Why should I buy Funkin cocktail mixers instead of another brand?
This is an easy one! Funkin are the only 100% natural fruit cocktail mixers on the market. We travel the world tasting hundreds of fresh sun ripened fruit to bring you the world’s best tasting cocktail mixers. We GUARANTEE never to add any nasty additives, preservatives, colourings or flavourings to your drink. Also we are nice to farmers around the world and try our best to help Mother Nature’s planet! Plus we love to have fun and no one else can quite party like Funkin!
Why are additives so nasty?
We believe that you are what you eat…and drink! Avoid putting any artificial chemicals in your mouth and go for the healthier alternative and use Funkin 100% natural fruit cocktail mixers. This is the cocktail mixer for the gourmet food lover; take a taste test you can really taste the difference!
Are your drinks GM free?
Wash your mouth out! All our cocktail mixers across the entire Funkin range are lovingly made with 100% natural fruit. Full stop. Nothing nasty will ever be added to our drinks, that’s a promise!
Do Funkin products contain nuts?
None of the Funkin range contains nuts. Contact us for any additional allergen-related questions
How can I look after and store Funkin drinks?
The Funkin range is the perfect friend, all very low maintenance but there just when you need them! The only TLC that is required is to place all products in a cool cupboard or drinks cabinet away from direct sunlight. Once the cocktail mixers, cocktail smoothies and cocktail purees are opened they need to chill out in a fridge for up to 7 days. That’s if you have any left after your party!
How long do Funkin cocktail products last?
All Funkin products last 12 months unopened making them the perfect party ingredient to store in your drinks cabinet. Once opened the Funkin cocktail mixers, purees and smoothies can last 7 days if refrigerated whilst the syrups last 12 months if stored in a cool cupboard. The fruit in Funkin cocktail mixers, smoothies, purees and syrups patiently wait to be opened so they can unpack that sun ripe fruit flavour.
So can you recycle your plastic bottles and cocktail pouches?
Yes and we encourage you to do so. All plastics can be recycled and the puree, smoothie and mixers pouches .We try our best to reduce our carbon footprint here at Funkin and ask that you join us in the quest to look after our planet. After all it gives us the ripest, juiciest fruit so it’s the least we can do.
Just how green is Funkin?
- Funkin products are packaged in recyclable bottles and packaging. This is a much more green option that regular polystyrene foam.
- We have a comprehensive recycling program in place at Funkin production plants, warehouse and offices.
- We recycle a wide variety of items including products discards, paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and more.
- Funkin are working to reduce our carbon footprint where possible.
How do you make sure Funkin fruit is ethical?
We take our social responsibility very seriously! We love farmers and have spent over a decade building up relationships to ensure that we always pay a fair price for our fruit. This also ensures that we get to cherry pick the freshest ripest fruit all year round and ensures we are at the front of the queue to pick the juiciest premium fruit for your cocktails!
Can you freeze Funkin cocktail pouches?
Sorry but no. We want you to enjoy the freshest tasting cocktail so do not recommend freezing. Once opened funkin cocktail mixers last 7 days in the fridge and unopened a whopping 12 months so there really is no need to freeze them!
