Okay peeps, I was offered this opportunity to feature the Powell & Mahoney Craft Cocktail Mixers and boy, am I glad I did. This is the best pre-made cocktail mixer I have ever had.
Here’s my complaint about other pre-made mixes: They are too sweet.
The Powell & Mahoney Way
I have to say that is not the case with this glorious mixer. I find their products, especially this classic margarita mixer, to be delightfully balanced.
Here’s why I enjoy this product:
- Powell & Mahoney use only natural ingredients in their mixers, which makes you feel good about serving them to your family and friends
- Powell & Mahoney have won awards for outstanding quality
- They make their cocktail mixers in small batches
- They are the leading maker of natural cocktail mixers
- Their mixers are naturally gluten-free
- Their products are super easy to use
Another fun thing for me is knowing that Powell & Mahoney is headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, which is in my home state and not very far from me!
You can find Powell & Mahoney products in the following stores: Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, as well as in your local grocers and liquor stores.
These cocktail mixers also make popular presents, either in gift baskets or at Yankee Swaps!! Just saying!
On to the recipe!
The ingredients for the Marvelous Melon Margarita Cocktail and the Mixing
We have the delicious Powell & Mahoney classic margarita mixer, some tequila and melon liqueur!
Today, I’m making two cocktails instead of one, so I measure out more of everything than usual. I grab my cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. I add 4 ounces of tequila, 2 ounces of melon liqueur and 8 ounces of the classic margarita mixer.
Next, I cap the shaker, shake for 30 seconds and pour the contents into the two margarita glasses.
I have to add more ice to the glasses because my ice cube maker makes flimsy ice. Boo!
I also slice two lime wheels, cut slits into them and ease them onto the sides of the glasses.
Mmmm. Let’s look at another view of this marvelous melon margarita cocktail.
Okay. Now, let’s see what I did with these delicious margaritas!
I invited my sister, Robyn and our family friend Lisa over for appetizers, melon margaritas and pulled pork sandwiches because everything, and not just holidays, are #bettertogether!
That’s Christopher pouring the yummy melon margarita in Robyn’s glass. Notice her iron grip on the base of her glass? She knows that if I wasn’t behind the camera, I’d be running over there and snatching it out of her hand.
Here’s a GIF I made. Just imagine you can hear the clink!
Now, let’s see everyone enjoying themselves. They both love their melon margaritas, but I couldn’t pry Lisa’s lips off the glass, which means she really loves it.
Christopher and Robyn are sampling the chips and salsa and hummus!
Now, everyone is chowing down on the appetizers. Wait! Not everyone.
Why am I not partaking?
Oh yeah. It’s because I’m the photographer. Who’s brilliant idea was that?
Have I ever mentioned that Christopher is a clown? Not a real clown, that would be creepy, but he’s super funny.
He’s telling them a story.
And now for the punchline.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe. And please DO try Powell & Mahoney’s craft cocktail mixers! They truly are delicious!
