My name is Aaron, and I’m the managing partner of Macadoodles here in Columbia. My family purchased the franchise in October of 2013, and we’re passionate about this business, our products, and the Columbia community.

All of us here at the store want to help provide fun and flavorful cocktails for you to enjoy this summer. Choosing from our more than 3,000 selections of wine, I’ve included two of our favorites below. They’re perfect for a warm summer evening spent on the patio with friends and family!

1 ounce juiced watermelon
