It has been soooo hot and dry here in Georgia for at least a month. It might rain a bit, but as soon as it stops, the atmosphere is just muggy. And hot! That leaves us here in the west Georgia area searching for something cool and delicious to help us cool off. Enter Vintage Sparkling Water. With six flavors from which to choose, these flavored sparkling or flavored seltzer waters are made with natural flavors, and are a naturally gluten free food.They also contain no high fructose corn syrup and are calorie free. This makes them just about perfect for anyone, no matter what your tastes are.
While I was shopping at Kroger in Cedartown, I was able to find all six flavors of Vintage Sparkling Waters in the soda aisle. It was hard to decide between Pink Grapefruit, Coconut, Lemon, Lime, Original, and Cucumber Melon. I decided on the Coconut Flavor. It was on the bottom shelf, so I had to ask someone to help me pick them up. A pack of 12 cans retails for $3.99. I decided that I was going to make a Basil Strawberry Coconut Cooler so I headed over to the produce section to pick up some strawberries.
As as I got home, after I put the groceries away, I was ready to whip up my cooler. It was hotter than hot out there that day, and I was just wanting to sit down, put my feet up, and sip on a cool, refreshing drink. The recipe is really simple. I just put a cup of hulled strawberries, 2 teaspoons of sugar, a handful of ice cubes, a few basil leaves from my garden, and a cup of Coconut Vintage Sparkling Water into the blender, and started it on the “crush ice” setting. After a few seconds on crush, I switched to “puree”. When it was done, I poured into one of my white wine glasses, garnished with a sprig of basil. Delicious!
