HELLOOOOO NEW COCKTAIL CRATE MIXERS! As y’all probably know, I’m really into these mixers. I’ve written several articles about Cocktail Crate mixers and 100% of the time, they’ve been awesome. I’m not sure what kind of magic Alex uses to make his stuff, but damn son!
This time, he sent me a Grapefruit Daiquiri mixer and a Maple Whiskey Sour mixer, so break out the bottles and let’s goooooo!
Always follow the recipe y’all, you will not be disappointed.
As the good bottle says, use one part clear spirit and one part Cocktail Crate Grapefruit Daiquiri Craft Mixer. The bottle recommends: Rum, Gin or Vodka but this is also really great with Blanco Tequila!
Cocktail Crate Grapefruit Daiquiri
- 1 1/2 oz White Rum, Gin, Blanco Tequila, Cachaça (or whatever!)
- 1 1/2 oz Cocktail Crate Grapefruit Daiquiri Mixer
Combine ingredients over ice and shake it like a rocket. Double strain into coupe. Aaaaaah, yes.
Once again, follow the ratios, this mixer makes an excellent Whiskey Sour.
The suggestion is for Bourbon or Rye, but I’ve tried Maple Whiskey Sour mixer with Berkshire Ragged Mountain Rum (aged in Bourbon casks), Yamazaki Japanese Whisky, Rye and as a bonus…
…this White Pike Whiskey from upstate NY. Wow. You have to try Maple Whiskey Sour + a White Dog Whiskey (unaged Bourbon), cause it’s totally AMAZING.
Now this mixer is made with Maple Syrup, Lemon, some other stuff, and Bitters. Personally, I wanted a tad more Bitters, so I’ve been adding one dash of either Hella Bitters Citrus Bitters or Angostura Bitters.
Cocktail Crate Maple Whiskey Sour
- 1 1/2 oz Whisky, Whiskey, Bourbon, Rum aged in Bourbon, (or whatever Whiskey you want!)
- 1 1/2 oz Cocktail Crate Maple Whiskey Sour Mixer
- Garnish: Lemon peel, Lemon wheel, or Cinnamon bark
Combine ingredients over ice and shake. Strain into double Rocks glass over ice and garnish.
Thanks to Alex for sending me these delicious mixers! Cocktail Crate is supreme above all other mixers!
