A few months ago, someone from Spike Your Juice™ asked if I wanted to try one of their kits. A kit that she said would transform the wholesome all-natural juice of my choice into fizzalicious boozy booze.
So, in the name of science and for the good of the land, I said, “Hell yeah!”
The process is simple. Pick up a 64-ounce bottle of your favorite all-natural juice (I chose a store-brand, ultra-cheap White Grape-Peach), pour the magical Spike Your Juice™ powder inside (it’s yeast, organic evaporated cane juice and an emulsifier), and seal it with an airlock and rubber stopper for at least 48 hours. Go, Science!
After the 48-hour wait, you taste it. If you like the flavor, you can seal it with the rubber stopper and chill it in the fridge. If you’d like something stronger, drier and tarter, reseal the bottle and keep waiting and sampling.
How does it taste? Really bright, fruity and fizzy, like a sparkling wine.
The kit might sound a little gimmicky, but it was developed by European expats living in California who were craving their homeland’s Federweisser – a “new wine” made only in September and October out of fresh grapes. It’s sold while the grape juice is still fermenting, so it’s meant to be enjoyed immediately if not sooner – not stored.
Ready to make your own sparkling pomegranate, cranberry, grape or other juice?
These kits sell for about $10 each at SpikeYourJuice.com, but you can win one here!
The kit includes:
- 6 packets (enough for six 64-ounce bottles of juice)
- 6 bottle labels (for clearly marking your spiked juice, as well as the date)
- 1 airlock
- 1 rubber stopper
- Instructions and recipes (e.g. Spike Sangria, Spike Fireside, Spike Ice Cubes)

Royal Pains. Is that trashy? Probably not, but it is summery. :) And it does have cheese factor.
This sounds like so much fun! I love food projects and have made my own soda and beer, so this is right up my alley!
Oooo! I blogged about Spike Your Juice a while back! See:
I wanna win! Favorite trashy summer TV show? Jersey Shore fo sho!
Pretty Little Liars. So trashy! Yet so addictive! ;)
I totally got hooked on "American's Got Talent" one summer! I don't know if people would call it "trashy," but regardless, it's pretty ridiculous! And I LOVED it!
I got into Tosh.0 this summer, and watched a bunch in a row OnDemand. It's not my normal brand of humor, but I can't stop. Dude is hilarious and likeable, even when he's raunchy.
I hate to admit that I loved watching The Bachelorette. Don't tell anyone though… :)
The horrrrible Real Housewives of New Jersey. I just started watching it last weekend and am hooked! And ashamed!
This summer I've gotten into the Real Housewives. I started with Orange County…then New York, then New Jersey…and now most likely DC. Trashy TV…yes. Entertaining?…yes :P
I've been watching Teen Mom. EXCELLENT birth control, and I'm 26 :)
Hands down, it has GOT to be the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Bancrupcy, hair pulling, and general trashiness galore!
I like Persons Unknown and Pretty Little Liars. I love trashy summer shows. They keep it interesting.
PERSONS UNKNOWN! Oh, do I love that….
I'm going to have to go with "Drop Dead Diva" and "Losing it with Jillian". I can't believe I just said that (or wrote that) out loud.
Put me down as a second for Tosh.0, and it's so not my humor. I spend most of the episode alternating between laughing and shaking my head saying "that's just not right".
Love me some Bad Girls. LOL
Booze from juice! Brilliant!
As for trashy TV…I can't help myself from watching America's Next Top Model reruns. Yipes!
Holy awesome! I think True Blood is pretty dang trashy. Trashy and awesome.
All hail Wipeout! The perfect summer show! I totally want to try this stuff too!
Burn Notice, baby. And True Blood.
Nothing has caught my eye yet this summer… but i AM watching the first season of Mad Men from Netflix! 6 episodes in and I love it!
The bachelorette for sure!
Ummm………….. "Jersey Shore". I swore up and down that I would never watch it and give them the satisfaction of another viewer, but each time I see it, I can't pull my eyes away, like watching a horrible car wreck. I think the real attraction is that it makes me feel infinitely better about myself and everyone I know! :-)
That sounds way awesome! I love trashy tv and my favorite is the Jersey Shore (also Teen Mom!). Me & Snooks wanna sip some of this!
losing it with jillian is about as trashy as it gets for me. at least until fall, when i watch the biggest loser with a pint of ice cream. sounds horrible, but incentive for already losing the weight :)
Degrassi: The Next Generation.. I don't even have any kids to blame it on..
I don't really have a trashy summer vice except Mad Men, Entourage and Hung On Demand.
whoa whoa whoa, Mad Men isn't trashy
I'd have to say Royal Pains. Can't say any of the really trashy ones have made me want to watch.
Any of the Housewives franchise is my guilty pleasure! The D.C. one premieres tomorrow night! If I had some of this and made it yesterday, I'd drink it tomorrow!
Teen Mom…i totally watch it in secret…when the boy comes upstairs, i switch it lol
Maybe not trashy, but I am utterly in love with So You Think You Can Dance!
Oh, Teen Mom, without question.
Ladette to Ladys, Austrailian Edition. Oh it's sooo freaking bad :)
I'm addicted to the addiction shows (Hoarders, Obsession, Animal Hoarders, and even Clean House).
Thanks for the giveaway!
Normally I would never admit this but considering the prize you're enticing me with I'll just come out and say it: I'm totally hooked on the Housewives.
I don't watch "regular" TV, but I did feel like I'd been on a junk-food binge last month after my kids and I watched 9 back-to-back episodes of NCIS on DVD.
Real Housewives of New Jersey!! So trashy, but so good!
Hell's Kitchen is my secret pleasure.
I don't know if I'd say it's trashy exactly, but I sure do love Project Runway!
Thanks for having this great giveaway, it's a damn cool idea!
I am hopelessly addicted to Hoarders, Millionaire Matchmaker and Say Yes to the Dress!
To be honest, I don't know if this is summer TV, but I do enjoy watching True Blood. Now that's trashy… I'm with you, go science!
I do love some Top Chef. Is anyone surprised?
Any of those Housewife series. it is so bad and yet I can't stop watching!
True Blood! Like the guy said on NPR, "It's a soap opera pure and simple. Or rather, impure and complicated." Is it still trashy if they're talking about it on NPR?
Well, this is actual a trashy vice for all year round, but perfect for when it is too unbearable to leave the house…COPS. Oh boy do I love watching shirtless rednecks try to argue their way out of an arrest. "Sure, you can search my car, officer…what, that meth? It's not mine. This car isn't mine. I stole it…no, wait, I borrowed it from my friend…No, they don't know I borrowed it…but the point is that meth isn't mine! The gun? Well, yes, that's mine."
My husband and I have been really enjoying Wipeout as our guilty summer pleasure.
I love all the 'aren't you glad your life isn't this sad' TLC shows, like hoarders and I didn't know I was pregnant. So good.
It's a definite toss-up between True Blood and America's Next Top Model. One is trashy but awesome, the other is trashy and cuh-razy. Love it!
Embarrassed to say I watched most of the Jersey Shore premiere…
Tru Blood is my favorite. On an unrelated note, I'm a chemist and think this is really cool!!!
OMG, absolutely my most favorite trashy summer show is Big Brother! It's so bad, it's good!
I don't really watch any summer TV, let alone trashy summer TV. But I did watch part of the Bachelorette finale with a friend. So let's say that.
We just finished watching Big Brother. I want to slap some of those people.
Is Losing it with Jillian trashy? Eep. Otherwise, The Real Housewives. Especially NY, but the rest are crazy too.
My trashy summer TV shows are Wipeout and Minute To Win It – so intense!
Uhhh gosh theres so many to choose from! I think its probably a toss up between the good ol' housewives of the OC and New Jersey!
True Blood! I'm in that cross section of people that can handle a little hyper-violence with my soap opera.
I may have been know to watch and DVR the series of "You're Cut Off" ha ha! bad TV but it was so funny.
This is really a neat idea. I'd love to give it a try!
It's so sad, but I don't watch tv aside from LOST, and now that's over. I do get my fill of YouTube, though. I had to watch all the Old Spice Guy spots.
The new Jersey Shore…. I can't help it!
wow! what is this concoction… I’m intrigued! trashy… mmm… well, top chef is kinda going down that route… a little too much drama not enough food although I keep watching it…
I love Wipeout. I swear I don't know how someone hasn't at least crippled themselves on that show!
I have to say that Jersey Shore has been my guilty summer pleasure. Thanks to JS, conversations involving the words "The Situation hooking up with skanks in the hot tub" are quite normal and acceptable.
My favorite trashy TV show is the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I can't get enough of that show!
America's Got Talent.
Does this make me a terrible person? "Teen mom." It's trashy. In an AWFUL way.
I usually get sucked into Big Brother but this summer its sadly. The Jersey Shore. Its a freaking trainwreck.
Wow, this sounds so intriguing! My fav summer tv show is definitely "Psych", which is only mildly trashy. :)
Um. Jersey Shore. So bad, yet so good!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey! My total guilty pleasure :)
MTV's The Real World from the 1990s. A classic with its Air Jordans, parachute pants, acid wash jeans, buzz cuts and scrunchies all mixed in with trashy reality tv :)
I don’t have TV, therefore I don’t have a favorite trashy TV show. Not owning a TV, winning this kit would help me to convince my friends to come over and party rather than watching their TV at home!
Real Housewives of New Jersey!
ugh i don't have cable so i don't watch much tv but i am enamored with Dexter. that show has me hooked and i am literally counting down the days until the season 4 release on dvd!
Jersey Couture. No question.
is true blood considered trashy? if not, i do love me some jersey shore!
I have allowed my kids way too much Xbox time only to keep them from coming into the room while I watch True Blood. Bad Mom.
My vote goes for Californicaton! Sex, drugs and rock and roll with drop dead beautiful David Duchovny. What more could a girl ask for?
True Blood. Hands down. I even read the books (uhh did I just admit that?)
I don't consider it trashy, but Top Chef. Also, Rescue Me – one of the best shows EVER!!
It's so embarrassing to admit but Big Brother. It's kind of my favorite anytime trashy tv but it usually comes on during the summer. And tonight is eviction night! I wish I had some tasty, fizzy adult beverage to enjoy with it!
Weeds and True Blood! Can't decide which I like best.
Real Housewives of New Jersey!!!
I feel guilty to say that I have been watching Teen Mom. It's actually on my television right now. Good thing no one else is home. Although they already know I've watched Sixteen and Pregnant before, since I wrote a fifteen-page English paper on it…
But usually I watch better television, like Mad Men. I <3 Jon Hamm. I saw the trailer for The Town yesterday when I went to see Inception, and I couldn't think of anything else but him before the movie started.
My fave summer trashy show is the Jersey Shore–just a yucky guilty pleasure that makes me want to be young and single again.
I got sucked into You're Cut Off — trash tv a its best.
I don't know that this is particularly summery, but my favorite trashy TV show is One Tree Hill, which, oddly enough, my husband got me hooked on.
Real Housewives of New Jersey!! I'm ashamed, but I don't care!
I have to say jersey shore. I know its awful, but even my mother has been getting into it. The cast are disasters and its like watching a car accident, I know I shouldn't, but I can't look away!
Year round it's always a Bachelor or Bachelorette series! I cannot wait until the Bachelor Pad starts, that will be the finest raunchy cheese EVER!
My fave summer show is definitely Wipeout. So funny!
Gotta love True Blood… total guilty pleasure.
It's not trashy, but I've been so into watching the new Futurama episodes, it's not even funny. But Degrassi…oh, I've been watching a lot of Degrassi, albeit because other people in the house want to, lol.
True Beauty. Love to see those egos burst.
This is awesome! My favorite trashy summertime show is Hell’s Kitchen. I can’t get enough of Gordon calling everyone a donkey!
TOSH.0. Seriously, sickeningly funny!
Sounds so fun- I'll spike anything! hmm, trashy? I guess it would have to be so you think you can dance. I just wanna dance!
Bethenny getting married?
I particularly enjoy that they use a question mark in the title.
Also partial to Say Yes to the Dress but that is all the time, not just in the summer.
true blood all the way!!!
I'm afraid to say, I'm hooked on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. So trashy, so addictive. It's like a car wreck – you can't look away!
Good afternoon. Reruns of OZ on DirectTV.
HGTV Design Star and Hell's Kitchen – have to love the drama.
Two words: True Blood. You really cannot get any trashier or magnificent. It might be the only thing getting me through the 104 heat index.
Covert Affairs…..new this summer on cable…..fun.
Oh man! I love, love, love Burn Notice and Covert Affairs… but if we're going all "full disclosure" here, I'd have to admit that I watch the Real Housewives of Jersey. I know, I know. For shame.
My kids are into Wipeout. but I'm more of a Next Food Network Star kind of girl… :)
I'm going to have to go with Real Housewives of New Jersey and True Blood LOVE THEM BOTH LOL!
My fav summer show is True Blood. I'm not sure that it's trashy, but it is am-AZ-ing! And right now nothing sounds better than some Spike Your Juice Sangria while I watch the latest episode :)
teen mom, for sure!
I can't help watching The Bachelor/Bachlorette shows. I was so addicted this season. Lucky for me, the Bachelor Pad is starting up Monday night :-) Whooo for trashy tv! P.s. I'm 22!
Jersey Shore. There, I said it…
We don't have cable so I recently camped out on a friend's couch for a marathon.
I have to admit that its Drop Dead Diva
The bachelorette! and soon to be the Bachelor Pad!
Hung and True Blood on Premium cable – Top Chef/So You Think You can Dance/Project Runway/Design Star on regular cable.
As of late, I have kind of become obsessed with The Jersey Shore. I resisted watching the first season, but couldn't help but get sucked in to watching the second season premier a couple weeks ago. It's just so trashy. I love it.
MAD MEN!!! although I would argue that it is not trashy. And Shark Week is somehow terrifyingly addictive.
I've been watching Glee – I have turned into a GLEEK
I don't know if it's trashy, but "Wipeout" is definitely my favorite summer TV show.
I can't stand Keeping up with the Kardashians, but I love Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami! This product sounds amazing, if I don't win I'm def going to order some!
Burn Notice of course
Real Housewives of New Jersey!
I don't watch TV in the summer. Seriously, I'd rather be at the pool or swinging on the front porch. I still want to win, though! :)
Bones. All four seasons on Netflix. I was addicted from the first episode until the last and am impatiently waiting for season 5.
I adore True Blood and Hot in Cleveland! SO AWESOME
But not as aweosme as this is!
I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm all about the Real Housewives!
Oh I have so many….Housewives of Orange County, Jersey Shore, Teen Moms, Real World Road Rules Challenge, Kardashians….I need help!
My summer guilty pleasure for the third year running is So You Think You Can Dance. Man, I love that show.
i guess we all have different definitions of trashy, but i'd say true blood takes the cake for me.
I'm loving The Next Food Network Star. I'm such a sucker. And, speaking of suckers (hahaha–I'm punny), I'm also way too into True Blood.
I'd have to say Jersey Shore…I used to watch The Real World but that got old, for some reason this seems different to me! I know, it makes no sense… but sometimes it's nice to watch something that's so stupid yet so funny…
It's got to be Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami. What a hot mess those two sisters are.
My trashy TV shows are Cheaters and RuPaul's Drag Race on Logo. :D
I love any of the Housewives shows. Definitely my favorite!
Any of the Housewives.. and Burn notice
oh well, i am a gleek myself and i really really love GLEE “
