Booze Alternative: Franklin & Sons Sicilian Lemonade & English Elderflower

It’s the last of the Franklin & Sons varieties I found in Inverness. I do have a related update, though – I managed to find Franklin & Sons ginger beer in Brewdog in Newcastle last week, so at least I know for definite that the brand can be found outside Inverness!

I couldn’t really taste the elderflower in this one, but it’s a lovely classic lemonade – very refreshing.

Booze Alternative: Franklin & Sons Ginger Beer

Franklin & Sons is a soft drink brand that I hadn’t encountered until my trip to Inverness a few weeks ago. Geth and I found it in every bar and restaurant we went into while we were there, and have not seen it again since. It’s apparently a London brand, so I’ve no idea why I’ve only come across it in the far north of Scotland.

Anyway, I (obviously) tried every flavour, so you’ll be seeing a lot of their drinks in the next wee while.

First up was the ginger beer, because my newfound love for ginger beer meant that this was obviously the one I tried first. It’s got the perfect level of spice! It’s quite sweet too. A really good ginger beer – I just hope I’ll find it closer to home sometime soon.
