Mixology Pro by Master of Mixes gives you all the inspiration, ingredients and tricks you need to take your at-home cocktail to the next level. Mixology guru and Director of Beverage Applications Dean Serneels transforms these store-bought mixers into creative cocktail designs. With over 45 flavors, there are endless possibilities with Master of Mixes’ one-step mixers. When you’re looking to elevate your spirits further, Dean recommends putting a little time into a cocktail that looks good, too—think glassware and seasoned rims!
“Funneling margaritas into mini milk bottles with decorative straws or pouring a Freshly Minted cocktail in a mason jar make the drinking experience unique,” explains Dean. “When it comes to the drink rim, I like to mix it up with unique sweet and salty flavors. You can even rim your glass with a dusting of cocoa powder for your next Martini!”
