I have long been a fan of Spindrift beverages since I first reviewed their original sparkling beverage line a few years ago. The original line is the perfect blend of refreshing sparkling water, crushed fruit, and cane sugar. I am not a soda person in the slightest but these had just the right amount of sweetness and carbonation that made them absolutely refreshing. So when Spindrift reached out to me to sample their new unsweetened Blackberry flavor from their Sparking Waters line, I could not resist giving it a try.
I had initially thought their sparkling water line would just be like most flavored seltzers – with a hint of fruit flavor essence, but I was wrong. These actually are very similar to their regular beverage line but with no added sugar. Each contains fresh squeezed or pressed fruits – and in the case of the blackberry each four-pack contains 20 crushed blackberries. The water is a rich deep purple color with just a hint of sweetness from the fruit. These were great on their own but I really liked mixing them with some Tito’s Vodka over ice for a fun adult beverage. The subtle sweetness
The line of Sparkling Waters come in six flavors: Blackberry, Grapefruit, Cucumber, Lemon, Raspberry-Lime, and Watermelon. I know I am definitely looking forward to trying some of the other flavors – especially the Raspberry-Lime. You can use their store locator to find a location near you that carries Spindrift or you can order right online and have their products shipped right to your front door.
