...has now turned into my favorite decoration in my backyard...
SKYY BLUE is an adult beverage that tastes alot like fresca with a kick in the pants! Perfect!
Then when I finish a bottle, I go nail it to my mulberry tree that
Miz Natty decided should be decorated with pink paint. The vine on the bed is Air Potato...

Yes, Monique...but it doesn't taste like a beer at all. In fact, it says on the label "Citrus Cranberry", so go figure? Like I said it reminds me of the flavor of Fresca.

My older sons told me that it is a 'metrosexual beverage'. Soooooo. Anyhoo!

I also got a 'nastygram' from someone who doesn't approve of nailing these into my mulberry tree. Not a Gardenbuddy, but from that other place. It's my tree in my yard & I'll do as I wish with it.

Paint it pink & nail blue bottles comes to mind. I think I might go get another bottle and a hammer & nail...

Too cool, Carolyn. Never heard of this stuff. Like Fresca, you say? I love Fresca!

Lucy you would love it...

It is very unusual, but I prefer it over beer these days. Most likely because I get to collect such cool blue bottles. Snort!

Carolyn, is this an alcoholic beverage? How much alcohol? So, it's fizzy, like Fresca? I will love it. Wonder if they sell it here. If it's alcoholic, I won't be able to drink it. My daughter brought me a bottle of mango cooler back from the U.S., and holy cow, did that ever have alot of alochol in it. I was tipsy after half a bottle. Our wine coolers have only half a percent of alcohol in them. That still packs a punch for me.

You could mix it with Fresca half & half!

Love the tree and its flowers.....but I think I will stick to my English pint and my Highland Malt, even though your SKYY BLUE packs as much punch as our beer.
