Corona brewer Constellation Brands and Coca-Cola are teaming up to launch Fresca Mixed, a spirit-based cocktail, later this year. Fresca is the second non-alcoholic drink owned by Coke to be turned into a spiked version. The first was Topo Chico. Fresca Mixed appears to be based on the sparkling citrus soda water (not the soft drink) as it has zero calories and no sugar - often used as a cocktail mixer - so they say it’s an optimal choice as an RTD. No word on how many flavors will be released or an exact release date yet https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/06/coca-cola-and-constellation-brands-team-up-to-create-alcoholic-fresca-cocktails.html

And what are people drinking across the land of milk and honey - well apparently beer. But with thousands of craft beer companies scattered across the states, what should you be drinking? Porch Drinking tries to answer that with their list of select micro-breweries from each state. They don’t claim it’s a ‘Best of’ (which is a relief) https://www.porchdrinking.com/articles/2021/12/31/craft-beer-across-america-50-beers-from-50-states/

And if you’re a wine drinker, but looking for an alcohol-free option for Dry January - or just the occasional beverage without alcohol - then a list of Rosés might be for you. Most of the bottles recommended are $20 - so not cheap. But they also give you options that are acceptable and some to steer clear of! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/20/dining/drinks/nonalcoholic-sparkling-roses.html

Next time:
Some beers to put on your list for the upcoming beer can appreciation day on January 24th (it’s good to plan early, right?), and well wade into some whiskeys
