This fizzy drink uses cold club soda, blueberries and just a few drops of water enhancer.
Tip#1: Do your blueberries sink to the bottom when adding them to drinks? Just pop them into the freezer for a few minutes and they will float.
Tip # 2: Prepare a bit of the flavored water and pour it into an ice cube tray. That way as the cubes melt on a hot day you won’t be left with a watered down drink!
My family loves to create other favor combinations too. I also freeze pure lemon juice then add the cubes to plain water, cola, or use them whenever a recipes calls for it. Raspberries in plain water taste fabulous in lemonade.
Pour yourself a glass, add a fun striped straw and enjoy!
