Heather calls this natural soda ~ Italian soda without the artificial syrups that we so often see in this kind of beverage.

What could more fabulous than muddled fruits and fizzy water? Add a touch of your favorite natural sweetener if you wish. You can mash/muddle the berries on the bottom of the glass with a pestle or fork. It is quite fun actually!

You can also drink it out of a sparkly princess glass…

Use any seasonal fruits you have on hand.

You can also add mint leaves if you wish. Muddle them into the mix or simply garnish with them.

As great as this drink is for kids as is. This fizz would also make the perfect cocktail. Add your favorite spirits for a fruity ~ fizzy ~ boozy kick. A few ounces of light rum, vodka or gin would add a touch of celebration at showers and parties.

  1. I looked through so many of her recipes, but one I saw for sure that I will definitely be trying was her Apricot Glazed Ham and Biscuits. Looked wonderful, but yet easy enough for me to make.

  2. Omg basically all of the recipes under the Banana category, the Beans & Lentils category, and the Breads & Rolls category! Especially the Banana-Sweet Potato Bread. Mmmm :)
    Thanks a bunch for this!
