Introduction:Most of us don't drink enough water in a day but if know the top five benefits of drinking club soda (aka seltzer water or soda water), you might find that it's much easier to get in those 8 glasses of water a day.
In fact, I love club soda so much, I have a SodaStream club soda maker that I carry from my house to the boat. I always have club soda seltzer water available that way! See my article in the resource section below - the review of the SodaStream Club Soda maker.
Club soda is really just plain water with bubbles. Just the fact that club soda has bubbles makes it more interesting than plain water. And, if you buy a SodaStream club soda maker for home use (it has a CO2 cartridge that adds bubbles to plain water), you can control the amount of bubbles in your particular seltzer water.
If you don't have a very good burp reflex (like me), drinking a few sips of club soda will make you burp. Now, if you're a burper by nature, this might not be a benefit of drinking club soda seltzer water.
...usually. Pricing will depend on if the club soda comes from a soda gun behind the bar or is served in bottles. If the seltzer water is 'on the gun,' some places won't charge you for it as they consider it just water. But, if you have to order a bottle of club soda, you're sure to get a bill for the pleasure.
If your server looks at you like you're a nut when you order club soda or seltzer water, try to ask for soda water. For some reason, most servers know club soda by this term.
A cold bottle of club soda pulled straight out of the refrigerator on a steamy day will refresh you like no other drink. Pour it over ice and add a squeeze of lemon to further the refreshment.
Now, this might not be a benefit for you but a crisp vodka and club soda will get you pleasantly buzzed pretty quickly. I usually refresh my drink with additional club soda so, by the time I totally finish the drink, I'm down just to the soda water. I don't drink as much alcohol this way.
We use our home Sodastream club soda maker on our boat so we don't have to tote a lot of plastic bottles around with us. All we need is the Sodastream fountain maker, the thermos that comes with it, and fresh water. A few spritzes of the handle and, voila! Instant club soda.
Great list, thank you.
Neat info I did not know!
Thanks for the list of benefits. I will have to remember these wonderful benefits.
I am a naturally FINE burper, but this sounds like a great way to drink more water!
Wow, you list is good! I can add that is all I could keep down when I had morning sickness with my 3 children. h5
This is so true about club soda. Some of us just love the bubbles.
