Our new Hard Cider Making & Homemade Fermented Soda class is coming up soon and we thought that a few cocktail recipes are in order. Hard cider is the new beverage du jour, but unfortunately, many of the brands hitting the stores taste like Fizzies. (But do we really need to tell you how much better things taste when you make them yourself?)
New sodas are also hitting the shelves, though mostly at stores that have the words “Larder,” “Provisions,” or an ampersand (&) in their names. Homemade soda is still the best non-alcoholic sparkler we’ve ever tasted. Once you learn how to make your own with a “ginger-bug” starter, you can begin inventing a myriad of flavors. The recipes that follow include some that feature sodas as well.
