Easy Fruit “Soda”

Easy Fruit Sodas

When its hot- and even when its not- cold, fizzy drinks are great. Want a super easy, super tasty drink you can make at home? No special equipment required and better for you than commercial pop. I use 2 ingredients- club soda and either concentrated fruit juice or fruit syrups. In every grocery store you can find juice concentrates in the freezer section. Just place a spoonful of the concentrated juice in your glass- add club soda and stir gently to mix. Add ice and serve. Ready when you want it. .

One benefit is that you can control how much juice to add. Make it more or less sweet to suit your taste. You can also use fruit syrups- sold in lots of grocery stores and beverage stores. Read the label. The ones I buy have 2 ingredients- fruit juice- which is listed first and sugar which is listed second. That’s  it. No high fructose corn syrup or a bunch of artificial ingredients.

I’ve make “soda” from frozen grape juice, orange juice, apple juice and pineapple juice. I’ve used  syrups made from blueberries, sour cherries, strawberries and blackberries.  You can use them individually or do combos. They are fun for kids to make, too.

Dress them up with fancy ice cubes. I add small pieces of fruit or mint leaves to ice cube trays and then fill with water and freeze.  Also nice when guests stop over.

Is this stuff better for you than water? I suppose not. I actually drink water most of the time and really like it. Sometimes we need something different. For me this is a nice option- fizzy fruit juice.
