Dare I ask what a Russian tastes like?
Never heard of it.

"A pure Schweppes creation, that delightfully tickles your palate. With an enchanting touch of berries and a daring hint of hibiscus and carrot."

Interesting combination.

Not seen this stuff for many years, I had no idea they still made it! I used to like it, but not everyone did, it was one of those love it or hate it things - unless the taste is different now of course

Me neither! Haven't seen it for a long time.

Will check H.Bs., OP. Heat for a good find!
Picked up both flavours in my H.B at the weekend.

Although it was marketed in the uk as a mixer for vodka it works really well with Gin

Schweppes sell a lot of Special Edition mixers on the Continent but very few are available in the uk.
That's odd, they renamed Russchian to citrus blend in 2014.
I love it, my favorite vodka mixer.

Excellent find op, heat added
this has a grapefruit taste, very refreshing, great on its own but also as a mixer, and to be fair, 10p a bottle, got to be worth a try
ditto, love it but shame they don't do a sugar free/diet version as I'm on a low carb diet...
Diet drinks are very bad for you anyway. Some studies suggest they make you fatter.
Stevia's hopefully fine, but seriously avoid artificial sweeteners like Aspartame etc.
OMG this stuff is amazing, haven't seen it in years, forgot it existed, etc. Nearly needed a tissue when I saw this post.
Managed to pick up 7 today, thanks OP, nice to have the proper stuff and not the re-branded "Citrus Blend", can only guess this is for a different market and they got hold of stock.
The label is in English with a UK address for Coca Cola, very strange, unless they have brought back the Russchian name, but it's even an old school bottle.

Like pears, been drink it for years with Vodka & Lime. Much better than a Vodka tonic.

Still the same taste. Only Morrisons sell it normally now.

Citrus blend was disgusting , that's why they brought Russian back.

I always thought it was slightly peach flavoured, but not "full on" just a hint, with other flavours in the background.
