Strawberry Soda

Strawberry Soda
Happy Fourth of July everyone!  This red strawberry
soda is the perfect easy cooler for today’s celebrations.  If you’re
anything like John and I, some vodka in here would be a great adult
addition to the kid’s drinks!  What a great way
to enjoy the nation’s independence.John and I had everyone over to the new place to
see it for the first time a few weeks ago(since it was a big empty shell
that is).  When we first planned this out, we had just went strawberry
picking so this strawberry soda seemed like
the perfect fit.  John and I have been wanting to try this for ages,
but we’ve never found the time.  I’m glad to say it was worth the wait –
although we might not be drinking anything but homemade soda EVER

Tonight we are taking in the fireworks in Boston, a
tradition that we started since our first Fourth of July together.
There is something about the Pops’ traditional music, the Charles, the
skyline in the background, and the fireworks
that makes today magical.  Watching the celebration tonight on the
banks of one of the oldest American cities, a city that I fiercely love,
I am overwhelmed by how much I love being an American.  It’s a great
day to remember that.

Strawberry Soda (adapted from

Serves: 6 (36 ounces of strawberry soda)

Strawberry Syrup  (1 cup)
16 ounces strawberries
4 teaspoons white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar

Strawberry Soda (6 8-ounce glasses)
1 cup strawberry syrup (above)
48 ounces of Seltzer
Ice, if desired

To make the strawberry syrup place strawberries in a blender and pulse until smooth.  Strain the strawberries into a large pot, pressing to get as much juice as possible.  Discard the pulp.  Add the vinegar and sugar to the juice.  Bring the strawberry juice to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 5 minutes.  Allow to cool and store in the fridge.

To make the strawberry soda, pour 16 ounces of seltzer into a pitcher.  Add strawberry syrup and stir until combined.  Top with remaining seltzer and stir.  Top with ice, before serving, if desired.
