Todd Brutcher developed Southside Alchemy as a premier cocktail mixer business in 2019. His first release, Sweat & Tears is a big, bold mix intended to shift the paradigm of what a bloody Mary mix should and can be. Low Sodium, thick and with the perfect amount of heat, flavor and complete lack of weekend motivation. In addition to bloody mary mix, Southside Alchemy makes premium Sangria mixes.
Southside Alchemy won the Gold medal in the "New Release" category at the third annual international Drunken Tomato Awards. Sweat & Tears was applauded by a panel of expert bloody mary judges due to "a great balance of medium body, high heat, low acidity, smooth and hearty appearance and mouth feel.”
