This is lovely. So refreshing on a hot day. And even better r with a bit of gin thrown in as well. THANK YOU for the free sample. Have now ordered more of this and also the root beer for my dad.

Refreshing treat on a hot day. Thank you for the sample - its not something I would have usually chosen - so it was a lovely surprise and we loved drinking this with still water and lots of ice.

You're very welcome, Lois - we're so pleased to hear how much you loved (and were pleasantly surprised by) this free sample! Definitely the perfect thing for this hot weather!
