Join the Cocktail Revolution
The cocktail revolution is in full swing and now you can become an at-home mixologist and concoct the perfect drink.

Mixology is the art of blending sweet, sour, bitter and salty notes to create a cocktail, but it isn’t always easy to do at home. The American Juice Company has simplified the art of mixology and these juices are now available at TASTE. The all-natural, artisanal juice blends use seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices that make an ordinary cocktail, extraordinary. Each flavor is designed to stand alone or work in combination with other mixers - so you can make, hundreds of different drinks and never make a mistake. Each bottle makes 16 drinks and retails for $14.99 – less than a $1.00 a drink! Try any or all of these three flavors.

THE BLUEBERRY FINN
Apples have a delicate taste that enhances the blueberries without overwhelming the palate - similar to vermouth in a rye Manhattan. The vitamin-rich berries are loaded with antioxidants, which help to cleanse the body of toxins and strengthen the immune system.

DRINK RECOMMENDATION: Blueberry Mojito

Blueberry Mojito
2 oz white rum
1 oz mint infused simple syrup
1 oz lime juice
½ oz Blueberry Finn
2 oz club soda

THE LADY LYCHEE
This juice combines the fragrance of roses, extracted from their petals like tea, with lychees and strawberries to create a blend with a floral aroma and a delicious taste. Like oysters, it's a veritable aphrodisiac.

DRINK RECOMMENDATION: Lady Lychee Martini

Lady Lychee Martini
1 oz Lady Lychee
3 oz vodka or gin
½ oz vermouth

THE GINGER GERSHWIN
If not prepared well, ginger cocktails can be aggressively spicy. This blend ensures your cocktails have just a gingery kick, not a fiery bite that’ll scorch your taste buds. Oranges bring out the ginger’s sweet side.

DRINK RECOMMENDATION: The American Mule (a slight twist on the Moscow Mule)

American Mule
1.5 oz vodka
1 oz Ginger Gershwin
½ oz lime juice
2 oz ginger ale
