TAZO drops new mixology concentrates at Walmart
Is there anything better than being able to quickly and easily make up a cocktail or mocktail for friends and family? Perhaps it is having two amazing mixology concentrates from TAZO that can easily be transformed by adding multiple ingredients for the perfect cocktail or even just adding some ice and water for a quick sip.
In an epic drop from TAZO, the company we think of for delicious teas, they are giving us two mixology concentrates that are inspired by some delicious handcrafted drinks. Both of these concentrates are made with natural ingredients and can be used in a number of ways depending on what you want to do with them.
While these concentrates do not include alcohol, they can easily be mixed with your favorite tequila, rum, vodka, or whatever else works for the drink you want. And at the same time, these tea based concentrates can also be enjoyed just over ice with a splash of either seltzer water, sparkling water, or even plain water. The fact that we can find them at Walmart makes this even more impressive and fun too.
TAZO’s mixology concentrates come in two refreshing flavors
Up first we have the Ginger Lime Moscow Mule. Whether you want to use this to make a classic mule with gin or you want to try something new, TAZO makes it easy.
For me, the recipe I am currently obsessed with comes courtesy of TAZO x Muddling Memories and is the Spice Up Your Life Mocktail. (Yes, I tried some of their drinks, both with and without alcohol, but this one is summer in a glass all the way.)
To make the Spice Up Your Life Mocktail you will need:
- 5 ounces of the TAZO Ginger Lime Moscow Mule concentrate
- 0.5 ounces of ginger juice
- 1.5 ounces of lemon juice
- 2 ounces of pineapple juice
- Half of a lemon
- 1 ounce of vanilla syrup
- 3 ounces of tonic water (I admit I cheated here and used Spindrift’s Pineapple Sparkling Water instead)
- A garnish of pineapple
To make this mocktail, you will want to have a shaker on hand and then add the Ginger Lime Moscow Mule concentrate, the tonic (or sparkling) water, the ginger juice, the pineapple juice, the lemon juice, and finally the vanilla syrup. Top this with ice in the shaker, cover, and then shake for about three seconds. Next, strain your mix into a glass with ice and then garnish with your lemon and pineapple.
The second concentrate that was released was the Berry Hibiscus Margarita and this is was another win all around. I had a lot of fun with this concentrate, as it really allowed for a lot of drink possibilities, both easy and a bit more complicated. I will never be a bartender, but I am loving the ease of using these concentrates to create delicious mocktails and cocktails.
I decided to give the Tazo x Muddling Memories Hibiscus Sang-Arita Cocktail a try and found my new favorite Sunday Brunch drink. To make the Hibiscus Sang-Arita, you will need:
- 6 ounces of TAZO Berry Hibiscus Margarita concentrate
- The wine of your choice (I went with a white wine)
- 2 ounces of orange juice
- 5 raspberries
- 3 fresh orange slices (they call for orange wheels)
- 3 sticks of cinnamon
In your wine glass you will combine your Berry Hibiscus Margarita concentrate, the berries, orange juice, and the cinnamon. Top this with ice and then pour your wine over the top. Stir everything together once or twice and then garnish with orange and a berry or two.
If you are looking to make the end of summer sparkle, then you need to give these concentrates a try. I was shocked at home much I ended up loving both flavors. While I knew I would love the Berry Hibiscus Margarita, the Ginger Lime Moscow Mule was equally delicious.
These might be the thing I stock up on so that I can be the queen of cocktail making. TAZO is making it easier than ever to enjoy a tasty drink.
