Toast to 2018 with festive, sparkling beverages for all ages.
Handcrafted cocktail mixers make it easy to get the right balance of ingredients for your cosmopolitans, mojitos and more. Serve up effervescent non-alcoholic options, such as sparkling teas, juices and water. And when the clock strikes 12, click your champagne glass filled with sparkling wine or champagne (available only in our Weston store).
Check out all of the fun, fizzy choices in our aisles:
Mix your favorite vodka into Stirrings Simple Cosmopolitan mixer for a balance of bright cranberry juice and key limes in your martini glass.
For your “dark & stormy” or “light & stormy,” find Fever Tree Ginger Beer or the Ginger Bee from Cocktail Crate Craft Mixer. Or mix dark rum with the Old Ballycastle Ginger Handcrafted Cocktail Mixer made locally in Salem by Powell & Mahoney Limited. This rich, full bodied mixer blends ginger, delicate elderflower, and fennel.
Add white rum to Stirrings Simple Mojito mixer, with some sprigs of mint and a lime wedge.
To blend with vodka, tequila or gin, try Powell & Mahoney’s Pomegranate. And make bourbon sours easily with Cocktail Crate’s Maple Whiskey Sour.
Serve up spicy Sriracha Margaritas with a mixer made from only fresh squeezed lime juice, organic agave nectar, and small batch Sriracha, also from Cocktail Crate.
Champagne and Sparkling Wine (available only in our Weston store):
The prosecco from local 90+ Cellars starts with aromas of fresh peaches with hints of ginger and lilac, with a taste of citrus. Enjoy it on its own or use it as a base for punch with juice and pomegranate seeds! Or turn it into a Peach Bellini, with the mixer from Powell & Mahoney.
Also try fruity Mionetto Prosecco Treviso Brut with a hint of apples, or Ruffino Prosecco, with notes of citrus, pears and apples. And choose from fine champagnes to ring in the year, such as Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label or Moet & Chandon Imperial.
Take home some ready-to-drink virgin margaritas and Scottish lemonades from Mocktails. Locally blended sparkling teas from Tea Guys are available in fun, fruit flavors, such as watermelon lime basil and hibiscus raspberry currant. Also find Alta Palla sparkling water and juices in black cherry, grapefruit and lemonade.
And serve up local Laurel Hill Sparking Cider in a champagne-style bottle, alongside the alcoholic versions.
Happy New Year from all of us at Brothers Marketplace!
