12 sophisticated soft drinks for Dry January

Firefly Mr Lyan Superfly

When hipster soft drinks brand Firefly collaborates with one of the most exciting bartenders on the planet, you know you’re onto a good thing.

The mixologist in question is Dandelyan’s Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, and the fruit of the collaboration is Superfly – a special edition sparkler featuring everything from grapefruit and redcurrant to kola nut, coffee and cherry-tea flavoured cascara, with a little wormwood thrown in for added depth of flavour.

Boasting beautifully bright floral packaging, Superfly works well with plenty of ice and a sprig of mint as a complex long drink in its own right, but also makes a mean mixer for gin and Scotch.

Early to the sophisticated soft drinks party, Firefly was founded in 2003 by Harry Briggs and Marcus Waley-Cohen. Among the botanicals they work with in their fruit juices and tonics are green tea, dandelion, nettle and yerba maté. RRP: £1.75 / 33cl at Ocado.
