Drink of the Week: Franklin & Sons Sparkling Pink Grapefruit

In 1886, brothers Fredrick and Albert Franklin established Franklin & Brothers, a London-based drinks company inspired by Fredrick’s experiences with the innovative sodas being made in America. The company quickly became known for its ginger beer and eventually expanded its offerings. And today, Franklin & Sons continues to grow its line of sparkling drinks and mixers crafted with natural flavors and ingredients.

The company’s tonic water is featured in our recent tonic taste test, but it’s also known for its creative range of sparkling drinks, including Franklin & Sons Sparkling Pink Grapefruit. Made from a blend of pink grapefruit, lime, and sparkling spring water, it’s a vibrant and subtly bittersweet offering that’s low in sugar and packed with citrusy flavor.

This is a bottle you’ll want to have on hand all summer long for sipping and mixing into cocktails, like a Paloma or the Summer Cup. Find it at Proof No More for $6.99/4-pack.
