TikTok Is Divided Over Marshall's Infusion Cocktail Mixers

Marshall's, the sister store to TJ Maxx, is a budget fiend's dream. Aisles are stacked with discounted entryway rugs, designer shoes, and holiday decorations. The chain also happens to have an impressive inventory of marked-down gourmet ingredients, snacks, and now, drink mixes. One brand in particular, New York Cocktail Infusion Mixer, has now made its way to TikTok fame. Users are experimenting and taste-testing the many unique mixes to help determine if they are worth it.

One TikTok video featured a bottle of the On The Beach mix for $7.99, though, not everyone is as ready to indulge in Marshall's food aisle. One commenter wrote, "I can't bring myself to purchase anything edible from Marshall's. Sketchy af lol." Nevertheless, this TikTokker persevered, pouring nearly an entire bottle of tequila blanco into the mix (it should be noted that the mix called for vodka), letting it infuse overnight. The next day, the fearless woman poured the chilled, infused spirit into a glass. After a single sip, they revealed in gasping, ragged breaths, "That's liquor, that's liquor. To enjoy the drink, they topped the mix off with Sprite and juice. So is this dehydrated mixer worth it? The self-appointed TikTok jury is still out. 

Strong, but tasty

Though it took one person a few moments to gather themselves after their initial sips, their final decision was that the mixer was a success, and made for a delicious drink, saying, "It's good, y'all. Go get it. I like it." Comments varied, including praise like, "I bought one of every flavor and theyre [sic]," as well as, "Chileeeee my friend passed out drinking one." One thing nearly all of the taste testers seem to agree on is that these mixers make for a beverage that will put hair on your chest. Another TikTok reviewer was also taken aback by the potent booziness of the drinks, stating, "It hit the back of my throat. Um. Very strong, long, and in charge," but gave it a positive rating.

The mixes come in a variety of flavors from familiar favorites, like the mojito, to trending recipes, like the Singapore sling. Most of the infusion mixes contain sugar and dried fruits. Because of the high ratio of alcohol to flavoring, it's best to think of these infusions as flavored spirits, rather than standalone cocktails. Shake, mix, or blend the infusions with ice for a smoother sip. If you want to dilute the drink more, top it off with plain or flavored seltzer, lemonade, or juice depending on the mix and your tastes.
