#4 will make you forget about soda forever.
There’s nothing better than sipping on a cold sparkling water, especially when its full of bubbles and big on flavor. We tried more than 80 bubbly bevs to find the best sparkling water brands on the market. Whether you’re on the hunt to quench your thirst with something fizzy, cut back on your soda intake, or you want to add some bubbles to your favorite cocktail, this range of flavors, from fruity to slightly vegetal to plain, will certainly keep you sipping.
But first, what is the difference between seltzer water and sparkling water? Seltzer is carbonated artificially, through adding carbon dioxide to flat water, but sparkling water gets its bubbles naturally. It also makes for the perfect refreshing sipper if you’re cutting back on soda. With all of the flavor and none of the sugar or other additives in canned and bottled sodas, these bubbly beverages contain only water and flavors, but are just as satisfying as pop. Plus, they make for a great fizzy topper to a cocktail for some extra bubbles (or you can try spiked seltzer, if you’re into bubbly booze).
Whether you’re craving a fruity seltzer or on the hunt for a plain beverage to doctor up with your own splash of lemon or lime, you’re sure to find a sparkling water that you’ll want to sip on all year long.
