Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s
Top Shelf Margarita Mix


By Robert Plotkin

The only mystery about Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s Top Shelf Margarita Mix is who the heck are Dr. Swami and Bone Daddy? Other than that, everything else is perfectly clear. This line of gourmet mixes originated in Northern California where it quickly became something of a popular phenomenon. One thing naturally followed another and soon this small batch Margarita mix had become famous. A few sips will tell you why.
Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s Top Shelf Margarita Mix is a delicious, high quality product made from tree-ripened limes and lemons, and sugar cane as a sweetener. In a masterful stroke of genius, the good doctor and Bone Daddy splashed in a dose of grapefruit juice for an intriguing and unexpected burst of flavor. Feel perfectly free to use this mix in more than just Margaritas—it’s that good.

This is indeed a top shelf mix and priced accordingly. However, don’t forget the time-tested adage about buying quality and never being disappointed. Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s mix is endowed with excellent color, a citrus bouquet and a light, smooth body with a small amount of pulp for good measure. The lemon-lime palate is lively, flavorful and appropriately tart on the finish. It’s a creative boost to any alcohol-free repertoire.

The line also includes Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s Gourmet Bloody Mary Mix. Featuring the likes of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, Morehouse Horseradish and Tabasco Hot Sauce, it’s ideally balanced with no one flavor dominating the palate.

Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s Gourmet Sweet and Sour Mix is another gem made with lemon juice and pure cane sugar. In addition to being eminently refreshing, the good doctor and Mr. Daddy made sure that the mix is perfectly balanced between sweet and sour.

Ready to use at a moments notice, all three mixes come with the Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy seal of approval. And you can take that to the bank.
