Better bottled beverages

“Stay hydrated.”

Sometimes this is easier said than done, especially when you’re not a huge fan of plain, old-fashioned, water. 

In an ideal world we would all have our insulated thermos full of filtered spring water with us at all times. But let’s face it, sometimes that’s just not practical.

I compiled a list of Better Bottled Beverages (<50 calories per container).

This is for the person who is on-the-go and needs to grab something to drink. Also, this list is for you if you want a little flavor, fizz, or caffeine to your fluids without all the calories, sugar and chemicals of typical beverage options. Lastly, this list is for you if just want a little excitement to your typical hydration regimen.
