Have you been dying for some holiday flavor in your water? Well Polar Seltzer has just introduced a line of holiday waters inspired by everything from pumpkin spice to eggnog. And like their non-flavored varieties, these will be sugar-free and have zero calories.

But does that mean we wanna chug an eggnog seltzer on a hot Miami afternoon? Maybe. These can easily be used in cocktails and drinks. For instance:

Candy Cane Martini
1 oz. vanilla vodka
1 oz. crème de cacao
1 oz. peppermint Schnapps
1 oz. Candy Cane Polar Seltzer
Garnish with candy cane crumbles

Instructions: Throw it all in an ice-filled tumbler, shake and serve.

These Polar Seltzers aren't strongly flavored since they come from chemical compounds. This stuff ain't organic. But at .99 cents a pop, we'll be loading up on these babies to make a slew of holiday delights. Ho, ho, ho, y'all.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
