We’ve all heard the laundry list of reasons to avoid soda — high-fructose corn syrup, empty calories and some questionable preservatives. We’re also aware that it’s sometimes simply impossible to resist grabbing a can from the fridge or mixing up a fizzy cocktail. So what’s a Glitter Girl to do?
Luckily, Dry Soda gives soda-lovers everywhere an easy solution. With just four all-natural ingredients (including real cane sugar!) and a refined taste, Dry Sodas contain a fraction of the sugar and calories of a traditional can of pop! From floral lavender to tangy rhubarb, you’re sure to come away utterly impressed by Dry Soda’s intriguing selection of flavors. Grab a 4-pack of your favorite — or experiment and buy a mixed assortment! Dry Soda also just released their Discovery Pack — which contains Cherry, Blood Orange and Vanilla flavors!
And while these drinks are delicious straight out of the bottle, their sophisticated flavors are especially brilliant when used in cocktails! Our editorial director Caitlin stocked up on some interesting flavors and then got to work stirring and sipping. Click through for her yummy combos — they’re exactly the kind of refreshment we crave on a hot summer day!
