Yes, soda is evil and full of sugar and makes children and adults obese. But, soda can also calm a roiling stomach and fight nausea. Unfortunately, this sangria does not (you need to drink clear soda, and to only sip it to get those benefits). But, it tastes AWESOME.
With that winning argument, let me tell you about the aforementioned sangria. It’s non-alcoholic, but with the label and the atypical shape of the bottle, underage drinkers can still make adults gasp in horror and shock at first glance, if teens are into that sort of thing.
It’s not overly sweet, more tart; it’s somewhere between the dry bubbles of Pellegrino and Squirt. And the best part: it’s only 79 cents at the 99 cent store — less than a dollar making you holler! Woot!
