Homemade Italian Sodas

I recently ordered an italian soda at a local restaurant (which turns out, isn’t italian at all). Then I thought, why can’t I make this at home? The ingredients were ridiculously simple. Ice, flavored simple syrup, sparkling water. That’s it. Combine in whatever order/amounts you wish, and enjoy! I added fresh raspberries since I had some on hand (add a splash of vodka for an evening cocktail).  I bought a small Torani raspberry syrup for a few dollars at World Market and later I realized I could have just made some from my raspberries. Oh well, maybe next time! This drink is perfect for summer evenings and group get-togethers.

Summer is a great time to add some quinoa to your life.  Stop by your local farmer’s market and pick up some fresh fruits and veggies – there is a good chance they will pair well with one of the healthiest whole grains out there.
