I absolutely love the recipes in this book. There are so many types from the tame to the insane. They are easy to make. I didn’t get adventuresome and try the fermentation process though.
One thing that I loved is that I can used my Soda Stream to make my own seltzer water and then flavor it with the various different recipes. They work very well together.
Of course, some of the more decadent recipes had rather obscure ingredients. I am sure I could track those down if I wanted to try them out as well.
One of the most refreshing recipes that I tried was for the cucumber celery soda. It may sound strange, but it was delicious. It was definitely a nice way to cool off after coming inside from the torturous Florida heat.
Have trouble getting your kids to take their vitamins? There are recipes for carbonated vitamin waters that are also nice tasting.
