Better Fruit For Better Drinks
Consistency is king, or so they say. In an industry where we demand consistency from our spirits and our bartenders, our customers expect it in our service and the drinks we make - why do we settle for inconsistent fruit?
Enter IO Premium, a range of high fruit content purees and cocktail bases developed for professional bartenders. The range includes seven fruit flavours (Including great lemon and lime juices) which range from 90 to 100% fruit content as well as four classic cocktail mixes – Pina colada, Mojito, Pornstar Martini and Strawberry Daiquiri.
No longer do you have to worry about half of your fruit order being mouldy or struggling to juice dry lemons, as the fruit purees give you real fruit, pre-juiced at the twist of a cap. IO Premium comes in recyclable tetra-paks, which are a godsend and can be stored at room temp. Much easier to use than traditional pouches as they don’t flop when you try to pour them with one hand - they’re also stackable for when you need to pack every last bit of stock onto your bar for a busy service.
The cocktail mixes have been created to take the time and effort out of your highest volume cocktails, allowing you and your team to concentrate on the really special drinks that make you and your bar stand out from the crowd, giving you more time to set things on fire or make outrageous garnishes without worrying about your 100th Mojito of the night.
The range has got loads of versatility too, the mango flavour for example, not only makes a killer mango Margarita but works just as well as part of a smoothie or mixed with cloudy apple for a soft lunchtime option.
There’s also tons of scope for using the range in combination, white peach and lemon is the base for an epic peach Collins and I have no guilt in admitting it’s a very good version of one of my all-time favourite drinks. With that in mind, it’s nearly 5, people are thirsty and the drinks won’t shake themselves.
