Wine Harlots can’t live on wine alone. We try. We try very hard, but it cannot be done. But in all seriousness, proper hydration is key when you drink booze for a living. Wine Harlots advise to drink a glass of water for each alcoholic beverage you ingest. Hint Water, the flavored water people, has introduced Hint Fizz, a sparkling water line. Wine Harlots love carbonation, but usually we get it in the form of Champagne or beer. But today it’s all about the hydration. Hint Fizz is excellent selection. No sugar, or artificial sweeteners, just sparkling water and natural flavors. Hint Fizz initial offerings are peach, blackberry, watermelon and strawberry-kiwi, which sound a little juvenile, but the taste is sophisticated. Wine Harlots favorite is watermelon, which has a subtle flavor of watermelon rind. You could add a shot of alcohol to make cocktails, but we prefer to drink them straight, no chaser. Hint Fizz is widely available, our local Whole Foods carries the line at the price of $1.89 a bottle. Hint Fizz, hydration never tasted so delicious.
