The Original New York Seltzer in my Fridge at this very moment

Yesterday I was greeted with a treat years in the making upon coming home.  What you are seeing are new bottles of The Original New York Seltzer.  I scored 12 bottles of my two favorite flavors and was thrilled to dive into them.  At this point I have tried a bottle of each but am constantly tempted to guzzle down the rest.

For those of you not in the know this is one of the best beverages to come out of the 80's.  It's a seltzer that is light and crisp with fantastic full and complex flavor.  From the photos below you will see it is clear focusing on its seltzer water appearance rather than going after a soda appeal.  It drinks very clean!  Its a drink that best chilled but not diluted, shaken with ice not stirred.  The nearest comparison is going to be Clearly Canadian or one of those flavored waters they are selling at the grocery store.

For those of you who remember ONYS this is the real Mc'coy.  The taste is unchanged from the 80's.  Even the packaging is unchanged.  The caps have the same perforated tabs.  The is the same strange paper label that was so rewarding to tear off.  This is truly a perfect recreation of the product you know and love.  The flavors are exactly the same and that is a wonderful thing!

You are going to want to go to to pick up a case for yourself or wait until it hits stores in June.
