Hot Ways to Mix It Up for Memorial Day: Sip on Paleta Potables, Healthy Mixes with FLAVOR!
It’s a holiday weekend and what’s a girl – or a guy- to do when faced with having friends over for a casual party? How about if you want a special treat just for you? Must you buy several different kinds of mixes that may take forever to use? What if you want something flavorful but also healthy? Is that even possible to find? It is now courtesy of Paleta.
Paleta shouldn’t be anything new to those who read this blog– particularly if you are based in California and major metro areas in Arizona, Nevada and up Pacific Coast (Oregon + Washington). The “farm to table” meal-delivery system has been featured here many times for that amazingly tasty food delivery that gives me so much food that I can’t finish it all in one day. In the last couple of years, Boyer launched “Pressed”, Juices that were perfect for sipping as well as “detoxing” for a few days to give your system a chance to rest but still be nourishing and health. Never a fan of detoxes, I found Paleta’s PRESSED juices to be worlds apart from other detoxes and these were so fun to drink that it was never a deprivation to detox. But that’s not the latest innovation from Chef Kelly Boyar, the founder of Paleta!
The latest innovation from Chef Kelly is Pressed POTABLES— pressed juices made into cocktail mixes or blends for those who want the party experience sans alcohol!
“Based on the success and popularity of PRESSED, our organic cold-pressed juice detox programs, we naturally wanted to introduce a healthier way for us grown-ups to enjoy our cocktails,” says PALETA Founder & Executive Chef, Kelly Boyer. “Gone are the days of old-school calorie laden, sugary and syrupy cocktail mixers which only serve to contribute to that sometimes challenging ‘Morning After’,” adds Boyer. “You’ll pleasure your palate and quench your thirst while the elixirs leave you feeling refreshed and hydrated because they are chock full of nutrients. Each POTABLE label provides creative recipes for liquor pairings… all you have to do is add the alcohol! Of course, for sinless sipping… simply enjoy over ice or with a splash of soda water. Cheers!”
PALETA PRESSED POTABLES currently offer 6 delicious flavors packaged in BPA-free 1 liter bottles with Until then, you can enjoy the following luscious libations delivered to your doorstep and soon to be found in a cocktail lounge or liquor store near you!
