Because I am an avid water drinker – it is my beverage of choice, other than morning coffee, and that falls into a wholly different category – I always expect others to feel the same. It is, after all, essential to good health, thirst quenching like no other beverage, and so conveniently available. But not everyone feels as I do, including Mr. O-P, who doesn’t care for water at all. Recent health issues have caused his doctor to insist that he drink more water, something that is just not easy for him.
Imagine the convenience (divine intervention?) when the good people at Cascade Ice Water sent me a six-pack and asked if I’d give it a try. I tried it immediately and loved it, but the good news here is that so did Mr. O-P.
Cascade Ice Water stands on its own, I think, as being the best tasting flavored water that I’ve tried, and in the history of my life, I have pretty much tried them all both in the U.S. and abroad. It is lightly sparkling, so doesn’t have the “bite” that is sometimes present in other brands that seem to be a bit heavy on the carbonation. It is organic – a big plus – and the flavors are true, not at all synthetic.
Refreshing at any time of the day, it is particularly good first thing in the morning to help the body re-hydrate after a long night of sleep. The grapefruit flavored water can easily, satisfyingly, replace calorie-laden orange or grapefruit juice; other flavors can refresh throughout the day. The lime variety, I have found, makes a great mixer for cocktails, replacing club soda in fine fashion.
Thumbs up on this one, it is definitely a keeper.
