Festive Drinking with Fruitbroo

Fruitbroo had been causing a fair bit of intrigue in my little mind for a while after during the Autumn months I saw it popping up on twitter and instagram feeds everywhere. I did a little research and discovered WHAT it was…tasty fruity, spicy drinks that make a nice change to tea or coffee…add a tsp or two to hot water and away you go, but I was still intrigued, more so by the amazing sounding range of flavours.
I was contacted by Fruitbroo and offered some samples of a couple of the flavours which I willingly accepted.
As you can see I was sent the Rhubarb, Apple & Cinnamon Flavour as well as the Apple & Ginger Spice, both festively decked out with their little gift tags.
These gift tags play a part in the “12 days of Fruitbroo” which works as follows;

Every day for the 12 Days of Christmas, we will be giving one lucky FruitBroo customer
a gift when they purchase from shop.fruitbroo.com.
We have lots of goodies under our Christmas tree and we will be tweeting with the
#FruitBrooGaveToMe    each    day    to    let    you    know    what’s    up    for    grabs.
You will automatically be entered and be in with a chance of winning the gift of the
day by placing an order online at shop.fruitbroo.com.
Each bottle of FruitBroo sold during the promotional period between the 1st and 12th
of December will be gift tagged, so if you wish you can pop them into your families
stockings, works Secret Santa or your Bessies Christmas hamper.
I guess though, before you go placing orders you’re going to want to know how they taste!
Well, I passed the Apple & Ginger Spice on to my Grandad as he is more of a ginger fan than I am. He’s also rather fussy when it comes to drinks and so it’s a real tribute to how good fruitbroo is that his review was so glowing:
“It was a pleasant surprise to find a hot drink so easy to prepare. A little syrup in a cup, some hot water and a quick stir and it’s ready- no messy tea bags to dispose of. The taste was also a pleasing surprise with the predominant spice apple enlivened by a hint of ginger”.
Trust me, he’s never so complimentary about any drink I make him!
I sample the Rhubarb, Apple & Cinnamon flavour and was first struck with how much it smelt like Christmas. I’m a lover of herbal teas but often find them bland so this was a really good alternative and so convinient. It’ll be perfect to stop my coffee guzzling habits when I’m back at work! The flavours really come through and it really is so simple to make. I added 1tsp of syrup to my drink but you can add a second one for a stronger taste. It’s also a great alternative to sugary hot squashes (another work favourite) coming in at 15kcal a cup.
Both of these would be perfect to serve at Christmas gatherings as a non-alcoholic warming drink. They’d also make fantastic presents. I know I wouldn’t say no to a bottle or two under the tree.
I can’t wait to try some of the other flavours. Grandad has put in a request for the Elderflower & Lime and I have my eye on the Peach, Pear & Honey.
Have you tried Fruitbroo yet? Which flavours were your favourite if so…
I can’t express how much I love this brand, especially as they are based in Bristol too. If it comes from Bristol, I’m generally a fan (until it comes to football that is)
