The Weekly Wine Down Returns with Sparkling Ciders!

Beverage, anyone?

I don’t know about you but this week didn’t start so well for me. As I struggled to fight off a terrible cold, life continued at lightning speed around me. Between this cold, a teething 14 month old and two rambunctious preschool boys with two different classroom parties,  I am in need of some serious relaxation this weekend. Luckily I found a sparkling remedy for bringing my stressed-out week to a close: $9.99 custom 6 pack ciders.

That’s right folks, for a mere ten dollars I got 6 different bottles of long-necked sanity to share with you! Since I’m not at all a beer drinker I decided to stick with ciders and spiked beverages. If you’re a fan of drinks like Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Lime-A-Rita’s, or Smirnoff Ice, you’ll enjoy the next-level, more sophisticated tastes of the beverages I’ve selected. 

First up: TRULY Spiked & Sparkling

I’ll start with one of the most unique beverages you’ll find on your grocer’s shelves. Truly Spiked and Sparkling is a gluten-free spiked sparkling water. Cool, right? And at 100 calories and 2 grams of carbs per serving, this pretty little refresher won’t conflict with your healthy lifestyle choices. Hooray!

Truly Spiked and Sparkling Drinks taste like sparkling water but better because, well, they’re spiked. There’s a hint of sweetness and just enough flavor to make it interesting. This seems like a great compromise for anyone who’s trying to cut calories and stay fit. Don’t expect this beverage to be super sweet or full of flavors, it’s not. It’s exactly what it says it is, a fun take on sparkling water. I promise you this, it will satisfy your desire to let loose a little while watching your figure!

If you’re like me and only pretending to watch your figure, then this is a perfect sparkler to mix into a margarita or sangria. Just sayin.

As always, we love you so please drink responsibly.

Next week: Strongbow Gold Apple

Next week we will be trying a hard apple cider by Strongbow. Grab a bottle if you can and join us next week to try it!
