Our Story

We are on a

MISSION

Our Mission is to create fun, innovative cocktails for the world. If we had to sum up our vision statement in three words, it would be: Reinventing Happy Hour.

Plus, all of our products are gluten-free and kosher certified. We are also proud to be partnered with recycling leader TerraCycle to recycle our ballz.

How did it all start?

On a hot Texas afternoon in the mid-2000s, then-high school teacher Merrilee Kick was sitting by her pool grading papers when she had a hankering for an alcoholic beverage. She thought it would be cool to sip a cocktail out of a plastic container versus a fragile cocktail glass

Merrilee came up with BuzzBallz’s signature spherical shape thanks to a memento in her house—a glass votive from a recent family trip. She was at a sporting goods store when a can of tennis balls served as inspiration for a pop-top she could use.

After graduating with an MBA, Merrilee tirelessly researched the industry and took out a loan to launch her company. She enlisted her family to help get the business off the ground and now BuzzBallz are sold nationally! These pre-mixed cocktails are also sold internationally.

We work with TerraCycle to ensure our packaging is properly recycled. We encourage all BuzzBallz consumers to participate in this program to send their empty containers to TerraCycle. Once collected, the BuzzBallz packaging is cleaned and separated by material type. The materials are recycled into raw formats that manufacturers use to make new products.

Cocktail Innovation

Our vision statement is reinventing happy hour and our Mission is to create fun, innovative cocktails for the world. We are already shaking up the ready-to-drink cocktail industry with our unique packaging and high ABV. Even though we already have a dozen different flavors to choose from, we are always experimenting with formulations and releasing new products every year.
