You don’t need alcohol to have a good time. It’s true, Blake Lively says so.
Blake Lively, the renowned actress, recently launched her own line of non-alcoholic sparkling mixers called “Betty Buzz”.
The fizzy mixers were three years in the making and are produced with real juice, natural flavours, and zero sweeteners. The line is also non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free; it is absolutely fitting for everyone.
“I don’t drink. I know that’s odd coming from the wife of an infamous gin slinger. Over the past many years of mixing but not drinking cocktails, it became clear mixers are the unsung heroes of the drink world and deserve just as much love as alcohol,” Blake Lively said in a statement. “We’ve spent the last three years crafting Betty Buzz and are so excited for people to finally taste it.”
The Betty Buzz mixers come in five different flavours: Tonic Water, Sparkling Grapefruit, Meyer Lemon Club Soda, Sparkling Lemon Lime and Ginger Beer. Each bottle can make two cocktails if desired.
The new launch is also personal for Blake, with the line’s name honouring her family.
“My dad’s name was Ernest Brown Jr but he was known as Ernie Lively. He gave up his last name when he married my mom and any success, he, or I, have experienced has been in a name that isn’t his,” the actress explained in a release.
She continued, “So when I was working hard to build this company, I wanted any success to be in a name that was meaningful to him. Betty was his mom and his sister’s name.
And, if you are a devoted swiftie, you may recognize the names of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynold’s other daughters, James and Inez, alongside Betty.
“Why should alcohol get all the fun? Try it,” Lively said. “The bubbles and flavours feel like a buzz of joy.”
