Normally Mojito flavoured drinks fill me with dread. They tend to be sickly and downright weird! That lime and mint combo just does nothing for me. But, this one was surprisingly ok. Only ok mind, especially given the high cost of this drink. It’s aimed at the gym going population with added BCAAs to help with that all important protein absorption, and is of course low in calories.
I reckon Mojito flavoured drinks must be quite popular in Eastern Europe or something because whenever you find a Polish brand, there’s usually a Mojito mix in the offering. I personally find the minty limey twang a little too sickly so I don’t look forward to trying these ones, but needs must and all that. Mojitos need alcohol, that’s what the mint and lime is there to mask the flavour of. Without alcohol, it’s just weird!
This is the second mojito flavoured drink I’ve discovered, the first being ‘Black – Mojito’. Red Rooster have managed to do it properly though. Black Mojito suffered from the small problem of tasting nasty, I think they may have over minted their mix. You can still taste mint in Red Rooster Mojito, but it’s tempered somewhat and the sweetness from the lime is main flavour.
