What is a mixer?

In the context of cocktails, a mixer is a non-alcoholic ingredient added to the drink to enhance its flavor, texture, and volume. Mixers can include a wide variety of liquids and other substances.

 

Common types of mixers include:

  • Sodas and Soft Drinks: Examples include tonic water, club soda, cola, and lemon-lime soda.
  • Juices: Such as orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and tomato juice.
  • Syrups: Simple syrup, grenadine, and flavored syrups like mint or raspberry.
  • Bitters: Although used in small amounts, bitters like Angostura bitters are common mixers.
  • Other Liquids: Ingredients like coffee, tea, and coconut water can also be used as mixers.
  • Dairy Products: Milk, cream, and coconut milk.

 

Mixers are used to balance the strong flavors of the alcohol, add complexity to the drink, and provide a pleasant drinking experience.

Where do your ingredients come from?

Most of our produce is sourced from our local grocer, H-E-B, which prioritizes supporting local communities by choosing products from Texans and their businesses before looking out of state. Additionally, because these products travel fewer miles to our stores, local sourcing helps us all shop more sustainably.

When we are not hand-slicing and dehydrating fresh produce ourselves, we source dehydrated ingredients from US-based farmers and companies.

 

Do your Cocktail Infusions contain gluten?

Celiac Disease runs strong in Micah's family. We are currently in the process of obtaining the necessary certifications. While we cannot legally claim to be gluten-free certified at this time, it is important to us to offer the cleanest ingredients, excluding wheat, barley, rye, and other gluten-related ingredients.
