Here’s a new take on cocktails for spring, summer and beyond. If you’re like the millions of Americans who insist on a “clean” and healthy diet, you’ll want your refreshment to be simple, organic, and free of ingredients you can’t pronounce. But if you’d like to kick the pleasure up another a notch or two, Beetology has the answer.
Introducing Beetology cocktails and mocktails, starring the latest trend in superfoods: the sweet, wholesome, and insanely delicious beet. For a mind-blowing new way to toast spring, summer or any occasion, just start with Beetology’s 100% natural craft beverage blends.
Beetology harvests and cold-presses the best-tasting organic beets from around the world, blends them with just a handful of good-for-you products like fruit, veggies, and ginger, and sends them straight to the grocer’s refrigerator in convenient, grab-and-go bottles.
Here are some fun ways to enjoy each of Beetology’s 5 different hand-crafted blends. (Recipes follow.) Be sure to have plenty of ice on hand for maximum refreshment.
- Beet + Lemon + Ginger = Beetology Zinger
- Beet + Veggie = Beety Bloody Mary
- Beet + Tropical Fruit = Tropical Beet-a-Colada
- Beet + Berry = Berry Beet-a-Rita
- Beet + Cherry = Bourbon Beet-It
For mocktails, just leave out the alcohol and add a spritz of seltzer or mix with your favorite non-alcoholic sparkling cider. But don’t stop there – the combination of concoctions is limited only by the mixologist’s imagination. It’s your party, create your cooler as you like!
Beetology coolers are so crisp and satisfying, you might forget they’re good for you. Beets are bursting with essential nutrients that have been linked to improved blood pressure, energy levels, liver function, eye health, younger-looking skin, and even brain function. Best of all, you can feel good about serving Beetology. Every variety is 100% non-GMO, U.S.D.A. Certified Organic, and Certified Fair Trade. They are non-soy, non-dairy, and certified OU kosher, with no preservatives, additives, artificial colors, or flavors.
Beetology is produced by Kayco, one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of kosher food products. “Beets are the new pomegranate,” said Charles Herzog, Chief Beetologist and VP of New Business Development at Kayco. “Chefs, foodies, health-conscious folks, and even athletes have been tapping into the versatile beet in creative new ways. We can’t wait to see the exciting new coolers our consumers come up with Beetology as their inspiration.”
