Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, Nekter Juice Bar is releasing cold-pressed juice mixers that make some pretty great DIY cocktails. The Nekter on the Rocks collection is an appealing alternative to the syrupy, processed mixers that pervade the marketplace.
The three flavors include Beach Berries with strawberries, blackberries, lemon, agave, and basil; SoCal Margarita with lemons, limes, orange, and agave; and Arizona Sunset with grapefruit, orange, blood orange, peach, and agave. Each juice can be mixed with a variety of spirits or sparkling wine (although they certainly scream for tequila), and sound rather refreshing for a hot day. Better yet, each serving has less than 80 calories - only the more reason to spike it with an overly generous pour.
Nekter on the Rocks is available in all Nekter locations, including Pasadena, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Manhattan Beach, and Westwood.
