“Our connection to music runs deep, and we are always looking for ways to authentically incorporate music into what we do,” said Lori Abou Habib, Chief Marketing Officer of SONIC. “Whether they’re jamming in the car at the drive-in or at a music festival, we know music is a huge part of our fans’ lives. Now, we’re partnering with these talented artists to showcase their favorite ways to customize their drinks at SONIC. Just as their genres offer music for every fan, there’s a drink to satisfy every craving at SONIC.”
The selection of add-ins like Cranberry and Sugar-Free Mango flavors, real fruit including Cherries and Lemons, and even NERDS Candy help make any soft drink, lemonade, limeade, iced tea or SONIC Slush strike the perfect chord.
“I have so many summertime memories from my teen years until now that involve SONIC,” said award- winning Country singer/songwriter Kelsea Ballerini. “From going with friends after games to grabbing something to sip on the way to soundcheck. My go-to has always been an Ocean Water, and when you remix it with blue raspberry and real limes…it’s a vacation in a cup.”
Diamond-certified producer, DJ, and artist Metro Boomin likes to cool off with his own refreshing treat. “SONIC brings back memories from my childhood. Growing up it was one of my go-to spots to grab a quick bite with my family,” said Metro Boomin. “Now whether I’m home or on tour, or just looking for a moment of nostalgia, I hit a local SONIC. You can’t beat a Lemonade with vanilla and real strawberries, especially in this summer heat!”
