Blood Orange Grapefruit and Vodka Cocktail

Posted by on Tuesday, 10 July, 2012

This little cocktail recipe is too good to pass up. If you can actually find Blood Orange juice then you can make this refreshing cocktail!

1 Shot of Vodka
1/2 Can of Grapefruit soda
1/2 Cup of Blood Orange juice

Add ice.

This makes a fantastic summertime drink! It goes down real easy.  Also, I found my Blood Orange Juice in a health food store. Which sounds weird seeing how I’m using the Blood Orange Juice as a liquor drink and NOT for it’s health benefits… whoops :/

Zevia Lemon Lime Twist Soda

Posted by on Friday, 15 July, 2011

Moving on down the Zevia line we tried the Lemon Lime Twist one. Back in the day I used to be a Sprite fan and since I don’t like drinking sodas full of funky junk I never get a change to drink my lemon lime soda. I’m not saying the organic soda, natural sodas or stevia infused sodas are totally healthy buuuut, I do believe that they are a much, MUCH better alternative.

Check out the ingredients in Sprite: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural flavors, sodium citrate and sodium benzoate. But when you have other, … Read the rest

Zevia All Natural Black Cherry Soda

Posted by on Wednesday, 11 May, 2011

Who wants a no sugar, caffeine-free soda that still tastes great? Only in your dreams, right? Wrong! There’s this hot little natural soda floatin’ around called Zevia. It’s sweetened with the Stevia Extract and not real sugar. WTF is stevia? Well, Stevia is a South American herb that has been used as a sweetener by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay for hundreds of years. Give or take a year or two. Supposedly, the leaves of this small, green Stevia rebaudiana plant can be up to 30 times sweeter than sugar. Because this soda is blessed with stevia and not … Read the rest

Reed’s All Natural Cherry Ginger Brew Ale

Posted by on Friday, 25 March, 2011

I love Reed’s Original Ginger Brew Ale. I love it so much that I don’t even call it soda, I call it Reed’s. It usually goes like this: a friend asks for a soda and I say I don’t have any soda, but I have a Reed’s.

I like Reed’s Ginger Ale for the fact that it’s not full of garbage. Just natural heavenly good stuff that makes a mean ginger brew. So I decided to try out their Cherry Ginger Brew Ale. And I have to say, it’s only okay. Don’t get me wrong, it is still waaaay … Read the rest

Blue Sky Natural Soda Jamaican Ginger Ale

Posted by on Wednesday, 9 March, 2011

I may be a little of a ginger ale snob since I got hooked on Reed’s but I thought I would give Blue Sky a try seeing how I like some of their other sodas. And I’m sorry I did. Blue Sky Natural Soda Jamaican Ginger Ale is so freakin’ sugary tasting that you can hardly enjoy the ginger part. It’s not that added so much more sugar to this soda but the proportions are waaaaayy off.

The ingredients are: Filtered Carbonated H2O, Real Sugar, Natural Ginger Flavor, Citric Acid and Carmel Color.

The ingredients for Reed’s are: Sparkling filtered … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Orange Mango Sparkling Beverage Soda

Posted by on Tuesday, 11 January, 2011

It’s Santa Cruz Time! Woo Hoo!  Man, oh man I do love this brand of bubbly pop.  I just think the company is on the right track, you know.  Read about their environmental commitment here. Aside from the goodness that they try to do I really like the ingredients they use for soda.  I know, I know, why drink soda if it’s so bad for you.  Well, you know what?  I’m not perfect.  There I said it.  Sometimes I crave a soda like nothin’ else.  So I try to at least put the better bad stuff in my body.  Call … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Mango Lemonade Sparkling Soda

Posted by on Tuesday, 12 October, 2010

Have I ever told you that I love Santa Cruz’s products?  No?  Instead of a long speech on all things Santa Cruz, I can do it in two words:  Organic. Environment Friendly.  Okay, so that was three, but still, I kept it pretty short and to the point.  Santa Cruz is a green company that produces organic juices, sodas, peanut butter, fruit sauces, dessert toppings and I’m sure more items in the future.  To check out more about this incredible green machine of a company click here.

Now, onto their Mango Lemonade Sparkling Soda.  I believe this is a … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Lime Sparkling Soda

Posted by on Wednesday, 19 May, 2010

It’s soda time again,  get excited!  I’ve decided to move down the Santa Cruz line, seeing how they offer more than a few choices to pick from AND my grocery store always has them in stock.  I’ve already tried the organic root beer and I did like it, it just wasn’t my favorite.  Time to see what else Santa Cruz has for me.  Next up was their organic lemon lime soda.  I’m not the biggest fan of lemon/lime stuff but I was curious.  So why was I insisting on trying this next?  Well, the monkey on mu back, one … Read the rest
