Something Natural and Different!

Love our Black Cherry flavor but looking to spice it up a bit? We’ve got a great idea: add a sugared rim!


Whether you’re hosting a party, or simply giving yourself a special treat, this is an easy and fun way to add to an already delicious drink.


Ingredients: Something Natural Sparkling Water Black Cherry, Natural Crystallized Sugar, Black Cherry Concentrate or Extract


Step 1: Pour a tablespoon of crystallized sugar into a small bowl, add two drops of black cherry extract, or less than one teaspoon of black cherry concentrate, and mix until color is a dark red.


Fun Fact: Black cherries are part of the rose family, also known as ‘prunusserotinarosaceae’ and are a great source for vitamins and antioxidants. Oh, and because they contain serotonin, they’re also used as an all-natural sleep aid – good to know for those midnight cravings…


Step 2: Pour mixture onto a small plate and spread it evenly across the surface.


Step 3: Pull out the fanciest wine glass you have, (because what’s more fun than drinking out of a snazzy glass?), and lightly wet the rim with lemon juice (lemon helps the sugar stick). Then tip it over into the mixture, creating a colorful, healthy AND very tastyglass rim.


Step 4: Add ice, Something Natural Sparkling Water Black Cherry and for fun, toss in a striped straw!


Step 5: Sit back, relax and enjoy – you deserve it! =)
