Mixing It Up
Personalized craft cocktail mixers add a festive kick to wedding celebrations
The award-winning, New Orleans-based El Guapo Bitters entered the cocktail scene in 2014 with its line of bitters, syrups and mixers. The company says on its website that each product is made with locally-sourced ingredients traceable to the farm level or third party certified organic, as well as non-GMO, gluten free and vegetarian. For couples, the products offer an opportunity to personal a festive, locally-made, bachelorette or bachelor celebration kickoff gift, welcome bag item or wedding favor.
The individual craft drink mixers are packaged in two-ounce bottles and come in five different flavors, with Hurricane and Bloody Mary being the most popular. The bottles are adorned with customizable labels. There are several ready-made templates to choose from, but couples can also send in monograms or artwork, as well as wedding colors and themes for a label that matches the wedding aesthetic and vibe.

On its website, El Guapo announced that it is converting two trucks or vans into mobile cocktail bars. Look for more information about these additions in a future “Let Them Eat Cake” post.
