Pink Grapefruit ICE Sea Breeze looks yummy... Where do they sell these at?

said...

yes I would love to try it.

said...

They sound great can't wait to try them!

said...

Black Raspberry! I'll have to try these. Of course, I'd love a sample!

said...

The kids love to add ginger ale to their favorite fruit juice (cranberry, apple, etc). They get a great fizzy drink! :)

I love a frozen strawberry lemonade with a shot vodka! :)

said...

They sound amazing!! I like to drink Raspberry or Blueberry flavored water with Vodka in the summer...Low Cal and flavorful:)

said...

I buy them at Kroger...they are DEFINITELY the best of the flavored waters.

I love Ice. I seen that there are some flavors that I didnt even know they made.

I am going to try the Orange Mango Sparkling ICE instead of orange juice when making a 'fuzzy naval'. Just add peach schnapps to the flavored water and enjoy! I can save some calories without sacrificing a great taste. Thanks for the ideas!

said...

I haven't tried these yet! I believe I would try some orange mango, pineapple juice, and some vodka for a cold, summer drink!

said...

I'm thinking you could make a virgin mojito by mulling some mint leaves with a sugar cube and adding Sparkling Ice Lemon-Lime. Mmmm... tastes like summer!

said...

What a great way to get away from the regular bottled sodas and be ready for some spring drinks since its been so warm lately. These recipes sound so delightful and refreshing. I'm gonna have to try this new refreshing drink line and the recipes too!! Thanks for sharing!!

The lemon lime one would make a great low calorie substitute for margarita mix. Add some tequilla and ice in the blender then rim with salt...ah, the perfect summer drink!
