Popping Water

Imagine my surprise at finding the recipe to a magical beverage invented for the Alvor series. Popping Water. In my head, this out-does any soda out there because it is naturally flavored with fairy-grown fruits. I mean, how can you begin to accomplish that in the kitchen?

Well, my friend Christy Dorrity put together a recipe and you are welcome to play around with it.

Tasty Tuesday-Popping Water

Imagine a place where you pluck a colorful flower-cup from the foilage and dip it into a carbonated spring. Laura Bingham's characters are lucky enough to find such a place in her book Alvor. Use basic lemon-lime flavored soda and add some flavorings and fruit juices for a refreshing splash.

Popping Water

1 can of lemon-lime soda
1 tsp vanilla or other flavoring (try lemon, grenadine, coconut, etc)
fresh fruit (try limes, lemons, oranges, cherries)

Combine ingredients in a frosty mug. Enjoy.
