Tipping Back One to Many Bon & Viv’s and the Drinkade Cure
By: Sarah Collins
I think any female over the age of 21 has imbibed one too many drinks at a girl’s night that resulted in a full day of recovery as soon as you wake up. I’m a booze blogger with a full time day-job, so I just don’t got time for that! That’s why when Drinkade reached out and asked if I’d be willing to try out their hangover prevention drink, I was excited… skeptical, but excited.
To really put it too the test, I decided to have my girlfriend Mahea over to split a pack of the recently rebranded Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer. I’d seen their new cans at the grocery store several times, and I was eager to give the funky new flavors a try (As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a sucker for anything branded with a mermaid).
Clementine Hibiscus – This was the flavor I was most excited for, so admittedly I set myself up for a bit of disappointment. The clementine was super light and the Hibiscus was a bit too floral for my liking. Probably won’t drink this one again, but it wasn’t terrible.
Cranberry – This ended up being my favorite of the four! It was a good balance between tangy and sweet and was sessionable like a simpler vodka cran. I’ve actually purchased a couple cases of just cranberry since this girl’s night, which is how you know it made an impression.
Grapefruit – I typically enjoy grapefruit flavored things (bring on a pamplemousse La Croix, any day!), but I hate the overly artificial syrup taste that has a tendency to take over. I was pleasantly surprised; this wasn’t super fake tasting, but rather light and pleasant! Would definitely drink this again.
Pear Elderflower – I was fully prepared to hate this one, because I don’t like pear, but this proved that I should always give things a try because I ended up loving it! The combination of pear and elderflower was smooth and refreshing. Would definitely drink this again.
We started our night off by each cracking open a mini bottle of Drinkade, followed by hours of drinking, laughter, YouTube videos and Olive Garden. As my boyfriend DD-ed Mahea home for the night, we blasted Cardi B and fully accepted that we would be waking up the next morning hung-the-heck-over.
Much to my surprise though, I woke up bright, early and feeling great, even venturing to the gym! I nervously texted Mahea and she felt the same. We were really excited about our Drinkade experience and would definitely recommend for others who are hoping to “celebrate tonight, feel great tomorrow.”
