Best Cocktail Mixer: White Whale

Main Liner Rob Altieri and his southern friends, Dave Staples and Corey Mason, have developed a line of low-maintenance, garden-fresh mixers that will snag you compliments when all you do is add booze. The offbeat lineup ranges from the Mob Man (think a black currant and pear Manhattan) and the lemony Skinny Dipper (perfect with tequila) to the Your Older Brother (mix of Siberian fir with sweet orange).
