When faced with a long weekend of entertaining, ambitious hosts and hostesses can breathe a collective sigh of relief, thanks to the innovators at Stirrings Mixers. The brand’s ever-evolving line of delicious, sophisticated cocktail mixers makes short work of the classics, nouveau specialties and signature cocktails. From peach bellinis to pomegranate martinis, a range of popular drinks get a leg-up from the seasonally inspired mixers. Meanwhile, there’s no need to feel guilty about not making your own, since Stirrings uses only natural ingredients—real fruit juice and cane sugar—and no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. The Simple Spiced Apple mixer is made from real apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and cane sugar, and every bottle of Stirrings’ cosmo mix contains the juice of more than 340 ripe cranberries. Each $9, 32-ounce bottle makes about 11 cocktails, which helps stretch that Fourth of July party budget even further. stirrings.com.
