    I would love the blueberry pom – perf with a shot of vodka! Yum.

  4. Julie says:

    I’d make a cosmo out of the cranberry grapefruit– rimmed with grapefruit sugar!

    I happen to think that the Blueberry Pomegranate would be wonderful on it’s own and insanely good in your basic Pomegranate Martini recipe.

    I’m thirsty now.

    1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
    2 oz. Absolute Citron vodka
    1 oz. Cointreau liquor
    Cup of ice
    Splash of Hansen’s Blueberry Pomegranate Sparkling

    Shaken and poured into your most fabulous martini glasses!

  6. Lisa says:

    OMG!!!! I would be ecstatic to win this giveaway! *fingers crossed!!*

    All of the flavors sound great – but I’m especially drawn to “Valencia Orange” – it sounds so chic!

  7. fiona k. says:

    I think all of these flavors would be great simply mixed with vodka and served on the rocks!

    dragonfruit — because it’s pink, of course!

    cranberry grapefruit and vodka is all you need!

    The Blueberry Pomegranate is to die for. I love this new line of drinks. I would mix the Valencia Orange with some Hennessy VSOP and have a smooth, delish cognac. :)
