Sway is available in two flavors – Strawberry & Guava or Grapefruit & Ginger.

The weather is getting warmer this weekend and we all know what that means: we need more canned fruit drinks.

MadTree was on top with the release of their line of canned cocktails, Sway. On tap at MadTree’s Oakley Bar from Friday, March 5 and hitting store shelves Monday, March 7, these cocktails have us dreaming of summer.

Currently, there are two flavors of this vodka-infused 4.5% ABV drink – Strawberry & Guava or Grapefruit & Ginger. These tasty watered down sodas will be sold in cans in four packs.

In a press release, MadTree co-owner Brady Duncan said when they saw the rise of canned seltzers and cocktails, they started considering making some themselves. “But we also wanted to create a product in our own MadTree style,” he says.

Duncan says they then set to work creating a product they knew their customers would love, which is how Sway ended up being made with Cincinnati vodka. North Side Distillation.

“As we tested different vodkas, Northside continued to do very well in the blind tastings and blended very well with the flavors as well,” head brewer Ryan Blevins said in the release.

Sway will be served at MadTree Alcove’s new Over-the-Rhine bar, restaurant and event space, opening to coincide with Sway’s in-store release on Monday, March 7.

MadTree Brewing is located at 3301 Madison Road in Oakley. Alcove is located at 1400-1410 Vine St. in Over-the-Rhine. Find more information about madtreebrewing.com.
