Over a Decade of Quality - Made To-Go.

Like so many ideas Pope’s Cocktails was created to solve a short-term problem and developed into a free-standing solution. With the closing of Ohio’s restaurants in the spring of 2020, the cocktail syrups created and marketed by Pope’s Kitchen sat lonely in the warehouse in need of an outlet. As the state changed it’s pandemic protocols and liquor laws to allow restaurants to offer take out cocktails, an opportunity was born. Working with our friends at The Academy Tavern, the first Pope’s Cocktail pouches were offered to the community in June.

Pope’s Cocktails has evolved from those early days of hand blending 2 gallon batches of Pope’s Kitchen cocktail syrups with handmade lemonade and vodka to a 200 gallon batch. What has not changed – Simple Quality – Pope’s Cocktails is the purest ready to drink cocktail on the market today. Our cocktails are built simply with high quality ingredients lacking both coloring and flavoring agents. It is with much pride and joy the word “flavor” does not appear in our ingredient list, because when you use actual food you get to call them out by name. Featuring high quality distilled spirits, pure cane sugar, and real juices, Pope’s Cocktails never disappoints. Pope’s Cocktails are made with distilled spirits at 10% ABV. The Blueberry Lemonade and the Mojito are both Gluten Free and all of Pope’s Cocktail products are certified Kosher.



The Pope family has always believed in the power of live theatre to educate and inspire. From improv to musicals, live theater brings joy and changes people’s perspectives.

Pope’s Cocktails works with non-profit performing arts groups in the communities where it is sold to support live theatre programing. This Summer, Pope’s Cocktails will sponsor a cornhole tournament, providing the boards and prizes, with the entry fees going directly to the hosting organization. If you have a theatre you love and support, share that story with us and let’s see if we can have an event.
Check back for updates and pictures from our tournaments.
