I Tried the Buzzy, Non-Alcoholic Drink Backed by Bella Hadid, and This Is My Honest Review
Full disclosure, I'm severely allergic to alcohol. My Asian heritage contributes to this, and the truth is, if I have even a few sips of wine, beer, champs, or liquor, my heart starts racing (not in a good way) and it feels like I can't breathe. It's uncomfortable, to say the least, so I avoid it at all costs — and I'm not mad about it, actually. When you eliminate alcohol, you win in so many other ways.
You save money, calories, and embarrassing moments — and I always feel completely comfortable in my own skin, no matter my surroundings. I have no clue what it feels like to be buzzed, so when I first learned of Kin Euphorics, the new, non-alcoholic beverage packed with natural adaptogens and botanicals that claim to enhance focus, creativity, and inspire overall good vibes, I was excited to give it a swig.
The verdict? It's good. And long overdue.
Sure, I've stayed plenty hydrated with water (sparkling and still, I like them both), mocktails, and unsweetened iced tea at countless cocktail parties, celebrations, bachelorette parties, and the like; but I'll be honest, those options get a little dull over time. Now that Kin is causing a stir in the beverage world, and cool girl Bella Hadid is co-founder of the brand, I finally feel seen. This is the happy drink that we never knew we needed.
"Kin Euphorics was born from the minds of spirited creators, fearless mixologists, and lifelong learners. Individuals devoted to the betterment of allkind," reads the company website.
I'm here for it.
Lightwave has sparkling notes of lavender, passionflower, and vanilla to mellow you out in a subtly soothing way. If you can't decide which flavor best suits you, you can always pick up a sampler pack (or two) to cater to your mood at any given time.
Maybe I'm a bit biased, but these bubbly beverages really do make me happy. Cheers to natural energy and many more booze-free drinks that we can all enjoy.
