Happy Hour: Flavors of Fall

Happy Hour: Flavors of Fall



At Skinny Mixes, Happy Hour is our favorite hour. Every Thursday, we get together as a team and enjoy drinks! This week, being the first week of September, we wanted ALL the fall vibes. The autumn aesthetic in our office is strong, and our pumpkin pecan waffle candles burn on the daily. September is our excuse for pumpkin everything! 


We decided to twist things up this happy hour and test the team on their taste buds. We blindly tasted our Fall lineup with cold brew to see who could guess them all correctly! Jordan was the winner, of course - she knows our syrups inside and out! Getting 5 correct flavors was hard to beat, but Brittany and Michelle came in close and tied for runner up!


Along with our taste test game, we also enjoyed Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins. These low-carb muffins are made with Skinny Pumpkin Cheesecake Syrup, and let me tell you, they taste like autumn in a muffin. SO GOOD! We each took a few home to our family, and even the kiddos couldn't get enough of these.

To spice things up even more, the team tried Pumpkin Pie Fireball Pudding Shots. These shots were made specially with Skinny Pumpkin Spice Syrup by Alex and Em. Obviously these were a hit and we will 100% be having them again as it gets closer to the holidays. Everyone agreed that the shots were a perfect treat to bring to the plate on Thanksgiving!

As happy hour came to an end, the team sipped on appletinis, thanks to our newest syrup that debuted yesterday! We all enjoyed experimenting with the Skinny Candy Apple Syrup. Jordan's concoction was a crowd favorite: a shot of vodka with 2 tablespoons of Skinny Syrup. To give your appletini a kick, add a teaspoon of Skinny Caramel Syrup! It will taste like a boozy caramel apple pop.

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season, skinnies! Stay tuned for our next happy hour!
