Big Storm Blackberry Vodka Soda Delivers a Berry Authentic Flavor Experience

Big Storm Blackberry Vodka Soda— Do you remember visiting your grandparents after you turned 21? While drinking with youthful friends sometimes involves copious amounts of beer and liquor, having a drink with your grandparents tends to be a far more refined activity. Take for instance blackberry brandy. None of your friends likely favored brandies over beer. But thanks to your grandparents, perhaps you learned to appreciate the sophisticated flavor of blackberry infused cocktails. Blackberry is not an overly sweet flavor by nature, nor is it typically presented that way in its liquor form. It is subtly flavorful with just the right hint of sweet, natural sugars. You can now enjoy those same polished tones of real blackberries in a convenient canned cocktail with Big Storm Blackberry Vodka Soda.
