Stolen Fruit – Mixers for the Cocktail Connoisseur







Let’s chat today about a little bit of magic known as “verjus”.  You know…  that grape juice stuff...!
Well, let me be more enlightening…

Derived from the French term vert jus (green juice), verjus is a grape juice processed from green grapes before they ripen or ferment.  The sour juice is high in acidity and low in sugars, and can easily be combined with herbs and spices.  Over time it has been added to various sauces, condiments or salad dressings, but its use is not as prevalent as once was.
Now let’s wander off into the land of mixology, and talk about craft cocktails. 

The creative minds at Stolen Fruit, residing in Healdsburg, California, bring us an update on the use of verjus with a quintet of cocktail mixers that will take your adult beverages to another level.  Not only will your palate be impressed, but the taste buds of your friends, family, and any local glitterati will swoon as well…!
The current lineup consists of Jasmine Juniper Viognier, Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc, Blood Orange Muscat, Hibiscus Grenache and lastly the ever-popular Fig Grains of Paradise Zin.  The Stolen Fruit website provides recipes for cocktails, mocktails and food pairings that are sure to inspire.

Does a Jasmine and Juniper Martini float your boat?  How ‘bout a Hibiscus Margarita?

Cheers!
