Lime Mint Watermelon Fresca with VOSS

by Joanne on May 7, 2017

I’ll be completely honest, I’m not a fan of drinking the required amount of water throughout the day. What is it? 8 ounces a day?  Well, I looked it up and according to the Mayo Clinic, the average requirement of FLUIDS per day for women is 9 cups or 2.2 liters.  The 8 glasses per day was a reference point, easy to remember and when coupled with other fluids (let us not forget certain foods with high water content e.g. watermelon) the 9 cups was easily attainable.

If you’re not big into downing all that water, think about something with flavor.  Enter VOSS water of Norway in the new lime mint flavor.  It’s a sparkling alternative to flat water. I was recently sent 2 bottles to sample and I’m head over heels about the fresh, crisp flavor.  It’s just as healthy as drinking filtered tap water, maybe better.   VOSS water is considered Artesian water from Norway, naturally filtered and protected from pollutants.

Back to my sample of lime flavored sparkling water.  Sparkling water is one of the fastest growing categories in the beverage market.  According to a national survey by Toluna Quicksurvey, 58% of Americans are focusing on healthy lifestyle choices as warmer weather approaches.   61% try to drink more water to help with weight loss.   VOSS sparkling water flavors are lined up and ready for the rush.  Flavors include Lime Mint, Lemon Cucumber and Tangerine Lemongrass.   All natural, unsweetened with ZERO calories and packages in distinctive glass bottles (who wants plastic any way?!).

After you’ve enjoyed sipping a bit of the sparkling water, you might be ready to experiment. Here is a recipe by Dara Lyubinsky, Co-Founder and Chef at The Gather Group.

Makes 1 Cocktail

  • 1/2 cup VOSS Lime Mint Sparkling Water
  • 1 cup seedless watermelon chunks
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 2 mint leaves
  • 1 TBS Agave Nectar (I used honey)
  • 1/4 cup tequila

Combine the VOSS, watermelon, lime juice, mint leaves and agave or honey in a blender on high until frothy.  Fill a highball glass with ice and add tequila.  Pour the VOSS mix over the to, stir. Garnish with watermelon slice, lime slice and a mint leaf.

This went down waaayyy tooooo easy! So good. Still drinking it. Making more. OMG!
