If you don't like sugar in your relaxation beverage (who needs a sugar high when they are trying to relax?), then Sippin Syrup "Zero" is an option for you. Using a blend of sucralose and ace-k, they've created a formulation that is a zero calorie and zero sugar rendition of their "Purple" flavor. To that end, it drinks just like diet grape soda with a fairly hefty amount of sweetener and functional flavor at the finish. Functionally, they haven't disclosed the actual amount of each ingredient, but the drink contains B vitamins, chamomile, lavender, valerian root, L-theanine, melatonin, rose hips, hops extract, St John's Wort, skullcap, and kava kava. Designed to be consumed in two servings, the 16 oz. resealable bottle is jet black with a black label. Combine that with some textured white writing and the product has a visual appearance that's reminiscent of Mike's Hard Lemonade. Regardless, it looks kind of stark in comparison to the other flavors that make up the Sippin Syrup line. Overall, a decent product, but it doesn't feel like it's quite there yet.
