Yum Pairings for the Season – or Any Time!
We all deserve a treat this holiday season! A chilled can of Waterloo is the perfect zero-sugar pairing with your favorite dessert treat. It’s all about balance, right?
With that in mind, we’ve curated a special selection of bite-size cupcakes (from NYC-based Baked by Melissa) that pair well with two of our most popular Waterloo flavors – Black Cherry and Lemon-Lime.
The tasting notes and flavor pairings below will guide you in your next fun friend’s night, big family holiday dinner, or a quiet self-care evening at home.

Waterloo Black Cherry is full of ripe, dark fruit flavor and pairs perfectly with decadent Triple Chocolate Fudge cupcake. Chocolate-covered cherries? Yes, please.
We also love the PB&J cupcake paired with our Waterloo Black Cherry. The cupcake’s rich, creamy peanut butter tastes incredible with the deep cherry of our sparkling water. The light sweetness in Waterloo Black Cherry also brings out the jammy flavor of the jelly center and the subtle vanilla in the cake. Balanced and delightful!
The Tie-Dye cupcake is a fun, colorful take on vanilla. This classic pairs great with our Waterloo Lemon-Lime. The sweet vanilla perfectly offsets against the bright citrus, while also bringing out the sweet finish of our sparkling water. These flavors took us straight back to childhood birthday parties, drinking lemon-lime soda and eating birthday cake!
Waterloo Lemon-Lime is also the perfect partner for the Cookies & Cream cupcake. We love the mix of slightly bitter chocolate cookies and sweet cream with the refreshing lemon and lime flavors. This pairing is a real treat for the taste buds.
Now, for the Chocolate Chip Pancake cupcake, we were torn. Coupled with Waterloo Black Cherry, the chocolate chip flavor is at full volume – for lovers of extra choco chips! With Waterloo Lemon-Lime, we are loving the contrast between our citrusy carbonation and the light maple sweetness of the cupcake. You can’t go wrong – either pairing is yum!
