Why is the good stuff always expensive?
I just got to taste my first Dry Soda (lemongrass). Yum.
On my birthday I ran across a few remaining bottles of Dry Soda at an international grocery store. I first read about dry soda a few years ago on Not Martha and was intrigued. I was even in Seattle a while ago and forgot to purchase a bottle or four (well I did stop by a grocery store that sold 4-packs of one single flavor). Since each bottle cost 2.19 I only picked up the two flavors that appealed to me most (lemongrass and lavender).
Back to the lemongrass soda. I was a little worried that it would end up reminding me of some sort of lemon-lime soda. It didn't, I mean it was sort of there but not really and the flavor was definitely different, subtle but present. I also think the bubbles were different, they felt smaller. A 12 oz has 50 calories (opposed to 140 for traditional soda) and 14 grams of sugar (opposed to 39 for 7-up). It is sweetened with cane sugar. It has beautiful packaging.
I put off trying this soda for almost 2 weeks, now I want to hop in the car and make the 30 minute drive to the store where I found them and buy more. Not that I would, but I want to. Luckily I have a lavender soda waiting for me in the fridge as soon as I figure out the right time to drink a lavender flavored soda. Maybe I should go make some citrus-basil cupcakes to go with my lavender soda.
