As bars and restaurants rapidly shift gears to accommodate increased demand for takeout and delivery, The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley is along for the ride. Now more than ever when quality is crucial for customer loyalty, The Perfect Purée’s diverse range of consistent, true-to-flavor purées, concentrates, zests and blends ensures your takeout stands up to travel. Takeout cocktails are no exception and by many accounts are a pandemic trend worth keeping.
Communal Kitchen in Nyack, N.Y. made good on the profit-boosting trend this summer with takeout drinks including the Social Distance Swizzle featuring The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley Kiwi with lemon verbena-infused rum and Giffard Lichi Li Lychee Liqueur.

Robert Renbon, owner of Cantina la Mexicana in Somerville, MA, just outside Boston, combines The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley Prickly Pear, Sweet Hibiscus Blend, and its newest flavor, Red Jalapeño, in a sour mix for takeout rum, tequila, and mezcal drinks. Robert makes other sour mixes with up to six Perfect Purée flavors and a signature Corazon mix with Mango, Prickly Pear and Blood Orange Concentrate. Robert is in the process of packaging his mixes in 10-ounce to-go containers. “I don’t even drink,” he says with a laugh, “I just make the best drinks and customers are buying them.”
