I must say, the response to our eco cocktail party ideas has been SO much fun. Now I know I don’t need to hide my slightly alcoholic thoughts from you any longer, mis compadres de cócteles.
If you subscribe to our weekly updates, you’ll get the Eco Cocktail Handbook in your welcome letter.
In this subscriber-exclusive, you’ll find our top selections for making some spectacular libations – with just 5 minutes or less prep time and no strange ingredients to buy that you’ll only use once. (Plus, b/c these concoctions are organic, you won’t be downing cups of pesticides! Party on!)
We feel confident that you’ll love at least a few of these because of our rigorous selection process: we first polled the 40 eco-cocktail party attendees for their fave cocktails of all time, then we narrowed them down to 6 and eco-fied them before putting them on the line at our party.
Between hanging with baby Sky and backyard chickens, and trying to corral Maximo back to man the BBQ, I was able to make my rounds and get a pulse on likes and dislikes. Honestly, everyone seemed to really like each of the cocktails for one reason or another. In fact, we summarized why each one is special in the Eco Cocktail Handbook.
We also tested out some of the organic pre-made cocktail mixes (for the especially lazy or time-deprived), and even those were a hit. If you aren’t into “sweet” though I recommend cutting them with some organic club soda and a squeeze of lime – which means you can drink twice as much! (In all seriousness, it’s extra important to go with organic mixers to ensure they aren’t made with synthetic preservatives.)
Note for teetotalers and pregnant mamas: we included a bodacious berry mocktail recipe that CRUSHES the usual “sparkling water with a squeeze of lime” lame option.
Enjoy yourselves to the fullest, and of course no drinking & driving. DUH. Eco-cocktail-party-turned-slumber-party, anyone? 😉
PS: Perfect for “hair of the dog” or a civilized brunch: the organic Coconut Water Lychee OM Cocktail mixed with some bubbly. It’s a new-n-improved bellini with some hydrating coconut water. So smaht – ey?!
OH and let us know IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW your fave or if you get to try these out, and what you think. It’s a big boozy eco community, I tell ya….
