When you think St. Patrick’s Day – what are a few things that come to mind? For me, it’s leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, Irish whiskey, corned beef and cabbage, soda bread, and colcannon. Another thing that comes to mind when you think of delicious Irish food and drinks? Calories!
With a little help from our friends at Sparkling Ice, you don’t have to worry about the calories when you whip up these shamrock-inspired cocktails and mocktails this year! Serve your guests and family these delicious drinks and they’ll be raving about how light and refreshing they are for weeks to come. If they want to know your secret, just tell them it’s thanks to Sparkling Ice!
Let’s be honest. Nobody likes to be thought of as “bland” so why should what you drink be? I’ve been slowly cutting out soda completely from my diet in order to get my body healthier. Sparkling Ice makes doing so SUPER SIMPLE with all of the delicious flavors and varieties available. I’m challenging all of my readers to give up their usual go-to drink for just two weeks and switch to Sparkling Ice. Come on everyone and let’s #GetFizzy!
