I know you guys love freebies as much as I do. So, I know you are going to be excited with the news that I have to share!  The folks at Sparkling Ice have a brand new sweepstakes just for all of us Publix shoppers.

In preparation for Cinco de Mayo, Sparkling Ice is offering up a prize pack to help you create the ultimate margarita!

TWO winners will get an Ultimate Margarita Prize Pack that includes the following:

  • Margaritaville® Key West™ Frozen Concoction Maker®
  • 4 Margarita Glasses
  • Margarita Salt

Simply text CINCO DE MAYO to 31996 or enter online at cincodemayo.sparklingreward.com

The sweepstakes runs 4/1 – 4/22 and you can enter once every day! Remember it’s only for folks in Publix areas (AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, TN, or VA) which means the odds are so much better than a national contest open to everyone. Of course…you can’t win if you don’t enter!

Now, I happen to love a good margarita and already own a version of that margarita machine. I can tell you for fact that my drink machine gets used quite often at my house. During the spring/summer, I don’t even bother putting it in the pantry. It stays out on the counter so that it’s handy when needed.

I have probably 5 or 6 different drinks that I can whip up in a flash using that handy machine and my favorite Sparkling Ice flavors. One of my favorites of all time is a mixture of Sparkling Ice Coconut Pineapple and Coconut Rum. It’s my all time favorite drink to sip by the pool. In fact, I make them  often, I don’t even measure anymore–I just eyeball it and the drink comes out perfect every single time!

Now with Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, I thought you guys might like a quick and DELICIOUS recipe to help you celebrate. Stop by your local Publix and pick up a couple of bottles of Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime and whip up a tasty margarita in just minutes. It’s a classic margarita with a fabulous citrus twist!

Of course the recipe can be tweaked with any of the tasty Sparkling Ice flavors that you love. How about a Peach Nectarine Margarita? Rim the glass with sugar and cut the lime juice by half and use Sparkle Ice Peach Nectarine in place of the Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime drink. Maybe a Pomegranate Blueberry Margarita…the options are endless!

And just a heads up that you guys in the South Florida area can whip up something tasty with the new Guava flavor from Sparkling Ice. This flavor is only available for select areas so if you are in the South Florida area, you definitely want to give it a try!

Remember, Sparkling Ice is a refreshing and bold sparkling water that’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants. You get all the real fruit flavor that you crave without sugar and calories. With so many flavors available, the hard part will be deciding which to choose. My tip…grab a couple of each and enjoy great refreshment anytime!
