Last week, we were given the opportunity to check out the new water-based drinks from The Coca-Cola Company, called Aquarius, which come in both Lemon and Lime flavours. Sure, they may look like your standard flavoured water treats, but the health benefits that come along with the flavoursome drinks ensures that they stand out amongst a crowded market.

Each 250ml serving of Aquarius includes 20% of the recommended daily intake of essential minerals zinc or magnesium, which means they're not only perfect for hydration when on-the-go, but to keep you topped up with replenishing minerals at the same time.

The Lemon flavour is coupled with zinc, which contributes to normal cognitive function; whilst the Lime is coupled with magnesium, which contributes to reducing tiredness and fatigue. With hot water continuing to wear us down quicker than usually expected, they can be a much-welcome addition to anyone's daily routine.

On a personal level, Aquarius is now a label known by everybody in my household. They proved to be a real knockout for all of us, and it didn't take long for the crates of drink that were delivered to be emptied!

Lemon with zinc was my personal favourite; the balancing of flavours was spot-on whereas at times, the Lime felt a little overpowering. Not to the point where it's undrinkable, but I could see myself drinking two or three Lemon Aquarius a day, whereas I'd only enjoy a single bottle of Lime.

Other flavoured water drinks on the market should be worried by the arrival of Aquarius. Whilst there are only two flavours available right now, we imagine The Coca-Cola Company is cooking up many more behind-the-scenes, with further health benefits.

It's going to be very interesting to see just how the market responds to Aquarius, and how quickly people will begin to shift their routines to include a bottle of the new drink.

Aquarius is available at select retailers nationwide in 400ml and 900ml sizes, as well as a 4x pack of 400ml bottles.
