Well hey there, Thirsty Thursday. Where ya been? The weekend is nearly here and you know what that means? Cocktails! Today, instead of crafting your standard GGG specialty cocktail, I am checking out the cold-pressed, unpastuerized all-natural RIPE cocktail mixers.
RIPE, the first cold pressed, High Pressure Processed (HPP) bar juice can take your cocktails to a whole new level: with only fresh ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup, no GMOs and no preservatives, there’s not a fresher, more delicious cocktail juice available.
All-natural RIPE cocktail mixers come in a variety of flavors including: Agave Margarita, San Marzano Bloody Mary, Agave Lemon Sour, Agave Mojito, Bajan Punch, Classic Cosmopolitan and Cranberry Cocktail. And, the best part is, if you are intimated by mixing cocktails all you need to do is combine all-natural RIPE cocktail mixers with your favorite liquor and you are set. A high-quality craft cocktail ready in minutes.
For my first cocktail, I combined the Bajan Punch and coconut rum with a few maraschino cherries for garnish and within minutes I had a tropical, tiki-style cocktail.
For the second cocktail I went with a traditional “Cape Codder” where I used the Cranberry Cocktail mixer and vodka with a lemon garnish. Typically you would want to garnish with a lime but a lemon is just as refreshing.
The standards for cocktails at bars and restaurants have reached new heights, with fresh ingredients and homemade mixers becoming more mainstream. Gone are the days of tolerating basic cocktails, bitter liquor-store bought, cheap mixers and watered down punch bowls, now you can enjoy delicious libations made with fresh ingredients, even if you’re short on time, right in your home.
All-natural RIPE cocktail mixers are sold in stores like Whole Foods Market, as well as local restaurants and markets. Want to find RIPE near you? Check out their website to see if it is sold near you – order just order online.
I am totally digging the high-quality flavor of the all-natural RIPE cocktail mixers. On Thirsty Thursday I am super proud to say, RIPE bar juice is definitely #GGG approved.
