And now in the Relax collection, Cocktail Crate mixers!

These premium cocktail mixers are handcrafted in small batches in Queens, NYC, by a guy named Alex who quit his job in 2012 and raised funds on Kickstarter in order to bottle the recipes he’d been making for family and friends to great acclaim. The only difference between these and the one’s he was making at home is the booze; these don’t have any, so you just have to add your own and voila! first-rate craft cocktails without the bar.

Cocktail Crate Lavender Bloom cocktail mixer

Like our other carefully chosen mixers, Cocktail Crate drinks are super easy to make. Just add spirit, shake vigorously with ice, and pour. Garnish if it tickles your fancy but it’s not absolutely necessary. And they really are mixologist-worthy concoctions, with real juices and natural sweeteners like New York wildflower honey, maple syrup, and agave nectar, and topshelf flavor components like organic lavender, jasmine, and handmade sriracha.

Cocktail Crate Sriracha Margarita cocktail mixer

Each one is an original recipe designed to showcase its short list of ingredients, pairing delicately with its corresponding distillate. Since they don’t use any extracts or concentrates, the resulting flavor profiles are strikingly well balanced, especially considering how easy a cocktail it is to make. You barely even need a cocktail shaker! (though it does help)
