Ginger Beer With Lime product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWe've crafted this reduced sugar ready-to-drink spritzer to be enjoyed as a dry, thirst quenching refresher. Featuring fermented root ginger with lightly sparkling water and a touch of lime, it is ready to drink and share with a friend. Great with some ice and sometimes a dash of something stronger!

Gently shake to blend natural ginger sediment before drinking. Refrigerate after opening.

Gluten free
Alcohol and preservative free
25% less sugar when compared with traditional full sugar carbonated drinks

What initially attracted me to this product was the size of the bottle. It was big enough for two good sized helpings, and what better drink to serve chilled on a hot day? The ginger and lime fused into one distinct, mild flavour where neither the ginger nor the lime screamed out for attention. I found this a real plus because ginger beer can often be too piquant, leaving a stinging sensation on your tongue and stopping you from drinking it too fast. This product is one you can swig, making it ideal for times when all you want is a nice long drink.

The appearance of the contents was that of a home-made brew. There was a light sediment in the bottom of the bottle, just as you get with a ginger beer you make yourself, and it swirled around when the bottle was moved. The instructions on the label warned you to shake the contents to mix them before drinking; when I did this, the sediment mixed in and the drink promptly took on the cloudy appearance of a true ginger beer. The flavour, too, was mellow, and enhanced by the chilling process.

We had the drink with some enchiladas which I had made previously and retrieved from the freezer because I thought they would go well with the drink. No point in doing a lot of cooking on a hot day when you can be enjoying the sunshine. We both liked the combination as the enchiladas, too, were mildly spicy but they still allowed the ginger and lime to assert themselves. I usually like a cold lager with enchiladas, but this combination was as good if not better.

My companion has a sweet tooth, but she found there was enough sweetness in the mixture to satisfy her sugar addiction - and that is a statement in itself! In view of the fact that this drink contains a lot less sugar that other similar drinks, it is interesting that certain food combinations can make the consumer think they are sweeter than they really are. That is the case here. There is certainly some sugar included, but fermented ginger, like other fermented products, has a natural sweet aftertaste which has translated into the mix. Artificial sweeteners always have an aftertaste which is reminiscent of tin sprinkled with epsom salts, so Barker's decision to use a smaller amount of sugar is a good compromise - better for the teeth, and better for the health generally.
