With years of mixology experience between them and time behind some of Charleston’s most celebrated bars, Van Dyck and Holland worked with Eleuteri to test hundreds of ingredients and flavor profiles before landing on a winning combination. The result was Charleston Mix’s original Bold & Spicy recipe. Made with a combination of premium ingredients that have been native to Lowcountry pantries for centuries, Charleston Mix is the Bloody Mary perfected. With the original recipe, Charleston Mix delivers the perfect Bold and Spicy base, while the Fresh & Veggie mix offers a milder, vegetable-based option.
