Hibiscus Italian Summer Soda
Flowery is the New Fruity - Drink Your Flowers!
No matter if you can’t really be in Italy, this delicious summer refreshment will immediately fly you to a lovely piazza. Plus, it is 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!
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!
- 6 ounces club soda or sparkling 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. Top with cream if desired. SANTÉ!
