What a week! We returned late Sunday night from the beach and the Florida/Alabama line where we enjoyed all there is to do in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and then both my girls started school on Wednesday.
Now that the girls are in school I’m hoping to catch up on projects and also have a little me time, perhaps sneaking in some end of summer pool hours before Labor Day with a good book and a great drink. When I’m recharging during the week, I tend to avoid cocktails, but I love the bubbly sensation of sparkling water. I really love Vintage sparkling water in lime straight up over ice with a fresh lime twist. On the weekends, I can party it up a bit with cranberry vodka.
Vintage sparkling water comes in several flavors including Pink Grapefruit, Lime, Coconut, Lemon, and Cucumber Melon, that are not only delicious, but are calorie free. Made with natural flavors, Vintage is also gluten free, low sodium, with no artificial colors and has zero sugar, making it virtually guilt free!
I find Vintage at my local Kroger where it is on sale this weekend for just $2.99 for a 12-pack.
What’s the difference between sparkling water and seltzer water from Vintage? New Vintage sparkling water has fewer, softer bubbles and is loaded with natural fruit flavor. It’s perfect for summer and trust me, even though school has started I am squeezing the last juicy bits out of summer for as long as my flip flops can stand it!
Looking for a “mocktail” refresher this summer featuring succulent strawberries that are still in-season? Check this recipe out from the official Vintage website. I love that it includes fresh mint, as we have quite a bit of it in our back yard! This would be a fun recipe to make with teens. My girls were all about the virgin dacquiris during our family beach vaca.
