PRODUCT: Dry Soda

Not just for salads: Cucumber is a
sophisticated sip. Photo courtesy of Dry
Soda.

As with a dry Martini, Dry Soda is a brand that delivers less sweetness: a 12-ounce bottle of our favorite Cucumber Soda has only 45 calories and 11 carbs. Cucumber soda, you say? It’s wonderful, just like a refreshing glass of cucumber-infused water (or in this case, cucumber sparkling water with a touch of sweetness).

You’ll feel cool as a cucumber with a glass, whether sipping or pairing with foods. Cucumber Dry Soda is a natural with gazpacho, grilled eggplant and other vegetables (and many vegetarian dishes), Mediterranean foods, salmon and tandoori. As a cocktail mixer, it marries with citrus vodka, tequila and of course, cucumber gin.

If cucumber isn’t your thing, Dry Soda’s other flavors include Juniper Berry, Kumquat, Lavender, Lemongrass, Rhubarb and Vanilla. We have other favorites among these, as well.

TIP OF THE DAY: Perfect Peaches

August 22nd is Eat a Peach Day, so here are some tips on how to choose the perfect one. First, take a deep whiff—the peach should smell sweet and perfumey. Then, give it a once-over. The skin should be covered with an even, downy fuzz and shouldn’t be bruised. Finally, handle with care! Ripe peaches are delicate. Even if they feel hard, place them on top of all the other groceries in the bag to protect them from blemishes.
