Owl's Brew "Pink & Black" Tea Crafted for Cocktails
- THE STORY
Shake it up.
Owl's Brew combines all natural, freshly brewed whole leaf teas with whole spices, fruits and herbs, then adds a touch of agave for sweetness. The result is a ready-to-pour artisanal cocktail mixer just waiting to be kissed by a spirit. With no artificial flavors, no concentrates, and 1/3 the calories of other cocktail compounds, this is no ordinary mixer.
Owl's Brew Pink & Black is a blend of darjeeling, hibiscus, lemon peel, strawberry and agave. Hand-crafted in small batches, it is ready to add bourbon, whiskey, tequila, or vodka. Simply mix 2 parts brew with 1 part booze over ice. Stir or shake.
Two years ago, Maria Littlefield and Jennie Ripps left their jobs in marketing to start a company, and they began with a vision of making tea cocktails. The duo began a tea cocktail lab a floor above their marketing firm to get their idea got off the ground, and eventually, an idea for a tea cocktail mixer was born.
Today, the partners have a successful line devoted to that concept called Owl's Brew, good for crafting complex and inventive cocktails that happen to contain the benefits of tea, including vitamins and antioxidants.
Both Maria and Jennie loved to entertain at home, but were tired of what they were drinking. Both loved tea. So they began to experiment. Instead of cranberry juice with vodka, they tried a cranberry tisane. In place of vermouth in a Manhattan, they used freshly-brewed rooibos. The result was a new, modern flavor profile, and a beverage with less calories and sugar that other cocktails.
Owl's Brew is all about knowing what you drink. It's convenient, yes, but also a healthier way to enjoy a cocktail - each drink provides 40% of your daily vitamin C.
