Bring big flavor to your cocktails with these fruit infused mix-ins

WATERMELON BRANDY
The Bradford Watermelon Company
Sumter, South Carolina

For nearly 200 years, the Bradford family has cultivated their namesake watermelon, prized for its tender rind. They partner with Six and Twenty Distillery to produce this brandy with a smooth, earthy sweetness.

PASSION FRUIT SYRUP
Liber & Co.
Austin, Texas

It’s tiki time. This sweet-tart syrup is a natural fit for rum-based cocktails. Hurricane, anyone?

BLUEBERRY VANILLA SODA
Cannonborough Beverage Co.
North Charleston, South Carolina

Bright blueberries meet floral vanilla in this soda that plays well with a range of clear spirits.

PONCHATOULA POP ROUGE
Swamp Pop
Lafayette, Louisiana

The pride of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, is its succulent strawberries. This soda tastes like fresh ones tossed in sugar.

PEACH VODKA
Fruitland Augusta
Augusta, Georgia

Named for 1800s-era Fruitland Nurseries (now the site of Augusta National Golf Club), this vodka is flavored simply with Georgia peaches and cane sugar.
