All natural, low sugar, with vitamins and antioxidants.
You can mix club soda with any of our mixers for a delicious superfood seltzer..
One bottle of the Margarita and Mule each make 10 cocktails. One bottle of the Old Fashioned mix makes 32 cocktails (because you use less of it per cocktail).
Eric and I are the founders and co-owners of Modica, the world’s first Superfood Cocktail Mix. Eric has ten years of experience in cocktails and mixology, while I have ten years in sales, account management, and customer service. We met while earning our MBA at the University of Louisville in 2016. We noticed all the cocktail mixers in the market were full of sugar, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. We wanted to create a better-for-you cocktail mix that anyone could use to create a craft superfood cocktail at home.
Using Eric’s decade of professional bartending experience, we created a trio of cocktail mixers that use naturally sourced superfood ingredients, so they taste just as good as what you would get in a restaurant. We also use a blend of cane sugar and stevia so each serving has 35 or fewer calories. We don’t use preservatives or artificial ingredients, and we fortify Modica with vitamins for an extra boost of wellbeing. We are a beverage focused company that operates nationwide. Even if you do not like our drinks, find other beverage businesses to shop at.
Since then, Modica has been featured by local and national outlets. Modica is sold in over a dozen locally-owned businesses and we started working with a distributor in March 2021 to expand and grow Modica. This loan would help us hire part-time event staff and feature Modica at farmer’s markets and other local events, in addition to supporting our next production run.
We feel passionate about Modica because we think everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious, craft cocktail or mocktail at the end of the day without feeling guilty about it. Modica brings people together and reunites friends and family after spending over a year apart from each other.
Jd & Eric’s story
When Modica co-founders, Eric and I met in business school, we were both working full time and taking night classes to earn our MBA. At the end of a very long day, we wanted to enjoy a craft cocktail at home, but we were too tired to make something from scratch and the mixers we found in the grocery stores were full of sugar, preservatives, and artificial ingredients.
We wanted an easier solution for better-tasting, better-for-you cocktails for everyone, no expertise required. Because some people are experts, like Eric, who has a decade of bartending experience, owns two bars, and infuses his own syrups. But some people are like me, who can barely squeeze a lime. And then we had a realization.
So many of the superfoods we love would make excellent cocktails! For three years, we experimented with ingredients until we found the perfect cocktail combinations. We said “yes!” to naturally sourced ingredients, antioxidants, and B-vitamins. And we passed on preservatives, tons of sugar, and anything artificial. We wanted a fantastic cocktail (or two), and they didn’t want to feel guilty about it afterward.
Despite the hurdles we faced in 2020, we’re more excited than ever about the future. The year ahead of us is all about reconnecting with friends and family. People who haven’t seen each other for months and months will be closing their Zoom apps (finally!) and coming together in person to celebrate. And what’s better for celebrating than a pitcher of margaritas on the patio? Or an Old Fashioned around the fire pit? It’s time for people to take a vacation, have a cocktail, and relax with their loved ones. And we want to be a part of that.
