 Cascade Ice Sparkling Water

Be the “hostess with the mostest” this season by using Cascade Ice to mix up the perfect holiday drinks. Cascade Ice has more than 21 delicious and unique flavors including Cranberry Pomegranate, McIntosh Apple, Orange Mango, and Coconut, as well as a line of skinny cocktail mixers in 6 classic flavors including Margarita, Cosmopolitan and Apple Tini. With all of these different flavors, you and your friends will surely find some they really like! My favorite was the lemonade flavor. Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Water is free of unnecessary and unhealthy “extras” found in other flavored waters, like calories, sodium, caffeine, gluten and sugar.
