Don't worry and be adventurous if the idea of corn in one's beverage isn't that appealing, for purple corn extract is actually the last ingredient on the list, rendering it basically indetectable except for in the psyche. There's actually more than a few different kinds of juice in this mix besides the antioxidant-armed açai and maize: Red grape, pear, apple, fig and lemon, plus purees of pear and banana.

Adina means life in Senegal, where the now S.F.-based founder Magatte Wade-Marchand originally hails. Her idea for a fair trade beverage company was realized through a partnership with Greg Steltenpohl, the guru of Odwalla. Adina has many noteworthy flavors, but other personal favorites are Lavender Lemonade and Spicy Ginger. The site also offers a number of cocktail recipes using their juices, teas and coolers. —Tamara Palmer

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
