SOBRIETY – Alcohol-free sparkling waters
When it comes to alcohol-free drinking it isn’t always about beer, spirits or wine … in fact mixers, tonics and sparkling waters can be just as important to help enhance the drinking experience (keep an eye out for a dedicated mixer section soon). As such it was with interest that I was kindly sent a box of three different alcohol-free sparkling waters from UK based company SOBRIETY Drinks.
These drinks are perfectly placed for either drinking individually or (if you’re feeling experimental) adding to a non-alcoholic spirit. There are currently three different flavours to try (Pomegranate, Juniper, Rosé) with two new ones coming out later this year (Watermelon, Elderflower). The one I reviewed today was their Rosé concoction.
So, are SOBRIETY waters worth your time? Or are they DFTS (destined for the sink)? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below to find out.
Are Sobriety waters any good?
Well, this certainly had a lot of the elements you would expect to find when drinking an alcohol-free Rosé. You can certainly taste summer berries and strawberry jam and it is nicely carbonated, but for me, it was a bit too sweet. That said, if you are giving up alcohol and looking for a Rosé alternative then this flavoured water is a decent choice. I had this drink with a Thai green curry and it paired pretty well with the spicy Asian flavours.
Aroma & Appearance
As you can see, this drink has a nice, subtle pink Rosé look to it, helping to create an experience of drinking a real glass of Rosé. Actually, the fruity aroma that was released when poured was also pretty authentic helping to enhance the drink.
Each of SOBRIETY’s waters are pretty healthy to drink given they have less than a single calorie in each bottle. They are also gluten and vegan friendly and with no sugar. In addition, the glass they are presented has been made in an environmentally way. It isn’t the easiest drink to find but you can buy it from SOBRIETY’s site or local retailers.
