The drinks I’m sharing with you today come in 473 mL aluminum cans.
Vodka Sour Grape – This one tastes like sour purple grapes, yum! I really enjoy the taste of this one, it’s not too sweet and not too grape-y either. Don’t get me wrong, I love grapes, they’re one of my favourite fruits. And this really does taste like grapes, but it’s not like a grape explosion in your mouth – if that makes sense. If it tasted any stronger you would not want to enjoy more than one of these, but with this taste I could drink it all day long.
Vodka Sour Raspberry – I love raspberries, and I mean I LOVE raspberries; they’re one of my favourite fruits – even higher than grapes. And I find that this drink tastes just like real raspberries, YUMMY! The only difference is that the tartiness that usually comes with raspberries has been replaced with a sour taste. It actually tastes a lot like a Sour Puss, but at 7% alc./vol. instead of 15%. And like the Vodka Sour Grape it’s not too strong in taste and sweetness.
Whisky Sour – This one has a nice sour lime taste. Like the other two above, it’s not too strong on the sweetness and on the fruity taste either – I find it just perfect.
These all taste like the fruit juices that they’re made with. However, as I mentioned above, it’s not as strong a taste (both in fruitiness and sweetness) as the juices would be by themselves. I find they taste perfect like this because they would be too much if they tasted any stronger. And the sour taste balances out the fruits perfectly. I really enjoyed these drinks and need to get more.
I’m glad that I got introduced to this great Canadian brand! I have more drinks from them to share with you so keep an eye out for more Black Fly coming soon!
