Funkin Cocktails is debuting its FunkinPRO Watermelon Cocktail Mix to the UK on-trade.
Tipped as a top flavour for this summer, the new watermelon mix offers a “sweet and refreshing flavour” and pairs well with a range of spirits, from vodka and gin to tequila and rum.
Ben Anderson, head of marketing for Funkin Cocktails, said: “The FunkinPRO Watermelon Cocktail Mix provides bartenders with a simple solution for a fruit that is typically hard to acquire and time consuming to juice.
“Our innovation team has worked hard to develop a premium quality cocktail base that truly captures the freshness of watermelon and will save bars time and money.
“This is the second FunkinPRO Cocktail Mix to hit the market, following the launch of FunkinPRO Sweet & Sour Cocktail Mix last year, and is a natural evolution in our product development and ambitions as a business to help bartenders across the UK create the best tasting, best looking and most profitable serves they can.”
Serves set to appear on cocktail menus this summer include the Watermelon Mojito, Watermelon Margarita and Watermelon Martini.
