Knowledge is Classy

We think one of the best forms of hospitality is sharing information, especially when it helps people enjoy their lives and make good times great. We’re always psyched to empower people with cocktail knowledge and talk about what goes in our products, because we’re proud of how we make them, with quality ingredients and meticulous care.

Mixers

When you have that perfect cocktail at your favorite bar, it’s no secret what makes it the best: The highest quality ingredients and the know-how to combine them for the perfect balance of flavor. That’s where we started when creating our formulas to give you those quality building blocks in a ready-to-pour bottle. You get just what you want: real ingredients you can pronounce. Stress less, enjoy more!

Our Process

1. Great Ingredients

Just like a great cocktail, you want all your ingredients in front of you before you start mixing.

2. The Right Blend

We then combine all of our ingredients together in a kettle and they are mixed thoroughly.

Quality Ingredients, Food Safety

3. Keep’n It Safe

We kettle pasteurize at 180 F. This makes the product shelf stable without the use of chemicals.

Bloody Mary Cocktail Mixer

Nothing embodies our philosophy of bold flavor, real ingredients and hospitality more than our Bloody Mary.

We think it’s the best out-of-the-bottle mix you can get.

Moscow Mule Mix, 750ml. Moscow mule mixer, recipe, and ingredients

Moscow Mule Cocktail Mixer

The Moscow Mule has become a modern classic over the last half century. With its iconic copper mug and straightforward recipe, it’s not hard to understand why this has become a go-to. Since it’s made with lime juice, ginger puree and pure cane sugar, it just tastes better – with our without booze. Think of it as a ginger beer concentrate with lime already added. It’s no wonder this formula has quickly become a classic.

Margarita Mix, 750ml. Margarita mixer, recipe, and ingredients

Margarita Cocktail Mixer

It was at a bar in a small beach town in Mexico, far from mixology cocktails, that the inspiration for our formula was hatched over a margarita so bright, so fresh and so tart it was a taste revelation. Of course, it would have been impossible to have captured that experience in a bottle, as the limes were probably picked that morning, but the essence of our mix is the same. Bright and tart, with a touch of pure cane sugar, it shakes up a perfect cocktail, every time. With more lime juice and just the right amount of pure cane sugar, our Margarita mix raises the bar on what’s possible right out of the bottle.

Spicy Margarita Cocktail Mixer

With countless variations out there, Margaritas are more popular than ever, and it’s easy to understand why. One of the most often enjoyed riffs on the classic is to add some spice. So we did just that, starting with the same great formula as our classic Margarita. Tons of lime juice and just the right amount of pure cane sugar are spiked with a little red pepper extract for a touch of heat that’s at once subtle and sublime.

Syrups

Hella Cocktail Co. syrups are different from what you’re used to, and that’s just the way we like it. We wanted them to embody everything we stand for, so we made sure to use only the best botanicals, combined with just the right amount of cane sugar and citric acid for a real pop. Our 72-hour infusion of bark, fruit peel and whole spices results in not-too-sweet, perfectly bitter syrups that make an excellent dry soda or a light and refreshing cocktail. Our formulas – Tonic, Hibiscus and Cola Syrups – are unlike anything out there; they’re simple, but far from plain.

Our Process

1. Blending

Once our ingredients are sourced, we bag them and add to a tank with cold filtered water.

2. Extraction

Our 3 day cold extraction is unheard of for cocktail syrups. The result is bittersweet and very aromatic.

3. Filtration, Sweetening and Pasteurization

The cold brew is filtered, mixed with cane sugar, and cooked at 180F.

4. Bottling

The last step before it gets to you.

Tonic Cocktail Syrup, 12.5 oz. tonic mixer, recipe, and ingredient

Tonic Cocktail Syrup

Originally consumed for its antimalarial qualities, quinine has become a great complement to aromatic gin. Our tonic has a difference you can see, namely the amber color of the real cinchona bark from which we extract our quinine. The citrus peel, lemongrass, and aromatics make this balanced concentrate work perfectly with club soda. Gin is optional, but recommended.

Hibiscus Cocktail Syrup, 12.5 oz. hibiscus mixer, recipe, and ingredient

Hibiscus Cocktail Syrup

Our Hibiscus is a contemporary take on a classic Caribbean elixir called Sorel and is at home in any mixology cocktail bar. The formula is bright and tropical; in addition to Hibiscus flower we use lemon grass, tons of citrus peel, allspice clove and vanilla bean. The cinchona bark keeps it bitter enough to bring a refreshing counterpoint to your favorite club soda or spirit.

Cola Cocktail Syrup, 12.5 oz. cola mixer, recipe, and ingredients

Cola Cocktail Syrup

Before it became the most iconic beverage on the planet, cola was just a medicinal syrup. We’ll be honest – if you’re expecting vending machine pop, you’re in the wrong place. Our truly unique formula is more like the original, combining the best aspects of tonic and cola with aromatics like allspice, orange peel, cinchona bark and real cola nut powder. It’s what cola tasted like before it got drowned in sugar water.

Bitters

Simply put, bitters are the salt and pepper of cocktails. They create layers of flavor and structure that would not exist without them. A few dashes add flavor and character to your favorite cocktails or sparkling water and make great additions to your cooking adventures as well. Historically prescribed for their medicinal properties, it wasn’t until the early 19th century that these potent remedies became a fundamental ingredient in how to make cocktails. Bitters formulas can be highly coveted and well guarded by their keepers; but not by us, we’ve always been happy to share our formulas, minus a couple key ingredients.

Our Process

1. Blending

Once our ingredients are sourced, we bag them and add to a tank with neutral grain spirit.

2. Meticulous Observation

Over a 30-day period, the bitters are mixed and tasted regularly to make sure they’re just right.

3. Sweetening and Filtration

We add a touch of caramel syrup, to bring the slightest amount of sweet into the mix. Then we filter.

Aromatic Cocktail Bitters, 5 oz. Aromatic bitters, recipe, and ingredients

Aromatic

The story of bitters begins with Aromatic. What does that mean? Think of it as the original recipe – the quintessential spices of iconic American cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. We also like to call aromatic bitters the salt of the bar, the most in-demand flavor in classic cocktail recipes. Whether it’s at your favorite mixology cocktail bar or you’re learning how to make cocktails at home, this is the first bitters flavor called for.

Orange Cocktail Bitters, 5 oz. Orange bitters, recipe, and ingredients

Orange Bitters

If Aromatic is the salt of the bar, Orange is definitely the pepper. It’s the second most called for formula and a must for any bar or home making classic cocktails. Our goal was to capture the roundness of orange in a delightful, all-purpose bitters formula. We like to think it tastes like biting into a fresh orange. We use tons of orange peel and back it up with citrusy spices like coriander, cardamom and juniper berries. Our Orange bitters are also fantastic in club soda.

Smoked Chili Cocktail Bitters, 5 oz. Smoked Chili bitters, recipe, and ingredients

Smoked Chili Bitters

We searched far and wide for the right chili for our Smoked Chili bitters. Our patience paid off when we finally found Pasilia de Oaxaca, a long chili dried and smoked in Oaxaca, Mexico. It was love at first smell. Our smoked chili bitters have quickly become the rockstar of the family, earning their place in some of the world’s best mixology cocktails and with some of the best chefs.

Citrus Cocktail Bitters, 5 oz. Citrus bitters, recipe, and ingredients

Citrus Bitters

We like to call Citrus our full spectrum bitters. Rather than focus on one varietal, we decided on all the major citrus fruits: orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime. In addition, we blended a long list of exotic, savory botanicals like cardamom, caraway and coriander. The result is a fantastically full, bright and aromatic bitters recipe that tastes like summer in India.

Ginger Cocktail Bitters, 5 oz. Ginger bitters, recipe, and ingredients

Ginger Bitters

Ginger is one of our favorite ingredients. In food and drink, its versatility adds a kick to stirred, spirit-forward mixology cocktails as well as tart shaken ones. Our formula uses both dried and crystallized ginger and plenty of lemon peels. The result is a bitters with the vibrant kick you’d expect from ginger coupled with the brightness of lemon. The flavor is familiar, yet unlike anything you’ve ever tasted.
