3 Bright and Festive Cocktails to Serve During the Holidays

by Cascade Ice on December 20, 2022


Whether you’re planning to entertain for the holidays or just want some fresh ideas to help brighten up your holiday season, it’s a great idea to have some low-sugar, low-calorie cocktail (and mocktail!) ideas at the ready. Holiday cocktails are typically notorious for being super sweet and heavy with syrupy elixirs and heavy creams, which also add extra fat and calories to your diet. Why not change things up with these light and refreshing cocktails that will be sure to put you in the spirit! 

Cranberry Pomegranate Punch

  • Bottle of Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Cranberry Pomegranate 
  • Bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon wine
  • ½ frozen container of cranberry juice
  • Fresh cranberries and pomegranate seeds
  • Juice from one lime
  • 3 cups of ice

In a large punch bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until frozen juice is dissolved. Serve over ice in preferred glass. To make a mocktail punch, simply triple the Cascade Ice and juice and omit the wine. Garnish with rosemary, mint or lime for a festive touch! 

Snowy Day Spritz

  • Bottle of Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Coconut
  • 1.5 oz. Vodka
  • 1 tbsp. sugar 
  • Juice from ½ lime 
  • Sliced lime for garnish

Take a short cocktail glass and dip the rim onto a plate with the lime juice, followed by a plate with the sugar and coat it. Next, pour the vodka over ice followed by the Cascade Ice. Garnish the glass with a lime wedge and sprig of holly or mistletoe if you’re feeling fancy!

I’m Dreaming of a Pink Holiday

  • 1 cup Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Pink Grapefruit
  • 1 1/2 cups lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 cup Tequila
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Lemon wedges

Garnish the rim of a tall champagne glass or highball glass with coarse salt. Combine vodka, lemon juice, triple sec, honey and ice in a cocktail shaker and pour contents into the glass over ice. Fill to the top with Cascade Ice and garnish with a lemon wedge. Simply omit the alcohol for a delicious mocktail version!

Brighten your day with a Skinny Fiesta Mule Cocktail

by Cascade Ice on October 4, 2022

Hands down the best, most refreshing cocktail has to be the Moscow Mule. But lately people have put their own spin on the famous cocktail by swapping different liquors and ingredients or adding in different elements to make it fun and different. And that’s what we’ve done with our Cascade Ice Skinny Fiesta Mule! This flavorful, light cocktail is made with tequila, lime, ginger and of course – Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water

To keep this cocktail low in sugar and calories, we recommend finding real ginger syrup at your local store – it typically has all natural ingredients and lower amounts of sugar compared to ginger beer that is typically used in mule cocktails. The Cascade Ice will add the bubbles and fizz back in! Of course, if you’d like a mocktail, feel free to omit the liquor altogether from the recipe. Read on for how to whip up a fun, easy drink that won’t sabotage your health goals!


2 oz Tequila blanco

1 oz Ginger syrup

½ oz Lime juice

3 oz Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water in Ginger Lime


Lime wedges


Add tequila, lime Juice, and ginger syrup to your favorite glass (or a traditional copper mug!) and gently stir together ingredients to combine. Fill glass with ice and top with Cascade Ice and garnish with lime wedges. Enjoy!

Need a Cocktail Recipe for a Sparkling Summer? Try this Sparkling Sour!

by Cascade Ice on July 25, 2022

It’s a hot one out there! Looking for a new cocktail idea that won’t sabotage your health goals with added sugar and calories? Here at Cascade Ice Water, we love to put a new spin on classic cocktails so that you can enjoy Happy Hour without all the extras. 

An old favorite is the Whiskey Sour – it’s a tasty drink that is notoriously tart and sweet. Our version has only 4 simple ingredients, which makes for the ultimate summer refreshment! Plus, as always, you can omit the alcohol to make a low-sugar mocktail. 

If you can believe it, the Whiskey Sour has been consumed for centuries! It was a drink beloved by sailors, because of the risk for scurvy, which is caused in part by vitamin C deficiency. Because of this, citrus fruits were something used daily by sailors to keep them in good health. Also, whiskey can be kept at room temperature, so it was a favorite to have on board. However, it wasn’t until 1862 that the Whiskey Sour recipe was first officially recorded in “The Bartender’s Guide.” To make our lower-calorie and lower-sugar Cascade Ice version, simply gather our list of ingredients below and you’ll be sipping this refreshing concoction in no time! 

Cascade Ice Sparkling Sour



1.5 oz. whiskey or bourbon 

½ oz. lemon juice 

1 oz. Honey 

4 oz. Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water in Citrus Twist



Combine whiskey, lemon juice, and honey to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain the contents into a glass of your choice over ice. Top with Cascade Ice. Add a cherry if you’d like! Enjoy!

Cool off with this Low-Calorie Berry Skinny Mojito

by Cascade Ice on May 26, 2022

We’ve delivered so many ideas over the years for refreshing cocktails that are low in sugar and calories, so you can stay on track with a healthy lifestyle while enjoying a nice happy hour cocktail. But this type of skinny mojito is a new one we’re adding to our favorites list!

A mojito is a classic favorite when it comes to “go-to cocktails”, but did you know that they typically contain over 200 calories and 25 grams of sugar? Who wants to drink their calories anyway? This upgraded version is a much healthier choice with less than 100 calories and only 1 gram of sugar. So, you can save those calories for delicious food!

Our low-calorie berry cucumber skinny mojito is made with fresh lime juice, white rum, mint leaves and Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water. It’s light and refreshing, low in calories and has no added sugar!

Low-Calorie Berry Skinny Mojito


Juice from 1 lime

Small bushel of fresh mint leaves

2 oz. White rum

Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water in Lemon Lime

½ cup of fresh blackberries


Add the fresh mint leaves, freshly squeezed lime juice and blackberries to a glass and muddle them together. Add rum (or omit if you want a mocktail) and fill to the top with ice, topping it with Cascade Ice, stirring slowly to combine. Garnish with fresh mint – enjoy!
