BuzzBallz Introduces Holiday Eggnog Cocktails, Chillers


After a 2021 launch, Carrollton, Texas-based BuzzBallz Eggnog is returning for the 2022 holiday season with wine and spirit-based variations.

The spirit-based cocktails and wine-based chillers have an eggnog taste with vanilla flavor with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Both cocktails and chillers will be available nationally in major grocery chains for the upcoming holiday season. 

According to Nielsen, Americans spent $185 million on eggnog in 2019. Due to high holiday demand, various brands have experimented with different eggnog desserts, coffee creamers and dairy-free options. However, what has not been widely attempted is single-serve eggnog cocktails. This drink is often a large format bottle, containing at least five servings.

“Eggnog is one of the most popular seasonal drinks of all time,” said Merrilee Kick, CEO and founder of BuzzBallz. “Our eggnog-flavored cocktails are one of the first single-serve options in our industry and will be perfect for holiday parties this year.”

The BuzzBallz eggnog chillers are made with an orange wine base. The eggnog cocktails are a new spirit-based creation using rum, dairy cream and spices.

“We found most of the premade eggnog with alcohol to be somewhat harsh,” said Charles Irvin, VP of research and development. “We played around quite a bit with different spice and cream ratios, but ultimately came up with cocktails that we thought made eggnog better.”

After last year’s limited market release of Eggnog Chillers, BuzzBallz Cocktails Eggnog and Chillers will get a nationwide release for the holiday season. This seasonal flavor will join over a dozen other flavors in the BuzzBallz portfolio.

BuzzBallz, LLC/Southern Champion is a woman-owned and family-operated distillery, winery and brewery in Texas, which was founded in 2009 as the result of Merrilee Kick’s master’s degree thesis project.
