Overall Impression

This one was not my favorite. I found the basil to be a bit overpowering. I could not help but think of tomato basil marinara sauce while drinking it, not in a good way. I will say that I am not a huge fan of overly vegetal flavors, so please take my opinion with a grain of salt and try it on for size. I will say that I love the packaging of this product. It has cheeky phrases on each can, like “Want to wake up with a misspelled face tattoo? NOPE.” I am anxious to try the other offerings from this woman-owned brand to see if I can find something that fits my pallet.

Nope

Chicago commuter train addition*

*On a recent trip to Chicago, I visited the amazing Bendicion Dry Bar and bought a bunch of RTD cocktails that I could not wait to open. So I tested them on the commuter train that night on my way back to the burbs where I was staying. Stay tuned for the upcoming  on my trip!
