If you're in the mood for something different, get ready, folks! The summer season just got a whole lot tastier at the Bismarck Larks baseball games with the announcement of their latest canned cocktail flavor – Hot Dog Water! Yes, you heard it right—a refreshing drink inspired by America's favorite ballpark snack. Yum, right??

I personally talked with their press office today to confirm this is a reality. According to their website, this ingenious, yet weird, idea was brewed during an off-season brainstorming session, where the team at Larks aimed to concoct something bold yet undeniably delicious. Rob Williamson, the Bismarck Larks Chief Experience Officer, emphasized the importance of standing out in the world of unique ballpark treats. With creations like the Twinkie Hot Dog and the Bacos Taco, the bar was set high. If you're like me, I'll bet you are still processing all of this!

How did all this get started?

The inspiration struck when someone asked the question, "What happens to all that hot dog water?" Surprisingly, it turned out that gallons of this flavorful liquid were discarded every game day. But instead of letting it go to waste, the Larks team saw an opportunity for innovation. Enter Bismarck Distillery, known for their creative cocktail flavors and commitment to quality. Chris Fries, one of the owners and a fervent Larks fan, jumped at the chance to turn this unconventional idea into reality. Thus, Hot Dog Water was born.

After countless experiments, the team perfected the recipe, creating a beverage that captures the essence of summer and America's favorite pastime. Fans can look forward to trying this unique concoction on Wednesday, July 17th, National Hot Dog Day. This is a beverage containing alcohol, so you have to be 21 or older to have one.

But the excitement doesn't end there! The National Hot Dog Day game promises a lineup of fun activities, including the "Little Smokie" of the Game, the debut of mascot "Condimento Man," and the Hottest Dog Contest, where the cutest canine companion takes home a paw-some prize.

Rob Williamson expressed his enthusiasm for such bold initiatives, highlighting how they keep the Larks experience fresh and exciting. And with Bismarck Distillery's lineup of products available throughout the season, adult fans can savor the taste of innovation with every sip.

So, mark your calendars and grab your tickets here to secure a spot at the hottest event of the summer—National Hot Dog Day with the Bismarck Larks!
