Summer is here and the while we've had a lot of rain the sun has finally begun to shine. When it gets hot outside it's important to stay hydrated throughout the day. My husband and I often work outside in the summer and we like to take a beverage outside with us. When we need to stay hydrated water is our beverage of choice and we love all of the flavored varieties of water that we find at our local Walmart!
Now my husband is a huge fan of any beverage with bubbles so when I saw the NEW DASANI® Sparkling sleek cans at Walmart I had to buy them! They come in a pack of 8 with delicious flavors like Lime, Black Cherry, and Pineapple. Knowing how much my husband enjoys bubbles in his water I picked up a pack of Lemon and a pack of Lime DASANI® Sparkling water while I was shopping at my local Walmart store.
When I got home I refrigerated all of the cans. I wanted the sparkling water to be cold and ready to drink for whenever we needed to hydrate. Since I haven't tried the DASANI® Sparkling yet I grabbed one of the lime cans and filled a glass with ice. I love how fun and fizzy the water is. It was super refreshing with just a hint of lime and bubbles tickled my nose as I drank it.
Of course you know that I can't just leave a great product alone. I've been all about infusing water so far this summer. I love adding fresh fruits and herbs to my water to give them a little extra flavor. Since the water already has a crisp citrus flavor I wanted to add something that would enhance the flavor and not cover it up. I also wanted something that was going to look pretty and that we could enjoy out of the porch.
As I was working on my infused sparkling water my husband came home and asked where I got the bubbly water. I showed him the cans in the refrigerator and he promptly grabbed one. After drinking some he commented how much he liked the bubbles with a hint of citrus. He said that it was perfect for staying hydrated in the summer and I had to agree with him there!
I went back to work on my infused water. I ended up putting slices of oranges, fresh rosemary sprigs, and a cinnamon stick in each of two glasses. I was able to buy all of these ingredients at Walmart along with the DASANI® Sparkling water. Then I filled both glasses with ice. I poured the Lemon DASANI® Sparkling into one glass and the Lime DASANI® Sparkling into the other glass. I walked out into the backyard where my husband was working and told him that it was time to break for bubbles. He thought that was pretty funny and grabbed one of the glasses.
The infused sparkling water was delicious. The lime flavor in the DASANI® Sparkling was still the star of the beverage but I could taste subtle hints of cinnamon, rosemary, and orange which was totally delicious and refreshing. I will also say that these drinks are so pretty and I'd be happy to serve them to any guests that come over this summer.
- 1 orange, thinly sliced
- 4 springs of fresh rosemary
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- ice cubes
- 2 cans DASANI® Sparkling (I used 1 lemon and 1 lime)
- Fill two tall glasses with ice cubes.
- Carefully arrange the orange slices in glass. I like to squeeze the oranges just a bit so that the flavor releases into the glass.
- Then arrange the rosemary springs in the glass. You may want to bruise several piece of rosemary to release that flavor into the glass as well.
- Finally arrange the cinnamon sticks in the glasses.
- Pour one can of DASANI® Sparkling into each glass.
- Stick a straw in the glass and enjoy your citrus infused bubbly water!
