Company description…

Mingle’s mission is simple: provide a delightful beverage experience whenever alcohol is served, so everyone feels part of the occasion! We offer all-natural, sparkling, low-calorie, alcohol-free mocktails available in fabulous options like Cranberry Cosmo, Moscow Mule and Blackberry Hibiscus Bellini. Whether mixed or as a mocktail, everyone’s part of the party with Mingle Mocktails.

I started my company because…

I quit drinking alcohol four years ago and quickly learned my only options at work and social functions were boring seltzer or sodas. I believed there should be another choice that enabled me to feel part of these occasions. I learned that I’m not alone; more than 35% of Americans don’t drink at all, and there are millions more who cut back as a lifestyle choice. I was inspired to follow my heart and develop a delightful beverage that allows everyone to feel part of the occasion! Now we have a new choice that is great for both non-drinkers and drinkers to feel special and socially connected, where we can sip our mocktails and cocktails together!

The impact I want my company to have on the world…

I am fully committed to overcoming the stigma associated with those who live an alcohol-free life. I have personally experienced how awkward it can feel to be a non-drinker at a party or work event. I want to show how an alcohol-free lifestyle is still fun! My goal is to make “Beer, Wine, and Mocktails” a standard in the food and beverage industry, with Mingle available wherever alcohol is served or sold. Whether at a bar, restaurant, convention center or neighborhood gathering, Mingle is offered so everyone can enjoy a delightful mocktail or cocktail and feel socially connected.

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. Secure additional distributors to scale Mingle into more retailers.
  2. Increase sales exponentially by getting into key grocery retailers.
  3. Build a sustainable brand identity for businesses and consumers, positioning Mingle as the leader of the Mocktail beverage segment.

Women entrepreneurs are…

Passionate, goal oriented, persistent, resilient and collaborative individuals who do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

I #EmbraceAmbition because…

I won’t succeed if I don’t try. I replaced my fear of failure with my vision for success.
