plantation Course.”
