Made with certified organic ingredients, no artificial flavors/colors/preservatives, lightweight glass bottles, and packaged in 75% post-consumer recycled cases (whew!), this is high-end, eco-friendly cocktailery, complete with a Sanskrit “Om” trinket attached to the bottle’s neck.
For all of that buildup, what’s inside the bottle is a bit of a letdown. A blend of cranberry and orange juices (plus color and sweetness courtesy of black currant, black carrot, and apple juices), the potion offers a nose that’s perfumy and a little nutty, surprisingly exotic for a cocktail like this. But the body doesn’t really back that up. Here things get very sweet, and very fruity — much like any old sweetened cran-whatever juice blend spiked with a little vodka. Hardly unpalatable — just come in expecting a typical happy hour cosmo and you’ll at least be pleasantly surprised with the results.
