Spike Your Juice: Turns Juice Into Alcohol
Spike Your Juice was developed by a group of Europeans living in California. Having grown up near wine producing regions, they particularly craved a seasonal drink called “Federweißer”. This drink is only available from early September to late October during harvest time. The original Federweißer is known by many names, depending on what wine region of Germany, Austria or Italy you are in. Transportation of Federweißer over long distances is almost impossible due to the ongoing fermentation process inside the bottles.
Thanks to Spike Your Juice, you can now make your own sparkling beverage all year long at home. Spiking your fruit juice produces a fizzy & refreshing alcoholic beverage. And it's super easy! All it takes is one 64 oz bottle of your favorite juice and one packet of Spike Your Juice with the airlock seal. Then just wait at least 48 hours and enjoy!
I received a Spike Your Juice kit for review, which includes 6 packets of Spike Your Juice, 6 labels, and a rubber stopper with airlock seal. All I had to buy was the juice. I used Cranberry Raspberry juice, since the company recommends grape, cranberry or pomegranate blends for best results.You also want to make sure there is a minimum sugar content of 20g/serving and no artificially sweetened or refrigerated juices. It took less than 5 minutes to Spike!
I like that the kit comes with labels to indicate the flavor and date of Spiking. I also like that you can start sampling the juice after 48 hours and if you want a stronger and dryer taste with increased alcohol content, you can simply re-seal the bottle with the airlock seal and continue storing at room temperature until you're satisfied. You can literally make the drink the way YOU like it!
I tested out my spiked juice after 72 hours. It still tasted sweet but had a champagne-like tingle and wine taste. I re-sealed it so that it will be stronger for Thanksgiving so that all my relatives can enjoy this homemade drink! I love this idea - it's low cost and customizable to your tastes! You can order online at www.SpikeYourJuice.com and make your own homemade beverages for the holidays!
