“An organic non-alcoholic juice drink infused with chili” – the second thing that you see after the name which is written in capital letters – “CALIENTE”. The word caliente in Spanish means warm and the name of this product clearly represents the idea of it. It is not a soft drink, but a refreshing heat. Spicy beverage gives a natural kick which is desirable when drinking alcohol, so it might be very good alternative to it.

“Caliente” has two different flavour combinations – the first one mixture is made with lime, ginger and infusion of chili. The yellow colour associates with the ginger and lime. Straight after opening the bottle you can feel these two ingredients very well. Firstly, the lime sourness reaches your respiratory tract and immediately after that comes spicy ginger aroma. It is quite easy to imagine how the drink will taste like, but after having the first sip of this chili drink, the kick boost comes bigger than expected. Ginger has antioxidant properties and provides bitterness while chili enhances it. All in all, the idea of combining red hot chili, ginger and lime highlights its best features and gives a specific taste to the drink with the warming effect.
The natural red colour of “Caliente” drink reflects cranberries and pomegranates flavours. It is the first thing that is noticed when you take the bottle to your hands.
