I love flavored seltzer waters. I don’t like to drink a ton of calories so I really enjoy sparkling waters. I think they are super refreshing and have mystical healing powers. OK, I know that isn’t true but an old boss of mine used to swear that the fizz cured headaches. I always have sparkling water on hand for any ailment I may have. Maybe it is just a pick me up, but I like to think it helps me get well. But I also just find them really refreshing and a perfect afternoon beverage on a hot day.
Seagram’s sent me their new flavored sparkling seltzer waters to try. I was super excited because I usually add a squeeze of lime (one of my all time favorite flavors) to my water and end up wasting 3/4 of it because I have no other use for it aside from my beverage. With these I get a variety of flavors to try without needing to do anything but pop open a can and no waste. Naturally, I tried the Key Lime flavor first. If you are not already a fan of sparkling seltzer waters, you may not enjoy these. These are FIZZY, like, super duper fizzy, the kind where it almost hurts to swallow. I LOVE that! The added flavor was not overpowering but you also didn’t have to search for it either. It was a good balance of flavorful and refreshing and delightful to drink. I was unable to try to the Blackberry Raspberry flavor as it froze/exploded in my fridge. Science is weird.
The Orange Citrus ended up being my favorite flavor. And while I didn’t use any of these in a cocktail, I just KNOW these would be sensational. The fizz and flavor would be an awesome mixer for your favorite spirit. I think I will keep some of these on hand for summer sipping. These would also be the perfect addition to your party bar set up. You would need little else than these flavored sparkling seltzer waters, a few bottles of the most popular liquors and some fun glassware to keep your guests happy. They would provide tons of options for your guests with minimal effort by you. Find these delicious drinks at your local grocery stores.
