With so many great beverages, it was hard to pick, but here's what delighted our taste buds most:
Jennifer Bissonnette - The Bravazzi Hard Italian Sodas are going to be an excellent addition to my summer! My favorite is the Blood Orange flavor. Itís light and refreshing, yet sweet enough to be reminiscent of cracking open a can of orange soda and laying out at the pool. With just the right amount of fizz and it being naturally gluten-free, itís sure to be a summertime staple!
Peter Krivas - When summer comes along, few things are more anticipated than the lush greenery, enjoying the verdant outdoors, and the pungent aromas of blooming flowers. Beer doesn't hurt either. Revolution Brewing has produced something that brings the blooms of summer right to your lips with their Rosa Hibiscus Ale. Refreshing with a perfect amount of flavor from the hibiscus, this is the ideal beer for a warm summer's day.
Stephanie Swearington - I loved the White Claw Black Cherry hard sparkling water. It was crisp and tasty after a day at the beach. There was a hint of black cherry flavor and the bubbles were very light and refreshing.
Nick Dapkus - I always enjoy trying something new while lounging poolside on a nice summer day. Definitely had many good choices to try but for me the standout was the Henryís Hard Sparkling Water Lemon-Lime. I have always enjoyed lemon-lime flavored drinks, and this was no exception.
Jenny Craig-Brown - I am so in love with all of the spiked water products! The Truly, White Claw, Smirnoff, and Henryís Hard Seltzer are all incredible and will be a staple in all of my summer fun. With the lower calories and carbs this is perfect for someone wanting to watch their diet but still have a few cocktails with friends. I am so excited these are finally an option!
Candace Arvin - These spiked sparkling waters are delicious and perfect for summer! At only 110 calories with natural fruit flavor and a hint of alcohol, the Black Cherry flavored White Claw was definitely my favorite. Variety packs are also available so you can try their other flavors like ruby grapefruit, natural lime, or raspberry too! Not to mention itís all natural, low carb and gluten-free, making it the perfect drink to keep you bathing suit ready!
