Honest Drnxmyth Review, A Twist on Ready To Drink Cocktails

by | Aug 29, 2022 | 1 comment

Even professional bartenders want someone else to make them a drink. I’d guess that they sometimes want that more than their customers. So we set out on the search to find the best Ready-to-Drink cocktails. 

Drnxmyth was an early stop on the journey, but it was a good one. We’ve done the dirty work and tried most of their lineup. So we can tell you what we think, and you can decide whether to try them. 

Drnxmyth Classic 5 Ready To Drink

What is Drynxmyth?

Drnxmyth is real cocktails. They’re made from fresh ingredients, high-quality spirits, and cocktail recipes created by actual bartenders. They’re perfect at home, at a party, or for gifting.

They use “high-pressure twist-to-mix” technology, separating ingredients to keep them fresh without flavor-altering preservatives.

Where Can You Buy Drnxmyth?

If you live in New York or Los Angeles, you might be able to find Drnxmyth in a reasonably nearby liquor store. But, suppose you don’t live in one of these two major metropolitan areas? In that case, the only place to buy Drnxmyth cocktails is directly from their website. 

The Drnxmyth website is easy to navigate and provides a wealth of information about the company and its products. For purchase, they offer cocktails individually, each bottle providing 2 servings, or set bundles of 5, 10, or 20 bottles, 10, 20, and 40 servings, respectively.

The Classic 5 Package

Our first sampling of the Drnxmyth lineup was the Classic 5 bundle. This is their starter package with 5 classic cocktails, some of which have a slight twist.

On every Drnxmyth bottle is the contributing mixologist’s name, Instagram handle, and information about the cocktail inside, including ingredients, ABV, and instructions for using the twist-to-serve packaging.

Bourbon Sour – Jason F Yu

The bourbon in this cocktail has a high rye content, which creates a nice contrast to the sweet molasses flavor of the blackstrap bitters. Despite the higher lemon juice content, the orange juice shines.

As a result, the cocktail is juicy and slightly sour with a hint of salt. This was quickly one of our favorites.

Drnxmyth Bourbon Sour


  • 2.64 oz. bourbon (45% ABV)
  • 8 drops blackstrap bitters;
  • 0.95 oz. lemon juice
  • 0.44 oz. orange juice
  • 0.24 oz. water
  • 0.81 oz. simple syrup
  • 3 drops salt

Eastside – Hawk

Three of us tried this cocktail, and all three loved it. So much so that I drew a heart in my notes. It was an easy shorthand. All Hawk’s Eastside flavors were balanced, none overpowering another.

The gin was the glue that held together the freshness from the cucumber, tart lime flavor, and added dimension from the mint. The simplicity of this cocktail makes it simultaneously simple and impossible to replicate in a ready-to-drink fashion.

Still, they managed to make a drink that ranks with the Eastsides we’ve had at a bar.

Drnxmyth Eastside


  • 2.62 oz. gin (40% ABV)
  • 0.22 oz. water
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 0.95 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.14 oz. cucumber juice (no water added)
  • 1.79 oz. mint-infused water
  • 3 drops salt

Rum Punch – Bad Birdy

The Drnxmyth Rum Punch is exactly what you need if you want a sweet beach drink. The coconut milk and banana syrup give the tiki-style cocktail a creamy texture which is perfect over pebble ice.

Combined with the molasses in blackstrap bitters and the sweetness of rum, the banana syrup flavor dominates the beverage. Admittedly, we like our drinks a little more sour than sweet and would have preferred a touch more citrus acidity to the cocktail. But that’s just us.

We’d still drink this Rum Punch anytime.

Drnxmyth Rum Punch


  • 2.60 oz. rum (40% ABV)
  • 2 drops blackstrap bitters
  • 0.17 oz. water
  • 1.25 oz. pineapple juice
  • 0.37 oz. lime juice
  • 0.41 oz. banana syrup
  • 1.35 oz. mint-infused water
  • 0.37 oz. coconut milk
  • 3 drops salt

Strawberry Mojito – Brian Klemm

This classic delivers what it promises. Mojitos are light, easy drinking, fresh, and refreshing. The Strawberry Mojito from Drynxmith is all of those things, with a bit of pizzaz.

The strawberry puree isn’t overpowered by the mint; it tastes like fresh strawberries, not syrupy or artificial. Vanilla extract is a beautiful touch in this drink.

Just present enough to know it’s there and round out the citrus and strawberry flavors without adding sweetness.

Drnxmyth Strawberry Mojito


  • 2.64 oz. rum
  • 0.24 oz. water
  • 0.71 oz. lime juice
  • 0.71 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.34 oz. strawberry puree
  • 2.10 oz. mint-infused water
  • 0.03 oz. vanilla extract
  • salt drops

Ginger Drop – Richard Allison

Ginger is one of our favorite ingredients in cocktails, so it makes sense that we would love a ginger-centric cocktail. The drink is surprisingly sweet, but the ginger’s spicy snap evens it.

The addition of Jamaican bitters is a nice compliment. Overall, we really liked this cocktail but would probably like it better with gin.

Drnxmyth Ginger Drop


  • 2.64 oz. Los Angeles Distillery vodka (40% ABV)
  • 5 drops Jamaican bitters
  • 0.24 oz. water
  • 0.95 oz. lemon juice
  • 0.07 oz. ginger juice
  • 0.88 oz. simple syrup
  • 3 drops salt

10 Cocktail Package

This package includes 5 additional cocktail flavors to the Classic 5. These cocktails leave more room for experimentation with flavors because they don’t have to fit within the “classic” mold.

Cucumber Margarita – Casa Mexico and The Best Drink Ever

Cucumber in a margarita makes sense. It’s cool and refreshing, perfect for summer, just like margaritas. We enjoyed this twist on a classic cocktail. The cucumber aroma was potent but blended nicely with the lime, cracked pepper, and salt flavors.

While subtly reminiscent of an everything bagel, somehow, the combination of sweet, sour, and savory worked. Even if you’re not a fan of cucumbers, like Carl, this cocktail serves a purpose at the right time and place. Preferably with tacos.


  • fresh cold-pressed cucumber
  • lime
  • agave
  • salt
  • cracked pepper
  • two shots of Casa Mexico Tequila Blanco

Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita

“That’s a spicy meatball” – AlkaSelzer, 1969, and Carl, 2022. Let’s be honest; if you don’t like things with at least a little kick, you’re probably not even going to try this one.

But if you can handle just a little bit of heat, this cocktail is impressive. The jalapeño flavor gives the sweet pineapple a nice bite, but you’re not going to breathe fire. There’s not much more to say than this is a phenomenal drink.

It tastes fresh and juicy without being too sweet. The flavors of pineapple, jalapeño, and agave are balanced. And it’s delicious.

Drnxmyth Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita


  • 2.60 oz. tequila blanco
  • 0.03 oz. orange liqueur
  • 0.20 oz. water
  • 0.93 oz. pineapple juice
  • 0.72 oz. lime
  • 0.56 oz. agave
  • 0.14 oz. jalapeño puree
  • 0.22 oz. salt

Apricot Rye Smash – Leandro Pari DiMonriva of The Educated Barfly

The Apricot Rye Smash packs big flavors into a (relatively) small bottle. We don’t frequently see the combination of spicy rye whiskey with sweet and juicy apricot.

Still, when we do, it’s decadent and mouth-watering. In a good way, this cocktail offers one of the most substantial alcohol presences in the Drnxmyth lineup.

Rye whiskey is a perfect accompaniment to vanilla bitters and almond syrup while still allowing the apricot flavor to shine.

Drnxmyth Apricot Rye Smash


  • 2.5 oz. rye whiskey
  • 0.02 oz. vanilla bitters
  • 0.98 oz. lemon juice
  • 0.64 oz. apricot puree
  • 0.95 oz. almond syrup
  • 1.8 oz. water
  • salt drops

Spiced Sangria

The Spiced Sangria makes us think of cold weather outside, a warm fire in the fireplace and spending quality time with people you love.

The cinnamon and orange flavors add warm mulled notes to the red wine. In addition, we were surprised by the mint water addition to the drink.

Even though the bright green mint flavor seemed like it would clash, it contributed an unexpectedly pleasant dimension and freshness.

Drnxmyth Spiced Sangria

Rose Sangria

Picture it: you’re eating brunch. You’re on a patio with friends. It’s a warm summer morning, and you want a light, cheerful cocktail to match the sunny atmosphere.

This Rosé Sangria is precisely that drink. It’s crisp, light, and better than a mimosa. The fruit flavors mingle together in such a way that they’re indiscernible from each other.

Still, they add a bright punch to the delicate rosé wine, supported by floral notes from rose water and the salinity of the salt drops.

Drnxmyth Rose Sangria


  • 2.10 oz. rosé wine
  • 0.78 oz. brandy
  • 0.41 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.24 oz. strawberry puree
  • 0.68 oz. lemon juice
  • 1.15 oz. peach juice
  • 1.25 oz. water
  • salt drops
  • rose water

Other Flavors

They offer seasonal cocktails that can be ordered separately or sometimes in packages. Here is our review of the seasonal ones we have had an opportunity to try.

Hibiscus Haze – Bad Birdy

Hibiscus imparts a beautiful color and delicate floral note throughout this intriguing cocktail. The first flavors are smoky and grassy notes from the mezcal. These flavors are balanced by lime juice and a hint of cinnamon.

The mint-infused water offers a nice, light finish. Unique and chuggable are the two best words we can find to describe the Hibiscus Haze.

We wish it wasn’t seasonal because it is truly an exciting adventure for the palate.

Drnxmyth Hibiscus Haze


  • 2.43 oz. Hibiscus-infused Mezcal
  • 0.41 oz. Water
  • 0.03 oz. Cinnamon tincture
  • 1.00 oz. Lime juice
  • 0.91 oz. Simple syrup
  • 1.83 oz. Mint-infused water
  • 7 Salt Drops

Blackberry Bramble – Hawk

The Blackberry Bramble is simple and tasty, and it’s perfect for someone who thinks they don’t like gin. This drink tasted freshly prepared despite being bottled, shipped, and stored in our refrigerator until we had time to sit down for a tasting.

All the other ingredients highlighted the blackberry, which is impressive since blackberry can be a tricky ingredient to work with.

Overall, this recipe is a 10/10 for the Drnxmyth team.


  • gin
  • lemon juice
  • blackberry syrup
  • salt drops

Peach Inferno – Tom Sandoval

We loved the heat and vegetal flavor of the jalapeño in this cocktail but feel it may have overpowered the peach. The Peach Inferno started thick and a little syrupy, then got better as it got colder in the glass with ice.

We thought this recipe was good, not great, and enjoyable in the right circumstance or paired with the right foods. 


  • vodka
  • jalapeño syrup
  • fresh peach juice
  • fresh grapefruit juice
  • fresh lime juice

Smoked Watermelon – Josue “The Garnish Guy” Romero

The Smoked Watermelon cocktail was our least favorite of the Drnxmyth lineup that we tried. But that doesn’t mean it was terrible; it just had a significant factor working against it. We don’t like watermelon in cocktails.

Watermelon juice can be acerbic and almost sweaty, making this cocktail smell slightly of feet. While drinking, though, the watermelon was masked by the mezcal, making it taste like someone ashed a cigar into it.

If you like mezcal, this drink is excellent for you because it’s also one of the booziest we sampled. Some people will love this cocktail; we just aren’t those people. 


  • mezcal
  • fresh watermelon juice
  • spiced honey
  • fresh lemon juice
  • basil infused water
  • aromatic bitters

In Conclusion

In our hunt for the best ready-to-drink cocktails, these are easily the best we’ve tried by a fair margin. Drnxmyth’s freshness can’t be beaten, the packaging is beautiful, and the price is reasonable for the quality of the product. They’re the only RTD cocktails we’ve tried that taste like you could have ordered them in your favorite bar.

Drnxmyth isn’t playing around. Their cocktails are deceptively boozy. It may taste like you can try all the flavors in one night, but we assure you it would be a bad idea. They are delicious, and you will want to do exactly that. But the alcohol will sneak up on you, and you will be very drunk. Trust us; we know from experience.
