SATURDAY SIPS: EASY COCKTAILS WITH STOLEN FRUIT MIXERS

I love a good cocktail, but can get daunted by long ingredient lists and too many steps to get to my end result. That’s why we often feature 2-ingredient cocktails here on Momtrends. We know you’re busy, you’re tired, and you don’t have time to spend 30 minutes making a cocktail. But this month, I’ve discovered a ridiculously easy way to get a delicious, complex-tasting cocktail in just seconds: Stolen Fruit Mixers.

EASY COCKTAILS with Stolen Fruit Mixers

True, you could just mix your vodka with lemonade or add some gin to your your La Croix can. But with Stolen Fruit Cocktail Mixers you get a grown-up cocktail that comes together fast.

Stolen Fruit Cocktail Mixers

Stolen Fruit Cocktail Mixers come in five yummy flavor combinations:

  • Hibiscus Grenache
  • Blood Orange Muscat
  • Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc
  • Jasmine Juniper Viognier
  • Fig Grains of Paradise Zin

These mixers also allow you to make delicious mocktails by just substituting out the alcohol for sparkling water, making Stolen Fruit Mixers a perfect option for baby showers and still making designated drivers a special drink.

While their website lists lots of recipe options for both cocktails and mocktails, the basic ratio for all the mixers is this:

  • For cocktails – 1 part mixer:1 part alcohol
  • For mocktails – 1 part mixer: 2 parts sparkling water

How easy is that? So whether you love vodka or gin or need to make it booze-free, you can mix-n-match to create your ideal drink.

This weekend I tried out two Stolen Fruit Mixer cocktails: the Lemongrass Ginger Drop and the Hibiscus Margarita.

Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc Bottle Shot with Lemongrass Ginger Spritzer

Lemongrass Ginger Drop

  • 1.5 oz Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc mixer
  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 0.5 oz lemon juice

Shake all ingredients and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Stolen Fruit Mixer Hibiscus Margarita

Hibiscus Margarita

  • 1.5 oz Hibiscus Grenache mixer
  • 1.5 oz tequila
  • 0.5 oz lime juice

Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass, or pour over ice.

I love that the cocktails took just seconds to make but taste like I spent much more time on them than I did. My favorite of the two? The Lemongrass Ginger Drop – refreshingly delicious with not too much sweetness and just enough ginger to give it a kick. And luckily it was just as easy to whip myself up a second one!

Visit Stolen Fruit’s website to order online or if you are in California, find a retail location near you.
