Two of my favorite people with the reputation of \”hostess with the mostest\” threw a lovely cocktail party complete with cocktails made with A.K.A. Mixology and food blogger friends provided delightful bites. Through the common love of delicious food I met Alicia Kim, founder of A.K.A. Mixology and Anita Cheung of Fearless Captivations about 6 or 7 years ago. Visiting Alicia\’s home always means great company and refreshing craft cocktails. Her passion for both science (she is a former science teacher) and quality cocktails led her to opening her own company, A.K.A. Mixology. As a testament to the quality of her home made clarified juices, two of the three winning cocktails at the Official Drink of Austin last year used A.K.A. Mixology products. So what makes A.K.A. Mixology different than other elixirs? Alicia uses a centrifuge which produces a nearly crystal clear juice. Per their website \”Our clarifying technique produces a clear, almost colorless fresh juice. We hand juice the citrus to order. Clarified juices are sold in convenient 750mL screw cap bottles with no added sweeteners or preservatives…what Mother Nature intended.\” I love using the juices for stunning mimosas and gorgeous bloody Marys.
