I'm Rachel, a.k.a. Ray Ray! I own and operate Cocktail Lab AZ and am the creator of Ray Ray's Sonoran Spirit Tea. I've always earned a living in the service industry. I have worked just about every job from dish washing to General Management. But this idea came to me when I was bartending. I used to see trends in what folks were drinking and I saw a gap in offerings. I created something that wasn't a beer and wasn't a cocktail... it was a spiked tea. This became my signature drink. My favorite part of bartending was making memories with folks and to be part of good times, I became obsessed with doing that on a larger scale. So the idea of Ray Ray's Sonoran Spirit Tea was born! My dad came up with the name because my work family called me Ray Ray as a term of endearment, and as most folks know we may spend more time with our work family than our actual family. That is a huge reason why a family operated business is so important to us. To have my parents, husband, kids, siblings and friends part of this crazy biz, is proving to be one of my life's great joys.
I started the Cocktail Lab journey during the pandemic, while I tried to figure out how to safely and legally produce and sell booze. With Cocktail Lab I could bartend and do cocktail catering, before I knew it I was consulting for bar and restaurants. This was the placeholder that allowed me to start my business journey before I had it all figured out, (I'm still learning). You can still find me behind the bar from time to time at the Historic Rialto Theatre Foundation spaces, because I just love it!
We are family owned and operated. My husband and I do the sales, distribution and account maintenance. Our friends at Thunder Canyon help us with production. A ton of thought has gone into every aspect, from the family crest that is our logo to the biodegradable 6 pack rings that hold our cans. Our recipe is hyper ingredient focused and the end results are awesome! It is light refreshing, subtle flavors and naturally gluten free, low abv, low calorie and low carb.
We wholesale to places like bars, resorts and local retailers. We have been operating for a little over one year and we are humbled by the support of our community. We can't wait to make Ray Ray's a trusted household name in the craft booze world, because it all comes back to good friends and good spirits.
