Gin Rickey Cocktail with Vintage Sparkling Water

Gin Rickey - A refreshing blend of gin, lime juice and sparkling water

When it’s hot outside, there is nothing better than a cold, refreshing drink. For me that means something delicious and bubbly! My go-to used to be soda but now that I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle, I’ve been staying away from it. I recently discovered Vintage Sparkling Water and it has been an amazing alternative!

There’s a lot to love about Vintage Sparkling Water. It has zero calories and it contains no sugar, artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup. It also has no artificial flavors, colors or dyes. It’s made with just two ingredients: carbonated water and natural flavors!

Sparkling Water with Lime

Vintage Sparkling Water comes in six delicious flavors: Pink Grapefruit, Lime, Coconut, Lemon, Cucumber Melon and Original. They taste great by themselves or you can add them to any drink to make it sparkling! My favorite flavor so far is Lime. During the day, especially after I’ve been out in the heat, I like to pour it over a glass of ice and squeeze fresh lime juice over the top. It is incredibly refreshing!

The sparkling water is also great for creating your favorite mixed drinks. I’ve been using the Lime flavor to create one of my favorites — The Gin Rickey. If you’ve never heard of this before, it’s a great summer cocktail made with gin, fresh lime juice, sparkling water and sometimes simple syrup. I like to save my calories when I can, so I substitute the simple syrup with stevia. Prefer non-alcoholic? Simply leave out the gin.
