  Yum...an ICE COLD pause...

When I’m not drinking water in this climate I like something with a citrus kind of flavor and both the Angostura Lemon and Lime and the Ginseng Lemon Up fit the bill quite nicely.

Both are manufactured and bottled close by in Trinidad and both beverages are quite popular here.

Unlike here and probably the USA they aren’t a twist off cap so you’ll have to have a plan for opening them…I don’t carry a bottle opener these days and I don’t normally carry a Swiss Army knife. Methods from the “Olden Days” still work today…a lighter, a spoon, a kitchen knife..they all still work.

The Angostura is made by the same company that makes Bitters and has been around since the late 1820’s and is today still used around the World. Bitters is a major component of this beverage and is quite unique and tasty..

Ginseng Up is available in different flavors and as you can tell Ginseng and its medicinal properties is what this product is all about. Lemon Up is my flavor of choice.

If you would like a refreshing drink that doesn’t include alcohol than you probably would enjoy these beverages!

Most corner stores stock them and at most cost $ 12.00 or $15.00 TT Dollars…about $ 2.00 CAD or USA, its a cheap little flavor thrill.
