Summer Fun with Cascade Ice
Zero calorie, tasty carbonated beverage. It mixes the best of both worlds: juice and soda and did I mention ZERO CALORIES ?
Having said that, you can imagine how over the moon I was to be asked to try out some new flavors.
The first of which was the new Strawberry Melon flavor. Cascade Ice stayed true to form with this one in that it was the flavorful, sweet but not overly so, refreshing beverage I'd come to expect.
Next,I sampled the Margarita, Cosmopolitan and Coconut (for pina colada) mixers from the new line. Oh did I mention, Cascade Ice now has a line of mixers for those of us that like to indulge in an adult beverage every now and again. Cool, right ?
I decided first to try them without alcohol and was pleasantly surprised that they could be just regular beverages if one were so inclined. And what I mean is that they were good enough to stand alone. With that said, I couldn't not mix them and frankly these are as good if not better than any other store bought mixer. And here's the thing I can make one or two little tiny cocktails and don't need to make a whole pitcher. Bonus!
Ease of use was a huge plus in that it was essentially add the alcohol and stir. These things are super portable, yummy and just plain fun. And what's more they've got nifty little cocktail recipies listed right on their site.
I can imagine taking these babies with me to every party I hit this summer. A resounding thumbs up.
