Up against the likes of flat water, soda, and juices; sparkling water gets the privilege of having the title of, “The Red-Headed Step-Child of  All Beverages”. Those of you who dislike it should try to look at it this way: what did you think of your first sip of beer after you began your teenage years guzzling Bartles and James? I’m sure you can still feel how your face cringed whence it hit your palette. Today, you’re making your family tree proud, slamming them down with no remorse like WWE Superstar Stone Cold Steve Austin. Sparkling water is severely underrated and it’s not, by any means, as foul as your first sip of beer. Upside: it helps your digestive system.  Downside: It makes you pee.  That’s a fair tradeoff. So to all of you Cola fiends out there, step your non-alcoholic beverage game up and pour yourself a glass of the bubbly goodness. Please, don’t forget to squeeze in some lime. My personal favorite is S.Pellegrino, and that’s partially due to the fact that it’s readily available. You can pick yourself up a case of S.Pellegrino for $15 at your local CostCo.
