The much-loved Norbert Wabnig, owner of the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, kept assistant video editor Blake Smith and me awake and lively during a long day of shooting by giving us a bottle of the refreshing Rieme Pomegranate Sparkling Limonade. Considering the hard-to-find gems stocked in Wabnig’s store, this probably isn’t a ubiquitous drink, but it’s worth seeking out (or buying online). The tart lemon edge balances the pomegranate’s fruitiness, with no extra syrupy sweetness. The result: the kind of effervescence that’s great alone or in a cocktail.
