I’m partnering today with Schweppes – and I’m so proud to be doing so!
To quote their website, “Schweppes Tonic Water began in 1783 as the world’s original soft drink. Its founder, Jacob Schweppe, was drawn to the new art of carbonating beverages, so he refined and patented his own process of creating mineral water. Customers referred to Schweppes as “Lightning In A Bottle” because it was the first bottle of its kind to retain carbonation. Schweppes received a warrant of appointment in 1836 from King William IV of England, which significantly contributed to the popularity of the growing brand. (They went on to be) the official drink of the 1851 Great Exhibition held at the Crystal Palace in London. The event made such an impact that the fountain is still featured on the logo today. For over 230 years, Schweppes has been committed to quality and excellence.”
After a long, hot summer day in Kentucky – there’s nothing quite like unwinding with a refreshing cocktail. When it comes to mixing, Schweppes is my go-to for many reasons. It’s flavorful, refreshing, and has been trusted for over two centuries; in my book, that means they are doing something right.
The lemon-lime flavor is my favorite because it pairs well with so many cocktails. Pick it up on your next visit to the store, use it as a mixer, and thank me later.
