  • A CASA is a local woman-owned, all-natural margarita mix.
  • Made with just 3 ingredients: fresh squeezed limes, organic agave, water. A CASA comes in 2 different flavors, regular and spicy, which is made with serrano peppers.
  • A Jar yields about 6-8 margaritas.


  • Bee2Bee was founded in 2016 by Nicole Buergers and provides beekeeping services and hyperlocal honey throughout Houston.
  • Each colony has their own nectar and pollen preferences, and it comes through in the taste of the honey.
  • The honey is bottled in glass jars as bottling in plastic affects the honey’s taste, especially over time.


  • The company was founded by two sisters, wanting to share their knowledge about the healing power of Ayurveda.
  • All recipes are created with certified organic herbs and each spice is individually hand-roasted to release the essential oils, aromas and healing benefits. There are never any added sweeteners, flavors, or anything artificial in the blends.
  • Golden Milk is one of their best-known products. This blend includes turmeric along with a powerhouse of spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and black pepper to relax sore muscles, help alleviate inflammation, promote digestion, and improve skin clarity
