Needs Ice Only


It is a line of ready-mixed cocktails. NIO means “Need Ice Only,” it needs a glass as well–the prettier the better–(at least for me) ☺️. It should be the right one for the drink at hand! 🍹🍸

NIO is an Italian startup that has come up with a line of ready-made drinks just to be poured into the glass.

NIO cocktails can be tasted on any occasion, either alone or with friends; for now there are 10 proposals for customers who want a quality product that can be easily used in different contexts.

I am not a big cocktail person–although I tried quite a few NIOs–but I asked the opinion of a true “connoisseur,” the verdict was very positive.

What are the drinks of the NIO line?

Vodka sour, Whiskey sour, Margarita, Daiquiri, Gin sour, Milan-Turin, Boulevardier, Gimlet, Manhattan and Negroni.

They cost 4.50€ each (or in an elegant packaging of 5 or 10 pieces) and can be purchased on the official website.

But boxes can also be bought on Amazon.

Recently they introduced also the “Portofino” flavor. Updates are usually posted on Instagram.

The drinks contain no chemicals, preservatives or additives and have been made by a professional mixologist using only high quality products.

We Can Cut Corners!

Just shake, open the sachet (cut a corner) and pour the contents into a glass full of ice and that’s it! Ideal for a moment of relaxation while enjoying a good alcoholic drink or as a gift to friends;

What are you waiting for to try the ‘NIO cocktails‘?

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
