Upon browsing IG late at night like any regular millennial, I stumbled upon Gilded Beverage. The unique packaging initially caught my eye, & then the variety of flavors left me even more intrigued… Once I realized these mixers are locally made in Charlotte, I was sold! I contacted Jake with Gilded Beverage right away, & I’m thrilled to share with you all the outcome of our collaboration!

Farmer Phil’s Bloody Mary
While I LOVE my mimosas, I also love my Bloody Marys as well… I drink tomato juice on the reg, & sometimes a girl definitely needs a bit of a ‘KICK’ by making it a Bloody Mary on a weekend morning. This mixer has the perfect balance of sweet & sour. If you are looking for a mix with a bite that still is still smooth, then Farmer Phil’s Bloody Mary is just for you!
All I can say about the Blueberry Lavender-ade is, “YUM, YUM YUM!” This is an absolutely delicious cocktail, & I love the fun, pink color. You & your friends will definitely agree this cocktail is IG-worthy as well as delicous… Sweet, & smooth, this mixer is perfectly refreshing! Grab a bottle (or five) for your next girls’ night! <3
I am officially a fan of the mixers by Gilded Beverage! Jake certainly has a knack for taste as well as marketing… If you are a business-owner looking for some new drink options or just a fellow cocktail-lover in Charlotte like myself, then check out their contact information below as well as where to find these fabulous mixers locally!
P.S. If you like unique bottles like myself, then save a glass container & use it to store fresh sweet tea or even use it as a unique vase!
