We were on the weekly grocery shopping trip, when we spotted a huge display of a new Martinelli’s flavor… Sparkling Lemonade! We are big fans of their sparkling apple cider, so we picked up a bottle out of curiosity. I’ve been on a big lemonade kick lately. It reminds me of summer. This lemonade was not quite summer. More like one of those unusually warm spring days where you pick up a basket of strawberries only to realize they are not quite in season yet. It’s tasty, but not quite the full flavor I was looking for. It just wasn’t… lemon-y enough. However, the remainder of the bottle did make a good bubbly margarita mixer, so that’s got to count for something, right?
Personally, I’m going to stick with not-quite-a-soda sugary sweetness of Minute Maid lemonade and stick to apple cider when it comes to Martinelli’s.
