What are Infused Cocktails Packets?
Infused cocktail mixing packets contain a pre-measured combination of ingredients designed to be added to spirits, mixers, and other liquids to create a specific cocktail. The packs typically include a variety of natural ingredients such as herbs, fruits, spices, and botanicals that are infused with flavor and aroma.
These packets make cocktail mixing easier and more convenient for people who enjoy making cocktails at home but may not have the time or expertise to source and prepare all the necessary ingredients. With infused cocktail mixing packets, all the ingredients are already pre-measured and ready to use, eliminating the need for extensive preparation and ensuring consistent results.
Infused cocktail mixing packets can be used to make a wide variety of cocktails, including classics like the Old Fashioned, Negroni, and Manhattan, as well as more modern creations. They are typically sold in packs containing multiple servings. They can be easily stored in a pantry or cupboard until needed.
Overall, infused cocktail mixing packets can be a convenient and cost-effective way to enjoy high-quality cocktails at home without requiring extensive preparation or specialized equipment.
