Nothing gives me nostalgic childhood flashbacks quite like a Capri Sun. Just thinking about those shiny pouches floods my mind with memories of school lunches spent sipping on my favorite flavor (Mountain Cooler, obviously), then subsequently folding the empty vessel into a makeshift flip phone. Now that I'm of legal drinking age, my beverage preferences have refined a bit, but I can't deny longing for a Capri Sun every now and then. That's why I nearly passed out from a nostalgia overload when I discovered that sangria-filled pouches exist.
Puerto Rico-based brand Gasolina produces portable pouches — straws included! — filled with a variety of alcoholic drinks, including rum punch, a mojito, and a sea breeze. But the one flavor we've got major heart eyes for is the sangria option, which the brand has officially dubbed "Sangriiia." A mouthwatering combination of Caribbean rum, açai, and other natural fruit juices, the Sangriiia pouches pack a tasty punch (and a strong one, too, as they contain 7.5 percent alcohol by volume).
These innovative drinks evade the all-to-familiar struggle of craving a fruity sangria on the go, but being a bit too lazy to combine all the usual ingredients together. The pouches can be purchased individually or in a five-pack (hello, perfect beach day drink!) from a handful of liquor stores throughout Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. If you need us, you can find us clutching onto what's left of Summer by sipping on this boozy, adult-approved version of Capri Sun.
