To bring you the best in Local Products!
I am excited to introduce a couple of LOCAL—TOP QUALITY products that you can’t find at grocery stores (they all have retail locations but are not convenient to the beach). However, Grocery Concierge can get these products along with your typical grocery items and stock your vacation beach rental with everything you need!
Looking for the best WATER? Emerald Coast Ultra-Pure Water is perfect for the beach because the bottles are different!
2 types of bottles: BPA Free (with a waterproof label that doesn’t peel off and go into the ocean) and Aluminum (not just for beer; keeps the water colder longer). Both are great for long days at the beach or nights listening to the bands’ play. Both bottles are intended for multiple uses (not single-use like most brands) and are recyclable. This water is not readily available for retail, but we can get cases when requested.
Are you looking forward to enjoying an ICED COFFEE as you walk along the beach in the morning? Or maybe you prefer an afternoon coffee BUZZ—Let me introduce Mrs. Jones Cold Brew Coffee. While writing the article, I stopped, went to the kitchen, mixed 2 oz Elixir Coffee Concentrate with 1 packet of Stevia, 2 oz Soy Milk, and 4 oz filtered water. I poured it over crushed ice, and I have my perfect afternoon Sweet & Creamy treat. The best part, all the ingredients were in my kitchen already. No driving or waiting is required. Could I get extra FANCY and add flavored syrups and even some whipped topping? SURE! If you have those ingredients, you can practice your Barista skills anytime, and impress your friends and family.
Spending a week at the beach and want Iced Coffees—order the following items:
- Mrs. Jones Coffee Elixir (1 bottle = 16 oz or 8 servings)
- Milk or Non-Dairy Beverage (Soy, Almond, Coconut, combination, ½ & ½)
- Sweetener (packets or simple syrup (sugar water) or flavored syrups)
- Toppings: Whipped Topping, Chocolate Syrup, Caramel Syrup, Sprinkles, spices (Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg)
- 18 oz plastic cups (cold) or 16 oz hot cups with lids—be sure to dispose of all cups properly!
Another local beverage company, Big Jerk Soda, offers a variety of natural sodas and cocktail mixers that are great for a beach vacation! Recipes like Gin & Flowers sound complicated—but all you need is Gin (your favorite brand) and Big Jerk Lavender Lemonade with a garnish of lemon twist! Delicious and Easy! Or the ever-popular Moscow Mule—Big Jerk has a delicious Ginger Beer (nothing artificial). Combine Vodka (or try with Tequila for a Mexican Mule) and fresh lime juice (roll the limes on the counter for better juicing).
Spending a week at the beach make some tasty cocktails—order the following items and check out the recipes below:
- Alcohol: Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Whiskey
- Big Jerk Sodas: 4 bottles/$10—
- Flavors include Ginger Beer, Lavender Lemonade, Cherry Limeade, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Blueberry Peach, and Key Lime Seltzer water (not sweet).
- Garnish: Lemon, Limes, Oranges (twists and wedges, and fresh juice)
Have you heard of Frios Gourmet Pops (as in popsicles)? The production facility is in Mobile, AL but locally we have a franchise that covers Navarre and Pensacola Beach. Frios pops are delicious, and they offer options for nut-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, with seasonal flavors as well as their signature flavors. We love sharing a few pops as a gift to our visitors and letting them know where they can buy more of these amazing desserts on a stick!

The Frios Truck can often be seen at select events in both Navarre and Pensacola.
Are you looking for an artisan charcuterie experience? The Board Chef is a partner of ours for Sunset Beach Picnics and she prepares boards of all sizes. Request a board, and we will deliver it along with your other grocery items and beverages. There’s nothing better than arriving to a fresh board of meats and cheeses to help you start relaxing and feeling the island vibe.
