Press Sample

Skinny??? Yep you read right? I had to trim some calories on ya folks. This week’s Summer Drink is a twist on the classic yet super sugary and high in calorie Pina Colada. Meet it’s thinner and healthier cousin Sparkle!  I came up with the idea of doing a Sparkling Pina Colada for two different reasons, 1.) The people over at Sparkling ICE were kind of enough to send a bunch of their Zero Calorie Sparkling Mountain Spring Water  in various tasty flavors over for me to try and 2.) I need to lose weight… but you guys kinda knew that already.

What’s great about the Sparkling ICE Mountain Spring Water is that there are a variety of flavors, 12 Sparkling Waters and 6 Sparkling Ice Lemonades, they’re all zero calories, and contain vitamins and antioxidants, one huge thing for me is that it has a very low, practically non existent sugar content since it uses Sucralose which is a sugar substitute like Splenda. You can purchase Sparkling ICE products from your local stores and check them out at www.sparklingice.com

Notes
  1. Important Tip: While some may want to add rum to the Sparkling Ice and call it a day I did find that too much of the Sparkling Ice can leave a bit of an after taste which is why I suggest just using it to fill the remainder of the glass.

    I love real Pina Coladas–this sound good too. I need to get me some of that Sparkling ICE! I need to lose weight and am trying to drink more water but some of the flavored waters are high in sugar and salt.
