Simple Mardi Gras drinks to celebrate Fat Tuesday with less calories

The folks at Sparkling Ice reached out to me about trying some of their lightly carbonated, zero-calorie beverage which is made of sparkling water, fruit juice, vitamins, antioxidants, and boasts of using natural flavors. They have some samples on their way, but the flavors they offer sound pretty yummy already. I will let you know what I think about the flavors, and I can’t wait to check on the ingredients and verify the natural flavors they are boasting about.

It’s Fat Tuesday already and I am not prepared. It seems to be a theme for me. I am really trying to be healthier, but I think having a celebratory drink, or a stress reducing drink once in a while is good for the soul. Here are a few drink recipes that the folks at Sparkling Ice shared that sounded like good themed Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras drinks.
