Toby Keith Suggests a Holiday Drink Recipe For YOUR Red Solo Cup
A hit song about a beverage holder HAS to come with a recipe for beverage "of choice", especially around the holidays, right?
Toby Keith delivers, with a holiday recipe for YOUR red solo cup.
What's red and white and evokes fond thoughts this time of year? Santa, sure, but coming up fast is "Red Solo Cup," Toby Keith's ode to the iconic beverage receptacle.
"Red Solo Cup" sold nearly 100,000 copies last week, a 90% increase for the song, which continues in the overall top 10 on iTunes. Fast approaching the 500,000 download mark, the tune is also powering gains for the album. Clancy's Tavern saw a 49% increase last week, rising again to one of the top Country albums.
At radio, "Cup" is one of the most added songs and already Top 20 just a few short weeks after its official release. Meanwhile, retailers may be seeing a run on the red Solo cup, as one visitor to Wal-Mart found at a display full of blue and yellow Solo cups. A sign tacked to the shelf read, "Thanks to Toby Keith, we are out of red Solo cups."
Helping Keith's fans celebrate the season is a new drink recipe for the entertainer's signature spirit, Wild Shot Mezcal. We hear it goes down particularly well when served in a red Solo cup.
RECIPE: Wild (s)Hot Chocolate 1 oz. Wild Shot Silver ½ oz. Kahlua coffee liqueur 2 oz. heavy cream 4 oz. hot chocolate Top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
Enjoy! (In moderation, of course, unless you packed an overnight bag) :)
