DRY Soda Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to taste several flavors of DRY Soda.About DRY Soda:
"Seattle-based DRY Soda Co. has re-imagined what soda can be: better tasting and better for you. DRY Soda uses only four, all natural ingredients and keeps the pure cane sugar to a minimum. Each twelve-ounce bottle of DRY contains just 45 - 70 calories and 11 - 19 grams of sugar. The result is a less sweet soda that allows its fruit, flower and herbal flavors to shine through. DRY Soda is available in seven distinctive flavors - Lavender, Lemongrass, Blood Orange, Rhubarb, Juniper Berry, Vanilla Bean and Cucumber - each with a unique flavor profile that makes it refreshing to sip on its own, pair with a great meal or mix into the perfect drink.
Drink DRY and rediscover what soda can be."



What we thought: We really enjoyed our sampler of DRY Soda. We tried them alone as well as paired with the suggested spirits and were pleasantly surprised at what great mixers they were. The Blood Orange and the Cucumber were wonderful with vodka and the Vanilla Bean was perfectly paired with spiced rum. They were great as non-alcoholic beverages as well and I really loved that the calorie count was so much lower than regular sodas and the simplicity of the ingredients was really refreshing. The unique bottled drinks from DRY Soda would be perfect for all of your New Year's entertaining needs and they are sure to be a hit with most any crowd. Be sure to check them out when your planning your holiday gathering!! ABCD Diaries gives DRY Soda an A+!
