Jen Ross and Cristina Ros Blankfein were sick of vodka sodas. It can be such a struggle working in a major city and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially when most work-related social events involve “drinks?” Even if you’re not a drinker, sipping on plain seltzer or (gasp!) water, can be so boring. So the two Harvard Business School goers put their heads (and glasses?) together and came up with Be Mixed, a no sugar, no calorie mixer in three flavor choices to fit every drink palette.
You might wonder what exactly gives Be Mixed its sweetness, and the answer is a mix of monkfruit (full of antioxidants and vitamins), and stevia extract. That’s it. No artificial ingredients, just flavor, color, and deliciousness. If you don’t feel like mixing a full-on cocktail (not everyone is into muddling), it’s a simple mix of Be Mixed, the alcohol of your choice, ice, and you’re done! Jen even stashes their individual-sized bottles in her purse for impromptu refreshment. And as a Type 1 diabetic, Be Mixed has been an extra lifesaver for her because she never feels like she has to sacrifice taste for her health.
Why start caring about wellness in January when you can get a jumpstart before the holidays without saying no to a delicious drink? The team over at Be Mixed shared their three favorite cocktails for holiday parties with us.
Be Mixed – the perfect holiday accessory for family questions about your complicated relationship status, a long train ride upstate, a gift for literally anyone you like, or that dude in accounting who won’t stop telling you about his band at the office party. Drink up!
