Three Cocktails to Make Now That Clearly Canadian is Back

Hipsters and Brooklynites have been on a (nearly unexplainable) La Croix and sparkling water binge for years now. But that may be about to change. Clearly Canadian — the cult sparkling water of the 1990s — is back in it’s iconic bottles.

Clearly Canadian, if you need a little reminder, is a gently bubbling, fruity water that goes down like candy. For some unknown reason it disappeared in 2009. La Croix and other imposters took its place, fueling bloggers everywhere. Then in 2015, a crowdfunding campaign promised the drink would return. Now, it’s time for some Clearly Canadian.

The company told Real Simple that it’ll be in Cost Plus World Market and Hy-Vee stores across the country. The returning flavors are Blackberry, Wild Cherry, and Orchard Peach.

This isn’t the 90s anymore, though. Enjoy the return of Clearly Canadian like an adult: in a cocktail.
