Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. Today we’re admiring packaging for fusion drinks, which harmoniously mix soda, tea, and booze, and also achieve the golden ratio of classic and contemporary design. So here’s to super-chic tea-infused cocktails and vintage whiskey and coke.

Cola Maison, by Old Faithful Shop
At first we mistook this bottle for a new cold brew coffee—the rich brown hue and lovely packaging are right out of the charming café of our dreams. However, the actual content is a Coke-flavored syrup of essential oils, helping you achieve the perfect whiskey and coke mixture. Good thing the packaging has already achieved a perfect harmony between a vintage look (steel gray, gold accents, and old-school glass bottle) and more contemporary details (clean sans serif type, geometric logo).

Organic Cordial, by Vijf890
With a look that’s refreshing enough for the fanciest al fresco boozing, this cocktail channels a summery, vintage-soda vibe. Plus, since the screen-printed type resembles good old-fashioned hand lettering, especially the “Siroop” (a name that perfectly encapsulates the swooping letterforms), the design has a simple yet authentic look that reminds drinkers of its organic ingredients.

Amber Brew, by Simon Thordal
This pared-down design is simple and effortless enough to have been completed in a week, but we’re crazy impressed that it was actually created in just a week’s time. The geometric logo and black and white color scheme add a modern aesthetic while the leather and wood box—not to mention the DIY-esque checklist of ingredients and the red typewriter type—lends a rustic, handmade charm. If only our homemade beer could look this good.

9 Volt, by Simon Störk
How would you visualize a “tingling, electrifying feeling” à la the sensation that fills your mouth after eating the Brazilian plant, para-cress? We gave it some thought, but never would’ve dreamed of this zen mix of crisp design with a fluid, yet edgy pattern. Though we’ve never tried a para-cress, the rich, psychedelic markings perfectly express the experience to the uninitiated, while the clean type and logo speak to the clean yet dark aroma of black tea.

Bushtea Rum, by Charley Davie
We’re never ones to pass up an understated and authoritative design, and this rum—inspired by the bush tea of the Caribbean—is no exception. The strong type, subtle copper gleam, and the faint, decorative pattern offers a good balance of antique and modern appeal. No intricate calligraphy or ornate illustrations required.
