For those of you who don’t already know, Sofi Spritz is an Australian brand of alcoholic drinks inspired by European apéritifs. Sofi Spritz is a modern Australian brand with a Mediterranean heritage.
Established in Sydney at the Bondi Farmers Market about 4 years ago, through crowd-funding on the website Pozible, Sofi Spritz is now stocked in large stores like Dan Murphy’s.
Sofi produces its drinks with locally sourced ingredients and premium quality Australian wines.
They recently created a French range which is only available through the Pozible site.
They have already attained their objective of $10,000 but there are only 6 more days to secure your Sofi Spritz limited edition French range. They have called it the Cocktail Taste Test Tour de France.
The French range is made up of three different flavours inspired by France:
LIMITED EDITION 1 – wild berries and pomegranate
This recipe is inspired by the kir royal, a French cocktail made up of crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) and topped with champagne. For their version of this French classic, Sofi Spritz have added a variety of other wild berries to the blackberries. To balance out the sugar of the berries, they have added a healthy dose of pomegranate.
Limited edition 2 – Pink grapefruit and lavender
Pink grapefruit liqueur is often added to kir cocktails. To balance out the tartness of the pink grapefruit, Sofi Spritz have added lavender, which adds a wonderful fragrance but also a subtle sweetness, which counterbalances the pink grapefruit.
LIMITED EDITION 3 – WILD STRAWBERRY AND FINGER LIME
Instead of the blackberries in the kir royal, Sofi Spirtz have experimented with the recipe, instead using wild strawberry. Lime is often a popular choice to balance out strawberries, but they wanted to do something different. So they have used the typically Australian finger lime. The result is a refreshing and very moreish drink!
By purchasing these products via Pozible, you get the chance to vote for your favourite flavour. The one with the most votes will eventually be made available in stores.
The cities in which more than 10 people purchase via Pozible, will have a Sofi Spritz party in the theme of Italy v France in Sofi Spritz’s favourite venue. These parties will only be open to those who have purchased via Pozible.
And, in giving your opinion on the range, you will also be entered into a draw to win a trip to France.
