Cascade Ice Sparkling Water Sponsor Spotlight Review

I put these up on the top because these are hubby's personal favorite and guess what? (that was a hard thing for him (a bid he-man) to admit that he loves the Strawberry Lemonade the best! And on top of that, these are great weight control drinks!), so don't give him too hard of a time. I am just happy to get him away from drinking so much Coke! He was up to 3 or 4 cans a day and it was really worrying me alot! So, thanks Cascade Ice for making such an awesome flavor that he enjoys drinking!

There are three categories that the Cascade Sparkling Waters are divided up into and they are Sparkling Cocktail Mixers, Zero Calorie Organic Sparkling Water and Zero Calorie Sparkling Water. What a mouthful that was! All three categories are Sodium Free, Caffeine Free and Gluten Free. But the best part is that there are 31 flavors to choose from! Are you kidding me? No! Have you ever had that many flavors to choose from before? Wow, you should see some of the names, well like: McIntosh Apple, Acai Pomegrante Dragonfruit, Cherry Guava Blueberry, Organic Mixed Berry and Mojito
Cocktail Mixer to name a few. You will just have to check it all out for yourself because there are way too many to talk about.
The one that I liked the best if I had been able to drink it was the Peach Mango. It was one of the best zero calorie drinks I have had that did not leave an awful tasted in my mouth, you know, that saccharine awful taste. I only got to take 2 quick sips so it would not be enough to set my bladder off, but I can tell you that if you like peaches and mangoes, this is gonna be your drink! I just had to show you what they look like!

Also, I am sure by now, you have noticed that this is about my second or third review on Cascade Ice so that should tell you something right there! They are an awesome alternative to heavy sweet drinks, sports drinks that have alot of sugar or even to just plain ole water, which is where I belong. I have to drink so much of it that believe it or not, sometimes, when I drink it, it actually makes me a little queasy at my stomach. I don't know why but I am glad that I can drink other beverages that help me in the water department with a little added flavor!
OMG, I just went on their site and they have added some new flavors and one of them is the Strawberry Chocolate! Well, I am just gonna have to have that one! Doesn't it sound just delish? Oh, my, hubby will have a fit over this one if he liked the Strawberry Lemonade so much, this one is gonna send him over the top! Mmm, they also added a Huckleberry Blackberry. Now how in the heck would that taste? That is a strange combination but I have found that sometimes the strangest tastes mixed together often have the best flavor!
Now, these above are part of the Cocktail Mixes that you can get and this one is the Mixer Variety Pack which contains Lemon Drop, Margarita, Apple Tini, Pina Colada, Mojito and Cosmopolitan. These are all part of the Cascade Ice's Sparkling Water Cocktail Mixers. I don't drink but some of these sound really interesting. I wonder how they would taste just plain, you know, right out of the bottle without mixing in whatever liquor you would mix with them? Mmm, may have to try that as well, just so that I know. Well, I thought I had gone over alot of territory with Cascade Ice in the last few reviews, but even I found out new things this time around.

I would strongly recommend checking out their store locator because I just did on the Cocktail Mixers and they are not sold anywhere on this side of the United States. They are only found out on the west coast, so before you get too excited pick your favorites and make sure they are in your area before you go rushing out the door to buy them! It looks like the one that is pretty much sold everywhere is the regular Cascade Ice Zero Calorie Sparkling Water. So, that is a good thing, because that is Mike's favorites! Whew, we sure did get lucky on that one! The Organic one seems to be pretty much spread out here and there with just the Cocktail Mixers being the odd ball out.

I did grab you a nice summer drink recipe while I was looking over their Flavorful Life Blog:

1. In a 16oz mixer cup put in 2oz of Malibu Rum and 4 wedges of fresh pineapple
2. Add 8oz of Cascade Ice 0 Calorie Pina Colada Mixer
3. Shake gently or stir aggressively and pour entire contents into a Hurricane or 16oz glass
4. Garnish with an orange wheel and a pineapple wedge
**For a nice Martini style Pina Colada follow instructions above only strain contents into an 8oz martini glass and garnish with a floating orange wheel*
