The pros: If there were a non-alcoholic juice box geared for adults, this would be it. Tolerable at room temperature. Color wise it is very festive. Taste wise there is a lot of spices going on here.
The cons: Straight from the bottle, it feels like it’s missing something. Maybe fruit juice because it’s only 5% juice.
The verdict: For $3.99, this is only decent. However, the suggestions seem good on the bottle, but sadly this lack recipes, which this drink desperately needs. Don’t you worry, this Betty is on it. See the bottom for the concoctions I’ve come up with so far.

Some serving suggestions:
Would I buy this again? While I understand this to be a seasonal item, yes, I would buy this again. It doesn’t taste wonderful on its own as there is very little actual fruit juice in it and it tastes of spice, but as a mixer it wasn’t bad. Here was tonights experiment: Winter Wassail Cocktail. Click on the blue link for the recipe. I’ll try spiced wine tomorrow night.
