I don’t know about you but I absolutely love all of the national days and months! I feel as though its only relatively recently that people have begun to pay attention to them, but I think they’re a great excuse to appreciate and enjoy every day things. This month, November, is national pomegranate month. To celebrate, Palm PR kindly sent me two Ibiza Ice sparkling fruit wines to try out, in the flavours lychee and obviously– pomegranate!
I was so pleased to receive these because I absolutely love both lychee and pomegranate! I enjoy the odd (sweet) white wine or rosé, so these products were definitely something that I was interested to try and I’m pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed!
Firstly, I’m a little bit in love with the Ibiza Ice aluminium bottles because they’re sustainable, 100% recyclable, and they kept the drinks cold even though I forgot to put them in the fridge! My first thought was how handy this packaging is for travel! Off to a festival or fancy a celebratory drink on the train on the way to the city with the girls? These would be absolutely perfect. They’re not glass so there’s no worry of breakages, and they look much more high end than some of the cocktail bags that you can buy! Plus, these are designed so that you can easily drink them straight from the bottle.
I enjoyed mine as recommended by Ibiza Ice. The Lychee one I meddled with lime and mint, and the pomegranate one I served with actual pomegranate. When served in a wine glass in this way I thought that they looked really lovely and perfect for a weekend drink at home. I appreciate that these drinks wouldn’t be to everyones taste but if you’re a fan of sweeter wines or fruity cocktails then they’re for you! They’re also only 60 cals per 100 mls and are made with all natural fruit (that means no nasty artificial additives or flavourings).
What really surprised me though, is the price of these drinks, which retail for £2.19 each (or cheaper if you buy in bulk) at Drink Supermarket. For the natural product you’re receiving, and the high quality packaging I think that the pricing of these is more than fair. Overall I was impressed and will definitely be keeping Ibiza Ice in mind for the future (especially for travel or in the new year when the weather gets a little warmer as they’re so refreshing).
If anyone else has tried Ibiza Ice or any similar drinks then I’d love to hear what you think of them in the comments!
