Starbucks Sparkling Passion Tango Tea Pineapple

Starbucks Sparkling Passion Tango Tea Pineapple

Starbucks. Woah. You really nailed it with this thing. It's sparkling makes a huge difference. The pineapple kicks it up another notch because it gives it a little sting. Then, as if that wasn't enough, I love the Passion tea. It's got that licorice that makes me feel kind of funny. Like when we used to climb the ropes in gym class.

This drink rules and if I get back into "the States" and they don't have it, I'm going to be very disappointed. Please be waiting for me when I get home. Wear something sassy or sultry. Not both. One or the other.

Thirsty Buddha Sparkling Pineapple

Thirsty Buddha Sparkling Pineapple

It’s been so very hot and so very humid in the world. Working in my shop it’s probably at least 10-15 degrees hotter than it is outside. There is only so much water a human can drink when it seems to instantly sweat out of one’s skin. Sure, I switch it up with unsweetened tea and seltzer, but neither tends to be very hydrating. This though, this was just the treat I needed. At just 11oz it refreshed and hydrated me more than a jug of water three times that size could have and it did it with style. This is more delicious than I ever could have imagined it being. This is a sparkling pina colada done in a way that I would consider right. Everything is in a perfect balance with the fruit juice making it slightly sweet. It tastes like fruit and coconuts (which some consider a fruit) and not just a syrupy overly sweet mess. I can’t express enough just how hydrating this was and being sparkling gave it a little pizazz to spice up my day. This is going to be a regular for me this summer I can tell you that already.

Bottle Green Sparkling Ginger & Lemongrass

Bottle Green Sparkling Ginger & Lemongrass

What a nice summer treat this would be. Currently it is 28° with a wind-chill of 13® but in this bottle it's summer time.

We all know what ginger tastes like. There's ginger ale and then there's ginger beer. This drink, like the Ale-8-One are spicy, but they are a nice middle ground between the two. You don't taste the lemongrass too much until the ginger lets go of your tongue, then you are left with the sweet taste of the lemongrass. It has just the right amount of citrus flavor.

If you ever have the opportunity, get this. It's very refreshing and they make it in a larger bottle for those who can't get enough.

Bottle Green Sparkling Cranberry & Orange

Bottle Green Sparkling Cranberry & Orange

My lady-friend grabbed a bottle of Bottle Green when we were on a weekend trip to Toronto. It was pretty great. I was excited when we were able to get some more. This is a nice blend of juices that have the perfect amount of carbonation. What makes it even better is that sugar is way down on the ingredients list. It's just fruity and not sugary.
It is definitely more sparkling juice than soda pop. It's very quick to hit you with the flavor, and it leaves you just as quick. I could totally see hippy executives drinking this at business meetings. It's classy, tasty, and one of the best sparkling juices I've ever had.

Bottle Green Sparkling Elderflower

Bottle Green Sparkling Elderflower

Who knew flowers were delectable? First I find out that hibiscus is tasty, and now thanks to Bottle Green I've learned that elderflowers are gosh darn great. It tastes flowery, but not in the way that say having your older brother hold you down and spraying aunt Matilda's ancient perfume down your throat tastes. This is almost fruity and fairly sweet. If only good ole Matilda used this to cover up her old lady smell, the world would be a better place.

Bottle Green Sparkling Pomegranate & Elderflower

Bottle Green Sparkling Pomegranate & Elderflower

This is one big bottle. It's supposed to be three servings, but I was feeling a bit gluttonous so I downed the whole bottle. Don't judge me. I was thirsty. It was delicious. I'm a grown ass man. I do what I do.

I love the amount of carbonation Bottle Green uses. The bubbles are so tiny and plentiful. Elderberry is the bandleader in this Broadway production of a sparkling drink. The pomegranate is present, but it's just a supporting role. I wish I had more knowledge of some Broadway shows so that I could make a more specific analogy, but I am an uncultured bumpkin. I prefer free-for-alls for hill people.

Les Celliers Associes Sparkling Apple Cider

Les Celliers Associes Sparkling Apple Cider

I found this at Marshall's for the low price of $1.99 and thought that I could not lose. It's like a personal bottle of non-alcoholic wine. It's doubly the same size as a can of pop.

It was good, too. It tasted more like sparkling apple juice than sparkling apple cider. It was not too sweet.

I wish you the best of luck finding it. Not because it was at Marshall's and their entire stock rotates bi-weekly. I hope that I got their product name right. It was in French and that's what it was sans accents. If you can try it do it. It's cheap enough, jeez.

Rubicon Sparkling Passion

Rubicon Sparkling Passion

Look at Rubicon stepping up their line and their image. They have given the contents of their juice boxes with some carbonation and packaged them in these fancy little cans. Seriously it’s the same juice, just carbonated and it’s glorious. For those of us with dreams of passionfruit, mango and guava sodas that actually taste like juice and not some weird bastardization of it, the dream has become a reality. Sure this is pretty sweet, but so is the actual fruit, and it’s pop now, so it’s supposed to be sweet. Don’t complain, just be grateful that they actually did things right and it tastes like you’re eating fruit, and not like fake flavoring or seltzer.

Rubicon Sparkling Guava

Rubicon Sparkling Guava

Dear Rubicon, I wanted to tell you that you’ve come a long way, but then I remembered that I actually loved the juices you sold in juice box form. I had expected them to be overly sweetened and watered down versions of the pure fruit, and while they did have extra sugar added to them, they were fairly spectacular. Any slight reservations I had about your juices have been thrown out the window by the addition of a few tiny bubbles. This actually tastes less sweet than the juice version, and I am fine with that. It’s guava puree spiced up with a little sugar and some carbonated water. It tastes like real guavas, which makes it automatically better than 90% of the drinks in the world. Rubicon, you have proved yourself yet again and I can’t wait to see what you have planned next.

Rubicon Sparkling Lychee

Rubicon Sparkling Lychee

I recently started a new job designing/developing websites. I have been freelancing for a while so getting this job was a nice change. Seeing as I do a lot of reviews in the office, my co-workers have taken an interest in the drinks I bring in. Our project manager Carly mentioned that she liked lychee in the past so I knew she was going to be excited about this drink. Given the track record Rubicon has been having with us lately, I had a good feeling this wouldn't be disappointing.

First thoughts were it had a nice lychee smell to it, but there was something else in there that I couldn't put my finger on. It has a sour after taste, in a good way. Carly said it tasted like grapefruit and I totally agree. It really works well with the lychee, though mysteriously is not present in the ingredients. Keep up the awesome work Rubicon.
