Seltzer/Sparkling Water Discussion

Been buying a lot of Spindrift grapefruit lately. I need to find it cheaper than a buck a can at Whole Foods, because my gf and I can pound them...
 
So I've tried basically all of the seltzer brands now. I like Spindrift the best, but it's a little bit too close to sparkling juice (because it has real juice in it). On the other the flavors in La Croix, Waterloo etc. taste too fake.

I think what I need is Spindrift with a little less juice. Probably will just spring for a Soda Stream at some point.

Also, our local brewery is now producing hard seltzers. The 3 can options they are starting with are lemon-line, ginger and lemongrass. Had a little taste of the lemon-lime last night and it tasted like Sprite - at 5%, 100 cals, 1 gram of sugar. These are going to be dangerous for the beach.

Emily likes Spindrift and the Trader Joe's knockoff version so we buy those a lot. The carbonation isn't right to me though. I need that harsh fizz.
 
Costco had Waterloo mix 24 packs (Grapefruit/Black Cherry/Watermelon) for 5.49 in place of La Croix.

First time trying it, and soooo much better. Wife disagrees, so I guess we’re a split household now. Dog custody battle to start soon.
Those are my three favorite flavors. The fuck am I doing over here with my $5.99 12 packs.
