Sold in “foursome packs” it’s ideal for the beverage cart and halfway house, creates a faster pace of play, is perfect for golf tournaments and member events too. Coolers rejoice! 

The Ready to Drink (RTD) category is a booming market. The ease and convenience of grab and go products, no bartender needed or grocery list of items way of life has become increasingly appealing to all demographics. Especially during this past year when golf courses, bars and restaurants were limited to take out only, the RTD beverage filled that need.

Owners, Fred and Denise Evanko, started drinking Transfusions years ago, eventually having a light bulb moment about canning this great tradition and so, Links Drinks was born. Fred grew up around the game of golf while his grandfather was a PGA Professional. He also worked in the golf event space for over 20 years as the Head of Sales for the PGA Shows. His many golf industry connections combined with Denise's creative background and the support of amazing family and friends have helped make this cocktail in a can dream a reality. Their son Riley is attending college now and there is a fourth member of their family they can't leave out, their beloved daughter, Grace, who passed away from cancer in 2013. They try to honor her memory every day and plan to donate a portion of the company profits to help charitable causes and other families dealing with pediatric cancer.

Links Drinks Transfusions are now available in 10 states and over 1,000 locations and growing in 2021.  New flavors are coming soon “at the turn”.
