ICE, ice, baby! It’s time to mix up a fruity, low-calorie cocktail starring sparkling flavored water.

The popularity of sparkling flavored water dates back to the early 1990s, when the “it” brand was Clearly Canadian, derived from springs in British Columbia. In recent years, the non-carbonated variety has taken more of the spotlight. But the sparkling style is ideal for cocktails, providing fruity flavor with a bit of oomph.
