Back outside, numerous drinks stands competed to give away samples of their wares and sell bottles (in the case of non-alchoholic) or glasses (in the case of alcholic) of drinks. Juice Republic was sampling a fine "fresh" orange juice. Innocent had a whole tent to itself, and I'm still a big fan of almost everything of theirs I've tried. Firefly's Lemon-Lime-Ginger detox was thin and watery, but clearly tasted of the right elements - it erred on the side of medicinal. Thorncraft cordials pink ginger tastes of most of what I like about ginger beer, but less substantially so; I wouldn't go out of my way for it. Quinn's fermented fruit drink wasn't particularly inspiring either.** AdeZ's Orange & Peach fruit juice and soya blend tasted exactly like an orange creamsicle*, which was much better than their too-sweet and rather floral Mango & Apricot blend. A cool limoncello sip was exactly what the afternoon needed, and we were promptly sold on a bottle of it from Meloncello.
And that's quite enough about the Taste of London.
* Although apparently Brits don't know what an orange creamsicle is.
** In what way is a it a world first that they're selling fermented fruit drink?
