Focus On A New You In The New Year With Sugar-Free Soda Alternative, Cascade Ice

Sparkling Waters a Favorite Among Families as a Healthier Alternative to Soda

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As New Year resolutions are being thought out, stop making the "health conscious" resolutions that are hard to keep and stick to something that can make a difference in your life. Unique Beverage Company, LLC wants you to start 2013 off with a bang by making the right choices for your body.  Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Water, one of the company's most popular beverage lines, is encouraging people everywhere to kick sodas to the curb and exchange that sugary habit with an equally satisfying Cascade Ice. 

Cascade Ice Waters are available for purchase in 49 states, in such store chains as Albertson's, Fred Meyers, Winn Dixie, Safeway, QFC, A&P, Raley's, Fareway, Coborn's, HEB, Market Basket and Winco, among many others. Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Water is free of unnecessary and unhealthy "extras" found in other flavored waters like calories, sodium, caffeine, gluten and sugar. Compared to many popular soda brands which can contain upwards of 38 grams of sugar, Cascade Ice beverages are sugar-free and full of flavor.

Cascade Ice has over 21 delicious and unique flavors including Coconut, Pink Grapefruit, Berry Pomegranate and Lemonade. The sparkling waters have a delightful "fizz" combined with natural fruit juices. Cascade Ice also has a line of skinny cocktail mixers in 6 classic flavors including Margarita, Cosmopolitan and Apple Tini.

Remember to create realistic goals for the New Year and don't limit yourself, just make a decision and stick to it.  Here are some delightfully fizzy drink recipes for you to make, so you definitely will not be missing those high-cal, high sugar sodas.

Grapefruit Sparkler
Energize your family with a kick of grapefruit. Per serving, mix 6oz of Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Pink Grapefruit with 3oz of club soda. Squeeze in some lime wedges for a zesty twist. Garnish with small grapefruit wedges and you're ready to serve.

Berry Pomegranate Cooler
To incorporate more fruit into your diet, try a Cascade Ice Berry Pomegranate Cooler. Start with a cup of fresh strawberries, half a cup of ice cubes and 5oz Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Cranberry Pomegranate. Blend all the ingredients together and garnish with a couple of pomegranate seeds.

Apple Cinnamon Fizz-azz
Mix 4oz of Cascade Ice McIntosh Apple with 2oz of spiced apple cider in a glass with ice. Pour in 2oz of champagne to add some extra fizz. Add a green apple wedge and a cinnamon stick to complete this refreshing cocktail. Pour contents into a martini glass and garnish with both green and red apple slices for a delicious party drink.
