I got sent five of their purees to try : Raspberry, Mango, Mojito, Pina Colada and the Pornstar Martini.
With the raspberry and the mango purees I experimented (I’m no bartender or mixologist).
To the raspberry puree I added a splash of gin and topped it with some Prosecco - made a really light fruity bubbly Summer cocktail and with the mango, I added this to some coconut ice-cream then added some rum - a sort of Rum Mango Coconut Milkshake. Both delicious although I am sure I never done them justice.
I tried out the Mojito, adding rum to this mix and an extra squeeze of lime - I like the tang!
Really superb mixers and even better when they are ice cold. They pour easily and easy to store too AND they make great smoothies!
These are mostly aimed at bar trade and if you require any further information email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also purchase these online from ebay and TheDrinksShop.
Thanks to Island Oasis for sending me samples of their cocktail purees and mixers to try.
