R.W. Knudsen Spritzers: New Delicious Flavors!
There is good news for all of us who have been enjoying the refreshing line of Sparkling Essence™ beverages the past two years: R.W. Knudsen Family® has recently introduced two new flavors to the sparkling medley of these guilt-free, organic drinks! Like the first four flavors, Organic Lime and Organic Coconut are calorie-free, certified organic, and contain no sugars or artificial ingredients of any kind. These two new flavors are joining the existing varieties of Organic Lemon, Organic Cucumber, Organic Blueberry and Organic Mint.
Navigating product labels can feel like an exam in college chemistry class—confusion, an elevated pulse rate, and panic. Sparkling Essence quells that anxiety. Not only are they refreshing to drink, but they are refreshing in the transparency and simplicity of the ingredients list. The creation of this flavorful drink utilizes a unique process. Using only organic ingredients, R.W. Knudsen Family brews them in pure spring water and then extracts everything except the flavor’s “essence.”
Very few companies have been as deeply dedicated to organic practices for as long as R.W. Knudsen Family. Long before the average consumer even knew what “organic” meant, the company was using organic ingredients out of their enduring commitment to reducing the amount of synthetic pesticides and herbicides used in agricultural practices. In fact, in 1997, R.W. Knudsen Family was the first processor in the country to volunteer to become a certified organic processing facility. They have stayed true to that standard in their creation of new products—including Sparkling Essence.
For those of us who crave a light and invigorating beverage without all of the additional calories, the Sparkling Essence line is the perfect antidote. Each Essence comes in an attractively slim can, making enjoyment easy whether one is at work, on the go, relaxing, or at a summer party.
Apart from the beverage’s ability to stand alone as a satisfying refreshment, it offers limitless possibilities for exciting mocktails that are great for kids, families, or a gathering with friends.
Here are a few recipe ideas to start the summer celebrations off right:
Ginger Lime Mocktail
¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
