We have a new set of favorite cocktail mixers around that you might already have in your fridge: 1915 Bolthouse Farms™ organic cold-pressed juices. These juices weren't made specifically for cocktails...they just happen to taste great when used for libations because of their natural origins and non-GMO status. Our recent assignment was to incorporate four of the new 1915 Bolthouse Farms juices into four delicious drinks. Well, when a mixologist's materials are this good, it's easy to produce a great-tasting cocktail!
What we especially love is that each bottle already has multiple ingredients mixed together for you. So instead of shopping for organic apples, grapefruits, peaches, and raspberries and then figuring out the best way to collect the juices, all you have to do is reach into our refrigerator, twist open the cap of a nice cold bottle of 1915 Bolthouse Farms juice, and measure away.
Here are the recipes we crafted that are sure to be wild hits all summer long.
