Double Dutch, the premium tonic and mixer brand specialising in tonics and mixers, has expanded its portfolio with the arrival of its first Cocktail Soda range, launching with the Bloody Mary Soda and the Cucumber Margarita Soda with chilli.
Created using the process of molecular gastronomy, Double Dutch has taken the ingredients from classic cocktails to develop a range of longer, lighter drinks in for the form of cocktail sodas. The two new products can be added to spirits to create quick, flavourful cocktails, or be drank solo as a non-alcoholic alternative.
The Bloody Mary Soda combines the rich tomato taste of the classic cocktail with basil, cucumber, pepper and chilli, to create a full of flavour, spicy and herbaceous drink. Topped with a hint of brandy vinegar for the perfect acidic finish, this soda pairs perfectly with vodka simply poured over ice.
The Cucumber Margarita Soda with chilli incorporates flavours of cucumber, Persian lime – providing a blend of lime and lemon characteristics – bell pepper for a sweeter and earthier taste, and chilli for a spicy kick. This innovative soda is best enjoyed when combined with tequila, ice, and served in a salt-rimmed martini glass.
Co-founder of Double Dutch Drinks, Raissa de Haas says: “We are proud to announce the launch of our brand-new Cocktail Soda range, which provides yet another option for busy bartenders, hospitality groups, consumers and cocktail-enthusiasts to make creative drinks easily and consistently while not compromising on flavour. Both the Bloody Mary Soda and the Cucumber Margarita Soda with chilli are an extension of our ethos to elevate spirits rather than mask them, and are a lighter, flavoursome addition to the range”.
The two new sodas, like the rest of the collection, are low in calories, at under 20 calories per 100ml, and vegan-friendly, free from preservatives and artificial ingredients. Buy them from the Double Dutch webstore and Amazon from the 5th October for £3.75 per four pack. The launch of the Cocktail Sodas ties in with a revised colourful rebrand of the Double Dutch range of tonics and mixers.
