#FirstImpression Of Jimmy’s Cocktails
1. Price and packaging
All the flavors of the Jimmy’s Cocktails are priced at Rs 99/- for a 250 ml bottle. They come in brightly colored glass bottles. You would need an opener to open the bottles, it is not an easy open cap.
2. How we tasted
We tried all the cocktail mixers, chilled, as it is or with a few ice cubes. We did not add alcohol for the review as we wanted to check for their original flavors and sweetness levels. We also kept in mind that there is a large section of our audience who would like to use these as mocktails as well.
3. Cosmopolitan Cocktail Mixer
Calories – 52 kcal for 100 ml.
What is a Cosmopolitan? Often called a ‘girly’ drink, Cosmopolitan or cosmo is a vodka-based cocktail that is popular worldwide. The ingredients used to make a traditional cosmopolitan include vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and freshly squeezed lime juice.

Appearance and aroma – The cocktail mix’s color is like entering a Barbie obsessed, 5-year-old girl’s bedroom. The Jimmy’s Cocktails – Cosmopolitan Cocktail Mixer comes in a pale and pop pink colored bottle. The beverage has a beautiful pink color and the aroma of cranberries is dominant.
Flavor notes – Upon tasting, the first thing that is really highlighted is the cranberry taste. The bitterness from the triple sec and the citrusy notes of lemon juice is mildly present. This would prove to be a good mixer if you like sweet cocktails.

6. Mango Chilli Mojito Cocktail Mixer
Calories – 54 kcal for 100 ml.
The Mango Chili Mojito is not a conventional cocktail, so we do not have any set ingredients or recipes that we can gauge it against.
Ingredients used in the mango chilli mojito – Water, sugar, alphonso mango pulp (5%), mango juice concentrate (1%), lemon juice concentrate (1%), acidity regulators, antioxidant, stabilizers, and preservatives. Suggested alcohol to make a Mango Chilli Mojito is rum or vodka.
Appearance and aroma – This deep yellow colored drink instantly reminded us of mango based drinks that we had as kids. The strong chili and mango aroma were undeniable as soon as we opened the bottle.
Flavor notes – This was just super yum and innovative. The thick mango sweetness and the surprisingly balanced chili spike was delicious. We could not stop ourselves from going back for this again and again. If you are hosting or even if making a cocktail just for yourselves, this mixer would be an excellent option. Even when had as is, this is super yum!
From the beautiful, colorful bottles to the yummy flavors and to the convenience attached to these mixers – we loved it all. We liked how none of these beverages tasted artificial. Who is stopping you from making some kick-ass cocktails in the comfort of your own home? Time to stir up a storm!
