Drink of the Week: Ballast Point Artisanal Cocktails

Ballast Point Artisanal Cocktail Cans

As Spring approaches I want to spend more time outside with a delicious drink! If you are a brave explorer who enjoys testing the fabulous flavors of the global culture, then join us on this weekly exploration. These posts will cover everything from the latest cocktail craze to the wonderful world of wine.

Chad the Tie Guy's Drink of the Week: We want to spend more time outside at picnic spots and less time making craft cocktails. That definitely does not mean we want to resort to the overly sweet and artificially flavored premade cocktails that have been available in stores for years. Now with the craft cocktail movement we are seeing more premade cocktails with natural ingredients that we would use to make cocktails at home. These spirits are of high quality spirits and no weird chemical preservatives. 
These cans contain nothing but the best spirits made from scratch at Ballast Points distillery in San Diego, California and mixed with their made on premise mixers (bloody mary mix and homemade sodas). A great way to drink easily without having to make and transport everything to your next awesome picnic!

Like the venomous namesake fish this Fugu Bloody Mary packs a sting. We’ve combined our signature Fugu Vodka with our award-winning Bloody Mary mix, featuring ripe tomatoes, exotic spices and a heavy dose of pepper, to make a spicy cocktail that is dangerously drinkable.
