The next time you have a chaotic day, kick back with CHAOS COCKTAILS and let it all go. Enjoy a refreshing natural flavor, low in sugar, carbs, and calories.
Created by Texas entrepreneur, Lesley Sarkesian, CHAOS COCKTAILS is the country’s first twist & serve, low-calorie, low-carb vodka cocktail complemented with 26 natural citrus and berry flavors. With a vision to create contemporary products to “control chaos,” Sarkesian has blended the perfect concoction and wrapped it up in sleek, vibrant packaging. CHAOS COCKTAILS brings the taste of the pre-mixed cocktail to a soaring new level.
It was 30 years ago when Sarkesian first mixed up her signature cocktail, raspberry and citrus vodka along with natural fruit juices and low-calorie sweeteners, now known as CHAOS ON THE ROCKS, in her own kitchen.
“I was never satisfied with just a couple of mixers and certainly not happy if they had carbs and calories,” she said. “After many years of enjoying with friends and family, I decided to share it with the world.” And she did, when she saw an opening in the market during her break from the corporate world in 2011.
The brand’s goal, to provide a solution to life’s everyday chaos, was inspired by the first beloved recipe Sarkesian had become known for.
CHAOS ON THE ROCKS is distributed by Republic National Distributing Company, the second largest beverage alcohol distributor of premium wine and spirits, and is sold to every retail chain in the targeted market in Texas. CHAOS ON THE ROCKS is officially classified in the Ready-To-Pour Mixed Spirit Industry, but since then, Sarkesian registered her own catchy phrase for her cocktail, “twist & serve.”
Sarkesian’s brand sticks with all natural ingredients and low carbs and calories so women can enjoy their nights out and not worry about their figures. “Women have been under-served because we have been over-served calorie-filled cocktails,” Sarkesian said. “I wanted to change this.” Though there are other low-calorie, low-carb vodka cocktail options on the market, Sarkesian said that none of them have an outrageous taste like her spirited cocktail.
CHAOS ON THE ROCKS (per 1.5 fl. oz) has 43 calories and zero fat and protein. Women who juggle so much in one day now have the perfect relaxation potion. But it’s not just the ladies who are sipping on CHAOS. In a blind taste- testing that was conducted prior to the launch of the cocktail in late 2012, CHOAS ON THE ROCKS was proven to be the preferred choice between men and women.
This pre-mixed 750 milliliter bottle of vodka cocktail can be purchased at local retail stores, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in the key cities across Texas, including Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Waco, and the surrounding areas. Whether you’re curled up in front of the TV or out on the town, with CHAOS ON THE ROCKS, you can relax and unwind, because you know exactly what you’re drinking.
Created to refresh and inspire, Sarkesian hopes her original cocktail can help consumers do more with less. As she said, “Chaos is a constant in all of our lives, so we might as well celebrate it, right?”
