Homemade Citrus Soda

Monday, February 6, 2017

​I made homemade citrus soda. Like Ting in St. Kitts-Nevis. Cold medicine. Bitter, sour, and sweet — with Vitamin C. Next glass will have a shot of light rum.

Grate rind from two pink grapefruits, two Meyer lemons, one lime, then extract juice

Add juice with rind to a saucepan with 12 ounces of lime simple syrup, and heat to warm. Steep for 30 minutes. Strain and cool.

This yielded a quart of base.

Mix equal amounts of base and sparkling water, and serve over ice.
