    Blueberry-Pomegranate ! Love both flavors I would like to try it with a 1/4 mixture of Sangria…fruit heaven! :-)

  2. Katie says:

    I would like to try valencia orange. Sounds yummy and refreshing.

  3. Amanda says:

    The cranberry grapefruit sounds awesome! As for a cocktail idea, I’d use the valencia orange along with some vodka. It’s like a screwdriver, but a little lighter because of the sparkling water. We’ve tried this with Izzes in the past, and it sounds like this Sparkling line is a similar product.

  4. Rebecca says:

    The Blueberry Pomegranate sounds delicious. I love anything with pomegranate!

  6. leah zueger says:

  7. Sharon Trimble says:

  9. Joanne Schultz says:

    blueberry pomegranate sounds wonderful

  10. Angela says:

    I know I would LOVE the blueberry pomegranate. I LOVE both fruits and to mix it wiht Absolut Vodka, I just KNOW it would be DELICH!!!!

  11. Caryl A says:

    I would make a playful summer margarita mixing Hansen’s Valencia Orange, lime juice, tequila and a drop Monin’s Blood Orange syrup garnished with a lime and orange rind. The carbonation from the sparkling sleek would create a pop…and the lime-orange combination is quite tasty.

    …and it would make the perfect accompaniment to a Sex and the City Marathon. :)

  12. Rebel Vaughn says:

    great giveaway, the valencia orange sounds really good!

  13. cheryl kelly says:

    yum. Blueberry pomegranate. yummmm…
    I think this one mixed with champagne sounds bubbly blue!!!

  14. Michelle Langer says:

    In the spirit of SATC I immediately thought of the classic (and famous!) Cosmopolitan:
    1 oz vodka
    1/2 oz triple sec
    1/2 oz lime juice
    1/2 oz Hansen’s cranberry grapefruit juice
    Shake vodka, triple sec, lime and Hansen’s juice vigorously in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a martini glass, (optional: garnish with a lime wedge on the rim) and serve.
    Mmmm it doesn’t get any better then that!

  15. adri says:

    Evening! I would really enjoy winning this marvelous contest drawing. The “Valencia
    Orange” flavors sounds the best to me. I would make a “fruit and yogurt ” Smoothie.
    you take two cups of low-fat vanilla yogurt,
    1 cup of frozen blueberries, 3/4 cup of orange juice ( I would use the valencia orange Hansen’s drink ) and 1 frozen banana, cut in chunks. Put all ingredients in a blender and voila! A tropical paradise drink. Thanks,Cindi

  36. Kate says:

    Cranberry grapefruit sounds DELISH! Add a splash of vodka and some ice and you would have a FABLOUS summer cocktail! Please enter me in the give away… it would make my day!!!
