Seltzer's superpowers go beyond transforming plain old water into an exciting, bubbly refreshment — it also provides alcohol with a versatile, calorie-free mixer to create any number of tasty cocktails (or mocktails).

Inspired by New York Fashion Week, Polar Seltzer styled and accessorized (aka garnished) these creative drinks so you can sip in style.


The Buyers

These cocktails are straight and to the point! Just bubbles, fruit and a good sense of style.


The Tailor

Clean lines with an Italian story. Sparkling lemon Polar seltzer adds to the charms of Lemoncello.


The Publicist

Intense and long-lasting. That's the inspiration for this sparkling later-afternoon highball.

• 1 part vanilla vodka
• 1 part Drambuie
• Polar orange-vanilla seltzer
• Orange or lemon peel

Build the drink in a highball glass by pouring vodka and Drambuie over crushed ice. Top generously with seltzer and stir gently. 


The Market Editor

Anyone who spends half their time on an airplane searching for the newest designs always looks forward to the comforts of home. In this case, it's a sparkling version of a whiskey sour.

• 2 ounces quality American bourbon (whiskey)
• 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
• Egg white
• Polar vanilla seltzer
• Optional: 1 teaspoon agave

Vigorously shake the whiskey, lemon juice and egg white in a shaker. Once there is a bit of froth, pour over ice in a double old-fashioned glass. Top generously with seltzer.


The Patron

Every young American designer needs a sparkling European patron. A perfect combination of old world and new.

• 2 parts Campari
• 1 part quality gin
• Polar orange-vanilla seltzer
• Splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice

Begin by chilling Campari, the gin and the lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into glasses, and then top generously with seltzer.


The Assistant

The ultra "skinny" cocktail gets the job done.

• 2 ounces quality lemon vodka
• Polar lemon seltzer
• Lemon peel, to rim glass and garnish
