The Links Drinks Story
On their website, Links Drinks writes the following:
We are the Evanko family. Fred has been playing golf his whole life. His grandfather was a PGA professional.
Along the way, he started drinking a cocktail found at golf clubs called a Transfusion, made with vodka, ginger ale and grape juice.
Eventually having a light bulb moment about canning this great tradition and so, Links Drinks was born. We have been married for over 20 years & are a great team. Fred’s golf experience & Denise’s creative background have helped make this cocktail in a can dream a reality, along with some amazing family & friends!
Our son Riley is off to college & there is a fourth member of our family we can’t leave out, our beloved Grace, who passed away from cancer in 2013.
We try to honor her memory every day & plan to donate a portion of our profits to help other families dealing with pediatric cancer.
