Mo’ Mint & Thyme®
What will you be bringing to the market this year?
All-natural Drink Mixers (Mojito Mix, Happy Hibiscus, Ginger Zinger); Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
How did your company get started?
A quest to find fresh-tasting, preservative-free drink mixers led company founder Byrma Braham to develop her own versions of fresh concentrates based on traditional Caribbean recipes some five years ago.
What do you wish people knew about your product?
That we lovingly and painstakingly make all our mixes and seasonings from scratch ourselves, sourcing the freshest and best-quality ingredients, many, such as our ginger, hibiscus, mint and spices, are organic.
What question do you never get sick of customers asking?
Do you make these yourself?
Your favorite story about your company or the market?
While our mixers make a variety of awesome cocktails, they are non-alcoholic and family-friendly. We always enjoy the exuberant reaction of children when they sample our mixes at the market. They drive so much of our sales that we like to joke that our best customers are under 5 feet tall.
Do you have any recommended recipes or surprisingly awesome ways to use your products?
Our mixers are not limited to drink-making. Our ginger and hibiscus mixers both make surprisingly tasty vinaigrettes when blended with EVOO, white balsamic vinegar, a touch of Dijon mustard, salt and fresh ground pepper. A couple splashes in chicken, fish or vegetable saute dishes will enliven any dish.
