Green Bee in Brunswick, Maine, handcrafts natural honey-sweetened sodas with names like Lemon Sting and Ginger Buzz. The fizzy-beverage maker recently introduced a trio of unsweetened sparkling waters flavored simply with fresh squeezed juices ($2 to $2.50 for 12-ounces). One is Wild Blueberry, crafted with fruit picked from Maine fields and then put through an old-style Italian wine press. Ginger is made with fresh ginger, the root sliced paper-thin and pressed to extract its juice, the flavor enhanced by bits of ginger steeping on the bottom of each bottle. The third, thirst-quenching Lemon, is made with just fresh-squeezed lemons. At 5 to 15 calories, they stand out among the swarm of bubbly waters in stores today. Available at Savenor’s Market, 160 Charles St., Boston, 617-723-6328; City Feed and Supply, 672 Centre St., Jamaica Plain, 617-524-1700; Thistle and Shamrock, 62 Walden St., Cambridge, 855-256-7266; or go to www.drinkgreenbee.com.
