#FirstImpressions Of &Stirred Cocktail Mix
The Variants Of &Stirred Cocktail Mix
1. Bloody Mary
A classic cocktail with a well-suited combination of tomato, black pepper, lemon, and salt, all of which goes very well with vodka.
This cocktail can best be described as ‘delicious’. The flavors are just spot on. The Bloody Mary is not an easy cocktail to make. Some of the best bartenders can get the balance of sour to spicey wrong. Not here. This is a really convenient way to enjoy this cocktail if you are a fan of this tomato juice-based classic. We tried it both with and without alcohol, and the virgin version (don’t mind the tongue-twister) works equally well.
A classic combination of lemon, mint, and sugar, all of which could make a flavorful mocktail or a white rum-based cocktail.
This one, in complete contrast to our experience of the bloody mary, didn’t work as much for us. Both with and without the white rum, the flavors just don’t come close to a freshly made glass of mojito. Perhaps it needs fresh mint and lime, by itself the drink does not seem a good replacement for a bartender-made mojito.
Known to be quite tasteful when mixed with tequila, this cocktail mix claims to have a perfect percentage of lemon, dash of orange and sugar, that gives it that authentic margarita taste.
A well-balanced cocktail and all Margherita fans will enjoy this at house-parties. This would be our second-best recommendation from the entire range.
A classic blend of cranberries, lemon and a dash of orange, best served with vodka.
The Cosmopolitan mix by &Stirred works better as a cocktail than a mocktail. You need the vodka to cut through the sweetness, else the drink becomes too sugary. However, with the addition of vodka, the balance is back and it becomes a good party drink.
The advantage of a product like &Stirred Cocktail Mixes is that it allows you to have a lovely range of cocktails and mocktails without bringing a bartender home. These are really quick to rustle, and priced cheaper than what it would cost you to hire a bartender for a night. Even for a small gathering of 4-6 people, these would work well when you want some variety in the drinks menu.
Good and innovative product for the festive season.
