Q Club Superior
Pros: Svelte, Champagne-esque packaging; an amazing mixer
Cons: Technically it's a club soda.
OK, so one club soda had to make the list. You probably don't know the difference anyway. The point is, Q Club may be tasty enough, may be bougie enough, may be different enough to make a dent in LaCroix's stranglehold on the sparkling market. Despite being an unflavored club soda, it has a weird fruit-like undertone. Combined with its fancy-schmancy (but not really) aesthetic and the fact that it uses "as much carbonation as the bottle will hold" and adds "a few grains of Himalayan salt for extra suppleness," that makes this a bubbly club soda a contender. And no club soda has ever been a contender for anything ever before.
