Do You Sip Sparkling Water?

A couple of years ago, when I stopped drinking soda but still craved something carbonated, I started sipping sparkling water. Every afternoon, I would make a "sparkling water cocktail" with ice, water, and fresh citrus. Slowly but surely, I turned my best friend, mom, and sister into sparkling water addicts. Now I drink so much of the stuff, I want to get a sparkling water maker. How do you feel about it?

I loooove Pellegrino but for some reason don't like Perrier. I used to not like sparkling water but after visiting France I developed a taste for it!

I also have a sodastream and love it. I drink a lot more water now than I did before. I've had it for half a year and have not had to change the cyllinder yet.

i drink gallons of it. got a carbonator (sodastream) as a bday gift about a year ago and love love love it. cheaper, easier, and SO much greener than buying bottled. carbonators are not cheap, but neither is store bought seltzer - not to mention of greater cost of all that plastic! and you can make it as fizzy (or not) as you want!

I like it in the summer with lemon or lime slices. Very refreshing.

took a while for me to like, but now I love it! my favourite is chaudfontaine for drinking everyday and san pellegrino for dining or whatever the restaurant has; oddly enough, I think it enhances the flavour of food...

Yuck! For some reason carbonated water just doesn't taste or sit right in my stomach. When I was studying in Italy I'd always have to check carefully whether or not I got still or sparkling- I've had a couple of unfortunate surprises where I'd have to give it to a friend instead. :T

Love it. I frequently drink Wegmans brand Italian Sparkling water. The lemongrass flavor is my favorite.

I'm staring at a bottle of Crystal Geyser orange flavor as I type this message. =)

I LOVE Pellegrino and prefer glass bottles since I feel they hold the bubbles in better than the plastic.

Love. But I usually only opt for it if I'm going to a place that offers still or sparkling on tap. That is my favorite! Otherwise, it just doesn't seem worth it to spent $2.50 on a teeny bottle of San Pellegrino. And for me, the cheaper stuff just doesn't cut it — it's not carbonated in the same way.
