Mix It Up: Citrus Sweet Tea 5 Ways

Updated: Jul 31

At-home cocktails far too often fall into three main categories: the lackluster 'vodka-soda-splash- cran', confusing craft-cocktails that call for an assortment of random (sometimes expensive!) ingredients, or the dreaded single use store-bought cocktail mixer.


At Owl's Brew, we believe that there should be an easier way to make a variety of cocktails, easily. Each of our tea-based cocktail-mixers are versatile, and can be made into a wide assortment of cocktails and mocktails, depending on your mood, preferences or occasion.


In each 'Mix It Up!', we feature one of our mixers 5 different ways. Break out your inner-bartender! Mix and match, have a friendly competition or taste test, but most importantly, have fun and enjoy.
