Simple, natural, healthy cocktail flavors from Splash Mixers are transforming everyone’s favorite summer libation.
It wouldn’t be summer without a refreshing cocktail served on the patio or poolside. The classics will never lead you astray, but healthier varieties are all the rage, and a new generation of cocktail mixers is making it easier than ever to prepare your own. Splash Mixers has introduced a collection of flavors that are perfect for summer cocktails and alcohol-free mocktails of all kinds. Maria Baum and Hilary Pereira, the brand’s founders, wanted to produce mixers that would allow anyone to mix a cocktail simply by adding a favorite spirit. “People can be intimidated by cocktails because there are so many options out there,” says Baum. “We wanted to create a mix that’s easy to use. The mixes make it so that you can enjoy your guests—they do all of the work for you. It’s the perfect measurement for serving a pitcher of cocktails at an event or party.” Not only does Splash make mixing cocktails at home effortless, but the mixers are also natural and low-calorie. “I’m so particular about how my drinks are served,” says Pereira. “I wanted delicious flavors and a healthier option. We married the two and got great-tasting flavors that happen to be healthy. The low calories are an extra bonus.” One flavor in particular, Bay St. Ginger (named for the street in Sag Harbor), has become a favorite of the Hamptons crowd. Splash is also taking its cocktail concoctions on the road with its Splash Bar Car, a vintage 1957 BMW Isetta that’s making its way around the East End, featuring “Splashologists” serving warm-weather favorites. “Everyone has their favorite summer cocktail,” says Baum. “We want you to enjoy your drink with any type of spirits or brands. These flavors don’t discriminate when it comes to building a tasty cocktail.”
