Man oh man, blogging can be hard work! Between researching, editing, sourcing, photographing and actually writing posts blogging can take up a whole lot of time. Luckily, about 99% of the bloggers I know absolutely love doing it so the many hours, sleepless nights and cries in winter for terrible lighting become a labour of love. You may think that blogging is all macaroon snacking, prosecco sipping events and a constant barrage of goodie bags and freebies. While some blogging has an element of that, none of that comes from sitting on your butt and not working! There is so much more to blogging behind the scenes than just the show reel you see on Instagram! That’s why I’ve teamed up with Qcucumber this week to help give my favourite bloggers the best refreshment for small break between blogging assignments, work deadlines and photography races … ahem, winter sunlight, you know we all hate you!
Qcucumber are a company that have been going for over ten years. They spotted a gap in the market of soft drinks and ran with it. Cucumber sparkling water. When I received a press release for this product I HAD to get my hands on a sample to see if it really was as it sounded.
The perfect summer tipple, whether it’s paired with alcohol to make a cocktail, or on its own for a deliciously refreshing treat, Qcucumber has everything you’d ever need in a beverage!
So, what does it actually taste like? If you’ve ever come across LoveRosiee before you’ll know I can be a little fussy! So, I was buzzing to see if this was all the hype! And I can confirm that:
YES, this product is everything it promises and so much more!
As soon as I twisted the lid my ears were filled with the bubbling fizz of sparkling water and once the lid was off, my nose was greeted with scents of summer and the all important cucumber!
The fizzy, sweet drink is the perfect cocktail of dry cucumber, refreshing water and sweet sugars. It is one of those really refreshing drinks you can imagine craving when you’re dying from a hangover!
The freshening taste stays with you and leaves a lovely aftertaste, not dissimilar from a good brush of your teeth!
I LOVE the packaging for this product. In this day and age packaging is everything! And Qcucumber deliver! Crisp, clear and simple! You can see this adorning tables of a wedding, Instagram feeds and summer BBQ tables! It is a gorgeously made product and it is clothed in the right gear!
What I love most about this product is its diversity. You could have this for your blog break, between posts and having a chill while watching Pretty Little Liars; or you could sip this tipple after a work out; even better, though, you could mix this gorgeous drink with alcohol to make the most refreshing cocktail. Because of its light and fresh taste, I would match it with a gin or vodka to enhance its flavours and not take anything away from it!
I am really impressed with this drink and think all of my lovely blogger friends should take a well earned break every so often, even if it’s just for five minutes, and take some me-time. Sip on your Qcucumber beverage – spice it up into a cocktail if you want to! And enjoy your work from afar!
