Martinelli’s is mostly known for their line of non-alcoholic sparkling ciders. You mostly see Martinelli’s around the holidays. The adults get wine and champagne; the kids get Martinelli’s. But they make other products too, and Sparkling Prickly Passion Lemonade is one of them. It’s a blend of filtered water, sugar, lemon, passion fruit, raspberry & prickly pear juices from concentrate. It’s all-natural and lightly carbonated. It reminds me of San Pellegrino, but with a less intense flavor. I got it because I was intrigued by the prickly pear. You don’t see that many beverages that include prickly pear juice. It kind of gets lost because of all the other fruit juices, but I think I could taste it and I think that I like it. I would get Martinelli’s Sparkling Prickly Passion Lemonade again, but it’s kind of hard to find and I’m not going to go searching for it. If I see it again, I’ll grab a few and hoard them.
