Carbonated drinks and sparkling water has come a long way since the days of a club soda and a slice of lime. These days, sparkling drinks come in a rainbow of flavors and recipes - some offering an energy boost and others treating you to a dose of vitamin-infused fruit juices. There’s literally a sparkling water out there for any set of taste buds. Here are four carbonated drinks we enjoy.

A game changer

Sparkling Ice
The flavor and carbonation will blow you away - and the added antioxidants and vitamins are a nice bonus.Sparkling Ice

I'm not kidding: In an attempt to drink fewer colas, I've been trying out all the Sparkling Ice drinks, but I'm completely addicted to their orange-mango flavor (with black cherry and classic lemonade pulling in the silver and bronze medals). Each flavor is sugar- and calorie-free and is fortified with a variety of vitamins and antioxidants. Rumor has it - because I'm afraid to look - that there are some amazing cocktail recipes to make with these drinks too.

Party in a can

Monster Energy Zero Ultra
This version of Monster has a lighter taste but still packs the same energy wallop.Monster

This 24-pack of 16-ounce cans has zero sugar and zero calories but plenty of energy. Curious about the taste? Monster touts is as a slightly less sweet version of their original drink, but we detect the lovely addition of some citrus notes. It's like a fine wine - only carbonated, in a can and daring you to stay up all night.

Tongue twisters

IZZE Sparkling Juice

The 24-count variety pack includes cans of blackberry, grapefruit, clementine and apple. They're aren't no-calorie drinks, like some of the competing brands, but they do contain 70 percent fruit juice and no added sugar or preservatives.

Perrier is the big name in the carbonated mineral water field and for good reason. The bubbles and mineral bland give their drinks a truly sensational flavor. That’s why we’re so dazzled by this watermelon edition. It’s perfect for any time of the day - and great for mixing into cocktails.
