‘Greening’ our family of 5 has gone a lot further than bringing our reusable bags to the grocery store. It also has changed what we buy while we’re there – and sometimes that means giving up what we’ve been raised on for more eco-friendly and even healthier options.  Like buying pop, for example. That’s why I want to take a minute to tell you how The Artisan Soda Workshop by Andrea Lynn has changed what we drink!

If I told you that you and your family could enjoy drinking all-natural versions of your favorite pops, would that intrigue you? And better yet, what if you could make them in your own kitchen, alone or with a friend at a fraction of the cost? Thanks to The Artisan Soda Workshop, now you can :)

With 70 delicious recipes (each with simple to follow step-by-step instructions) and dozens of eye-catching photos, the hubster and I are having a great time mixing up different drinks! In a nutshell, you make a syrup first using REAL ingredients (say good-bye to artificial flavoring & colours!) and then stir it into seltzer water, creating your own soda pop. It’s fast, fun and healthier because you benefit from all the nutrients coming from your fresh ingredients!

The best part about controlling every single ingredient, aside from health reasons is that we are able to customize our drinks to taste! So if I want my drink a little less sweet I scale back on the sweetener than I put in it (honey, agave syrup, sugar).

With natural and tasty ingredients like fresh lemon juice, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, what’s not to love?! I, for one, am really looking forward to the warmer weather approaching so we can take our drinks outside in the evenings for BBQs and get-togethers with our neighbours! Cheers to that! :) 

Want a copy? Find this book at your local library, independent bookstore or Amazon!

So tell me, are you a big ‘pop’ drinker?
