Today's Review: Hooper's Alcoholic Dandelion & Burdock

Excuse the overexposure, I was in a darkened room at the time, but I had to snap a picture of this interesting bottle I spied in the fridge behind the bar. Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer is a firm favourite of mine, but I didn't realise people were taking a shot at other classic fizzy drinks too. This is an alcoholic dandelion & burdock, and there's not much I can say to describe it, other than it's an alcoholic dandelion & burdock. 

It's a good job the bottle informed me this is alcoholic, because it certainly doesn't taste like it. Instead it's a sweet concoction with aniseed-like hints, a dark and fruity mixture that pretty much tastes indistinguishable from non-aloholic dandelion & burdock. While the flavour itself may be an acquired taste, I thought this stuff was delicious, and potentially quite dangerous if I could drink a whole bottle without tasting the alcohol. This is definitely one I'll be adding to my drinks of choice.

My rating: 5/5
