Grog in the Water: A Scientific Bottled Water Taste Test. 3

For this third installment of the grog water taste testing series, JB suggested we do one with sparkling water.   Strange idea, but hey, this is the grog after all.

My first experience with sparkling water was when I went to Belgium in 1999.  I was at a cafe and I asked for a water, and he replied "sparkling or still?"  or "bubbles or still?".  Still water sounded pretty lame so I went with the sparkling, and to my horror I discovered that sparkling water is what I would have called at the time, soda water.

I have not seen any research on this but I am willing to be that the consumption of sparkling water in Europe is astronomical, while in the great USA it is almost unheard of.

But JB being the super worldly guy that he is, he prefers sparkling.  Unfortunately, JB and his lover/veteran grogger had to depart from the grog party early.  So we only had one person left in our grog group who actually prefers sparkling water, and that of course is Christina, also super worldly and hip.

Next time we are thinking about doing a beer taste test which sounds like fun, so there is that to look forward to!   But for now,   find out who won best sparkling water in the grogaverse after the jump...
