HotLips Soda

Today I tried HotLips Soda at the Columbia River Coffee Roasters open house party.

It was very tasty. The bottles run around $2.50 each at the store.

Here's some info from their site:

Because HOTLIPS supports local farmers they can stay on their land and farm. Our food is better that way but so is culture, community, land and economy. We have so much to lose if the small farms go away. Not only the delicate, unusual varieties of fresh foods, but the health of land and people, tradition and artistry. We lose habitat, glorious landscape and a sacred relationship to our place. We forfeit the pride and responsibility of stewardship. That’s too big a price.

Throughout the year HOTLIPS captures the tastes of the Pacific Northwest. Early summer strawberries, then raspberries and blueberries. Late summer boysenberries and blackberries. The nights cool, apples and pears ripen. Flavor nuance in HOTLIPS Soda varies from batch to batch depending on the varietal, the heat of the day and cool of the night. Creating Connoisseurs of the young and old, as they compare batches, seasons, years, equalizing food snobs and kids.

What’s your favorite flavor?

Can you love more than one?

Keep an eye out for Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, Apple, Pear, Raspberry, Boysenberry. All available now. More Flavors to Come. We may try cherry, grape (wine varietals) and peach, to name a few.
