I am SUCH a huge fan of lemons and limes. Seriously, I love sour stuff. So I love that summer gives me every excuse to devour foods and drinks using these tart fruits. Another thing I love is all natural soda. I am not going to pretend that I am one of those fancy healthy people that never drinks soda. I probably have a cup of soda once a week. I wouldn't say I'm a soda person. I never usually order it at restaraunts cause I can't finish a whole glass. Something about it just starts to nauseate me after half a cup.
I don't know if it's the corn syrup, all the chemicals, or just a mixture of everything, but I cannot handle mass quantities of soda. What I can drink in excess are all natural sodas though! And sometimes I can't get my hands on the ones I like.... (Blue Sky Dr. Becker being my favorite). The other night I got inspired to juice some lemons and limes and make a homemade soda. So easy. Barely a recipe, but here's what I did...
I squeezed all the juice out of a half a lime and a half a lemon into a blender. I then cut out some pulp to throw in the blender as well. Silly me didn't realize I don't have a juicer.
I like my soda REALLY tart so I ended up squirting a bit more lemon juice in the blender.
I poured in a spoon and a half of sugar. For all my super healthy conscious friends out there, try using Stevia instead! Then blend it all up nice and good. Add a little bit of your carbonated water to help the mixing process.
Pour into a cup and stir with ice and carbonated water! You're done. Seriously, this tasted SO much like sprite. A little more tart than sprite, but that's only because I used a lot of juice.
Have a great Tuesday everyone! I'm already looking forward to the weekend...
