As if she did not have enough going on, superstar Jennifer Lopez is behind the creation of THE HOUSE OF DELOLA LLC, a company she founded to launch unique, mixology-level cocktails, and for that reason, she had to recruit the best in their field.
Known for her strong work ethic, Jennifer still prioritizes balance, and between projects she makes time for friends and family.
Jennifer, also known as “Lola,” enjoys a glass of rosé, champagne, or a light cocktail. One of her favorite places to unwind is the Italian coast, this is where she discovered spritzes and was inspired to develop her own refreshing and flavorful drink. Per her wishes, the spirit-based cocktails had to be free from artificial colors and without all the sugars traditional spritzes can contain, crafted with natural botanicals, gluten-free and low in calories.
Jennifer began developing Delola in 2020 in collaboration with drinks industry veterans, Ken Austin and Jenna Fagnan and her manager and business partner Benny Medina.
Next came one of the most important links, finding the best mixologist. Jennifer brought in globally renowned mixologist Lynnette Marrero to formulate these unique cocktails.
Lynnette was voted 2021 “World’s Best Bartender” by her peers around the world and is known for her ability to create the finest, most delicious world-class crafted cocktails.
“DELOLA SPRITZ” is available in three original cocktails:
BELLA BERRY SPRITZ made with berry, hibiscus and premium vodka; a full-bodied cocktail with notes of red berries, hibiscus and citrus. My absolute favorite.
PALOMA ROSA SPRITZ made with grapefruit, elderflower and premium tequila; an elevated Paloma with notes of ripe, luscious grapefruit, rich elderflower and a dash of salt. Also, very good and light on the palate.
Last is L’ORANGE SPRITZ made with orange, passionfruit and premium amaro; an ode to the Italian spritzes with notes of bright, delicious fruit perfectly balanced with the bitterness of amaro. If you like fruity, this drink is for you!

Who are the players:
Jessica Spence, North America President of Beam Suntory, stated, “When Jennifer, Benny, Ken and Jenna came to us with the Delola concept, we immediately knew we wanted to be involved. Our partnership with Delola is part of our larger global RTD strategy and Delola is the perfect complement to the brands in our portfolio. We are incredibly excited to leverage our capabilities to bring Delola’s unique proposition to consumers and make it a tremendous success.”
Wayne Chaplin, CEO of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits stated, “Jennifer Lopez is someone we know and admire as a global multi-talented artist and entrepreneur. People around the world love her for many reasons and we are thrilled to represent Delola in the United States with Jennifer, Benny, Ken, Jenna, and our partners at Beam Suntory. We have known and worked with Ken and Jenna who have created iconic brands such as Teremana Tequila with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey with Conor McGregor and Avion Tequila.”
Jennifer and the Delola team are also working to develop a scholarship program that will contribute money towards higher education for women who might not otherwise be able to receive that education.
It is hard to choose between the three flavors, but the good thing is you don’t have to.
I recommend that you get a bottle of each and alternate. The more you try the more you will love it. Definitely the number one drink in my book for the summer!
