Modica is the world's first superfood cocktail and mo made with superfoods, functional ingredients, and up to 70% less sugar than other mixers! Each mix is fortified with B-vitamins and two kinds of electrolytes so you're getting an extra boost of well-being with every sip. Modica comes from "modicum" which is a small amount of a great thing, because whether you're having a cocktail or mocktail, everyone deserves something great every day.

Current flavors include: Cucumber Aloe Margarita, Turmeric Ginger Mule, Tart Cherry Old Fashioned, Cacao Espresso Martini, and Blueberry Lavender Lemon Drop. Each mix can be combined with alcohol for a cocktail or club soda for a mocktail. The entire bottle can be used to make a pitcher of drinks, perfect for hosting and entertaining. We also include recipes on our website, so you can use Modica and a few other common ingredienets to make a more elevated cocktail.

Modica is 100% LGBTQ owned and certified through the NGLCC.

Founding Story

Modica was created when co-founders, Eric and JD met in business school in 2016. They worked full-time jobs and took three hours of night classes most evenings. At the end of those long days, what they wanted most was a cocktail. Eric has a decade of bartending experience, and he's opened two bars and restaurants in Louisville, but he was too tired to make something from scratch. And JD can barely squeeze a lime on a good day! So they looked at the mixers available in grocery stores and found they were full of preservatives, toxic ingredients and loads of sugar; and none of that sounded like it would make a tasty cocktail.

That's when they decided to create Modica with superfoods, vitamins, electrolytes, and up to 70% less sugar than other mixers. After working on the mixers for three years, Modica planned to launch in March 2020. Delayed by Covid-19, Modica was forced to delay their launch until October. Since then, Modica has expanded to nearly 100 outlets across 9 states, and continues to grow.

But before he went behind the bar, JD worked in sales and marketing and maintained a client porfolio of Fortune 50 companies. He also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia from 2011-2013.
