Tidal Craft Ice
From shrubs to tinctures, muddled basil to egg white foam, the nation’s cocktail revolution is in full swing -- and we’ll drink to that. A new generation of cocktail connoisseurs has emerged, replacing faux-colored, high-fructose-corn-syrup mixers with fresh ingredients that have been stirred, shaken and strained to perfection. This fall, as our region’s thirst for craft drinks continues to rise, another hand-crafted product will make its debut on the market.
From the makers of Bold City Pops in Jacksonville comes Tidal Craft Ice, a new farm- to-freezer concept that perhaps most closely resembles a cocktail cube. While often overlooked for its usefulness, the farm-to-freezer process is a clever natural alternative to preservatives in products like mixers. It allows fruits and vegetables to be picked at their peak, preserving both their flavor and nutritional value, while also provid- ing farmers an additional way to make use of surplus harvests during high-yield times of the year.
With locally sourced flavors like Mint Mojito, Blueberry Lemonade, Peach Bellini and Citra Milano (a delicious, herby blend of rosemary, thyme and Florida citrus), Tidal Craft Ice is sure to delight your swilling sensibilities, if cool and fruity is your thing. Simply drop a cube into a glass, add spirits and drink. Indeed, it’s just that easy.
While it’s not a craft cocktail, per se, it’s a craft cocktail cube for certain, and if you want a mixer that keeps well without ingredients you can’t pronounce, this may just be your new quick fix for mix.
