Give Your Drinks A Real Buzz With Fizzy Lizzy

I recently discovered some incredible juice drinks at my local Whole Foods. Known as "Fizzy Lizzy" this award winning beverage is a combination of fruit juice and 'fizzy water,' hence the name "Fizzy Lizzy." Fizzy Lizzy comes in eight different flavors (my personal favorite is pineapple, grapefruit a close second, but try
them all!). I love that they not only quench my thirst but have a high percentage of REAL juice without fillers.

You can choose to drink these alone or use them to make signature drinks, Fizzy Lizzy is a great boutique juice option for your wedding. Just toss them in a tub full of ice and they are perfect for a picnic wedding, cold and thirst quenching but pretty colors and great flavor too.

Their web site reveals there really is a REAL Fizzy Lizzy. According the the site: "One day back in 1995, Liz (yes, there’s a “Lizzy”) was riding her bike. As usual, she had a carton of grapefruit juice and a bottle of sparkling water in her backpack. You see, it was her habit to mix juice and seltzer and the only way to get that combination was to make it yourself. So she got off her bike, started mixing and had her “aha” moment. The next thing you know Liz is running a little company out of her fifth floor Manhattan walk-up, pounding the pavement and evangelizing (to anyone who would listen) about the virtues of juice and sparkling water without the usual added sugars, gums, or other junk. A new religion is born: The Fizzy Lizzy Church of Healthy Soda (TFLCHS for short). Try Fizzy Lizzy. We think you’ll join up. Whether you’re into our Cranberry or our Pineapple, all are welcome. TFLCHS has a big tent."

Stop by their web site for more information on "Fizzy Lizzy" with a list of flavors and serving ideas.
