The first thing that struck me when I opened the box containing a sample of Organic Mixology’s Wild Cranberry & Blood Orange Cocktail was the beautiful bottle the prepared-to-pour cocktail comes in. It’s a bottle that you aren’t going to want to get rid of. You’re going to want to find a way to reuse or repurpose it.
Of course, what’s in the bottle is more important than the bottle itself. Created by Natlie Bovis, known as The Liquid Muse, the cocktails in the OM line are environmentally friendlier than many of the other ready to pour cocktails on the market.

The Wild Cranberry & Blood Orange Cocktail is a beautiful deep red color that’s sweetened with agave to offset the tartness of the cranberry. I’ve been pouring it into a cocktail shaker to chill it well and serving it into a martini glass to drink. It’s very different from my usual gin gimlet cocktail I tend to make myself, but I like it. I especially like that it’s prepared to pour. Mixing a cocktail isn’t difficult, but it can make a bit of a mess in the kitchen when you’re cutting fresh fruit and juicing citrus. OM cocktails are wonderfully mess-free and would be a great at a party to get the drinks flowing quickly.
OM’s other flavors include
- Dark Chocolate & Himalayan Sea Salt
- Meyer Lemon & Spicy Ginger
- Coconut Water & Lychee
