Sipping on juice and juice August 17, 2007

There seems to be an ever increasing range of fancy soft drinks on offer these days, and over the last few weeks I’ve been enjoying sampling a few as I’ve been out and about.

A few favourites so far:

Wake Up from Firefly Tonics. The packaging alone will make you want to buy a bottle of this – the bottle is orange, with a nice black and white photo on it. Taste-wise it doesn’t, to me at least, have the sort of flavour I’d expect, given the ingredients (red grapes and peaches, with green tea, Siberian Ginseng, Kola Nut and Yerba Maté) – to me, it tastes like a weak peach cordial. Which is a good thing – it’s yummy, but not sickly sweet. This is my favourite one.

More local to where I live (Nottinghamshire) are the drinks from Belvoir Fruit Farms. I’ve enjoyed the pressés, but haven’t tried the cordial yet, so there’s a project for me.
And also: Mangajo drinks. Like the Firefly Tonics, these have green tea in and are refreshing.

    Those firefly drinks are worth it for the packaging alone. I’m shallow about beverages. Sorry.
