I’m a fresh squeezed, homemade, wanna know the ingredients “soda” pop kinda girl.
Definitely not an aspartame, disease-filled, crap-filled chemical Diet Coke kinda girl.
Ya with me?
And if you’ve seen the news lately, you’ve seen that there’s been fires all over San Diego.
It’s debiliaiting to watch the fires spread across the county, destroying memories, homes, & lives.
‘They’ ( who’s ‘they’ anyway? ) haven’t found out what’s the cause of the fires but there’s a gnarly Santa Ana sweeping SD. It’s been very sad last couple of days of our city. See more here.
On that note, lemme just say for SD standards, it’s also been hot as balls.
Like, seriously, seriously hotttttt as balls.
Hello F-ing Santa Ana winds! Geez.
So the other day I whipped up this lil refresher ( because Starbucks’ ‘Refreshers’ are full of shit ) for friends to stay cool:
Just for record: I’m not opposed to adding champagne to this.
ESP on a hot summer day.
Anyway, I like to shake this ‘soda’ mixture in a martini shaker BUT make sure to add the grapefruit Perrier afterwards. Let’s just say bubbles & a martini shaker are like oil and water— they don’t mix. You don’t want an overflowing mess, so add the Perrier on top after the fruit mixture been shaken. The pink color is from Suja’s delish flavor ‘Spark’ but you can sub pomegranate juice too ( use just a splash or two ).
Lil tip: I use my martini shaker ( w/ measurements on it ) ALL the time even when there’s no alcohol involved. I mix my own dressings & make sexy, DIY fruit mixtures ( with real fruit, not concentrate- get your mind outta the gutter ).
Try this summertime pink, grapefruit TSC soda & thank me later.
Also, please pray for San Diego! xx L
