Voodoo Tiki Tequila Teams with Pelican Beach Resort

The Pelican Beach Resort will be offering iconic Voodoo Tiki Tequila cocktails and gourmet margaritas including the famous "Desert Rose Prickly Pear Margarita."

Fort Lauderdale, FL, August 08, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Voodoo Tiki® Tequila and the Pelican Beach Resort are partnering to bring Voodoo Tiki Ultra Premium traditional and infused tequilas to the world famous Pelican Beach Resort on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The Pelican Beach Resort will be offering iconic Voodoo Tiki Tequila cocktails and gourmet margaritas including the famous "Desert Rose Prickly Pear Margarita."

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is located on the sand at scenic Fort Lauderdale Beach. Featuring breathtaking views and breezes that take you back to old Florida grandeur. Sitting right on the Atlantic Ocean, this Florida beach hotel features a zero entry pool, Fort Lauderdale's only Lazy River and of course private beach. The Pelican Grand's oceanfront dining, poolside cocktail service and modern conveniences such as complimentary high-speed Internet, and fitness center attract leisure and business travelers alike. Offering 156 rooms including 106 oceanfront suites with balconies, guests are treated each morning to the relaxing sounds of the tides and an unforgettable sunrise. Whether you are dining at the North Ocean Grille, the Oceanfront Veranda, Postcards Lounge, the pool and beach or enjoying private dining on your guest room's balcony, the Atlantic Ocean and Ft. Lauderdale Beach are never out of your site.

Specialty Voodoo Tiki Cocktails and "Infused Margaritas" will be available. Starting this week, Pelican Grand Beach Resort guests can order a Voodoo Tiki Tequila Mar-Tiki® featuring muddled orange, lime and artisan syrups. Voodoo Tiki’s latest creation, “Voodoo Magic” will debut at the Pelican hotel in August. This marks the first time Voodoo Tiki Tequilas have been sold at a wait service "On the Sand" location.

The move by the two Florida-based companies brings the award winning, boutique tequila to another key location on the Florida Beach, after recently adding 25 new South Beach Miami accounts into their exclusive Selective Retailers Program. Selective Retailers Program Members receive a level of support and product exclusivity unprecedented in the liquor industry. Retailers interested in more information on the program should contact the company at 1-Voodoo-Tiki.

Voodoo Tiki Tequila is made in small batches, with the finest ingredients in a process that results in an award winning taste profile with very little heat or bite. Voodoo Tiki tequilas feature notes of sweet agave, vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, dark chocolate and brandy, without the burn or rough finish which is synonymous with other tequilas. The company is adding a very limited number of new retailers through 2012.

"Travelers the world over choose the Pelican Grand Beach Resort as their hotel of choice when visiting Fort Lauderdale this partnership gives us the opportunity to share Voodoo Tiki with tequila lovers the world over," said Jennifer Serle, Voodoo Tiki V.P of Marketing & New Media. "A Prickly Pear Margarita while enjoying their Lazy River is an unforgettably tranquil experience."

Serle said she thinks the new offerings will attract new customers to Pelican Grand Beach Resort since many liquor retailers in the area offer little in the way of new or interesting boutique brands.

“Many of the bars on the beach are carrying the same tired old brands, and then scratching their heads as to why their bar business has fallen off a cliff. We need to get the best of these retailers reinvigorated. Acceptance as a Selective Retailer has been a game changer for many accounts countrywide.”
