It’s about time we started thinking about what we’re going to drink at summer picnics and BBQs, isn’t it? Really, it’s never too soon to start thinking about this if you ask me. You all know how firmly I believe cocktails are an important part of my everyday survival, and they are even more important when there’s food involved.

The source of this cocktail actually starts out with an old old old obsession with soda. I was brought up on Diet Coke (which I can no longer stand, funny enough) and in my teenage years I worked my way over to normal Coke, then back to the diet sodas once I gained about 10lbs. Of course it wasn’t too long before everyone started telling me how horrible diet sodas are for you because of the chemicals involved. I tried and tried to give it up, but those bubbles had me hooked and I knew no other way to get them into my diet without getting yelled at. 

It was around this time that I met one of my besties, Jen, who had an addiction to sparkling water. Everywhere we’d go, she’s order a soda water with lime. I finally tried it and I was hooked. I ditched the soda almost immediately and flavored soda water became a new obsession that I still cling to today. It was only a matter of time before that sparkling water worked its way into my cocktails, right? However, after a while, you start adding up the cost and phew, I’m still spending just as much on soda water as I was on soda.

Enter the KitchenAid® Sparkling Beverage Maker – aka my sparkling beverage fix that is cost effective! My friend Jen already has one of these bad boys and when she first showed me its magic, I knew I had to get one.

Now, in seconds, I have sparkling water (extra bubbly for my taste buds) and I can flavor it any way I please. It’s genius! I’m no longer paying bonkers money to get my soda water fix plus I can experiment with SO many different flavors. Even a clumsy dork of a girl like myself can use it, which is saying something.

Anyway, as soon as I got this KitchenAid® Sparkling Beverage Maker I knew one thing had to happen – a cocktail. DUH.

The sparkling peach water is perfect accent for the sour lemon and sharp bourbon in this cocktail. It brings just the right amount of sweetness to the party and it’s lip-smackin’ refreshment in every sip. You can’t help but say “ahhhh” after every crispy and fizzy sip.

Every year I inevitably come up with something to sit on the porch in a rocking chair with, and this is the best one I’ve made this year.

There’s a little Southern girl in me somewhere, I swear.

    Personally, I’m hooked on *plain* sparkling water, but fruit flavors are a close second: lemon, lime, strawberry, mango. So my first would probably be plain, but then I’d go on to the fruity ones.

    This would be awesome… I helped take care of someone a few years ago with major health probs. To get him off brand sodas and off sugar we bought him a machine similar to this but not with as high of quality. He fell in love the sparkling natural waters we got him on! Having this is a great encouragement for those that need to hydrate more. I would love this! I would start with sparkling lime mint water or lemon mint with a slice of fresh ginger added to bottle! Fingers crossed! 

  55. Tabathia B — April 25, 2016 at 8:24 pm (#)

    I would like to try sweet tea or orange flavored beverage

  56. Maggie Smith — April 28, 2016 at 7:37 am (#)

    I suppose I would try lemon lime first! Thanks!!
