Cocktail Crate Mixers

Cocktail Crate makes very, very bad products. Why do I say that? Because they are so good that they make me want to drink cocktails at home alone. I mean -- it's acceptable to drink wine at home. But, whiskey and tequila -- not so much. Then again, no one said you had to drink them alone!

Seriously, I love these mixers. I ran into these guys at a show and I was like, "Yeah, they taste great, but I don't want any samples." They were like, "Why not?" I said, "Because I don't ever make cocktails because it's too much work." Then they said, "That's EXACTLY why we made this product." And they were right. They give you the mixer and you mix in one part of their mixer along with one part alcohol and voila! you have an amazing drink.

They sent me two to try at home. The first I tried was the Maple Whiskey Sour because I'm secretly becoming a whiskey aficionado. It was absolutely delish -- maple, lemon, whiskey, YES!

Next, I tried the Sriracha Margarita. I was worried about this one because I've had bad sriracha drinks before. Lo and behold, this one was very well balanced. I went out and bought a nice bottle of tequila, put one part tequila and one part mixer in a shaker, shook it with ice, and bam! had a margarita fit for a cocktail bar. The pepper spice on my tongue danced with delight!

This is way too easy.  Cocktail Crate makes five mixers of which four are vegan. They are the Sriracha Margarita, Maple Whiskey Sour, Grapefruit Daiquiri, and Spiced Old Fashioned. Only the Ginger Bee contains honey.

To try some for yourself, you can find the Spiced Old Fashioned on Amazon here. Or you can order all the other flavors on Cocktail Crate's website for $12 each.  Totally worth it! It'd make a great holiday gift or a great addition to your family holiday dinner. Drink up!

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
