Thirsty Thursday: Spike Your Juice Review

Today's Thirsty Thursday is a bit different. We were sent a sample kit from Spike Your Juice to review their process of turning ones juice into alcohol. We were pretty excited once we got this package.

To get started you need a 64 oz bottle of your favorite juice. They recommend either Oceans Spray or Welch's and they also recommended on the box that it be either a grape cranberry or pomegranate juice for the best results. We went with grape Ocean Spray. The process was pretty easy. We just poured the packet into the juice without stirring  it, threw away the original cap the juice came with and filled the airlock cap with water til the "fill line," which in my opinion was a bit hard to find. I think it would be better if this was a black line so that it's easier to know when you need to stop.

Once that's done you put the airlock cap on and wait for 48 hours. That's it. It should be turned into alcohol within two days minimum. The package also came with sticky labels to put over the original juice label, which is a great idea when you have kids in the house. The waiting process was exciting and when the 48 hours were up Sarah and I tried it, thought it was getting good, but if we waited another day it would be even better. So we waited another day and that night all four of us girls got together for a Girls Night In to try the now Spiked Juice.

I have to say it was pretty good. It had a bubbly champagne taste to it, it wasn't too strong and over powering so we didn't have to mix it with anything. We just put it in wine glasses and served chilled. We all definitely had a great time with trying this product. Feel free to check out this video from their website that shows you a tutorial on how to use their product.


Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received sample of the Spike Your kit at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
