Bringing The Buzz To You
Electricdust™ is a revolutionary flavor & sensation enhancer developed by innovative Mixologist Mariena Mercer-Boarini. Based on the electrifying effect of the Buzz Button flower —as made famous by her Verbena cocktail— and with a dazzling appearance, now anyone can become a super-taster, and experience sensation on any cocktail, beverage or food. Whether it's mixed in a cocktail, used for rimming a glass it or dusted on frosting— there is a special way for Electricdust™ waiting to be used by you.
The Buzz Button
An electrifying flower native to Brazil and Paraguay, the Buzz Button is a natural alkaloid that stimulates your salivary glands, turning you into a super-taster. Once consumed, the electric buzz sensation dances across your tongue-- providing a tingling and numbing phenomenon.
We source our flowers from a family-owned farm in California known for its high standards, sustainability, and innovation.
How We do It
Mariena wanted to pioneer a process to make the ever-fickle Buzz Button shelf-stable and democratize the buzz-worthy experience for everyone. Through a patent-pending highly scientific process, Electricdust™ was born. A powder that is magically charged with a thrilling sensation, deliciously flavored with citrus and spice, and brilliantly hued and iridescent, Electricdust™ is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
How To Use
Electrify anything your tongue desires! Electricdust™ works best with long lasting direct contact with your tongue. We recommend rimming a glass with citrus and dusting some on the rim to start. But, Electricdust™ works as an ingredient in a beverage, sprinkled on pastry, and integrated in savory culinary dishes also.
