When it comes to the CPG beverage space, consumers are always looking for authentic and easily accessible alcoholic or mock drinks. With so many options on the market, how can you innovate to meet evolving demands and reach new audiences?

After creating a cocktail mix in tea bags, business partners Chloe Bergson and Alison Evans knew they wanted to position the product as an innovation in the drink mixer space. But consumers began using the product as a mock tea, so Alison and Chloe refined their messaging and designs to eliminate confusion and convey the item as a versatile drink for everyone. They encourage other spirit and drink brands to identify market demand and release multiple item variations to evaluate product-market fit.
