Spruce Up Your At-Home Cocktail Hour With Handmade Mixers From Grocery

photo by M. McClellan

If you’ve ever eaten at 13th Street’s Lolita, you’ve had the opportunity to try Chef Marcie Turney’s line of handmade fruit mixers (and if you haven’t been there, check it out. How could you not like a place that invites you to bring your own tequila?). Made of freshly squeezed juices, they are dreamy with a bit of booze or even just a splash of sparkling water (perfect for the preggos and teetotalers alike).

These small batch mixers have proven to be so popular that Chef Turney is now bottling them for sale at Grocery, the market she runs with partner Valerie Safran. Available in an array of flavors including lemon-lime, black cherry, mango-cardamom, blood orange, pomegranate-ginger and watermelon, they come frozen and cost $12 for a quart. Instructions for recommended use come with every bottle.

101 S. 13th Street
