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.
