I learned at the last Gastropod live event at the Museum of Science that Polar is 1) a Massachusetts company, and 2) releases five limited edition flavors every season.
This led me to go looking for this seasons flavors.
(They also have super limited edition flavors sometimes, ie. the infamous “unicorn kisses” but I’m not that crazy.)
I can smell the mango, but I really only taste berries.
Watermelon margarita I like. Strawberry Sunrise… just tastes like some generic fruit to me?
Strong on the pineapple flavor. I decided in the end that I wasn’t into it.
Raspberry Rose just tastes like raspberry to me. Oh well.
Long story short, I suspect I’m drinking the watermelon one all summer. (^_^)
I’m coming down with a cold. meh.
So, all I want right now is is something that is warm, soothes my throat, and is full of things that’s supposed to be good for you. I don’t know why, but I rarely crave orange juice when I’m sick. Apple cider is nice but sometimes it tastes too sweet to me. Grapefruit is on sale at my local markets, so that’s what I brought home.
The problem? I don’t like grapefruit. I very nearly hate it. So why did I come home with grapefruits? To make grapefruit tea! Ok, I guess this is more like a spiced grapefruit cider than tea but the original recipe calls it tea so I’m leaving it like that. The original recipe called for 1 stick cinnamon and 1/2tsp allspice berries for about 2 cups grapefruit juice to be heated on the stove. However, I have a jar of chai masala that I made recently, so I went with that instead. Plus, the black pepper in the chai mix feels nice on my sore throat.
