Share Post

Signed by the Governor, H.B. 1025 defines “mixed beverage” as a prepared cordial, cocktail, or highball that is in a can or container that holds not more than twenty-four (24) ounces of the beverage and is a mixture of: (1) whiskey, neutral spirits, brandy, gin, or another distilled spirit; and (2) carbonated or plain water, pure juice from a flower or plant, or other flavoring materials that is suitable for immediate consumption and contains not less than five-tenths percent(0.5%) of alcohol by volume and not more than fifteen percent (15%) of alcohol by volume. The bill would further allow the holder of a wine wholesalers permit to distribute such products.
