Cocktail

To celebrate the refreshing new boutique sodas (pops, if you prefer) that we’re carrying at selected Nordstrom stores, we’re experimenting by adding our favorite adult ingredients (clear, brown or bubbly) to these distinct flavors.

When we heard there was a fluorescent blue soda made by Jeff’s brother, we knew we had a winner on our hands. Who is Jeff or his brother? No clue, but he put his name on it—or his sibling’s—so it had to be good.

You’d expect peach soda to be pink, but Redondo Peach shatters all the norms. And so will this delectable mojito that pairs perfectly with an endless supply of sun and sand—even if the beach is really just a figment of your imagination. Our concoction is like drinking in the ocean air on a coast lined with peach trees, coconut groves and blueberry bushes. So soak up the deep blue with a little rum for a vicarious vacation that’ll be peachy.

Next in our series is a beverage with an Australian twist: the Kanga Mule uses Buderim Ginger Brew plus some fruit accoutrements for a refreshing drink to nurse while you’re sitting Outback.

Variations of the classic mule aren’t hard to come by, but the Aussie-style ginger brew from Buderim makes this a cocktail with an exotic kick. The typical ginger “beer” has a certain amount of spice that we’ve all come to expect, but Buderim’s has a sweet and tangy balance that makes it one of the smoothest we’ve tasted. Drawing out the sweet with tones of blackcurrant, lemon and berries makes this the one your mates will remember.
