One of the things I enjoyed most about IFBC was the opportunity to sample new food and drinks.
It was the perfect opportunity to work with the kind folks at Cascade Ice, who have generously offered to sponsor a Giveaway to one lucky winner! As part of this Giveaway, the winner will receive one box (24 bottles) of assorted Cascade Ice Sparkling Water bottles!
Let me tell you about them!
Cascade Ice is naturally flavored sparking water with juice that has zero calories and zero fat. It’s also free of sodium, gluten and caffeine too!
Cascade Ice sent me 5 sample flavors to review:
- Cranberry Pomegranate
- Pink Grapefruit
- Pomegranate Berry
- Peach Mango
The Cranberry Pomegranate is not only a gorgeous color, but a great flavor combination! I loved drinking this one straight up, no extra ingredients required.
The first thing I noticed with the Pink Grapefruit was that it had a very fruity fragrance that made my mouth water! It was almost as if I’d cut into a fresh grapefruit and took a deep breath. I tried it before mixing it into a cocktail, and it has a very refreshing flavor that would be great on a hot summer day.
The Pink Grapefruit Greyhound I made, reminded me of sitting on a beach in Jamaica sipping on a festive cocktail (and you can hardly taste the Vodka – the pink grapefruit is the star here). It was like a Cocktail Light without an overly tart grapefruit taste. I’ll definitely have the Pink Grapefruit flavor again – we loved it.
The Lemonade was one of our very favorite flavors. It’s lemon-y and slightly tart without being overly sweet. You could have an entire pitcher of this sitting on the porch on a hot summer day. A keeper!
The Pomegranate Berry was my least favorite flavor. There were two things that I noticed about it: (1) it had a powdered drink taste to it; not something you’d expect from a bottled sparkling water and (2) for my palate, it had an odd aftertaste that I didn’t care for.
Peach Mango Mimosa
Oh my gosh!!! I know I told you above that the Lemonade was my favorite. And, it was. Until I met Peach Mango. Yum, yum! So sweet, juicy and perfectly mixed peach + mango for summertime. This one is delish! After trying it, I just had to make a Mimosa out of it.
This one is so good, it makes your mouth water as you drink it! It’s like biting into a juicy peach. It’s really sweet and reminiscent of summer’s plump, juicy peaches and mangos. You know the flavor.
I call these little darlings my Peach Mango Mimosa Shooters. You get to drink your champagne and eat it too! Don’t be fooled. It’s absolutely lovely. The sugared rim adds that extra special touch and we loved this. Definitely a must try.
