The Berry Cassis had the richest, deepest flavor, also a bit like a deep red wine, but lightened by the crispness of the carbonation. Some people take a glass of wine to bed…I took a Mason jar of Cascal . [Wine pairs with apples, right? So why not wine-like soda?]
berry cassis: black currant, tangerine, lemon
The last two flavors were much lighter, and much more like sparkling juice than wine…although the fermentation process does still provide a hint of ‘hmmmm?’ I enjoyed the Bright Citrus alongside leftover vegan enchiladas from Lauren ‘s vegetarian beer pairing dinner , and it proved the perfect counterpart for the spicy, savory dish.
bright citrus: lemongrass, tangerine, pineapple
When told to bring our own drinks to the fall Forage supper club , I chose to bring my last can of Cascal. The Fresh Tropical might not have paired very well with the rest of the meal, or the chilly temperatures, but the taste of it took me to a warmer place, one of paper umbrellas and sunny skies.
fresh tropical: mango, jasmine, kaffir lime
