Memorial Day Essentials

Memorial Day Essentials

Falling on the last Monday of May, Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the US military. Most companies offer huge discounts and sales over Memorial Day weekend, but it's imperative the true meaning of this holiday doesn't fade away.

So while we encourage you to enjoy the long weekend, the discounts you'll find (use code LONGWEEKEND at checkout for 15% off your next order 😉), and the tasty BBQs and cocktails you'll host and make, don't forget to remember our fallen military members!

To make Memorial Day gatherings stress-free, you're going to need supplies. The last thing you'll want to worry about is what drinks to serve your guests or what ingredients you'll need to make them. Don't worry, Skinny Mixes fans! We've taken the stress away and created this list of Memorial Day Essentials all for you.
