Promising review: “I did not expect to be blown away by canned mixers, yet here I am! Avec’s drinks taste so fresh, it’s hard NOT to make that ‘ahhhh’ sound you do after you have a tasty beverage after every single sip. Their flavors are classic, but all have a fun, modern twist. For example, I expected their ‘Ginger’ flavor to remind me of normal ginger beer, but inspired by Jamaican Ginger Beer, they combined ginger with pineapple juice, lime, and all-spice to make a perfect drink that blows run of the mill, sickly sweet, bottled ginger beer out of the water.
I tried The Sampler and loved every single flavor. Avec is lightly carbonated, lightly sweet, and every flavor truly tastes so thoughtful. I actually don’t drink anymore, but I consider myself a nonalcoholic cocktail connoisseur, and combining Avec with my favorite NA spirits like Monday gin, Ritual tequila, or any Lyre’s flavor has never NOT been a home run. I haven’t always been alcohol-free though, so I can also confidently say these would make equally incredible mixers for actual spirits. If you’re looking to up your at-home cocktail game without busting out the juicer and making a ton of extra work for yourself, Avec is for you.” —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Editor
