I have loved the others I’ve tried thus far, but this one is tops. Delightfully bitter with a complex flavor. I had originally been hesitant to try it as I didn’t know what a Saskatoon was, nor what to expect. I love this on the rocks. I will be buying more of this soon! Thank you, FBFW!

Yay! I'm so glad you tried -- and loved -- The Saskatoon.

Luxurious, Complex AF Offerings

The most satisfying alcohol-free cocktails I've tried so far! Not trying to be something they're not (i.e. a one-to-one substitute for alcoholic counterparts), just creating delicious, unique, full-bodied beverages that are incredible in their own right. I've been loving drinking these straight, on the rocks. Once the ice melts a smidge, any edge you get on the first few sips of Saskatoon immediately softens. You're left with a tannic, peppery, and herbal delight unlike anything I've tasted before. I'll absolutely be stocking up on FBFW.

Wow Dana, thanks for the rave review! I'm so pleased that you're a fan of The Saskatoon. When the weather gets colder, be sure to try it mulled. Cheers, Shelley

Complex NA cocktail

The Saskatoon has been the perfect substitute for a glass of red wine or a cocktail. This tastes nothing like wine but has the same depth and complexity that I loved in wine. I made the mulled Saskatoon recipe and it was amazing. I’ve been enjoying nightly with a splash of tonic. I’m so impressed by everything this drink delivers.

Hi Sonya, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and I'm so pleased that The Saskatoon satisfies you in a similar way that wine did!
Cheers to your health,

A very unique taste

I loved these! I bought the Saskatoon and the Smokey. So far, I have mostly drank them neat without mixing too much. I think the saskatoon needs a little bit of something sweet to take off the very obvious, adult edge of the drink. I have tried grenadine (not bad!) and the I tried a little rose wine and that was really good! again not much is needed, maybe 1 ounce of either one. I also tried it with coconut water and it tasted good but that edge was still there. I have shot it before just as is and thats where the edge really shines. I am trying to get away from alcohol by trying to keep the ways of drinking just replacing the poison. I am thrilled to have found this!

Hey M, I'm glad you're a fan & that you're making our drinks your own! Sweetness and dilution are really about personal taste, but it's hard to correct a weak drink, or one that's too sweet. That's why we make FBFW robust and tart—splash in some water, stir in some sweetener. And if you make a fun recipe, tell us about it! #hackourdrinks

New favorite habit

My new favorite habit involves Saskatoon. Upon arriving at my home from a stressful day at work, after putting down my briefcase and making sure the dogs have water and my son is okay, I enjoy a wine glass (or 2) of Saskatoon with a little seltzer. It helps me unwind. The taste is complex and nuanced enough to chill out and enjoy without the alcohol. Thank you For Bitter or Worse !

Tracey, Thanks for sharing how much you enjoy The Saskatoon! Cheers to your healthy and delicious unwinding ritual, Shelley
