Quench your thirst this summer with a refreshing glass of homemade orange blossom blackberry soda.
I’’m taking a little time off to adjust to life with a newborn, but I have some super talented guest posters stopping in over the next couple of weeks that you are going to love. Next up is Meg from Beard & Bonnet with her refreshing Orange Blossom and Blackberry Soda.
I don’t know about you, but I just cannot seem to get enough fresh berries lately!
I literally hoard berries in the summer – My kids and I eat them by the pint in lieu of breakfast, I freeze them by the sheet pan full and I make syrups for drizzling over ice cream or pancakes. Although, if I am being totally honest here those syrups most often are used for mixing up homemade sodas and cocktails.
When Sylvie asked if I would share a recipe with her readers while she was enjoying some time with her baby I just happened to be sipping on this homemade orange blossom and blackberry soda for the first time. As I brainstormed what to make I realized that this is the perfect summer recipe to introduce myself to all of you!
I love recipes that are versatile and can be used in lots of different ways like this one! Plus, a big jar of this syrup is a great gift to give a friend like Sylvie that might be taking a little break from the kitchen.
