Spindrift Sodas: Fruity Sodas That Taste Like Homemade

One of my goals for the blog this year was to occasionally feature foods made by other people. Because as good as the things I make are, once in a while it’s nice to shine a light on the good stuff that other folks are working hard on.

Spindrift is most definitely something that deserves a little praise. I don’t regularly drink soda, but I do like a the combination of fruit juice and sparkling water. When we have juice (or a homemade fruit shrub) in the house, I will often pour myself a glass of bubbly water and a splash of the juice as motivation to keep working through the afternoon.

Part of the reason I like to make these fruit spritzers myself is that I don’t like a super sweet soda. Even when I’m out in the world, I’m hesitant to pick up one of those fruit-based drinks because they’re nearly always too sugary for me. Happily, I’ve found that Spindrift has a really good handle on sweetness. I found that the blackberry soda was particularly well balanced.

This summer, I know what I’ll be reaching for when I want a special treat drink. If you see them out in the wild and you like this sort of thing, consider picking one up to try.

Disclosure: Spindrift sent me half a dozen bottles for tasting and review. However, my opinions are all my own and I was not compensated for this post.

  • I don’t think we can find Spindrift here in rural NS Canada, but I do agree with you that some sparkling juices (especially homemade) are deliciously refreshing and better for our bodies. I’m always trying new ones.

  • Marisa: Didn’t know where to put this so decided to put this in the most recent post.

    This is a suggestion/idea.

    I would love to see a recipe for a puree/sauce/coulis made with pears and calvados.

    Hope you don’t mind the suggestion/idea.


  • Lovely. So glad to see more people talking about “fine” sodas. 🙂 (My heart still lies with Portland’s Hotlips soda…mmm..fruity.) I’d love to know about some other fruit spritzer recipes. Thanks!
