Summertime goes easier with a cool, refreshing drink. As a girl who grew up in the hot, humid temperatures of the sunshine state I learned pretty early that besides general hydration, treating yourself to a cool drink when things start to get heated can take the edge off. Sure, iced coffee is great but I rarely stretch past my one cup a day rule, leaving plenty of room for other options. So, when the afternoon hits and I'm looking for something cool, refreshing and sweet,IZZE is usually the first one on my mind. Sparkling juice? Yes please!
I've been a fan of the brand since they came on the scene years back and they continue to win my heart with their insanely delicious flavors. They're the perfect anytime essential and are easily enjoyed at home while shamelessly binging on your latest TV series obsession or on-the-go, be it casually window shopping in the area, an impromtu picnic in the park or heading to a backyard bbq with friends. They are great stand alone drinks and have made excellent mixers, making them a must have for any at-home hosting.
My personal favorite is and quite possibly will always be the grapefruit. It's tangy, sweet and has just the right amount of sparkle (fizz). It doesn't hurt that it perfectly matches this week's mani. Don't love grapefruit? It's ok, they have 7 more flavors to choose from: Clementine, Apple, Blackberry, Pomegranate, Cherry Lime, Blueberry and Peach. I can appreciate that each bottle clocks in at around 120 calories, no refined sugar or preservatives and consists of at least 70% juice (the rest being sparkling water, of course).
I usually reach for the cans as part of my picnic basket essentials but there's something so classic and fun about IZZE's colorfully filled bottles that I couldn't resist toting them along with me to the park to meet up with the girls earlier this week for a couple of hours. A chilled 4-pack of IZZE Sparkling Juice Grapefruit, sweet and savory snacks, paired with an afternoon of catching up on our adventures and misadventures was a match made in picnicking heaven. The light, fresh, bubbly crispness of IZZE really brings out the sweet flavor of easy summer afternoons with friends.
Grab a pack and enjoy what's left of your summer together.
