Bungalow 23 Culinary Cocktail Mixers establishes a new beverage category: true, craft-quality cocktail mixers that are ideal for pairing with premium spirits. Their three mixers have already received critical acclaim in the past year, including a gold and two silver medals at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, a 93 point rating from the Beverage Testing Institute as well as a Platinum medal from a 100 member judging panel at the 2014 SIP Awards.
“We are proud of the awards and recognition we’ve received in this past year,” says Rick Ferrone, co-founder of Bungalow 23. “Culinary cocktails are a rising drink trend and Bungalow 23 is leading the way. Like any premium beverage, we use only the highest quality ingredients and handcraft them into smooth, complex drinks. Of course there are no concentrates or artificial ingredients in Bungalow 23, if there were; it wouldn’t be suitable to pair with premium spirits.” The craft quality mixers are currently distributed to restaurants and retailers in twenty states and are available online via Amazon.
Bungalow 23 is full of fresh fruit purees, real fruit juices and homemade extracts made from fresh cut herbs; each ingredient is hand-selected for optimal taste. These craft cocktail mixers contain premium ingredients such as blueberries grown in the fertile soil of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, pears picked from Washington’s Wenatchee Valley, prickly pears harvested from California’s Salinas Valley, agave from Mexico and lavender from France. Each of Bungalow 23’s creative, all-natural flavors has a unique, but approachable taste profile:
- Blueberry Lemon Drop: Visually stunning with a deep indigo-purple hue, the Blueberry Lemon Drop possesses unprecedented complexity and balance. A velvety texture emphasizes the dark, ripe fruit. Fresh, juicy lemons balance the cocktail and deliver a refreshingly crisp finish. Lavender and lemongrass combine to add complexity and provide rich, earthy undertones.
- Pear Ginger Martini: Fresh and elegant, this fruit forward cocktail finishes with a kick of spice offered up by the fresh ginger root. Lemons and lemongrass brighten and enhance the taste of pear and ginger while adding depth to this well balanced cocktail. Just enough sugar is added to balance the lemons and to allow the natural flavors to shine through.
- Prickly Pear Margarita: Vivid persimmon in color, this refreshing cocktail exhibits aromas of lime peel and fresh herbs. On the palate, bright citrus of fresh limes and oranges balances the prickly pear’s flavors of watermelon and berries. Blue agave nectar softens the tang, while adding richness and depth. A hint of cilantro provides an unexpected earthiness on the finish.
