Love the taste! And LOVE how relaxed and up-beat it makes me feel.

I have no interest in dry January and I barely drink as it is. All that said, the mocktails from Recess are good any month of the year and in any setting. The mule and the marg stand out for me. I will definitely be adding these to my regular beverage rotation.

I loved this drink however the price is unaffordable and it would be cheaper for me to just drink an alcholic beverage.

I'm sorry - I love the branding and their social, but I have tried a few times (several flavors) and just hate the taste.

Love the CBD effects in Recess. I’m not a big drinker and love having a recess on hand to feel included in backyard BBQs and with friends.

Like the concept of this water but didn't like all the added ingredients. Wish they had something without the unnecessary ingredients.

Love this drink! Taste great but not sure if it calms my mind so much but who cares when it taste this good. Was not a fan of the strawberry rose but I am not a rose girl . Not so easy to find. I had to order off amazon.

I love, grapefruit flavored stuff, and I did not like this. It didn’t taste like real grapefruit. There was no zing.

the flavors are slightly hit or miss. blackberry chai is my favorite. i genuinely feel the calming effects, i attribute it to the L-theanine. drinking one of these after work is so much better than a glass of wine. i'd give anything to find these in stores near me! ordering soda online just feels over the top.
