BLACKBERRY LEMON SPARKLING WATER
This delicious sparkling water recipe combines lemon-flavored water with fresh blackberries and even black pepper or cinnamon, if you’re so inclined! It was one that I ended up loving WAY MORE than I thought I would. Like, I thought I would enjoy the taste, for sure, or I wouldn’t have put it on the blog. I just had no idea how MUCH I would end up loving it.

BLUEBERRY SPARKLING WATER
This one was another surprise. In this case you can definitely use lime or lemon sparkling water. Either will work just fine. And while I think you can change out fresh and frozen fruit, I tend to like fresh blueberries in this recipe because thawing blueberries often get watery or mushy. I also like to add either cinnamon or cardamom. The spice adds an extra kick of flavor.

STRAWBERRY LIME SPARKLING WATER
This sparkling water recipe made me smile. I love strawberries, and I excepted to like this one right off the bat. But, again, I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it. And unlike Blueberry Sparkling Water, using frozen fruit in this one works just fine. The frozen berries can even stand for ice cubes. And for this recipe, I keep it super simple. I don’t even add extra spices or herbs. Maybe just a sprig or two of mint, but even that’s getting a little fancy for me!

RASPBERRY LIME SPARKLING WATER
Raspberry Lime sparkling water is a favorite of mine, for sure. So I used it again as a base for this sparkling water recipe. And like Strawberry Lime Sparkling Water, frozen berries will work just fine here. Ginger is a wonderful addition to this sparkling water recipe, if you’re in the mood to shake things up a bit!

MIXED BERRY SPARKLING WATER
Because why not go for broke with mixed berry sparkling water and frozen mixed berries? Double the flavor. Double the joy. But, no, we did not double the mint this time. However, I did use exclusively frozen fruit this time because I wanted a super-simple, no-prep recipe. Mixed Berry Sparkling Water fits that bill. And the flavor will knock your socks off, especially if you sprinkle a little cinnamon or cardamom into your glass. It worked for K-Hubs. And I’m not any better. I go back for more each day.

Truth be told, all of these sparkling water recipes are my favorites. Picking one is like picking a favorite child. It simply can’t be done because each recipe offers its own unique flavor. Whether it’s pepper or cinnamon or cardamom or none of the above, these drinks just ooze summer living.
