Strawberry Soda Fix

Mixing carbonated water or seltzer with flavored syrup is suddenly fresh to me again. As a child, I tried to mimic a Shirley Temple out of grenadine syrup and 7 Up.  When we were in Tuguegarao, I noticed a Torani strawberry syrup on the counter of a coffee shop and the idea of making a strawberry soda quickly came to mind. Hershey’s Strawberry Syrup is the most convenient alternative we have in Laoag. I didn’t see the sugar-free variation though.

I mixed in about 5 tablespoons of the syrup with a chilled can of  Schweppes soda water. The taste was kinda old-fashioned, but appealing. The 7 Up version was sweeter and quite like the Shirley Temple I used to make:)

I try to stay away from soda, but there are times when you need a fix. C’est la vie.
