Let's keep it glowy and organic while entertaining. Thanks to VitaFrute, we've got certified organic ready-to-drink cocktails on the fly.

Made with premium VEEV® Açaí Spirit and only the finest Certified Organic ingredients, Vita Frute Cocktails have become our go-to for organic entertaining. These ready-to-drink cocktails make entertaining not only easy but healthy. Think of these drinks as a delicious low-calorie alternative to your everyday cocktail.

It's simple: Better ingredients make better cocktails. VitaFrute™ is available in four delicious ready-to-drink cocktails including: Margarita, Coconut Colada, Cosmopolitan and Lemonade. We love putting these drinks over ice and adding in some fresh seasonal fruit and herbs to the mix as well.

When it comes to prepping for an organic soiree, we stick to our farmers markets for local and organic produce: seasonal berries, fresh herbs, organic yogurts and cheeses. Stocking up on this produce will make your dishes and drinks burst with vibrancy and deliciousness. Simple dishes and light bites are really what guests want to be munching on along with their cocktails. Create a beautiful fresh fruit-cheese-nut board, prep a soba noodle salad and cucumber-avocado nori rolls for some satisfying and light bites, get the good tunes glowing and you'll be ready to #glow.

For our summer soirees, we're loving our Ginger lavender lemonade recipe made with VitaFrute™ Lemonade.
