Why are the ingredients in the bottle separating?
At Yes Cocktail Company we use only the finest NATURAL ingredients. Our recipes are crafted with FLAVOR in mind, not visual appeal. Which means we don’t use emulsifiers or stabilizers (AKA chemicals) to keep our products from separating. Give the bottle a shake and you’ll see the ingredients redistribute within the bottle. We recommend shaking the bottle before each use!
NOTE ON GINGER: Our products containing ginger will show the most separation, due to the natural ginger content contained within. Ginger root “juice” will rise to the top of the bottle and appear cloudy, just like a ginger shot made at a juice bar! This ginger content may cling to the glass and create a ring — this is 100% normal and should be expected — it’s how you know we’re using the real deal!
What are Yes products made of?
All natural fruit, herbs, spices and botanicals. Each of our recipes is crafted to achieve a perfectly balanced cocktail or mocktail every time; containing a blend of infused simple syrup, bitters and citrus. Our bitters are crafted from alcohol and botanicals steeped for 30+ days (no chemicals or propylene glycol). The finished bitters content contained within a bottle of mixer or vial of cubes is considered trace and is therefore NON ALCOHOLIC. It’s just like adding vanilla extract to your baking!

How are Yes Products made?
All Yes products are crafted with care by hand at our Paso Robles, CA warehouse. Each batch is quality tested by our founders, Lauren & Brandon.
Are Yes Products Alcoholic?
The entire Yes Cocktail Co. Product line is NON ALCOHOLIC. You may see “alcohol” listed as in ingredient on a product, as it contains bitters. Although bitters are formulated with alcohol, is exactly like adding Vanilla Extract to your cooking or baking; although it contains alcohol, the amount added to the total yield is only a trace amount (less than .01%) which makes it a NON ALCOHOLIC product. Yes Products are safe for all ages and are always 100% non alcoholic (unless you decided to add your own alcohol, of course).
Can Yes products be used for Mocktails?
Absolutely! Yes products make fantastic mocktails due to their complex flavor profiles. Each product contains a combination of infused simple syrup, citrus, and bitters to make a perfectly balanced and interesting drink every time! Just add a splash to sparkling water, iced tea, or lemonade for a delightful mocktail.
What Spirits do I mix with?
You can mix Yes Cocktail Co products with any spirit of your choice— vodka, gin, tequila, mezcal, bourbon, brandy, rye, blended whiskey, champagne, wine, aperitifs, liqueurs, non-alcoholic spirits, or no spirit at all! For more detailed recommendations, check out the label on each bottle for our suggested pairings or visit our How to Guide page for step by step instructions.
What’s the difference between syrups and mixers?
Our mixers are a blend of infused simple syrup, bitters, and citrus designed to create a perfect cocktail every time. Our syrups are just that, syrup! Crafted with only real cane sugar and designed with cocktails in mind! But, they also make great additions to anywhere you’d use a syrup— coffee drinks, cooking, baking and more!
