It’s easy to overindulge at this time of year. So much good food, so many delectable drinks, so many opportunities to party on.
That’s exactly why I’m proposing a switch-out this season. A simple, small change that will help mitigate some of the holiday damage, while still allowing you to have a good time. It’s time to swap Vintage® Seltzer into your favorite cocktails!
I like the bubbles with a touch of flavor, without any added colors, dyes, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial flavors. All you’ll find are carbonated water and natural flavors (which may be an essence, extract, or oil from the actual fruit that is listed on the label). Simple, yet so satisfying, and no guilt. There’s no wasted calories when you drink Vintage® Seltzer because there aren’t any, period. Save them for the tasty treats instead!
Carbonation. When you crave that effervescence, seltzer is where it’s at. Sparkling water’s focus is more on flavor, less on fizz.
With 10 different flavors of Vintage Seltzer, there’s one to go with every drink you’re thinking of. Try the Lemon-Lime with gin for a simple Gin Fizz. I really love Wild Cherry and Raspberry with vodka over ice, for a quick and easy, yet festive cocktail. An egg cream relies upon original flavor Vintage Seltzer. And the Pomegranate? That just screams Christmas–and deserves a beautiful champagne flute with pomegranate arils in the bottom and a splash of pomegranate vodka for an extra flavor boost. It’s also wonderful combined with cranberry juice, for an elegant mocktail that allows you to soak in all the spirit of the season.
My local source, Big Y, only carries the 1-liter bottles, but that’s okay with me. I consider them single serving anyway, and will typically drink 1 a day. Saunter on down the soda aisle and look up–they’re a top shelf product at Big Y, and that’s exactly how it should be! I stocked up on 1-liter bottles this weekend, so I wouldn’t have to worry about running out (plus they were on sale). 12-pack of the cans are a great deal, too, and typically retail for $3.99. You can snag a coupon for $1 off your next purchase here. For help finding Vintage Seltzer locally, try their store locator.
How will you swap out sugary drinks this holiday season?
