Kiss Mix Cocktails In a Can are Great Tasting and ‘Good to Go’
’Some things start with a Kiss’! High Quality ‘Ready to Drink’ (RTD) Cocktails are Real Spirited and Ready for Summer
Now we are really ready for summer.
With the recent US release of the first four flavors of the outstanding Kiss Mix there is finally a ‘real spirit’ alternative to the wine based or flavored beers and malts that dominate the RTD category.
Kiss Mix is the full strength cocktail line that is based in the United Kingdom that is revolutionary drinking around the world with a package and product that was created to fit a premium cocktail taste profile in attractive, eye appealing recyclable aluminum cans that are perfect for storing on shelves, packing in coolers and carrying to picnics, beaches, tailgate parties and camping trips.
The line is ready to expand but these classic drinks are delicious and each have a ‘twist’ in recipe and taste that is sure to be a pleasant upgrade to any other RTD. Kiss Mix won’t be available in beer and wine bars as each blend is equivalent to a traditional highball with 1.25 ounce liquor pour. That is, Kiss Mix cocktails are 8% of real vodka…and real gin.

Kiss Mix Gin & Tonic is the UK’s best selling favorite and its easy to see why. The flavor of quality gin is evident but so is the better quality of the tonic that is usually found on a bar’s soda gun. The Kiss Mix Screwdriver has a twist of Passion Fruit and is made with real Florida Orange Juice and The Kiss Mix Lemon Drop has great taste and balance with the added twist of fresh lime juice. Even the Kiss Mix Cosmopolitan is a better flavor blend with an added twist of Pomegranate.
Jon Edwards, the Kiss Mix US Brand Development Manager began the launch in South Florida and is encouraged by the versatility of the brand as well as the quality. “the difference is that Kiss Mix establishes quality in taste and image. There was no compromise to fit a price point”.
There is no doubt that Kiss Mix clearly appears to be the perfect off-premise, and ‘on-the-go’ retail alternative that will make sense on a refrigerator shelf and in any cooler this summer, but the on-premise relevance takes on even more dimension.
“It’s perfect for ease and quality of cocktail service. It’s ideal for mini-bars, pool bars and beach bars and we have hotels and time share resorts that have great success with all the existing flavors”, added Edwards. Another bonus for on-premise operators will be the easy inventory, and security and the opportunity to offer a cocktail alternative in ‘beer tubs’ eliminating the need for a skilled bartender beyond age verification of verifying age.
Kiss Mix currently is shipping to all four corners of the globe, with new flavors like the Kiss Mix Margarita that should be available mid-summer and shipped to the US in time for Labor Day.
“We look forward to providing new options for creative on-premise retailers, and many are planning ahead”, noted Edwards, who is based in South Florida and covering all of Florida for the initial launch. “You’ll see Kiss Mix make it to many Summer Festivals, Concerts and events over the next several weeks and months”.
Because it’s a real spirit cocktail don’t expect Kiss Mix to show up in grocery and convenient stores next to Mike’s Hard Lemonade (Beer) or the Hard Ciders that are really aren’t that hard. In fact, you’ll find it first in independent liquor stores as the demand for Kiss Mix takes hold.
Distributed in Florida by Southern Wine & Spirits, the quality of Kiss Mix is a pleasant surprise and upgrade to a category that has been void of spirits even though heritage spirit brand names like Bacardi and Smirnoff have been selling malt RTD beverages not rum or vodka.
It is suggested on each can, and Kiss Mix premium RTD cocktails were designed to “invert gently over ice’ just as you would typically drink mixed drinks like screwdrivers,and gin & tonics. The Kiss Mix Lemon Drop with change your mind about country time or you’ll old friend Mike and the Kiss Mix Cosmo with just the right twist of pomegranate may change the future of the vodka and cranberry.
It’s time to get summer started and you might find that Kiss Mix is the perfect icebreaker…after all, “some things start with a kiss”.
