Introducing Cascara Cola by Mary Pellettieri
We are so thrilled to bring you our newest grand dame of mixers, Top Note Tonic's Cascara Cola.
First we used a unique ingredient, Cascara, the red fruit of the coffee plant, to differentiate our Cola as a tasty and functional mixer, and reduce a waste stream that otherwise is well wasted....Cascara is an amazing fruit, loaded with potassium, fiber and antioxidants, that many times gets wasted. But waste not! Re-purposed Cascara has found its way to the market in a dried form. We sourced our Cascara from our friends in Austin Texas that also provide us with our Organic Green Coffee Caffeine source for this Cola.
We paired these two amazing ingredients with our Cola flavor, made with rich cinnamon, orange peels, and lime, to create a sumptuous treat - ready to serve on it's own, or mix with the best bourbons, fernets, rums without shame. Why hide delicious flavors, let them come together in our Cascara Cola.

Wondering if this is great as a stand-alone? Of course it is, Top Note made it! So at your next lunch date, don't settle for the "ice-tea" play. How many times have you had an ice tea that tastes like cardboard? Raise hand emoji here....this is where our Cola will shine. A perfect pick me up for the adults in the room. 35 mg caffeine, and less than 100 calories a serving.
