Salt has been a friend to tequila for a long time, but salt has become one of the ingredients more and more used in other cocktails than just your typical margaritas. Salt blocks bitterness in many alcoholic drinks, and it can enhance other flavors. Salt isn’t the only spice in your cupboard for trendy cocktails. Infusing alcohol with spices has been another trend popular already several years.
Now combine these two and get to know rokz, a company that makes cocktails even more interesting. They specialize in innovative products that include infusions, cocktail sugars and margarita salts for the craft cocktails. Learn more at rokz.com.
I’m the most interested in their infusion blends, they are spice blends that you add to your choice of alcohol, like rum, vodka or tequila. Let your choice of liquor infuse several days and then enjoy it in amazing cocktails. You can still use your favorite brand of beverages to create your cocktails to assure the quality of the cocktail you are making. I like this idea much more than buying ready made cocktail mixes.
It is now so easy to show off your mixology or bartender skills to your family and friends – even if you don’t really have the skills. With the help of rokz products, you can whip up delicious cocktails, beverages and craft cocktails that will be memorable.
For your fall parties, check out these cocktails below. The awesome rokz products are sold nationally including Whole Foods and Amazon.
