Starbucks Refreshers.. At Home?

Those of you who follow my vlogs will be aware of my lime refresher obsession and that I recently placed an international ebay order to procure myself a packet of the “self brew” variety. I’ve only tried that one flavour so I can’t speak for the Hibiscus, orange or strawberry but the lime is AMAZING and made correctly tastes just like the ones you buy in store., fo realz! 1 sachet is supposed to make one big drink.. I wanna say 16oz but correct me if I’m wrong. I have a few plastic starbucks-style beakers with straws that I make mine up in, I split 1 sachet over two cups, top them up with water, stir WELL and chill in the fridge. I leave them for 2 hrs minimum before drinking in a bid to make sure they’re totally dissolved and very cold and so far so good.. Perfect! I just ordered another batch and I was inspired to fire out a quick post for those of you unaware you can buy these. I haven’t found a UK seller but given that I’m getting more out of them than they state they’re still good value for money even with postage. The cheapest seller I have found so far is here if you’re looking for just one pack but if you’re confident you will love them as much as I do then this is a better deal – I just bought this one.

What’s your current obsession? Is it as yummy as mine? (Clue – not possible)

    Try asda high juice citrus and mint squash… It’s not quite the same as the lime refresher I personally prefer the squash! I think with a bit of ice and fresh mint it tastes even better than starbucks!!

    yum! I have been drinking lots of tea lately, I love something I don’t have to add sugar too as I’m trying to cut back on some calories as well 🙂

    I usually get the cool lime after the gym, but I’ve never seen this. Since I got paid today – I guess I’ll pick up a few packages tomorrow :O). Xx

    I’ve got into drinking iced tea recently, I love Starbucks but it is so expensive and it is gutting that the seasonal stuff is seasonal. I did some investigation and posted some recipes for other Starbucks drinks on my blog.
