Jam Packed with Fruit: Barmalade®’s first ingredient is always fruit. Other mixers have more water than any other ingredient, leaving your cocktails lacking in flavor and requiring more product.

No need to hand muddle a thing, the magic is in our mixers, ensuring a quick and easy cocktail-making experience!
The Alchemy Behind the Brew
The art of cocktail-making is nothing short of alchemy. It’s about transforming simple ingredients into a mesmerizing mixture that tantalizes the taste buds. And our Witches Brew Halloween Cocktail is a testament to this magical transformation. Let’s break down the ingredients and explore the magic behind this bewitching drink.
Reposado Tequila is known for its smooth and sophisticated flavor profile. Aged in oak barrels, it adds a subtle hint of vanilla and caramel to our brew, perfectly complementing the sweetness of the Blood Orange-Guava Barmalade®. This tequila is the spirit of our cocktail, providing a robust base that carries the other flavors and is enhanced by the quality ingredients that make up our products.
Beet juice might seem like an unusual cocktail ingredient, but trust us, it’s pure magic. It gives our brew an earthy undertone and a blood-red hue that’s just right for Halloween. Beets are a complimentary flavor profile with blood oranges, and will elevate this cocktail with its earthiness and depth. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties will help you ward off any evil spirits that may be lurking around.
Grand Marnier adds a touch of orange liqueur to our brew, further enhancing the citrus flavors. It also brings an extra layer of depth and complexity to the cocktail. Combined with the Blood Orange-Guava Barmalade®, it creates a delicious harmony of tangy and sweet.
