Toby Keith’s red Solo cup is about to get a little green in it. His ‘I Love This Bar & Grill’ restaurants will be serving a green specialty drink dubbed ‘Swamp Water’ for St. Patrick’s Day. Developed by the chain’s Las Vegas-based mixologist, Swamp Water is based around Toby’s signature Wild Shot Mezcal. While Wild Shot is produced in Mexico and not Ireland, it is distilled from 10-year-old green agave plants.
Swamp Water is made to be served in mason jars, but exceptions may be made for red Solo cups in honor of Toby’s smash hit “Red Solo Cup” which has him nominated for three ACM Awards on April 1. Toby is scheduled to perform during the show. Toby is also set to appear on Ellen on March 15, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 15th and Chelsea Lately on March 27th.
And if that’s not enough, the night before the ACM Awards, Toby is nominated for Favorite Male Singer at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards alongside Usher, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber.
