Miami Cocktail Company splashes onto the scene with single serving, low-cal drinks
Move over Skinny Girl, Miami is home to a new, locally-based premixed cocktail purveyor, Miami Cocktail Company. Sold in single serving bottles, each cocktail checks in at 84 calories, with no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, sodium, or gluten.
The sips get their taste via natural fruit extracts, a smidgen of Splenda, and distilled spirits, including 100 percent blue agave tequila and Cuban rums. Currently there are five flavors: Old Time Sweet Tea, Cherry Margarita, Pina Colada, Classic Mojito, and Pink Lemonade.
Miami Cocktail Company is the brainchild of Ross Graham and Simon Benstead. The pair made sure that Miami style resonated through every brand detail, including the packaging, which nods our city's rich, Art Deco allure. And in-keeping with the all-natural ingredients, the drinks and their vessels are also eco-friendly, thanks to recycled materials, water-based inks, and organic and bio-dynamic ingredients. Miami Cocktail Company bottles are currently sold at Vintage Liquor and Wine Bar in Midtown. 3301 N.E. 1st Ave., #105 Miami, 305-514-0307
