It features 2oz of the brand’s OG-beverage, Kin High Rhode, which is made with key ingredients of Rhodiola Rosea, 5-HTP, and GABA to boost your energy, recharge your social battery, and ease stress.

Simple Shirley Temple Recipe

Your favorite childhood drink is all grown up! Gather up your ingredients: 1oz homemade Grenadine (which requires 2 cups of pomegranate juice, 2 cups sugar and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or 1 teaspoon orange blossom water), 6 oz Original Citrus Fresca and plenty of ice. To make the homemade Grenadine, first combine the ingredients in a sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the edges of the liquid begin to bubble and sugar is fully dissolved – stir slowly and occasionally. DO NOT BOIL. Second, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before bottling. Store in the refrigerator. To finish the drink, pour zero calorie Original Citrus Fresca into a tall glass with plenty of ice. Then top with the chilled Grenadine, stir gently and garnish with orange, lemon and/or lime wedges.
