Coca-Cola Signature Mixers - Spicy Notes 02 (Asda) By @Cinabar

I suppose it is hard to gauge the demographic group that Coca-Cola is aimed at. With all the funky flavours we have been lucky enough to get over the last few years (think Mango, Strawberry etc) I would have thought that they focused on a fun market, but this new drink from them looks like a whole new more serious contender. The drink is under a new range and is called Coca-Cola Signature Mixers - Spicy. It even has tasting notes on the side of the bottle. The bottle too is very traditional in shape and packaging and even has a cap lid.
I know this is a mixer but I decide to try it straight. I popped the lid and poured it into a glass, which it only filled three quarters of, this is not a long drink. I gave it a sip and have to say I was very impressed. The base flavour is Coca Cola, but all the botanical flavours were a delight as they mixed in. They are such lovely warming tones in the flavour, chilli yes but mild and it enhances the taste. There is a little lime to bring out the zingy element of the cola, and then those lovely herbal flavours to finish. This is a fantastic drink, it deserves to be enjoyed on its own in my opinion, and it deserves a bigger bottle. There are other flavours in the Coca-Cola Signature Mixers range too, Spicy is just one of them. This drink was impressive, and I’ll be hinting out the others in the hope they are half as good as this. Apparently Coca-Cola can do posh.
