In the summer heat there’s nothing better than ice cold glass of soda. Let’s do sodas in style with flower syrups, using our Italian Soda Lovers Kit!
We specifically selected different assortments of our Elixirs for each of our Kits to match different wishes: one for the Margarita lovers, another for the Tiki fans but this one is for the times when we’d like to enjoy a fizzy drink without alcohol or have kids celebrating with their own special drinks.
Our Italian Soda Lovers Cocktail Kit is a genuine homage to this great culinary invention. No matter if you can’t really be in Italy, these delicious summer refreshments will immediately fly you to a lovely piazza. Plus they are super easy to prepare too.
Often, these sodas are made with fizzy drinks or syrups with so much artificial coloring and sugar that it stops one’s heart in an instant. Should you want to avoid that, the all natural, low calorie flower syrups of Floral Elixir Co. are the way to go!
The Italian Soda Lovers Kit contains: Cherry Blossom Elixir (check out our wonderful Cherry Blossom Cosmo recipe), Hibiscus Elixir, Lavender Elixir (see the Lavender Botanist recipe), Violet Elixir, and Lemon Verbena Elixir.
For today’s soda we chose to showcase our Hibiscus Elixir. We just love this vibrant and magenta hued flower, it’s not only gorgeous but full of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
In Italy, bartenders like to make something special out of anything (and that’s why we love them!) and that’s true for sodas as well. If you’d like to go all the way, pour some half&half into your drink or top it with some whipped cream and drink it while it’s ice cold!
Hibiscus Soda Ingredients:
6 ounces soda or plain water
1/2 ounce Hibiscus Elixir
Squeeze of fresh lemon
Optional: 1-2 tbsp Half&Half or whipped cream on top
Stir to combine in large ice filled glass and enjoy!
