My fascination and addiction with lingonberries (only the ones from Ikea though) is still going on strong! Today, I have made a lingonberry soda. It's actually quite simple. Instead of using water to make juice, I used seltzer water to give it some fizziness. Best of all, I just eyeballed ingredients (no extra things to wash!).
Personally, I didn't think it was as fizzy as a coke, but it still gave some nice fizz on your tongue. (Keep in mind that I tried it after taking pictures, hosing a table down, and etc., so yours might be more fizzy than mine)
You'll need 2 ingredients:
1 part of lingonberry syrup and 4 parts of seltzer water
Use a pretty, fancy wine glass if you feel like it. I did.
Pour the lingonberry syrup into the glass first. If you are trying to pour the syrup into the glass with one hand, take a picture with the other, and look through the camera screen all at the same time, try your very very best not to make a mess.
Enjoy! It's refreshing and simple as ABC! Even a kindergartener could make this! And best of all, it makes me feel all adult-like, since it looks somewhat like an alcoholic beverage (especially with that pretty wine glass)!
Then pour 4 parts of seltzer water into the lingonberry syrup. You see, you don't even have to mix the mixture! It just incorporates! Put some ice cubes in if you want.
Note: You can eyeball the ingredients.
1 part of lingonberry syrup, chilled
4 parts of seltzer water, chilled
ice cubes, optional
Pour lingonberry syrup into a cup. Pour seltzer water in. Add ice cubes if desired. That's it! Best when you drink it under the sun!
P.S. I could only dream that this post was sponsored. Then maybe I could get rich from this blog. But no, this isn't sponsored! I wish!
P.S.S. This made it to Tastespotting! Yipee! My very first photo to make it there!
