I'm visiting red earth land (aka Oklahoma) for a wedding, so I've been keeping offline as much as possible so that I could give my full attention to my family and friends in this area. I got on the email box today (1000 or so new=a lot of cool stuff going on plus a lot to look over) and saw this awesomeness. Yeah, the Fashion Week is on for sure, and fashion+organic drinks = love from Julian
Modmix, the First USDA Certified Organic Cocktail Mixer,
Makes Its Oregon Debut at PDX Fashion Week
Step Up to the Fashion Bar: Modmix Brings Luxury, Style and Sophisticated Taste
to the Classic Cocktail. Cocktail hour. Organically remixed.
PORTLAND, Oct. 18, 2007 — Inspired by three women and their love of organic living, clean design, and a finely crafted cocktail, Modmix, the first USDA certified organic cocktail mixer, makes its Oregon debut during Portland's 4th Annual PDX Fashion Week October 19-24. Designers, models and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“fashionistas' can unwind after a long day on the catwalk with a stylish Modmix cocktail available at the main and VIP bars during PDX Fashion Week.
Exclusive to the PDX Fashion Show, Modmix has created two signature drinks to celebrate the event entitled the "Fashionista Margarita" and the "Couture Mojito." Both specialty cocktails embody the spirit of Portland with the style of the show and can best be described as Portland perfection with a twist!
According to a 2007 Food and Beverage Trend Report, the demand for organic foods grew 29% from 2006. Answering this organic demand, Modmix created five all organic gourmet recipes that provide a modern makeover to classic cocktails and include:
Citrus Margarita (organic limes, a bloom of fragrant orange), Lavender Lemon Drop (lemon juice mingles with fresh lavender water), Mojito (freshest spearmint, unrefined cane sugar and the juiciest limes), Pomegranate Cosmopolitan (a ruby-red seduction), and the French Martini (a 1920's Paris classic cocktail of organic pineapple juice and raspberry with a hint of lemon). The French Martini's glamour has been organically remixed and should not be missed at the PDX Fashion Show. Viva le revolution!
"In the spirit of Portland's eco-friendliness, modern art, design, and urban style, we chose the PDX Fashion Show as our Modmix Oregon debut," said Gretchen Nix, Modmix Beverages co-founder. "Two of our founders live in Portland and our products are a natural fit with the hip, fashionable and organic culture of the city."
AC Nielsen also reported strong growth in the spirits category, driven by a 6% increase in premium and 12% in ultra premium spirits versus a year ago. Though premium spirits are at a record high, there are few truly high-end cocktail mixers on the market and nothing organic, unless created from scratch. Modmix meets this premium spirits trend: with its pure organic ingredients, it offers a modern twist to today's quality cocktail. Modmix was designed to blend perfectly with top shelf spirits, champagne or sparkling wine and is also great as a refreshing non-alcoholic drink when mixed with sparkling water.
During Portland's PDX Fashion Week, Modmix samples will be available at the Modmix booth with sparkling water in the PFW Plaza, as well as the main and VIP bars.
Oregonians will be able to purchase Modmix in October in all QFC, New Seasons and Lamb's Market stores as well as through select web retailers, Bevmo.com & BTCelements.com. For a complete national retail listing and more information, log onto www.modmixbeverages.com.
