Nope, none of those here. Although if you’re over 18 and want to try one of our fab Rio cocktails check out our Recipes page (please drink responsibly).
Is Rio Kosher and Halal?
Rio Tropical is Kosher and Halal, although it is not accredited. Tropical Light (No Added Sugar) is not Halal.
How much sugar is in Rio?
The sugars in Rio Tropical and Rio Citrus Zest come from naturally occurring sugars from fruit and added sugar. Look, we know lots of sugar isn’t great for us, but at the same time we believe soft drinks are a little treat – and sometimes a little bit of what you fancy does you good. If you prefer no added sugar, then Rio Tropical Light (No Added Sugar) is the one for you.
