When it comes to drinks, Germans like to mix it up. In the non-alcoholic category, the extremely popular juice and sparkling water combinations known as "Schorle" (fruit spritzers) are available in every restaurant, café or bar and are even sold premixed. An important note on Germany's sparkling water is that it is not merely purified drinking water with added carbonation but usually comes from mineral springs all across Germany's famous mountain ranges. Consequently, these waters are high in essential minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium which are especially important for re-hydration during the hot summer months.
