Review: Owl’s Brew White and Vine

Announced yesterday as the top cold beverage product at the 2015 Summer Fancy Food Show, White and Vine is the fourth flavor variety for Owl’s Brew. The cocktail mixer is a blend of white tea, pomegranate, lemon peel and watermelon. Here's our take:

Review: Arriba Horchata Original

L.A. Libations has launched an extension of its Arriba brand with a classic-style horchata drink (as well as a coffee-infused version). Unlike the original Arriba product, this one contains no added energy ingredients. It’s milky, sweet, and slightly viscous with a pleasant taste. If it’s horchata flavor that you’re after, this is certainly a pretty good option.

Review: Auriganic

Auriganic is a 100 percent juice beverage that features auricularia auricula (aka wood ear -- an edible fungus). While we appreciate the functional ingredient in this product, we’re not convinced that this is the right approach.

Review: Califia Farms Horchata

Califia Farms recently added a two-SKU line of horchata drinks to its portfolio of dairy alternative, juice and coffee beverages. Made with a base of rice milk and almond milk, the products come in Cinnamon and Vanilla varieties, each packaged in 48 oz. carafes.

Review: Mucho Gazpacho

Mucho Gazpacho produces a three-SKU line of bottled gazpacho drinks, each made with a very clean list of ingredients, including tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet onions, and bell peppers, olive oil, white wine vinegar and salt.

Review: Clearly Kombucha

Based in San Francisco, Clearly Kombucha produces a line of organic raw kombucha that are blended with a hint of juice and also include natural flavors and colors. On the outside, the product has been given a major packaging upgrade since we first saw it a few years back.
