Rhubarb Soda

Have you seen those new soda-making kitchen appliances?  Have you thought to yourself, "Maybe I should get one of those?" Well, if yes, you should! Go ahead! It's so worth it. We haven't bought carbonated water or soda since getting ours for Christmas, and our recycling bin has been much emptier. Plus, you can use whatever fruit you have on hand to make seasonal, flavored sodas. The SodaStream is a win-win for sure.

Tonight, we made a simple rhubarb syrup and then added it to the carbonated water we made with our soda-maker.

Here's how:
Bring equal parts rhubarb juice and sugar to a boil. So, for example, we had three cups rhubarb juice (we used a juicer, but a food processor would work too - just drain the juice off), so we added three cups sugar. Save and refrigerate. Add desired amount to your homemade carbonated water. We don't like our soda too sweet, so we added a few tablespoons to one liter.

So refreshing and yummy!

We have a quart of rhubarb syrup left....oh, the possibilities!
