Although we launched two new products over the weekend, being at American Field Boston all day Saturday and Sunday, we didn’t get the chance to write about them. So today we have a few coming at you! Starting with White Whale bold cocktail mixers.
Just added to our Relax collection are these delicious concoctions that make it easy to mix bar-quality cocktails in just a few easy steps. Take any of the five White Whale varieties, mix one part White Whale with one part spirit, add ice, stir, and garnish. You don’t even need a shaker, though they’re not bad at all when you do use one.
Each of the recipes offers something unique and tasty. Blends of exotic juices (like youngberry) and garden-fresh herbs combine to create strong, spirit-forward cocktails that delight the palate and conjure prohibition-era speakeasies of the South. Made in Durham, North Carolina using all natural ingredients, White Whale mixers are a reliable staple behind the home bar. Their innovative, sophisticated whimsy is reflected as much in flavors as it is in their names and back-of-bottle descriptions:
Whaddaya want, eh? Some kinda neon-green cocktail like yous is down on da Jersey Shore gettin’ wrecked with Pooki, Nooki or whatever-her-name is? This ain’t spring break and if ya know what’s good for ya you’ll hav’a Manhattan. Oh, your Manhattans have vermouth in ‘em? Fuhgeddaboudit, Mr. Fancy Face. Yours’ll have cherry, blackcurrant, and anise and you’ll like it or else we’ll find ya some concrete loafers and serve ya up a mouthful of the East River.
Aw, you’re blushing. You just remembered that spring day long ago, when your heart overflowed with the promise of youth. The cool of the wind on your skin, the fear of getting caught, and the shiver when you finally took the plunge. Ah, pure bliss. Then that little punk Timmy Tanner swiped your clothes from the shore when you weren’t looking. Relive the memory with a breezy blend of mango puree and lemon. Just keep an eye on your clothes this time, OK?
We know what you’re thinking right now: “Keep your damn pine tree out of my cocktail.” Hold your horses. It ain’t pine, it’s Siberian Fir, pine’s suave older brother. And when it does the Jitterbug with juicy orange, organic lemon, and your favorite vodka, it’s magic. No, not kid’s stuff like sawing scantily-clad assistants in half. More like an ancient wizard standing on a cliff conjuring wormholes to new worlds. Let’s see a pine tree do that.
The year is 1976. You stop by Aunt Mildred’s house at, say, four o’ clock in the afternoon. You dodge the tribe of feral cats that roam her halls and arrive at the kitchen, where Mildred blends exotic youngberries with an infusion of rosemary from her garden and adds something she refers to as “Auntie’s Little Helper.” Aunt Mildred claims that the secret ingredient is love. Technically, it’s bourbon. Mix one up just like Auntie used to! It’ll be our little secret.
Have you ever tasted Lychee fruit? If you answered “Yes” you are either an exotic fruit importer or you’re lying. Probably you’re lying. Regardless, be prepared to be seduced! When this floral fruit encounters the herbal tag-team of rosemary and clove, your tongue experiences something like, well, remember the first time your eyes beheld the sun rising above an aqua sea, the perfect silence broken only by the distant cry of the humpback whale? Bingo.
