Sparkling Ice Launch at German Gymnasium

When it comes to cocktail mixers, there are the classics (tonic water, soda water etc.) and then there’s the rest.

To be honest, I usually don’t care much about said ‘rest’. Coke? Nah. Strange-flavour soda. No thank you.

But there’s a new kid on the block and it’s going to change your Summer cocktail game forever.

I first discover Sparkling Ice at its UK launch party at the swanky German Gymnasium a few days ago.

And OMG is this place stunning!

Breath-taking architecture, spotless service and loads of delightful little details, it’s the sort of place restaurant-lover dreams are made of.

A dream made even better by perfectly mixed cocktails, highlighting Sparkling Ice products.

Hitting the shelves of supermarkets later this month, the range includes three creative flavours: Black Raspberry, Peach Nectarine & Orange Mango.

Each is bursting with real fruit flavor and just the right amount of fizz, but without any of the calories you’d usually get in that sort of drink.

Now, I must admit I’m no big fan of those by themselves (but if you’re a tiny bit less sensitive to the taste of sweetener than I made, I reckon you should be just fine), but they were a revelation when used as cocktail mixers.

The tartness of the Peach Nectarine flavour pairs perfectly with the deep herbal notes of basil and gin…

While the Orange Mango one makes for a very tropical drink when mixed with rum & vanilla.

Add a few nibbles…

And (of course) delightful Currywurst bites (when in Germany…)

And there you have it: the perfect summer party!

Saying I’m excited about Sparkling Ice’s launch would be quite an understatement.

I’m already dreaming up delightfully fruity recipes for picnics and garden parties (coming soon, keep your eyes peeled!) and keep my fingers crossed that Sparkling Ice soon bring the rest of its extensive range to our shelves.

Because if the possibilities already seem endless with just 3 flavours, just imagine what it would be like with all 19 of them!

Sparkling Ice will be available in all major supermarkets in the next few week and is already available at WHSmith. I was invited as a guest to the Sparkling Ice launch event.

  1. I picked up a bottle of the Peach & Nectarine Sparkling Ice at WH Smiths in Birmingham New Street station last weekend. It was lovely and refreshing. I didn’t realise it was so new on the market.
