Southern Distilling Company has announced a multi-year partnership agreement with the Carolina Panthers

The Blue 42 Mule is perfect for gameday

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Statesville-based Southern Distilling Company is now an official partner of the Charlotte-based Carolina Panthers NFL team. Fans will be able to enjoy Southern Star products while attending games at Bank of America Stadium. The partnership will extend beyond the field, too, with signature Panthers-themed cocktails served at bars and restaurants across the Carolinas, including the Blue 42 Mule cocktail, courtesy McKenzie Cunninham. Southern Distilling Company will also serve signature cocktails at their on-site cocktail bar and plans to host watch parties for select games throughout the season. Supporting the Panthers is something owners Pete & Vienna Barger have been doing for a long time, and they encourage fans to share their “spirit of the Carolinas” by tagging @SouthernDistilling on social media to share what Southern Star products they’re sipping.

Blue 42 Mule: 

  • 4 lime wedges
  • 2 ounces Southern Star The Standard
  • ¾ ounce mint syrup
  • 3-6 ounces ginger beer
  • ¾ ounce blue curacao

Squeeze 3 lime wedges into glass. Pour Southern Star Standard and mint syrup into glass. Add ice then top with ginger beer. Add lime wedge for garnish and blue curacao as a float.
