If we're not friends on IG, you might not know that I take rating alcohol [and other treats] very seriously. I try to find as many things as I can and give an honest [albeit colorful] review. I HAD to try the viral jelly/jam drink.
You should thank me, though. I've taken the bullet so that you can dodge it.
I will acknowledge that maybe there are some variables that could affect this. Maybe preservatives aren't the way to go vs a jelly. Maybe having LaCroix branded sparkling water is important [though I doubt it]. Maybe I have a terrible shaking and stirring method and zero patience.
Still... on the first try... this tasted like a bland tequila seltzer... as if there was no jelly in it at all. It's just there to look disgusting at the bottom of your glass. I'll pass.
