Now that May is officially here, I know summer is right around the corner. Especially when we have beautiful weekends like this with 70-80 degree highs! Love it! I look forward to many more warm days full of family walks, runs on the trails, bags tournaments (or cornhole, depending on where you are from) and backyard BBQs and campfires with cocktails (now that I can finally have them again- woo hoo!)
I don’t know about you, but I am not a beer drinker. The smell and taste just aren’t appealing to me. (Although there is one beer out there I can tolerate—it’s a “root beer” beer and doesn’t even taste like beer, which is why I probably liked it!) Luckily, that leaves more beer for the husband to enjoy. But what do I like? Fruity cocktails. All the way.
I was intrigued to try a new product: Palm Breeze. It’s a sparkling malt flavored beverage and actually says it is a “flavored beer” on the can. I was skeptical at first, but the Ruby Red Citrus flavor sounded really appealing to me so I decided to give it a shot. (They also have a Pineapple Mandarin Orange flavor, too.)
Much to my surprise, it is light and refreshing and not overly sweet. It smells fruity and has a light citrus taste to it. And no bitter beer-like aftertaste from the malt! Victory! It really was quite tasty and reminded me of a fruity club soda cocktail or citrus soda concoction.
And if you are on Weight Watchers, these clock in at 7 PointsPlus per can. A bit high, but nearly all cocktails are high in points so take it what for what it’s worth. It’s definitely special treat!
I’m so glad I found a new, tasty drink for the summer to enjoy and share with friends & family! And it’s a lot easier to prep than a typical cocktail that I would drink. All I do is crack one open and enjoy- no fuss about it! (Of course, you can add some other things to it to spice it up a bit, but I loved it on its own!) Next time you are at the grocery store, pick up a six-pack and give it a shot—I think you’ll like it!
PS- Palm Breeze is hosting a Girls’ Night Out where you and your girlfriends can be pampered with free beach style blowouts, tasty hors d’oeuvres and Palm Breeze drinks in San Diego, DC, Austin and Dallas. If you live in these cities, be sure to check it out!

How could I forget about root beer?! That is the only beer I can tolerate too! ;)
Isn’t it the best?! Whoever invented that was a genius…I’m convinced.
