Distinct Drinks for Mother's Day

In case you're unaware - and if you are you're in so much trouble - this Sunday is Mother's Day. Standard operating procedure for Mother's Day promotions has been to uncork some bubbly and call it a day. Well, we think a lot of the mothers out there would appreciate something beyond a glass of Champagne, Prosecco or American sparkling this year.

Joia isn't just another sparkling water company. Joia combines just the right amount of natural fruit juices with clean sweeteners, herbs, spices and sparkling water to create all-natural, non-GMO, sodium-, caffeine- and gluten-free soda. These aren't your standard sodas, either. The team at Joia, complete with a mixologist, creates sodas with flavors such as Blackberry, Pomegranate & Nutmeg and Grapefruit, Chamomile & Cardamom. Joia thinks you should "Drink Distinct," and we think you should add Joia to your ingredient mix.

Consider the fact that Mother's Day tends to be a high-volume holiday, particularly with cool moms who more than deserve a drink or two. Your bartenders need to build cocktails and get them served quickly. That's where Joia comes in: combine the ingredients, serve with Joia, serve. And with bases of vodka, tequila or rum, these Mother's Day cocktails are anything but the standard. Orders get filled quickly, guests are happy and get the awesome experience they're looking for, you make more money.
