Wild Poppy - Craft Drinks

As you may know, I can be attracted to a product simply by its packaging and such was the case with Wild Poppy. A single poppy flower on the front of a cleanly designed bottle drew my attention and before I knew it, I was begging for more. Wild Poppy is a brand new craft drink made in small batches with organic fruit bottled in Sonoma County.

The flavors are incredibly unique and will leave you stumped as you try to figure out which one to try first. I'll start with one of my favorites--the Grapefruit Ginger. As pure as it can be, its mix of organic grapefruit and ginger juice will leave you puckering up while enjoying the sweetness of the agave.

The Peach Vanilla was a nice peach puree-based drink with a hint of Madagascar bourbon vanilla and agave.

The Peppermint Lemonade was very fresh, but I just felt a bit like I was consuming peppermint mouthwash while I was drinking it. I think that is only because the peppermint was so fresh and is often used as the flavor for mouthwash, but I found it hard to drink it in between bites. Perhaps this one is better as an after-meal drink!

My absolute favorite was the Blood Orange Chili. It's ripe blood oranges mixed with a hint of habanero peppers is the perfect combination as the spice lingers even after the drink is consumed.  I could seriously drink these all day long.

The Wild Poppy drinks are all-natural, organic, and vegan. They sell for $3-$4 each and are sold in natural and gourmet grocery stores including Whole Foods in California, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, the Midwest, and east coast.  I only hope they make it to my neck of the woods soon because I'm wild about Wild Poppy.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that, in no way, influences my veracious opinion.
