AVEC [Av-ek], French for "with", is a premium all-natural beverage brand of juice-based mixers meant to be added to alcohol for tastier, healthier, and more sustainable cocktails. Made in Brooklyn, New York, each of our five lightly carbonated mixers draws from real, global ingredients such as, yuzu juice from Japan or blood orange from Italy, to create naturally low-sugar, low-calorie pairings for spirit drinks. AVEC is available in five uniquely delicious, low calorie, low sugar drinks, made from real juices and natural botanicals. Perfectly balanced to be mixed with your favorite spirits to update endless cocktails such as: a spicy margarita with Jalapeño & Blood Orange (2g sugar, 15 cals); a Paloma by way of Grapefruit & Pomelo (3g sugar, 15 cals); or a warming mule with the spiced Ginger & Pineapple (4g sugar, 20 cals). AVEC ships nationwide ($36 for a 12-pack; or $45 for a Sampler Pack with free shipping) at www.avecdrinks.com (affiliate links via ShareASale), and is stocked in NYC, the Hamptons and upstate NY on-and-off-premise at venues like Brooklyn Fare, Forager's Market, Mekelburg's, The Goods Mart, Round Swamp Farm, Amber Waves, Nature's Pantry and more.
AVEC Co-Founders and friends, Denetrias "Dee" Charlemagne and Alex Doman, noticed one thing that all drinks have in common: compromise. Tasteless vodka sodas. High balls, like rum & coke, full of nasties. Complicated cocktails teeming with sugar. Thoroughly unsatisfied, Dee and Alex created their own mixer. Or five, rather. Five uniquely delicious, low calorie, low sugar drinks. Made from real juices and natural botanicals. Perfectly balanced to be mixed with your favorite spirit. AVEC launched in 2020 with the single minded mission: Never compromise your spirit. Drink better, mix AVEC.

Mixing mezcal with Avec’s jalapeño & blood orange soda is as close to a spicy margarita as I’ll get in 2020
These colorful cans are like seltzer that’s grown up and gone to culinary school. Each flavor features thoroughly unique and adult flavors—like yuzu, hibiscus, blood orange, and jalapeno—that taste great straight up or with a nip of your favorite booze.
Avec is soda that's for mixing. The eight-ounce cans are low-sugar, low-calorie and were designed specifically to pair with your favorite spirit.
Avec bills itself as a line of better cocktail mixers, although the drinks, in flavor combinations like hibiscus and pomegranate and jalapeno and blood orange, can be enjoyed on their own
Tired of seeing beautiful spirits sullied with mass-market counterparts, Columbia Business School classmates Denetrias “Dee” Charlemagne and Alex Doman recently launched Avec to rethink the premade cocktail mixer category “along modern values,” using high-end ingredients and minimal additives and sugars.
Avec, a new juice-based soft drink, comes in five flavors and pairs well with tequila, gin or vodka.
Conscientious imbibers are looking not only for low-calorie drinks, but those made with less sugar and no artificial ingredients. Avec, a new canned mixer line from Brooklyn-based Dee Charlemagne and Alex Doman, is hoping to capitalize on that trend
