We've all been there, just a little shy of unsatisfied with the normal, bland cocktail mixers overloaded with sugar and unnatural flavoring. Today, I am introducing Owl's Brew cocktail mixers. Based out fabulous New York City, the two ladies behind this company have completely re-imagined craft cocktail making. Owl's Brew currently offers three very different mixers: The Classic, Coco-Lada, and Pink & Black. All three can be mixed with any type of alcohol, including beer and wine to complement your personal taste. The Coco-lada is sweet and spicy, Pink & Black features a blend of hibiscus and darjeeling and The Classic is combination of English Breakfast tea and lemon blend. Not only are the flavors unique and full of flavor, they are also hydrating which can provide peace of mind if you decide to stray from just one round. The mixers are freshly brewed from real fruits, fresh herbs and quality spices to create a genuinely new way to sip your favorite concoctions. Visit their website to order online or to find a local retailer to pick up a few bottles for a spooky Halloween party and don't miss their online do it yourself recipes and suggested pairing combinations!
THE CLASSIC IS A BLEND OF READY TO POUR ENGLISH BREAKFAST TEA, AGAVE AND LEMON JUICE. I PAIRED THIS MIXER WITH A TOUCH OF WHISKEY AND WHEAT BEER SERVED UP IN A MASON JAR GLASS. ADD A DECORATIVE PAPER STRAW AND SERVE OVER ICE FOR A NEW TAKE ON THE CLASSIC COCKTAIL.
MY FAVORITE OF THE THREE HAS TO BE PINK & BLACK. I SHOOK UP THIS COCKTAIL WITH A SPLASH OF VODKA IN A SUGAR RIMMED GLASS TO CREATE A REFRESHING, NOT TO SWEET COCKTAIL. THE BLEND OF HIBISCUS, AGAVE, STRAWBERRY AND DARJEELING IS A PERFECT COMBINATION TO MIX WITH JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, INCLUDING WHITE WINE TO CREATE A SANGRIA INSPIRED DRINK.
THE COCO-LADA IS SWEET AND SPICY WITH A TOUCH OF COCONUT, CHAI SPICES AND PINEAPPLE JUICE. AFTER MIXING UP THE COCO-LADA WITH SPICED RUM, I ADDED A CINNAMON STICK AND FRESHLY CUTE APPLES FOR A FUN, AUTUMN INSPIRED GARNISHED. THIS MIX CAN BE ALSO BE PAIRED WITH SPICED RUM, BEER, VODKA OR CHAMPAGNE TO CREATE A FLAVORFUL DRINK.
