Delicious Sparkling Temperance Drinks

Lífrænt Orkudrykkur



330 mL bottle

3.25 g sugar / oz.



Opening the bottle, it smells sour like lemons and vinegar. What will it taste like? I have no idea because I can't read the Icelandic description on the label!

Yes, citrusy, but not so much like a lemon as like a bitter astringent orange? Now its so vinegary that it's burning my throat. Not a very pleasant drink, truthfully it's like the sour stomach aftertaste of vomit. Ugh! Perhaps this drink is pre-digested for people in too much of a hurry? What is this?

Okay, now after looking up a translation of the Icelandic words on the label I see it's an energy drink! I really had no clue what this drink was from the picture on the label. A heart made out of crystals?

The taste is a little like a kombucha tea: fermented and sour with the usual energy drink Smarties candy aftertaste. If I had known this was an energy drink I would have known not to drink it before going to bed!
