Review: Shloer


I am a soft-drinkaholic and cannot get enough of the fizz so I was very excited when I was sent a couple of bottles of Shloer to review on Chic Geek Diary. Shloer is "best served shared" but I didn't tell my Mr that! 


Shloer is THE sparkling juice drink for any and all occasions. For a light refreshment on a busy day to served as a treat at parties.  It contains no preservaties, artificial colours, sweeteners or flavours. With a blend of the best quality juices and the freshest of water, it's no wonder Shloer is the creme de la creme of soft drinks.

I absoloutely loved Shloer. It's light, tasty and refreshing which makes a nice change from your usual bog standard can of pop. I also enjoy it as a substitute for an alcoholic beverage! I currently don't drink and when the other half is having a beer I pour a little Shloer into a wine glass and it feels like I'm no longer missing out!  

There are also some great non alcoholic and alcoholic recipe's you can try too!
Here are a couple of my favourites..



Non Alcoholic Cocktails


Cosmo:

 

75ml Shloer White Grape, Raspberry & Cranberry
50ml Shloer Red Grape

"For a great girlie night in this non-alcoholic version of the Sex and the City classic will treat your taste buds to Shloer White Grape, Raspberry & Cranberry and a sparkle of Shloer Red Grape. Shake well with freshly squeezed orange and lime juice, then strain and serve in a martini glass and garnish with flamb├ęd orange zest and grapes."
