Stolen Fruit introduced a line of wine-inspired cocktail and mocktail mixers. Using the fresh-pressed juice of wine grapes dropped during thinning (verjus) and dried wine grape skins, the company takes what is discarded in the winemaking process to create the backbone for each mixer, it says. Concentrated natural juice from specific grape varietals is then blended in along with fruits and botanicals, it adds. The mixers are designed to be combined with sparkling water, sparkling wines or spirits. Stolen Fruit Mixers are available in five flavors: Lemongrass Ginger Sauvignon Blanc, Jasmine Juniper Viognier, Hibiscus Grenache, Blood Orange Muscat and Fig Grains of Paradise Zin. Packaged in 16-ounce bottles, the mixers can be purchased online for $18.
