I was randomly introduced to a product that came out a couple of years ago, while in my local liquor store; it is kind of a cool place because they sell primarily alcohol, wine, beer that is organic, and the proprietor is amazing and gets to know you and what you like so he is always testing new products on you! The other day when I was in there, there was a rep for a mixer company making different cocktails like bloody mary's, margaritas, etc. I was all about getting a bottle of wine for dinner and running out of there, but the owner told me that if I missed out on this bloody mary, I would always regret it...so of course I obliged! And it was amazing! I bought two bottles and I am not looking back!
RIPE is the company that makes these amazing mixers, which are 100% fresh pure ingredients, and the bottles have a quick expiration date, so you know that the juices have been expressed within the last 6 weeks, so it is all super fresh. Also, all of the fruits and veg are from farmers in the US from various organic farms, but sometimes during cold spells they get the fruit and veg from Mexico. The fruits and veg are brought to their kitchens daily and juiced that very day, horseradish is brought in weekly, and they use premium spices. Also, it is sweetened with agave nectar so it has the lower glycemic index sweetener, thus lower calories but all the yummy flavor!! They make a sour mix, margarita mix, and bloody mary (which is spicy and delish and with a lower sodium amount than most mixes, I would totally drink virgin as a yummy vegetable drink!!!)
Go check out their website RIPE
to see where they sell local to you, and buy these mixers up! They are so good and good for you- perfect for a brunch or just having some drinks with the ladies....actually they are just good ANY time and they are now a staple in my house. People totally notice how delish they are, and they make SUCH a better drink than other mixers. Give it a try and I promise you will thank me!!
Yours in Good Health
PS- I just got an email from the CEO of RIPE and he wanted me to let you all know that they are about to release a Sangria and an Agave Mojito mixer line soon, so check it out!! Also, I forgot to tell all of you local Southern CT'ers, this line is out of Wallingford, so we can support local business buy indulging in this delish product!! You can also buy online too, if you live out of state!!
