Whether you call it sparkling, bubbly, seltzer, fizzy, carbonated, or mineral water – you don’t have to be a mixologist to have fun with these popular drinks. Fizzy waters are everywhere and changing the game of how we enjoy water. Now bringing real fruit flavor to the market with the use of fruit extracts and essential oils, many sparkling waters have made it their mission to leave out all the additives.
Intensify with frozen delight
Take your fizzy drink to refreshing heights. Frozen fruit ice cubes, frozen pomegranate seeds, or plain frozen fruit can do the trick! Frozen fruit ice cubes seriously might be the easiest recipe you ever make. Preferably the day before, wash your fruit and get your ice cube trays ready. Great fruit picks for this are: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, oranges, watermelon, and kiwi but almost anything works. (You can even freeze herbs like rosemary!) Cut or peel any fruit like strawberries and kiwi as needed. Drop the fruit in your ice cube trays and then pour filtered water over the top and freeze a minimum of 4 hours. Pop-out and use at your party or put in a clear pitcher with some sparkling water to serve and admire.
