This thread persuaded me to pick up lacroix 3/$10 today.

Tried grapefruit and I really enjoyed it. I’m not a fan of carbonated soda other than ginger ale... So this surprised me.

Can I add vodka or whiskey to these? Not sure it would taste any good without the sugar.


Yes you can and yes it would.

I’ve been a Polar advocate for a while, but I recently discovered the Walmart brand, Clear American. I’ve had black cherry, lime, and strawberry. All are really good. I don’t shop at Walmart but I might have to make a special trip

Bubly Peach is my current favorite

Aren't those sweetened? I had a cherry limeade one that was good but there was artificial sweetener in it. Not that I'm opposed to that but it's a little different.

this forum is beer brewing adjacent, right? and no one has chimed in about making their own carbonated, mineral, fruity-fied water?

 

SHAME!

 

My google-fu shows me many recipes for doing the above. I've got a couple 2.5 gal kegs and, oddly, a CO2 tank and something called a "beer fridge" which I will expand to include a liquid I can add to my vodka. For the $ I spend on bottled fizzy water definitely worth the try.

I mean, I’ve got a soda stream and have carbed up various concoctions in my cornies, but the cans are so easy

Sorry, just razzing. I have no doubt folks here have experimented with this and made some tasty stuff. Using my brew equipment to do is a new slant for me though.

Tried a cola coffee one from LA Croix. Super strange, but definitely worth trying.

The S. Peligrino flavored waters are absolutely fantastic. Expensive, but awesome.
