Mira Pineapple Nectar

Mira Pineapple Nectar

In 1997 the Florida based band Mira (not to be confused with K Records artist Mirah) started putting out albums of shoegazey dream pop bliss. Sometime in the last century a mysterious conglomerate also known as Mira started putting out sugary juice bliss. I think the two must be correlated in some way. I mean what are the chances of so much bliss being created by two separate entities with the same name? I mean sure you could go to the Mira nectar website and you are met by "tropical/island" music, but hey people change. Maybe the fine folks in the band decided they want a more cheery demeanor in their lives.

I'd like to think that when the band went on hiatus in 2006 they directed their efforts into this other endeavor. Each member of the band chose a fruit and it was his or her duty to perfect a juice for production. Guitarist Tom Parker obvious pulled the pineapple card. The taste of this juice is as thick and dreamy as his guitar playing. He took the juice of a wonderful fruit and added some sugar to it to successfully combat the weird bile taste that it's juice sometimes has, while keeping the natural flavor intact. I've lost myself in his music, and I've lost myself in his juice.

I really wish this were all true. Imagine a band going from this to this. It would be simply amazing.

Mira Voy! Aloe Vera Nectar

Mira Voy! Aloe Vera Nectar

This is my first visit with the Mira aloe drink. It's slightly different from the Aloevine original aloe flavor. This one doesn't taste as much like grape, even though it has artificial grape flavor in it. It does have a general sweet taste that I really enjoy. The aloe chunks in this one are also a lot bigger, which is pretty great. I just can't get enough of aloe drinks.

Mira Guava Nectar

Mira Guava Nectar

When I was in high school I was obsessed with guava. It may or may not have had something to do with the Ween album I bought being called "Pure Guava." Regardless anytime I ever saw anything guava flavored (which wasn't very often) I jumped at a chance to try it. Years later, I don't really care about Ween anymore, but my love of guava has kept strong. This drink is one of the better that I've had throughout my life. It's sweetened guava puree, and what else could you ask for. I'll tell you what, for it to come in a bigger bottle, so I'm not left craving more when it's gone.

Mira Mango Nectar

Mira Mango Nectar

If you like mangoes, this is the drink for you. It's straight up mango puree with some water added. I feel like I'm biting into a perfectly ripe mango with every sip I take. I'm surprised to find that I don't have the juice of the fruit dripping down my chin. It's that convincing. All of that and it's made in Egypt. Weird.
