Just yesterday, the First Department of the Appellate Division of NY unanimously ruled against Mayor Bloomberg’s Soda Ban by upholding a former NY Supreme Court ruling. All this soda talk got us thinking about soda in our office, especially since I’m a recovering Diet Coke drinker. I pulled out Andrew Schloss’ Homemade Soda book from my cookbook collection. This book has homemade soda recipes, often incorporating fresh fruits and herbs. I found a Sour Cherry Soda recipe in the book that even Bloomberg could like. Yes, there is sugar in the recipe, but you can control the sweetness by adding less sugar. Grab the last of the sour cherries from your local farmer’s market and give this recipe a whirl. Whether you agree with the Soda Ban or not, we think you’ll all love this!
PS – How great would this Cherriade drink go with this party?
