A Splash Of Sparkles
Posted on April 20, 2019 by in Snacks, Mixers & More

Most sparkling water is naturally carbonated from a spring, unlike soda water which is carbonated at a processing plant.

Sparkling water has no shortage of applications and health benefits–whether you want to soothe an upset stomach, remove stains, or reduce your cholesterol. Give your guests a refreshing alternative to alcohol at your next party. Plus, sparkling water makes a great wine substitute or seasonal cocktail mixer in lieu of tonic or soda water.
