Female golfers from around the world are in the midst of intense competition at the 2018 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic. Caribbean Bottling Company Ltd. (CBC) returned for the fifth consecutive year as the event’s official non-alcoholic beverage provider, and served up refreshing Schweppes cocktails at the event’s Official Pro-Am.

Golfers were treated to four cocktails at the Schweppes Garden Bar, located on the 9th hole of the Ocean Club Golf Course. The “Cool as a Cucumber”, “Ruby Red”, “Gingerlee” and “Berry Mint Mocktail” all featured Schweppes mixers and proved to be a hit with the amateur and professional mixed gender teams.

“This is our fifth year keeping the participants, athletes and attendees hydrated throughout the tournament,” said Nikia Wells, CBC marketing manager. “But, this year, we wanted to

create a fun cocktail experience for the LPGA golfers at the event’s Official Pro-Am. Schweppes grapefruit, tonic water and ginger ale are all popular mixers, but we aimed to create something special for the event by including some fresh ingredients and unique drink combinations.”

In addition to the Pro-Am Schweppes Garden Bar, CBC provided all of the non-alcoholic beverages for the event, including Dasani water and Powerade, to keep athletes hydrated and energized.
