Kitchen Revolution and Reese Fernandez-Ruiz of Rags2Riches in attendance, and was quite surprised they weren't one of the six Astigirl (awesome women) speakers that night. It just goes to show how many amazing women there are in the Philippines.
So after my officemates and I got our yellow hearts, we proceeded to the Liquid Sunshine table to claim our free bottles, of what happened to be organic fruit and vegetable juices. At first I thought, they were going to give some kind of energy drink. Upon further reflection, they could be advertising themselves as an all-natural/organic energy drink.
I think the owner was handing out the juice, but I forgot her name. I can remember faces easily, but I'm so terrible at remembering names.
Anyway, there was a variety of organic concoctions on display. They had Grace (pineapple, cucumber, and ginger), Kindness (beet, cucumber, garlic, and apple), Wonder (malunggay, apple, carrot, and pineapple), and Rapture (orange, carrot, pineapple, and basil), among other flavors.
If I'm not mistaken, Wonder is their best selling juice. I got a bottle of Grace and drank it while having lunch the next day. I got a slight gingery burning sensation each time I put down my bottle after a sip, which was odd (I don't remember ever drinking anything like it) but it was not in any way uncomfortable. It tasted really good and healthy actually.
On the other hand, I saw my officemates passing around the bottle of Kindness during merienda that same day in the hopes someone would be kind enough to finish the drink. The first woman who took a sip really didn't like it at all. However, someone drank the bottle's contents before it reached me, so I really can't comment on the taste.
All of us took "shots" of Wonder that afternoon as well, and boy was it wonderful. No wonder it's their bestseller. We had a bottle of Rapture left in the fridge, but its owner was absent so we might give it a try on Monday.
According to the official website of Liquid Sunshine, their organic juices are always freshly pressed and have a shelf-life of only two to three days. Thus, these juices are made-to-order.
For a minimum order of just three 250-ml bottles you can have Liquid Sunshine delivered to your doorstep on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Each bottle costs only P100 each!
They currently deliver to San Juan, Taguig (the Fort), and some parts of Quezon City.
The menu for the week is posted on their website or sent via email. Here's the contact information of the company:
