Sparkling This Summer

VOSS is the BOSS


In a few short years, sparkling water has gone from a specialty beverage to a supermarket staple. More Americans than ever are kicking sugary sodas to the curb and choosing zero-calorie carbonated beverages instead. It’s not hard to see why. Flavored sparkling water comes with all the benefits of drinking water—increased energy, clearer skin and balanced fluid levels—with none of the boring taste.

This month, Pink Magazine teamed up with VOSS Water to expand the definition of what flavored waters can do. Not only do these natural, refreshing beverages tasteamazing, they also make delicious additions to summer cocktails! VOSS Sparkling Waters come in three flavors: Tangerine Lemongrass, Lemon Cucumber, and the brand-new Lime Mint. Add alcohol, or fruit for a lip-smacking smoothie.

When we talked to VOSS about featuring drink recipes, VOSS Water expert Dara Lyubinsky took our challenge to heart and created an exclusive recipe just for us! Enjoy two of her masterpieces here, and log onto social media to keep up-to-date on all their newest releases and recipes. Stay sparkly!
