Giants By Os Gemeos on Granville Island
Granville Island is a tourist destination populated with specialty shops, food markets and art galleries that’s accessible via a short ferry ride from the Vancouver waterfront. It was there that I stumbled upon this monumental work of public art locked away behind the security fences at Ocean Concrete. I immediately recognized the larger-than-life mural, entitled Giants, as the creation of one of my favorite street artist duos, Brazilian twin brothers Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo a.k.a. Os Gemeos.

Product Review: Frisa Sparkling Botanical Beverages
Healthy Soda: it is a Thing. You might recall my awesome event recap from the 2016 Summer Fancy Food Show, where I met This Handsome Guy at the booth for Frisa Sparkling Botanical Beverages, and was compelled to stop and learn more about this delicious drink. Because, healthy soda; I’m all about it.
I found out that Frisa sparkling botanical beverages are 100% natural, GMO free, gluten free, caffeine free, and are made from the finest ingredients including water sourced exclusively from the Pyrenees (which are a range of mountains in Europe – learning!). But when discussing Frisa’s different flavors, I admit they had me at Elderflower: which is my single favorite ingredient in any cocktail. To sip an elderflower-enhanced, natural sparkling soft drink, surely this was too much goodness for me to resist. I agreed to receive samples of Frisa to try at home and review for this blog. Here are my findings.
Frisa sparkling botanical beverages are newly available in single serving four packs, as seen above, and each 8.45 oz bottle is the ideal size not only for enjoying chilled straight from the bottle, or poured over ice, but also as a base to create a totally kick ass cocktail when mixed with your favorite vodka! Your friends will think you went to a fancy mixology school, or something. And you can lie and say that you did. I’ll never tell.
Frisa beverages are lightly sweetened with a hint of natural cane sugar, and the Elderflower showcases the aromatic, honey-scented flavors of this natural ingredient. This sparkling beverage combines the finest ingredients to embolden the natural subtleties of elderflower — which is the flower of the European elderberry plant, in case you did not know. Its taste is really one of a kind, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
I also received a four-pack of the Black Currant Rosehip variety, which offers a unique flavor profile and combines the boldness of black currant with the botanical notes of rosehip. The result is a beverage unlike any other: light and refreshing with the complexity of its unique ingredients. It tastes like you made it fresh yourself! And look at the gorgeous, ruby-red color: just look at it! You could make cocktails with this uniquely delicious beverage at the holidays and blow people minds.
Frisa Sparkling Botanical Beverages are truly delicious and it is my pleasure to recommend that you also try them for yourself. Find out more about Frisa products, including their latest flavor variety, Ginger Hibiscus, at Frisa Beverages Dot Com!
