Sparkling water

Sparkling bottled water is today’s beverage of choice for many health-conscious Americans. The reasons range from the search for purity and the promise of a sound mind and sleek body to savory taste with no calories, all in the same sip.

Its simmering bubbles are to aid digestion and its liveliness enhances wine, liqueurs, liquors such as Scotch, rye and gin and fruit and vegetable juices.

Chilled sparking mineral water is the quintessential aperitif when served in along stemmed wineglass with a slice of lemon or lime.

Unflavored sparkling water on ice is pleasant and enjoyable.
