Made With The Good Stuff
For us, the 'good stuff' is all natural flavors, colors, and sweeteners.
We started Miss Mary's Mix because we couldn't find mixers we wanted to drink.
They either tasted like corn syrup or cleaning fluid.
Miss Mary's Mix has been the fastest growing mixer for two years running. Guess we aren't the only people who enjoy a cocktail and care about what we put into their bodies!
WHAT THE HECK ARE CLEAN INGREDIENTS?
Look, we're not going to lie -
"Clean ingredients" sounded like marketing speak to us at first, too.
It just means that we choose quality ingredients over cheap ones, and that we consciously avoid ingredients that cause harm.
You should be able to enjoy a cocktail without feeling guilty about the ingredients.
In the U.S., 64% of adults say they try to choose foods made with clean ingredients.

Artificial Sweeteners Are Not The Answer
We all know now that sugar isn't good for us.
Unfortunately, artificial sugars aren't either. Sucralose is widely used in zero-sugar or keto-friendly foods, but has some scary side effects.
Studies have shown that it can affect how your body receives and transports sugar. It can make you crave more sugar and elevate your blood glucose levels.
SUCRALOSE CAN EVEN DAMAGE YOUR GUT BIOME. YIKES!
We don't use Sucralose, Aspartame, or Saccharin. Instead, we use natural sweeteners that are either low or no-calorie. Our favorites include monk fruit, which doesn't cause an insulin spike like sugar, but tastes just as indulgent, and organic stevia from the Stevia leaf. Stevia is 400 times sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.
SAY NO TO SHELLFISH (ALLERGIES)
If you have a shellfish allergy, you have probably read that you have to give up Bloody Marys.
That is just a crime against brunches everywhere.
Miss Mary's Morning Elixirs - Original, Bold & Spicy, Thick & Savory - have zero shellfish ingredients so you can sip all day if you so desire.
Goodbye Gluten and Other Junk
Wait, gluten in beverages? Yes, actually. The artificial flavoring added to a lot of packaged goods often includes gluten. Even in those who don't have Celiac disease, gluten can trigger an uncomfortable response. So, we just leave it out.
The biggest names in beverages and mixers use high-fructose corn syrup to sweeten their products. It's cheap but dirty. It is at least as bad for our health as sugar is, but some science indicates that it is actually worse. No, thank you. We'll pass.
