Crafted Cocktails Mixers: Bold flavors using Watermelon and Pineapple... What is not to like?
The Crafted Cocktails name says it all with a lineup of top shelf, quality cocktail mixers that make it easy to enjoy your favorite cocktails at home without all the messy ingredients.
In this review we tasted the Mai Tai and Jalapeño Pineapple cocktail mixers along with the Asian Pear shrub. We generally followed the recommended recipe on each bottle.
Spicy Watermelon Cocktail Mixer
Hands down... one of the best cocktail mixers we have ever tasted. We tried it with tequila to make a killer Margarita at home. The combination of the real Watermelon flavor and spicy pepper extract is so mouthwatering and refreshing that we drank almost the whole bottle in one sitting (we were at home, so it ended well).
The unique combination of flavors really works well together and the real watermelon flavor takes us back to those summer picnics we used to have as kids. While we tried it with tequila, we could see it pairing well with rum or vodka, depending on your preference.
If you're looking to try something new or just love the flavor profile, you definitely will not be disappointed with this delicious cocktail mixer!

Mai Tai Cocktail Mixer
The Mai Tai, created by Trader Vic, is one of the most classic cocktails of all-time, typically combining the character of rum, fruity sweetness and tart citrus flavor. But there is no law on how to best achieve this amazing combo of flavors. The Crafted Cocktails Mai Tai mixer is a unique take on this classic cocktail by combining guava puree with orange and passion fruit flavors. You will notice there is no orgeat or almond flavor in this mixer but it didn't matter because it was still delicious. It was a flavorful, tropical drink with great guava flavor in the spirit of a classic Mai Tai cocktail.
We also tried different variations by adding coconut rum or orange juice to give it an extra tropical boost. While it may not be the original Mai Tai recipe, it certainly tastes great, especially if you like guava. If you love tropical fruit cocktails and want great flavor for your Mai Tai then we highly recommend this tasty cocktail mixer.
